Street Fighter IV Invades PS3, San Francisco

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jan 21, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Hundreds of fans got their hands on the PLAYSTATION 3 version of Street Fighter IV recently, as Capcom held its final round of Street Fighter Club in San Francisco. I caught up with Seth Killian, who (quite favorably) compared the PS3 version of the game with the arcade, as well as John Diamonon, who I thought you all might wanna meet, seeing as he’s a staple here on the blog.

Oh, and a PROTIP from me: The optional install for SFIV is well worth a bit of your hard drive space – it drives load times in between matches down to almost nothing.

One final note from Capcom: PlayStation gamers will soon be able to experience Resident Evil 5 for themselves as the intense new two-level demo will be downloadable on the PlayStation Network for the PLAYSTATION 3 on February 2, 2009. With three modes of action- single-player with AI controlled support, split-screen two-player co-op and two-player co-op across PlayStation Network- the demo will give fans an in-depth glimpse into the game a month before it launches on Friday, March 13, 2009.

And as for John D, he still has yet to accept my SUMWZSF2TU:CE challenge . . . my Ken vs. whoever he wants he wants to have his ass kicked as.

Because I know John will eventually read this, don’t sing it; bring it.

    For the record, he took me down in 3 rounds, Ken vs Ken, I believe.

    I took him off guard in the first round, and it wasn\’t even close in the final 2. He\’s the real deal.

It’s good to see CAPCOM supporting the PS3 with these amazing games.

*laughs* Of course I merged my account, Jeff! You know how long I’ve been waiting to do that.

And I believe John’s good, but ain’t nothing like a good ass-whuppin, and it’s about time he had one.

How about an Underground fight club for SFIV in Canada, eh? Nothing too interesting really happens to the neighbours of the north… but i’m glad to see that their is a demo for RE5!

Any news about some new network games to be issued? like a Flock demo? or maybe some classic RE games for ps1 classics?

I remember hearing about home spaces for sf4 and re5 being out around the respective launches of the two titles a long time ago but recently its been all quiet on that front, I was wondering if anyone could at least say if a capcom home announcement would be coming soon or not

+ SpyDudeFX on January 21st, 2009 at 1:44 pm said:

RE5 sounds awesome, co-op on PSN is going to be amazing. I can’t wait for this. Now about the new PSN Blog features, it would be ideal to have a “remember me” feature. I hate having to deal with the tedious PSN login process of being redirecting twice, and then it doesn’t put you back where you started lol
