Yesterday I saw in our local shop a xbox 360 copy of Street Fighter IV. I was surprised coz I thought the game was to be released 2/17. Anyone already played this? Impressions? Thanks.

Doesn't that mean the ship date is the 17th and it will really be there no the 18th?

No. Ship date was 16th, and it is now out 17th. I'll prob get PS3 version cos of the control pad.

I played a (lee) at a friends place last week. Damn nice game. über cheap last boss, seems he can cancel out your moves a lot during the second round.
It feels like playing any old sf2 and that's a good thing I think, just some slight changes to game mechanics. I like the artistic approach though some character faces do look a bit rough. Not related to the game but fighting games and 360 controller don't work well together. I kept missing great opportunities due to the lazy d-pad causing my character to jump instead of executing specials.

I'm expecting my ps3 collectors edition this Friday and man I can't wait!!!! I'm also considering getting one of those arcade like sticks, as long as they are compatible with Soul Calibur 4 as well.

My PS3 Collector's Edition should ship out tomorrow and get to me by Thursday. I can't wait. I have played this series since the original Street Fighter. I spent way to much money on this game over the years from quarters in the arcade to almost every console I have owned.

thank god I cant play fighting games any more since my wrist injury. They used to suck every bit of my idle time and then the frustration and control throwing. Its all past me now. No more fighting games, unless they invent something that does not require the use of my right hand :D

Ugh... I hate all of you that got the collectors edition... I went to preorder it but they were all sold out :(... got stuck with the normal version... hopefully I will be getting mine in about an hour.

Yeah, this game really shows how bad the dpad is for 360. It's too bad cause it's by far the best controller I've ever used except for that one thing. Other than that, the game is a blast!

analog sticks are even worse

but speaking of d-pad, to bad that is a bit hard to find.

Told you guys! Gamestop always does that crap.

Might have to finish drilling the holes for my arcade stick this weekend. Hopefully I don't get that much school work to do so I can finish it.

Yeah I saw that a while ago. I'm not really a hardcore fan of the game or anything so I can't find myself buying a 5th controller or a new case simply for one game. Not to mention I would have to probably get 2 so anyone else who wanted to play wouldn't be playing at a disadvantage.

Might want to check again, my Gamestop had like 100 copies. :p

BTW if you're a PS3 owner, install the game data first thing - takes about 10 minutes but it beats waiting for 30+ sec load times in between fights. Oh and you might want to mute your TV while you're waiting.

Wow, for the first time my gamestop actually had it on the ship date. Granted they only had it for people who preordered. Time to try it out!

Got it today for PS3. Out of Collectors on PS3, but that's ok. 160 AUD is a bit rich for a game + figures and a DVD.

They had a heap for 360, but as I told the clerk. I can't stand the 360 dpad. He agreed. ::):

Unlocked Akuma and Gouken so far, I'll work on Seth this weekend. If anyone needs to know how to do it let me know, it's simpler than people on GameFAQs make it out to be. The game is actually better than I'd expected and I'm having a lot of fun. Unfortunately I could not connect to any network games, but I'll try again tomorrow.

As for the arcade mode, it's a blast except for Seth (the last boss) who is just cheap. It's one of those "insta-counter" AIs that makes it all but impossible to beat using normal tactics for your character - you have to rely on quick jabbing and sweep kicks to beat him. For such a great single-player experience aside from that, it's very disappointing for the last boss to be so frustratingly difficult (even on Very Easy). It does temper the enjoyment somewhat. Fortunately he can be beaten by any character using the same tactics (pray he doesn't teleport + body slam over and over, get in sweep range and sweep till he dies), and projectile-users have it even better. I haven't tried it on a difficultly higher than Medium yet, though.
