Hey everyone! This is Derek Neal, and I’m the producer on Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition. I’m here to tell you all the things that make this game awesome. You might want to take a seat and get comfortable, because that’s quite a list!

Available August 23rd, Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition takes one of the most revered fighting games in CAPCOM’s history and brings it Online. Quite frankly, the feature set we’ve included in this downloadable is jaw dropping. In addition to upscaled graphics, we have hundreds of trials, dynamic challenges, and a huge Vault full of all kinds of unlockables. We have multiple training modes, integrated Tournament support, and 8 player lobbies (with spectator mode!). We have GGPO for near-lagless online play, a robust replay system, and the ability to upload matches straight to YouTube – from within the game! All of this, and much, much more.

We are also very excited to be the lead title in the brand new PSN PLAY program. Now with PSN PLAY, you’re able to pre-order this game now. This is actually the first time a pre-order program has been offered for a downloadable PSN title, and we couldn’t be happier than to help lead that charge. The pre-order period for the game runs through August 18th, and people who pre-order during this period will receive a special gift: a custom Third Strike theme for their PS3! Here’s a sneak peek of what it will look like:

If that wasn’t enough, we are also announcing that we’ll be giving a free gift to everyone who purchases the game between now and through September 19th: a free key that unlocks the hidden boss character, Gill. This boss character is a ton of fun to play, and can be used in all of our casual game modes, such as Arcade and Player Match. (He is not available in Ranked matches or in Tournaments.)

Finally, PlayStation Plus members will be excited to hear that they’re getting a special deal: an additional 20% off on this already great value! So what are you waiting for?! Pre-order now. Buy this game…it’s time you realized that it’s the THIRD STRIKE THAT COUNTS!

Already got it pre-ordered! I’m a bit rusty on my SF skills because of playing MK, but I’m getting this pronto! One question though, I’ve never played 3rd strike so I’m not sure who is all in it. Is Cammy in it? I hope because she’s my main character with Ken right behind her. Either way, CANT WAIT!

Instead of re-releasing the same games over & over milking their fans to death how bout Capcom actually fixing the horrible quality of their games. I bought SF4 including the DLC only to discover how truly awful it was. Like a few other games with notoriously bad online full of lag SF4 actually was so slow offline it was unplayable, I could play 2 or 3 matches as it got progressively slower & slower until it stalled completely. Crapcom you need to fix the games you have out before releasing them again and again. It took 3 versions of SF4 and I can’t trust you enough to find out if you actually got it right in the end. I’m not buying games over and over in vain hopes you might actually make them playable. Stop treating your fans like a bottomless cash machine.

Pre-ordered!
Does anyone knows what time will be able to download and play it?
I’m so hyped I’ll probably spend the whole day checking!

There will be no DRM guys, already stated by Chris Svensson at the Capcom Unity Forums

Every video I’ve seen of this game the control prompts always show the joystick, always. Someone tell me if the Dpad is usable.. for the love of God – I need to know ^_^

Pre-ordered mine just as it was being offered. I’m new at this game, so I’ll expect to get my butt kicked.

I was gonna preorder third strike but the psn plus discount of 20% isn’t working. Is this a bug or did I miss the date.??

Is anyone else showing that Third Strike isn’t 20% off for PS Plus members? I still see it as $14.99 but the other PLAY titles have the PS Plus discount and emblem on them.

@TuttiCicero (answering number 57)

Can I still preorder today and get the bonus?

@lbpmagician

Yes. I just pre-ordered and got the theme.

They should give the theme to everyone who buys the game. i don’t get why you have to pre-order to get this. It’s not like they need to count how many preorders they have before shipping copies.

lbpmagician said:

August 19th, 6:19 am

Thanks, I got it too.

And yeah, doesn’t make much sense, besides getting our money earlier :S

Oh man. I went out and bought 2 $20 PSN cards to preorder everything, but I guess I’m too late.

From what I read the only thing you miss from the preorder is just the static theme. The static themes are ruined by the PS Play logo in the bottom left anyway. You can still get the free dlc+the 20% discount when the game in put on the store.
