Did you watch the MMA fights on CBS last night? If you didn’t, you missed out on some great action. Kimbo Slice kicked some ass, but he took a beating himself too. You also probably missed the very first Street Fighter IV commercial to air on TV too, since it aired after the fights. After the commercial aired, the StreetFighter.com website went live as well, so you can check that out now too. Here’s the video.
If you want to see the very first Street Fighter IV commercial, all you have to do is watch something just as awesome as the game; MMA Figting. If you tune into CBS on Saturday night and watch the EliteXC Saturday Night Fights Mixed Martial Arts event, you’ll be gifted with the opportunity to see the very first Street Fighter IV commercial right after the bout.
You’ll get to watch a 60 second trailer and 30 second television spots, which will end with a call to action leading the viewers to the StreetFighter.com website. Oooohhhh. Can’t wait. The show happens on CBS at 9 PM EST so set your reminders, and Tivos, and watches, and…
In a press release that was sent out by Capcom, it has been confirmed that the awesome looking game, Street Fighter IV will be coming to a console near you…unless you are a Nintendo Wii owner that is. Yup, sadly the Wii was not mentioned in the press release. They did mention the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC though, so everyone else is pretty much covered. No release date has been announced thus far, but keep an eye out for details.
Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter IV will be seeing an arcade release in the United States, but what type of distribution is unknown. Many specialty arcades and stores have already ordered the machines from importers, but Capcom is still searching for a distributor to put them in arcades. This is awesome. The only problem is that I can’t think of any arcades anywhere near me. Hopefully Dave & Busters will carry it.
