This just in "Disgruntled Europeans cry out in agony after months of waiting, when they found out they'll receive SSFIITHDR mere hours before the midnight launch of SFIV."
I'm REALLY sorry about this...really. This is an insult. You get SFHD on the same day SFIV comes out? This some kind of joke? I viewed SFHD as a warm-up for SFIV. Capcom failed you guys this time around, and as a big SF fan, I would be VERY pissed by this. 12
The Street Fighter II HD remix was a great idea because it updated one of my favourite classic games with some new graphics. Like theTwelve says, it was a great way to warm-up/ create interest for SF IV. But UK/Europe didn't get it. I did play the demo on Xbox Live and loved it, but for fighting games I prefer the PS d-pad so I decided to wait... ..and what has happened? Capcom release SFII the day before the official release of SF IV. I actually received my copy of SF IV through the post today. I've been playing it. I love it. It looks beautiful. I just don't see myself paying for this older version now. I think Capcom & SCEE have missed out on a lot of sales. The people who were going to be buying this are most likely playing Street Fighter IV. Which I recommend to everyone - but the people I played online are too good!
I feel bad they get this game now, however I still recommend getting both this and the ce SF4 edition. The movie was pretty good and the game is great. I still like HD remix too so I say get both if only one SF4 is new yet remix is tried and true.
F***************************** *********KING HELL. Did HELL just freeze over?!?!?!?
LMAO! Talk about late to the party. It's good to be American! :)
lol im not paying $22 for this. Why is it so expensive over here?
They can expect pitiful sales, a day before SFIV and at that ridiculous price point?! There really is no end to the stupidity of SCEE.
*claps* Bravo, lads. Could've cashed in on the pre-SFIV hype, but you're too late to the party now, everyone's too drunk on the other Kool-Aid at this point.
Do they even realize this is an anti-marketing strategy? If they released SFIIHD in the end of November, everyone would have buy it "Oh it's nearly christmas, SFII is awesome and i'll be waiting for SFIV with that", but now... Who would buy it when SFIV release the next day? What kind of dirty idiot had that wonderful idea? (btw, thanks for the hidden malware, "ThatGamingSite")
The person who was in charge of releasing SF2HD in EU needs to be fired and go home catching his wife having an affair with the neighbor.
My UK copy of SF4 just arrived... What on earth are they thinking releasing this 1 day before the official 4 release date. I'm really pleased with my PS3 (Thankfully I bought SF2 HD on the US PSN in December) but the Euro PSN is the biggest pile of crap ever! Thankgod for other region accounts!
Jeez. I'll post this now for any of SCEE reading this. Now nearly all PSN games has caught up on EU PSN in the recent weeks, DON'T FREAKING EVER LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN, don't dare delay Cellfactor or Bomberman Ultra...YOU DARE. All regions the same time or NONE AT ALL language translation or not, this takes the p**s.
How about the Blast Factor trophy patch? Hope that one is just around the corner too...
Just got the Echochrome patch last night, anything's possible, I guess.
The game i wanted to play to keep me entertained until Street Fight IV comes out, is relased 24 hours before Street Fighter IV is mine?? Fudge u SCEE
could be capcom
It was capcom, they couldnt get their game to run its online properly so scee kept failing it.
Its SCEE's fault, since they are the ones who needs to localise it, I think.
Cram it up your ass SCEE. If I'm making a SF purchase it'll be SF4.
I got a copy of SF4 yesterday. My advice is unless you are a Street Fighter collector who has to buy every game they release, just stick with the SFHDremix2 download. If you do pick up SF4 it's not like you'll be disappointed, but trust me you won't be disppointed if you don't buy it either.
Thats my feeling as well, nostalgic memories of the past are hyping this game up, 3d models dont make much a difference.
What else is new...moving on
Wait u expect me to buy SF2 when SF4 is a day away!! HELL NO!
if this had of came out a while ago i may have picked it up but with sf4 only a day later if i get any i'd obv go fo sf4. I guess the hardcore sf fans will still love this addition to the store though :)
We should get it for free with all the fing around we've got through.
The worst timing in videogame history?
Whats the point in buying SFHD when SF4 gets released the day after? F**k SFHD
wow...just wow... it took SCEE about 4 months to get this game to EU owners. shame on them. the only way this game will sell now is if it gets patched in for trophies.
I demand a price cut. This takes the p**s.
lol are you fuc90830924king kidding me?
Do yourself a favor Europe...BUY A XBOX 360!!!
No.. ppl will not buy SF games for 360.. cause the controls sucks.
The Xbox 360 is a piece of garbage i wouldn't poison my ultra cool cinema room with that crap. PS3 all the way.
The only reason I could see getting both is SF2HD Remix plays faster then SF4 and you get Deejay/T-Hawk. Other then that SF4 is where it's at now and it's nothing but pure WIN!
I don't think I will bother, to little to late they might have had a sale if they released it the same time as other regions but it's way to late.
