Street Fighter HD gets classic box art treatment

Remember that crazy-awesome press kit that Capcom created for the release of Mega Man 9? Well the company has decided to do something similar for the release of another hotly anticipated downloadable title, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.

In addition to the packaging and asset disc, all of which is covered with some truly fantastic art, the kit comes stuffed with all kinds of Street Fighter goodies. These include: Ryu's very own head band, a Chun-Li figurine, a comic book, and a magnetic board complete with a bunch of static cling SF characters.

Like the MM9 kit, Capcom is considering making a small number of these, 300 in this case, available to the general public via the Capcom Store. Be sure to keep an eye on the Capcom Unity blog if you want to pick one up, because if and when they do go on sale, they will undoubtedly go very quickly. And don't forget that SSFIITHDR will finally be released this week, on both Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

This is the sh!t that sway's a reviewer's opinion

Every review site: KOTAKU (even boast about it), IGN, Gamespot, EGM, Play, etc. receive these "promotional packages" as a "gift" along with a review copy of the game. These "promotional packages," which are normally always awesome (Eye Of Judgment Promotional Package) never become available to public or in limited, very expensive releases.

This and the free expensive meals, the free hotel stays (MGS4 reviewer retreat), free swag (posters, shirts, jackets, toys, figures), exclusive interviews/footage all soften the deal 99% of the time.

It's just sad how bull the critic world is. It's like the media mafia
