Glad to see that they're putting some effort into supporting the competitive scene, though I have my doubts over their ability to run these tournaments. Maybe they'll get most of the people who have been running the Evo tournaments to do it for them. I'm also curious about the games themselves, the only one of those four that is being played and is liked is AE 2012. I don't recall HD Remix or 3rd Strike Online ever featuring at a tournament recently (if at all ever) and everyone hates Jab X TimeOut.

No Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3?

Yeah it's not technically a Street Fighter game but unless Japanese players participate in AE 2012 then the most exciting game to watch at tournaments is UMvC3.

Capcom is smart too throw up that much money AND put out the DLC with balance patch for SFxT before this tourney. I think it's a really fun game that seems to have decent balance already but the majority of people had their expectations way to low before launch. The majority of middle to upper class players spent so much time shitting on everything outside of the game like business practices and interview comments, seems like they never gave it a chance.
