Is Street Fighter IV Sold Out In Japan? Not Quite...


"When I read this item about Street Fighter IV being sold out in Japan on Capcom's blog (thanks Daniel from Facebook), I was pretty surprised.

I was especially confused because, for a game that is completely sold out and with no copies to sell anywhere, I had no problem picking up a copy yesterday from my local game shop. In fact, I saw a a full box of Street Fighter IV games. Well, I guess it is possible (although highly unlikely) that in the last 24 hours, every copy in the country was gobbled up. Being the skeptic that I am, I decided to spend 5 minutes investigating."

You cannot track every single store.

I think they meant the major ones.

Or maybe, day one shipment have been sold out, and those stores have restocked...

Any way, I don't really care for that, SFIV looks awesome and I can't wait to put my hand on it.

Seems like a strange thing to debate about. Why not just wait until the official sales stats come in next month?
