The Street Fighter IV Collectors Edition In All Its Glory

Somewhere along the road, we've said - at least once - that Capcom knows how to take care of its fans. And guess what? We're gonna say it again: Capcom knows how to take care of its fans.

What you're looking at here is the freshly announced North American Collectors Edition of the upcoming Street Fighter IV, as revealed over at Kramez's Capcom blog. It's such a sweet package. Read that post; not only did Capcom clearly go out of their way to design kick-ass box art - taking plenty of feedback from fans as they went along - but they absolutely loaded that Collectors set with every conceivable item the most hardcore fighting aficionado could ever want. Think we're lying? Check out what's included; again, straight from the blog:

1. The game (duh)

2. A limited-edition (ie., not sold anywhere else) figurine Ryu in the PS3 box, C. Viper hotness in the 360 flavor. Decisions, decisions...

3. Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind: a 65 minute anime movie -- created by Studio 4C -- that sets up the story of SFIV by explaining events post-SFII. BluRay disc in the PS3 box! The Xbox version is a 360 game disc that outputs the movie at 720P, not a DVD.

4. A mini-strategy guide from Prima, written by the same people doing the full-on guide and illustrated by Udon Comics

5. CD soundtrack. Rock SFIV stage chunez in your car!

6. Plus some secret additional downloadable content that were not quite ready to reveal at this point. Look for more announcements soon!

See? We told you! You can grab all of this for the standard Collectors price of $79.99, and if you're a fan of this long-running franchise, you know you don't have a choice in the matter. This is the kind of package you can feel proud of; display it in your living room right next to your entertainment setup, and show it off. Oh come on, it's what every real gamer would do, right?

That blows for you Microsoft fans regarding the anime! What happend to the real-life Ryu Headband that was supposed to be in the bundle?

That's for preordering the game, not part of the bundle.

that is the most retarded thing I've heard in a while, and I've been on this site for some time now...

Both Consoles are receiving an HD anime that is playable on their consoles. Why is that bad?

If you wanted to laugh at xbox owners, laugh about how they're getting the shitty statue...

Lol, what the hell is the movie disc for the 360 if it's not a DVD and can still output 720p? Weird!

Btw Mr. Dutka, you should link the PS3 version and not the 360 version. The blue on the blu-ray cover is sexier anyway.

Im just confused at the fact that this is a PS site and yet you showed the pic for xbox instead of the pic for PS3 which shows the ryu figure, which IMO looks nice.

That litte difference makes so much for us Ben, Thanks. I'm going to pre-order ASAP. Right after I buy my Cradle of Filth ticket next week ;)

The blu-ray sold me more than the Headband or the Figurine. I love me some SF anime :)

Re-Pre-ordered the CE for ps3 on amazon a week ago. I want to know what that DLC is. 5 characters or 5 costumes? What? If it's characters the value of the CE would be higher if it was only for those who bought the CE and not some DLC anybody could download later on.
