    I know that Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting is supposed to come out tommorow, Wed. the 2nd, through the Xbox Live Marketplace. Does anyone know if there is a possibility that it will be released tonight after midnight or will I have to wait til tommorow morning to download it? I, for one, can't wait for this, especially if I can fight other people through Xbox Live.

    Who here is going to get it? Does anyone know the interface for the on-line play?? Is there a worldwide ranking system?

    I have no idea how it's going to work with Live, but I am considering getting it.

    I'll definitely buy it. I love the old school arcade games.

    OMG. SF2 is the first game I ever fell in love with. The very idea of network play makes me salivate. I hope Nintendo does a version of this for the Wii, because that's the next console I hope to buy.

    Seriously how does the Wii turn up in every thread about every other console?

    Oh well yeah it is a good game, I hope they release it for the console you end up buying... now back to trying to play it on the 360. The controller sucks for SFII!

    Ahhhh, we used to waste *so* much money on that game, waiting for that voice to say, "You win! Perfect!" :D

    Hehehehe, in fact, Street Fighter II has left the indelible trace of the alternate we made up in our lingo... "You lose! Perfect!" Hehehehehe.... :)

    Alas, I have no XBox, and will get no hyperfighting. :)

    Mmmmm, although all this old-schoolness...makes me want to get out my Saturn and play Radiant Silvergun. Darnit, I wish I'd gotten Marvel Superheroes vs. Street Fighter for Saturn... :( I have the big joystick and everything!

    It is pretty good so far. The controller is not the best for the game but it is Street Fighter, so I can't ask for much more. I can only hope they come out with marvel vs. Capcom on xbox live marketplace as well!

    haha, It is definitely worth it. I had it for dreamcast as well. That game was amazing. I am going to test the online play for Street Fighter II right now and I'll be sure to leave some impressions.

    Mmm, I have a dreamcast in a box somewhere too, although it's the Sat that has the big joystick....I've heard the Sat version of that game was pretty close to arcade perfect anyway?

    Yupyupyup! Been playing that loads on my PS1 again. Fantastic game. I think I had another one for the Xbox. All I remember it had something to do with the Metal Slug makers and was terrible.

    and yes. There are is no perfect SF controller. My favourite (though not perfect) was the GBA SP with it's snappy quick buttons. Just a shame about the lack of action buttons really.

    It's about godamn time. I've been waiting for this for a few months now. I'll get it when I go home. Excellent. Most excellent.

    As far as SFA3 or any others that were released on CD's, you probably won't see them for download since they're roughly 600 MB large. That's a lot to store for an arcade game.

    Alright. I have spent some time with the Network play of SFII. I must say, it is pretty fun...when it works. It timed out a lot of times before I could actually start a fight. I had this trouble multiple times through both a wired and a wireless connection in two different houses. It is fun though, although it reminded me just how cheap people who choose E. Honda are when I choose Ryu:mad:

    I find the 6 button genesis (mega drive) controller to be the best. Does the GBA controller really work?! I was suprised when I read about how they used that control scheme for the game.

    And I remember when Super Street Fighter 2 came out to the arcades, I thought my life was not worth living unless I had that arcade cabinet! I finally bought the genny version a couple months ago...wow the sound is terrible!

    Another thing that I noticed. The standard difficulty for the arcade mode is absolutlely amazingly hard. I keep getting my butt kicked and I consider myself pretty skilled in this game. Ryu is so cheap and fires off hadukens like it is his job. It is pretty cheap.

    I dunno, without MP3 music/voices the GBA version has all the characters, levels etc and fits on a mini GBA cart. I think the PSP version is not that big either.

    The GBA version is excellent, actually. You don't really miss the extra buttons.

    Risc - I mentioned the Wii because it will have download capacity and it's the next console I intend to buy. Sorry it irks you so much ;)
