I don't really want to support Capcom, but the salesman inside me thinks that this set would actually net me a profit if purchased and resold on eBay. However, I am not sure how much profit or if it will be limited enough to make it sale for a profit at all.

I'm not sure how many are being made as preorders have been up for more than a day and they are not sold out yet. I don't think it's going to be this big thing that everyone wants due to the price but I've ordered it, to add it to my collection.

Not for $150 but maybe for $90 or so.

Ooooh a light up Ryu statue for only $150? Pinch me!

If only it were a Guile statue that shouted "Sonic Boom!"

I am rather impressed by the content included in the set. I mean, for $150, you usually just get some digitial content with a cool looking physical container of some sort, artbook and soundtrack. But, this includes like 4 games, 11 disc soundtrack, a light up statue, a cool container, and an artbook.

and a karate belt and a statue and loads of movies...
great value.

i might buy it but i wont ever play those 11 soundtrack discs! SF music really isnt all that fun anymore.

That's a lot of content compared to most CEs.

I'm a die hard Mortal Kombat fan and a casual Street Fighter fan but this is a STEAL! All that music, animated episodes, movies, and several games! Not to mention the statue, belt, and other things. My only gripe is that I wish it included the original Street Fighter (I have it already on the Capcom Classics Collection) then it would be a complete collection.

Do any of the included games have other games as unlockables? (A la Ninja Gaiden for the xbox lets you unlock older Ninja Gaiden games).

Nope, but they are including all of the DLC (disc locked content, heh) for SFIV and SF x Tekken.

I'm considering it but $150 is a lot for a genre I'm not that into. Mainly I want the statue...

Edit: Just released this releases on September 18th which happens to be the same day Borderlands 2 will be delivered to us so too bad for you Capcom but I'm going with the new game that gives me oodles of content for $150 over your repackaged set for $150.

Benpachi says:
The statue and belt look pretty awesome, the box everything comes in looks really neat too. I have all of the games already, but I've been playing Street Fighter for twenty years, so I kind of feel obligated to buy this.

In reply to an earlier post on May 25, 2012, 6:18:46 AM PDT
When I have to choose between this and Borderlands 2 the choice is easy: Borderlands 2.

Borderlands be with us all.

lol, I have already preordered the Ultimate Loot Chest. ;)

Benpachi says:
Can't blame you there, the SF collection is basically just shelling out mega bucks for trinkets, most people have those games by now if they want them.

In reply to an earlier post on May 25, 2012, 6:26:06 AM PDT
Same here buddy, as soon as I saw that thing I had to pre-order it. I couldn't throw the money at my monitor fast enough lol.

@ Benpachi

The only game I own out of the set is Street Fighter II HD Remix so I'd be coming up on a number of games here. However I tend to suck at fighters which don't start with "Super Smash Bros." and also I don't really want to support Capcom's on disc DLC policy either.

Why on Earth are they dropping this the same day as another major release?

Benpachi says:
I don't know, Capcom makes some very questionable business decisions these days. Depending on how many copies they make, they could just be banking on the pre-orders selling out from the SF super fans out there. If I didn't have the Darksiders 2 CE pre-ordered too it would be a no brainer for me, but it's crazy to drop $250 on games in two weeks.

In reply to an earlier post on May 25, 2012, 6:43:32 AM PDT
Yea I'm not looking to spend $300 on this and Borderlands 2. Something like this would sell amazingly well if they released during the summer lag in game releases. Hell I'd probably jump on it at that point just to get all the goodies.

Chances are it'll sell just fine because of the fans but still that seems like an odd date to be releasing.

I love Street Fighter, but this set looks like garbage.

11 discs of Street Fighter music? Is there 11 discs worth of SF music. Turrible waste of money.
