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…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts

Microsoft:

- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
