Capcom: Street Fighter IV Ships Over 2 Million Worldwide

Congratulations to Capcom - they deserve it!

*And note, I think when they say SHIPPED they already made money off the 2 million; whether the game(s) were sold in stores is irrelevant to Capcom anymore. The fact that stores even bothered to order that many games from them means that the game is in high demand; people love this game.

Capcom's "Street Fighter IV" Breaks the Two Million Mark!

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) is proud to announce that it has shipped two million copies of "Street Fighter IV", the newest title in the company’s popular series, "Street Fighter".

The all new "Street Fighter IV" has the unmistakable feel of a 2D fighting game and is jam-packed with beloved characters from previous iterations. Beautiful graphics only possible with the newest game consoles, combined with various new additions to the combat system have created a title that can be enjoyed by both fighting game and "Street Fighter" fans alike.

As a bonus, the multi-platform console versions (Xbox 360™ and PLAYSTATION®3) boast an array of additional characters. The original “Street Fighter” was released in 1987, and was then followed up in 1991 by the legendary hit "Street Fighter II".

The series revolutionized combat systems in games, and established the fighting game genre. Since then, "Street Fighter" has been a global hit, selling over 500,000
arcade machines and 27 million console games.

Beginning last year, Capcom has continued to move ahead with its "Street Fighter" 20th anniversary project through successive releases of new arcade machines, console games, and various events such as the “Street Fighter IV National Tournament”. In addition, under its “Single Content Multiple Usage" strategy, Capcom will release the Hollywood movie "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" on February 28th, 2009. The movie was developed in order to help rebuild the “Street Fighter” brand by drawing in new fans and reinvigorating fans of old. In fruition of its policies, Capcom has achieved the feat of breaking the two million copy mark despite the economic crisis with this first iteration of the “Street Fighter” series in 11 years.

At Capcom, not only do we strive to make entertaining and profitable games, but we are always endeavoring to lucratively develop our popular franchises in other media in ways that will please the fans.

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some things...in a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:

The CD-R King USB Arcade Stick on the Playstation 3 - An Honest (But Not Cynical) Opinion

(*Pictures included below. I also have a picture of the BUTTON CONFIGURATION Screen for Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3, configured for use with the CDR-King USB Arcade Stick. This will surely be useful for anyone considering to buy the CD-R King USB Arcade Stick. Mapping the buttons on the CD-R King stick can be quite tedious, with the way SFIV is set up for button mapping.)

I spent a (relatively) small amount of money on one of those generic USB Arcade Sticks that they're selling over in CD-R King (the stick cost PHP 550). The thing is, arcade sticks for the Playstation 3 have become extremely rare now that Street Fighter IV is out. Playing on the PS3 controller is workable, but gives me a sore left thumb.

It's one of the hassles of living in an 'unsupported' country that I haven't got any easy access to peripherals for game consoles. Even before SFIV came out, arcade sticks for any console here in the Philippines is extremely rare, and even if they do come…
