Hey guys, just thought you’d all like to hear this. I manage a gamestop store and just received this e-mail from my District Manager.
**Street Fighter 4 Tiered Tournament Program:Our tiered tournament program has been such a success that we are bringing it home to a title that was born for tournaments! Street Fighter 4 will be a perfect partner in our quest to bring the biggest tournaments to our players.
Approximately 160,000 customers will have a chance to compete in a nation-wide, ladder up tournament for a chance to win a Street Fighter Classic Arcade System!
2-21-09: Round 1 Tournaments in approximately 2500 Stores.
2-28-09: Round 2 Tournaments in approximately 270 stores.
3-14-09: Round 3 Tournaments in 16 stores.
Participating stores will be provided with tournament kits that will include all signage, brackets, rules and winner’s certificates. In addition, all participating stores will receive prizing. This tournament will be supported with in-store signage, call-outs on our website, and targeted emails. Although reservations in stores may seem low at this moment in time, we expect the reservations to increase substantially prior to launch.**
I did a search and nothing came up for this, so I figured I’d let everyone in on the big secret at gamestop. I, like the rest of you I’m sure, would really, really like to see a Shoryuken member win this tournament. After all, you are the best, right?
