Shoryuken.com Forums Hammered On Eve of SF4 Release

With all the excitement surrounding Street Fighter IV, http://www.shoryuken.com seems to be getting hammered.

I surely hope that the fighting game genre gets reinvigorated by this game. On the Philippine front, it would really help the cause if local arcades had Street Fighter IV available. That way, people without Xbox 360s or Playstation 3s would be able to enjoy this great game as well....and maybe it would encourage more players to take the plunge with today's current generation game consoles, too. Even players who have the home version would benefit from an arcade edition of Street Fighter IV, because it would let them challenge other players on a level playing field (no lag!)

Here's an idea for Capcom: they should add a team element of some kind to Street Fighter IV, where you can form groups of fighting game players, and every time a person on the team wins, the entire clan gets some new trophies or medals or access to other cool in-game things. I just thought that if they took out the stigma of 'going it alone' every time you play a fighting game, maybe they can encourage more players to give the genre a shot.
