I just recently got into fighting games and although im getting stomped pretty hard on SFV, I have my moments lol. Anyways, im looking to get a copy of SFIV to play on the side but I don't want to get one where I'll have a hard time finding a match online which brings me to my question, which version of SFIV on which console is the most populated? (wont have trouble finding a match). Help a rookie out please.

    Not sure about the console part, but USFIV is the latest (and final) edition to the SF4 series.

    Vanilla SFIV (the original release) has the most populated servers at the moment.

    for which console?

    I know that but does it still have a lot of players even though SFV is out?

    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"

    I'm certain it's active on both consoles. If not, then you could always ask your fellow SRK members on getting some games in instead (as long as you don't make a thread for it, like this one). Hit up the SFIV sub-forum.

    the version you want is the ssifv version on the nintendo 3ds of sfiv because it has the newer released characters juri and hakan on it

    Get Ultra Street Fighter 4. It's still pretty active on PS4/PS3/360/PC, so that wouldn't be an issue. The online community is intact, so you'll have no trouble finding games.

    im replying because i can and because im not at home. once i get home i focus on "getting gud" instead of wasting time answering jerkoffs who criticize instead of offering helpful advice like yourself.

    Vanilla SFIV is still pretty populated on 360/PS3 and you can get it for under $10. But keep in mind you'll be fighting endless amounts of Sagat scrubs at first... and probably later on as well. For twice the price you can pick up USFIV. Matches still come quickly and I'm pretty sure you'll get every alternate costume to date on-disc, except for the Halloween ones. Guess it depends on whether you want to go really cheap or dirt cheap to see if you like the game. There will be plenty of noobs on vanilla, but keep in mind that fighting them won't really make you become better player.

    Moving this to the SFIV section.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.
