My friends and I have been racking our brains trying to decide which version of SFV to buy. I didn’t see anything on here about it so I thought it’d be nice to post a breakdown of pros/cons for each.
PS4 SFV Pros
 Will likely be the tournament standard
 More easily found used (eventually)
 US price drop on PS4 console confirmed
 Potential for Playstation Plus benefits (skins, colors, etc.)
 Easier to transport vs. a PC tower
 Can be traded or sold used
 While it will require Playstation Plus for online multiplayer, it comes with 60 free games a year and discounts on others
 Gameshare beneficial to TOs
PS4 SFV Cons
 Will likely require Playstation Plus membership to play online (http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5017/~/playstation®plus-membership-and-ps4™-online-play)
 Unconfirmed if PS3 sticks will work. If not, padhack/dual-mod, Brooks converter or a new stick is needed
[*] 1080 streaming/capture requires an external USB capture card
PC SFV Pros
 Potential for mods
 Potential to look better and load faster than on a PS4
 More easily found new for less than $60 (Green Man Gaming recently had it for $45 preorder)
 More portable than PS4 if built for that purpose (Laptop, Steam Machine)
 No monthly/annual fee for online multiplayer
 1080 streaming and game capture is easier (Overlays, multiple feeds, commentary, etc.)
 Potential for extra training tools (dummy actions)
 Family share and offline mode beneficial to TOs
PC SFV Cons
 A new gaming PC to play the game costs more than a PS4 (http://www.capcom-unity.com/haunts/blog/2015/09/22/street-fighter-v-pc-spec-recommendations)
 Since tournament standard will likely be PS4, 360/XB1 sticks that can be used on PC won’t be able to be used. Will require padhack/dual-mod, Brooks converter or a new PS4 stick.
 Capcom’s track record of PC support has been spotty (SFxT) However, SFV is NOT a port.
 Possibly region-locked
[*] More equipment for a TO to worry about if tournament’s games are on PS4
I personally have a gaming pc, but will need to upgrade the graphics card to meet the recommended settings. That puts me in a weird predicament because the cost of a new graphics card is about the same as a PS4. I already have a TE2 PS3/PS4 so I’m covered in that regard no matter which option.
Any other pros/cons I’m missing or anything that needs revising?
