I have been reading the SFIV forums on here for a while, even though I didn't own the game. I have been looking for a good fighting game on the 360 and you guys have convinced me that this game is worth playing. 
So today I traded in a whole lot of old games, something I was going to do anyway, and an old 360, and bought myself a used copy SFIV. I have played a little of bit of it and really enjoy it, and was hoping to get involved in your community inside of GB.
 
My question is though, I have 7 days where I could return SFIV for the 27 dollars I bought it for and put down a pre-order for Super. Is this something I should consider doing? Are most of you guys planning on making the switch? Is it really only going to be $40?

Super Street Fighter IV will make Street Fighter IV vanilla obsolete.  That's how fighting games work.  As to whether or not you should return SFIV, that's up to you.

 Everyone will be switching to super, it's like going from COD4 to MW2. 
 
As for returning SFIV that depends on whether money is an issue. If it isn't then just play SFIV until Super comes out.

Its up to you if you want to start fresh on  the new game or get the experience now. I would say keep the game for now since still a lot to be learned from SF4. You'll get use to the basics and learn a handful of characters. The online community is still very strong so there are plenty of people to play. Once Super comes out, you should be ready to hop in with the rest of us. It's mostly the same game and buying both isn't a waste. Also, see if you can find a stick for cheap so you can learn on that as you play the game.

Street Fighter IV players are assholes, get BlazBlue instead.

BlazBlue is for people who enjoy, deep, complex and rewarding fighting games. One of a kind.

Thanks all!
@EvilGreenDevil  I'll probably wait on the stick, don't want to drop extra money if I don't actually want to put in the time. 
 
@EvilTwin: @mubress: 
Yeah I'll probably just play until Super comes out and then trade in SFIV and maybe something else and get it, but that way I give it some time and see how it goes. I'll give it a couple days and see if I enjoy myself.

You don't think SF4 is deep, complex, and rewarding?

That was a joke.

Granted, I don't pay much attention to used pricing, but I'd reckon returning it now would net you way more. If money isn't an issue, SF4 has a ton of content to tide you over while improving your skills. It's definitely a case of newer is better.

Stick with SFIV till the day SSFIV.  Don't even think about trading in SFIV or I will hunt you down and make you re-buy it.

IF you take the time to learn a character somewhat by the time the game comes out at least you won't be jumping in with all these people who will wipe the floor with you.

#13 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

Yeah just stick with it, and then you won't be a scrub when super comes out. :P 
 
I'm down to play if you want. GT is AniMoney

Trade it in for Super. You can afford a break unless you are one of the crazies on these boards that has played the game for 500+ hours.

You're just jealous that you don't have a game you love as much as we do. 
  
I'm only at like 415 btw.
#18 Posted by Slax (894 posts) -
@JJOR64: Haha I played for a while more today and there is a good chance that I'll hold onto it until I get Super, so at least for now you can stop trying to find where I live. 
 
@AniMoney: Hey that would be awesome as long as you don't mind playing a uber scrub.
#19 Posted by Raven_Sword (3438 posts) -

You might as well jsut go to Super.

Haha, if that's what he's doing, I a more than willing to help out. I'll play you too if you want!

@Slax: Please beat his ass for me. He mains Rog, so pick Gief and spam lariat or something lame like that, he will love it! As for me, I am too tired. I am up for some games this weekend though if you around.

I could care less about my win percentage, I don't even use Rog online half the time.

My point exactly. If you COULDN'T CARE LESS then it would be a whole different story.

I was about to buy Street Fighter IV but heard the announcement of the SSIV so I'm waiting out for that. $40 bucks for a great game plus more? I'm actually sold.

Yes. If you "could care less" then that means that you do actually care and are capable of caring less. If you "couldn't care less" that means you do not care at all, and thus you're incapable of caring less because you don't care in the first place.

I couldn't care less about using this phrase correctly. 
 
Nah jk, thanks for the explanation.

@Stang: @Napalm: You may not play Blazblue... but god damnit will you respect it.
 
Sell it. I am. I will do the same with Blazblue.
 
Blazblue.

@AniMoney: I will add you soon. I could really use the help. Haven't really picked a main yet, just mostly testing the waters.
 
@Stang: Haha I was just joking about win %. It's no big.

#33 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

If you got the money then buy Super too when it comes out. My plan is to buy Super then get the thing that you get for having SFIV then trade it in... Or maybe I'll just keep old SFIV. I'll probably only get like £5 for it anyways.

#34 Posted by HotSauceMagik (264 posts) -

Keep 4 till SUPER comes out.  You've got just enough time to learn the game.  Also, there are only going to be some minor tweaks to the current roster so you'll have a 1 up on dudes just buying street fighter for the first time.
 
Though if you think you'll switch to a stick at some point, I wouldn't recommend learning it with a pad first.  It will be much harder to pick it up.

#35 Edited by Jambones (1696 posts) -

Wait for Super, in my opinion.
 
  It'll be thooper-de-dooper.

#36 Posted by misterpope (379 posts) -

Play SFIV first. Getting to know the game before Super comes out will make Super a lot more enjoyable.
#37 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I actually think I am passing on Super. Turning on SFIV even for five matches made me not even want to play it. It's probably better in the long run, it might as well be a fuckin' addiction.

Well, hand in your resignation tomorrow, we'll see you next Tuesday.
#39 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -
@lordofultima: SHADDUP.
 
Before I only got frustrated when I lost consistently, but now even though I won a few matches I was still disinterested in even playing.

However, I am craving a Wendy's #2, hold the pickles and mustard, omg.

You really have to stop saying shit like that, what is this, the 3rd or 4th time you have said you are done? We all know you will be on Live day 1 of Super's release.
#43 Posted by lordofultima (6204 posts) -
@Napalm: Everyone needs a break, maybe try cleansing your palate and branching out to other video games or just other hobbies. I'm sure you'll return as usual, though.
#44 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -
@Stang: I don't think so. I might come back around, though, as of right now, I really don't have much an urge to play. Before, I said I was done because of exterior problems that SFIV affected, but now I literally just don't have an urge to play, regardless of whether I win or lose. But like I said, I may come back around, around the time SSFIV is released. But right now, I'm not sweating it too much.
