I am personally thinking that I may just pass or wait until it goes down or goes on sale for something like $20.  Sure, Capcom has been pretty good as far as their recent ventures but WTF is up with charging all that money for costumes and such and now $40 bucks for what is an add-on.

I didn't buy Street Fighter IV, so this is an okay price point for me.

new characters, costumes, moves, rebalanced shit, new cutscenes (as if i care). there's a reasonable amount of new stuff. i would love to pay less than forty dollars for super street fighter. but considering what expansion sets, dlc's and "special editions" usually cost, i say forty bucks is about right. honestly it's ten bucks less than i thought it was going to be from a ripoff artist like capcom.
 
actually the sticking point for me is whether they're going to have a decent tutorial system. i still don't really know how to use focus attacks the way i think i'm supposed to.

$40 is an entirely reasonable asking price.

It's not 60? The whole new CD bundle is not 60 dollars?

If you guys need me any time after April 27th, I'll be in my basement, playing SSFIV and eating Cheetos. 
 
Naaah, I'm just kidding.  Cheetos would get my fight stick all dirty!

Who would complain about a game being $40?!

#14 Posted by animateria (3335 posts) -

$40 is reasonable. 
 
10 characters is more than the original cast of the arcade version and it's also more additions than the console version of SFIV. Not to mention all the other tweaks Capcom is doing for the game.
 
I really hope they balanced the characters out better though, the new characters in the original console SFIV did not fare well against the arcade's fantastic 8.
 
Also, hoping for an Arcade version, I won't play it but a lot of the top US and Japan players are from the arcade crowd. I'm sure some of them would play the new characters much better if they had the opportunity.

I guess I am in a weird middle ground then.  I mean I like street fighter enough to get the first edition of IV and played it, but $100 plus whatever costumes and such for a game is kind of pushing it...for me that is I guess.

Did you buy games like Rock Band? Play WoW or any other MMO for longer than 5 months? If you answer yes to any of these questions then paying 40 bones for Street Fighter isn't such a bad idea.

Well it's what they've always done, the Supers and and Turbos and what have yous have been going on for a good long time, now. It's worked out for 'em, and people buy 'em. And 40 is reasonable, because you're getting all of SF4, plus new shit. It's not an add on if you don't own the game. It's pretty good value. And it's also not a huge rip-off if you DO own the game because they add quite a lot of shit.

I had to skip to the bottom... are we really complaining that the game is $40 ?  Honestly they could have charged $60, I would have been pissed but would have still paid it.

Totally getting it. Your logic makes no sense if you are a fan of fighting games. Its like oh, I Am a big fan of football games, but I think I will wait 1/2 a year to get madden this year since I know i will see it cheaper down the line; apply same logic to shooters, etc. Ripoff or not, Capcom is the only company that makes a good fighting game that appeals to the masses as well as the hardcore, they deserve all that money.

If 10 new characters, improved online, and a bunch of other little tweaks like 2 ultras per character don't justify $40 then I don't know what does for some people.

I would rather pay $20 for a heavy download, and I have little to no love for any of the new characters. The only thing I'd really be paying for is the new ultras, and maybe I'll like one or two of the characters. Still, that's not worth $40 to me.
 
If I hadn't already pay $60 for the first game, I would definitely pay $40 for this updated version

No. A few improvements to the people like you, who wouldn't have bought it regardless. Consider it natural selection.

$40 is a great price. Too bad it's $50 up here in Canada. :( But that's just par for the course, so we just hafta make the best of it.
 
My only irk is the fact that if you buy all of the costumes (that are already on the disc like in SFIV, I bet) you'll end up paying $60 for the game ($70 up here), in total, if not more.
 
Assuming each full character set is $10 (I think that's a rather generous guess.. it may be more like $15) and each character has two different costumes you can buy -- the original ones that were DLC for SFIV, and the new ones that'll be DLC for SSIFV, that's $20 in costumes. Paying 50% of the game's price, if not more (some people are calculating it to be 100% of the price if you buy all of the costume packs individually), just for some costumes is kind of ridiculous...
 
Obviously, we're welcome to pick and choose which packs we want, so few people will be spending that much, but it's still rather silly that it costs the same amount for some costumes as it does for the entire game. Also, to nitpick a little -- it'd be nice if they let you buy costumes for specific characters, even if it cost slightly more than "buying in bulk" (eg 100 points for one character, 320 for the pack of 4 or 5) ... For example, I'd buy Vega's if it didn't mean shelling out money for costumes of other characters I never use. *shrugs*

40$ is entirely fine. If you don't think so, you probably weren't going to pick it up regardless of the price it was in the first place. There's more than enough new in this game to warrant that price easily.

  im really confused here...now i thought this package was an entirely seperate game from SFIV...like if you never owned SFIV and you wanted this package, you could get it and all of its SFIVness for...$40. that seems like a fantastic deal to me, unless you already owned the game, which you probably did since you like street fighter so much. but if that's the case, $40 still seems like a very generous price to me
but if this package requires the original SFIV to play, then i would say $40 for an add-on is a terrible price. it's the same game, but with more features, not worth $40 plus whatever you paid for the original.

@RedEyesBlueBunny: ...Dude, you could have summed up your thoughts in 2, precise, sentences.  Anyways, you don't need the original SFIV to play SSFIV, just like you don't need Madden '09 to play Madden 10.

I would gladly pay full price for Super.  I believe that capcom has done an outstanding job with reviving the fighting game genre.  The $40.00 price tag will bring in more fighters.  As mentioned before I do have problems with a "unlock key" for additional costumes.  I don't mind paying for them but, if they use the SF4 distribution model with this version that will be ridiculously expensive.  I think they should lower the price for "unlock keys".
 
SUPA STREET FIGHTA FOAUR is coming!!!!!1
 
P.S. Redeyesbluebunny this is a standalone package not an expansion pack.

@RedEyesBlueBunny: Because some people think that the additions to SSFIV are not worth the $40 price tag and it should be priced & distributed ala The Shivering Isles expansion for Oblivion.
