Default Street Fighter IV Final North American Box Art and Details Revealed

StageSelect has revealed the final North American Box Art details for Street Fighter IV Collector's Edition.






Detail on what it includes:


North American deets for the long-awaited Collector?s Edition! We?re not just throwing a craptacular ?behind-the-scenes? video and ?art book? with less images than you can find on any website into a cheesey tin box. Instead, we?re bringing you a gorgeous package that includes:

  1. The game (duh)
  2. A limited-edition (ie., not sold anywhere else) figurine ? Ryu in the PS3 box, C. Viper hotness in the 360 flavor. Decisions, decisions...
  3. Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind: a 65 minute anime movie -- created by Studio 4C -- that sets up the story of SFIV by explaining events post-SFII. BluRay disc in the PS3 box! The Xbox version is a 360 game disc that outputs the movie at 720P, not a DVD.
  4. A mini-strategy guide from Prima, written by the same people doing the full-on guide and illustrated by Udon Comics
  5. CD soundtrack. Rock SFIV stage chunez in your car!
  6. ?Plus some secret additional downloadable content that we?re not quite ready to reveal at this point. Look for more announcements soon!
All this wrapped up nicely in a box that features Ikeno-san?s instant classic illustration of Ryu, with images of the other characters on the sides.

why do they have to do this to me?

I want Ryu action figure and bluray disc movie but 360 game :_(

I guess I should buy the PS3 version then just return the game itself and replace it with a basic 360 copy. . .

I never thought I'd say this but I'm going to get the PS3 version instead of the Xbox 360 version on this one...

several reasons
1. I'd rather have a Blu-Ray for the movie instead of the weird Xbox 360 movie disc
2. Ryu > C Viper
3. As much as I love the 360 controller and hate the PS3 controller the Xbox 360 d-pad sucks so I'd much rather use the PS pad for fighting games
4. I'm an achievement whore and SF games have had hard achievements in the past that only serve to frustrate me so ... I'd rather just enjoy the game
5. Fighting games online make your Xbox Live rep plummet with all the soar losers, so I'd be more likely to play online with the PS3 version

The down sides to not getting the 360 version
-I wont be able to play online against my friends that also get this game
-I wont have a complete 360 CE collection anymore
-The 360 version will likely be worth more than the PS3 version in the long run

I'll still get pictures of the 360 version though since I've got a friend who is picking it up... so that works out

Why isn't there a Ken figure for the 360 version? Also why not just come out with a DVD lol

I don't understand why the UK versions get both figures regardless of console, whilst the US version only gets one each depending on which one you choose.

the UK typically get's better CE games than the US does...

I mean even when both get the same included items the UK ends up getting a better looking/higher quality case.

if nothing else you get more options, with several CEs to choose from for a particular game.

Not quite true. There are lots of American CE's that are much better than the crap we received here. The US Resident Evil V package is amazing compared to what we're getting

well, it's not a hard fast rule, but more often then not I find myself wishing for the UK version over what we get...

take a look at Alone in the dark, you get that awesome box with all the goodies, we get an extra slab of plastic in the case with a soundtrack disc

saints row 2, we get the same stuff but you get the cool looking gun case

then there are other games like Battlefield Bad Company, and Stranglehold where we got regular plastic cases and you get the same goodies but SteelBook as well

you got a fallout 3 release with a figurine, you got a MGS4 release with a figurine, you got an Assassin's creed release with a nice big figureine while the US release was only about 2" tall.

not to mention the numerous games that you get in SteelBook that we don't even get CEs for...

About the only game I can think of where I liked the US CE better was Devil May Cry 4... everything else that's been released are either the same or I liked the UK release better.

RE5 isn't out yet... so you don't know if they're planning on screwing us over at the last minute like they love to do so frequently.
