This is some great news, hopefully the A3 they include is the Upper version.


#2

Why the hell would you want them to port Upper, a game nobody plays, over the hopefully first arcade-perfect port of A3?

Given that shit like this iwll likely never get released on the next-gen consoles, this is actually the last bunch of SF games Capcom have to re-release, isn’t it? Could be the last fighting game release from Capcom in some time.


#3

They should put this shit on the xbox with live capabilities. Too bad its only for ps2.


#4

alpha 3 should’ve been on anniversary edition…but i’ll take this…i’ll hope for a xbox release to be announced soon…and maybe after they’re done whoring all of these old games they’ll make a new fighter…haha…yea right


#5

Holy shit! Alpha 2 Gold rerelease? Count me in!! :tup:


#6

Does that mean A3 official tournaments at EVO again? :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

^^^ Not if the A3 on the disk is upper. And even if it isn’t i doubt it.


#8

Maybe nobody plays SFZ3U because it was only released in arcades in Japan ?
As for an arcade perfect port, imo the DreamCast version is pretty much that.
And as im a completist, i would want to have the Upper version too :wink:


#9

cosign but if it’s only 4 ps2 i’m still obligated to get it and hopefully i’l at least to play it online on ps2.


#10

what a surprise i didnt see this game comming…
(Sarcasm)

rehash rehash repeat after me rehash.

lame.

yes capcom have sucked dried all their classics oh wait theirs still the Marvel vs collection…


#11

no online = who cares


#12

Most reports state nobody in Japan played it either.

Uh, no. It’s not even the closest.


#13

People like me who don’t play consoles online.


#14

I’m willing to bet $100 that these are all just the ps1 versions of each game.

#15

What was the problem with it?
And which one is closest then?


#16

Well the press release says differently at least:

The collection features direct arcade conversions of StreetFighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold and Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Oh well time to preorder i guess, as i doubt Capcom will produce that much of these.


#17

I have no doubt that an Xbox port will come out with XBL play also sometime afterwards. I mean they have done it before with every other Capcom fighter that landed on the PS2, why stop now?

As for the DC game, it wasn’t a perfect Arcade port…you’re kidding right? I hope that these are the arcade ports and not the PS1/DC stuff. Although they should also throw in the DC verison of Alpha 3 also.


#18

Capcom announces: more of the same crap that we KNOW you’ll buy!! Reserve yours today!

Please


#19

They said that Alpha 3 has 25 characters. That’s a clue as to what version of Alpha 3 will be on the disc. Which version of Alpha 3 had 25 playable characters total? Was it the arcade, PS1, or GBA/Double Upper? (serious question, I don’t remember)


#20

oh goody same games and new packages
