DAMN just 140,000 in Japan

if it was not for the West almost all Japanese video game companies would go under!!!

Indeed it is.

Dreadful game.
homer (on 26 March 2011)
For some reason I thought these games were popular mainly in Japan. Boy was I wrong lol.
JAVH (on 24 March 2011)
The same gameplay like 20 years ago, so bored.

Street Fighter IV won fighting game of the year and placed 8th overall in [url=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=384655]neogaf's game of the year vote[/url].
MarshmallowMan (on 10 January 2010)
I like this game. However, I thought it was a step backwards in terms of 2 categories: music and story.
xykes (on 07 January 2010)
tekken 6 has also been selling nearly half price for most of it's release...
Mad55 (on 05 January 2010)
man tekken 6 gone catch this
xykes (on 27 December 2009)
Except it's been one of the top 8 most fighting played games in Japanese arcades, each month for a year and a half. And, it was the most hyped game at the Japanese 2009 SBO tournament this year. So, obviously Japan can't think it's THAT boring.
Gearbox (on 26 December 2009)
@ Egghead - what abberon said
Abberon (on 03 November 2009)
Because it was a boring game and only the Japanese noticed that
Egghead (on 15 October 2009)
Why did this sell so low in Japan?
TGM (on 28 September 2009)
New characters are being released for sf4 and one of them comes out tomorrow.

Bagaren85 (on 23 September 2009)
I feel shame that im late with a purchase. Im going to choose PS3-version over XO, for once. Controller and trophies is the reason. :P
Riot Of The Blood (on 22 September 2009)
Can't wait till a better version comes out with Shin Akuma in it.
Marz0 (on 21 August 2009)
I'm on this game 24/7, fav is Ryu and Guile. I seen some faster youtube videos of the faster version, looks real tight. Reminds me of Capcom vs Snk 2 turbo speed
VivaLaWiida (on 14 August 2009)
This has some very good legs.
sabby_e17 (on 07 August 2009)
I thought this game would have sold around 300k-400k in Japan.
TheConduit (on 05 August 2009)
Street fighter 4 turbo mega flash snap crackle pop hyper speed edition

So fast that if you dont have a 1000mbs internet connection you cant play online
skiptomylou41k (on 28 July 2009)
the japanese are probably expecting the inevitable super duper version of street fighter 4
Egghead (on 17 July 2009)
Man why did this game do so average in Japan?
TyePhoid_PAL (on 15 July 2009)
Love it.
TheConduit (on 08 July 2009)
WOW

I now that the sales so far dont compare to that of Street fighter 2 but for this day an age the total sales of street fighter are impressive.
Lavos (on 24 June 2009)
@Lincoln

Tell me about it... it gets boring when you only fight against shotokan players... i hate fireball junkies...
Time Lincoln (on 19 May 2009)
Whoever said I lost against the people I was talking about? I just think it makes for a boring match when someone hides in a corner spamming projectiles.
shinyuhadouken (on 18 May 2009)
you just suck lincoln
Time Lincoln (on 18 May 2009)
Great game, but some people online are sooo cheap. I hate it when people hide in the corners and spam projectiles

billion seller in a century
axumblade (on 14 April 2009)
1 million! w00t
NanakiXI (on 14 April 2009)
1 milion!!!
MontanaHatchet (on 14 April 2009)
Now it's at a million. Bada-bing, bada-boom.

Million Seller # 30
Carl2291 (on 09 April 2009)
Will be a million seller tonight :-)
playnext3 (on 05 April 2009)
million sellers in 2 weeks
snyperdud (on 03 April 2009)
should cross 1 million fairly soon.
Soul_tech10 (on 30 March 2009)
If it sells 55k for a week and 8 days it will sell 1 million defo!
DiplomaticImmunity (on 29 March 2009)
really good, i'll challenge anyone Ceaser92 is my psn
Dgc1808 (on 27 March 2009)
I like it... I really do... But I suck at this game :-(... still it's the first SF that I enjoyed.

But for me:

Tekken > SF
axumblade (on 27 March 2009)
Not too shabby. I give it about 2-3 weeks till the million mark. Hopefully it can stay up in sales for a while though. I'm still shocked this is ahead of the 360 version.
Egghead (on 26 March 2009)
RROD replaces consoles for free = |

Seriously just think for once, either way, Sony is neck-and-neck in EU, and given the PS nature of these franchises, people bought more on PS3.
karimkassis4life5000 (on 26 March 2009)
don't forget tomb raider and prince of Persia.
Avarice28 (on 25 March 2009)
Wow! I am starting to think that the install base difference is not that concerning when it comes to multiplats. RROD must make up the supposedly "8mill" difference and the two HD consoles are really about the same as far as "actual" working units are concerned. This could be why both SF4, Resident Evil 5, Devil may cry 4, and Unreal Tournament 3 all have higher sales on the ps3.
Carl2291 (on 23 March 2009)
Another million seller for the PS3 coming right up :-)
radha (on 23 March 2009)
this game is the worst wasted UD$6 (yes 6 not 60) in my life
Heavenly_King (on 22 March 2009)
hopefully will reach a 1M soon. If the game reaches 2M in total (ps3+360) Capcom will surely make SFV. I really want Bison to be dead this time!!!, and hopefully they will add SFIII characters in the sequel.
boxydancer (on 20 March 2009)
@Aj_habfan
That's what I was thinking. The Others #s posted here are consistent with the chart positions of SF4 on Chart Track (see: it slipped fast), so I doubt the Others #s are undertracked.
Aj_habfan (on 20 March 2009)
Remember that with Others we have weekly charts for each region from Chart-Track, so it much easier to determine the weekly amount. For NA there is no public information until NPD.
boxydancer (on 20 March 2009)
In any case this was undertracked by 220k and the 360 version was undertracked by 150k, putting this at 0.85 and the 360 version at 0.76 = 1.61 million. Considering that Capcom's goal for the quarter is 1.7 million, this is fantastic.

Soooo glad that this outsold SC4 for the same timeframe. Didn't think it would, but I'm glad it did.
boxydancer (on 19 March 2009)
It looks like these NA #s don't factor in sales of CEs and other bundles, so I'm going to have to believe that the "Others" #s may be undertracked as well. They may not be, though...depends on where VGC is getting the data from.
Dark Odin (on 19 March 2009)
cīmon... if in NA this is that undertracked... in Others must be also.

this already must be a million seller!
Megadude (on 19 March 2009)
Woo! since we now know that US sales are actually 400k that means this is the best selling version.
Aj_habfan (on 19 March 2009)
That means the game sold around 430k in just February - with a minor adjustment to March I wouldn't be surprised if this is a million seller already.
ethomaz (on 19 March 2009)
With adjustments another million for PS3 next week???
--OkeyDokey-- (on 19 March 2009)
I wonder if Others will need an adjustment too.
Georg_Prime (on 19 March 2009)
Euphoria14 : Yep, according to NPD, SFIV PS3 sold 403K in the US.
Euphoria14 (on 19 March 2009)
This game is about 900k now. :-D

Undertracked by 240k according to NPD.
Jexy (on 19 March 2009)
its a big name, but the game should have come out 2 years ago. mk/dc and soul calibur IV looked better than this and came out earlier, and with their own unique stuff. they should have stopped making 100 versions of SFII and this would have sold more
metalgearmatt (on 18 March 2009)
Isn't Street Fighter a bigger name than this? It should be well up in to millions by now..
Dark Odin (on 18 March 2009)
Iīd give a 9.6. itīs great, itīs beatiful, good online.
shinyuhadouken (on 18 March 2009)
1.17 mill together with xbox version
erodrig85 (on 18 March 2009)
anyways looks impressive n well i got two copies yesterday one 4 me n one for my cousin who likes fighting games this game i should have sold more on ps3 cause the controller in 360 d-pad is horrible cause my best friend got it for 360 n icant do the moves with that controller thank god he has the arcade set
erodrig85 (on 18 March 2009)
this game rocks but never will be tekken in my book tekken have right formula in the controls
Hiko (on 16 March 2009)
Good game in general. It's missing a few things that I would have loved to see as an old SF player.
8/10 in my book, could have been a little more polished.
Aj_habfan (on 15 March 2009)
Fighters are finally dieing. Good riddance.
Dgc1808 (on 14 March 2009)
Good sales. The series doesn't sell like how it used to.
boxydancer (on 12 March 2009)
SC4 is a piece of crap. I'm afraid that I can only say that this game is merely "decent," though. Doesn't do a good job of catering to gamers who aren't hardcore SF fans already.
Infinity (on 12 March 2009)
Soul Calibur IV and Virtua Fighter 5 are way better than this sad excuse for a game
boxydancer (on 12 March 2009)
I don't know why everyone expected such huge sales from this. SF hasn't been a multiplatinum seller since the early 90s. I won't lie, though, I was expecting a *little* more. Not much more, though---I knew this wouldn't outsell SC4.

As for Tekken 6, T6 will most assuredly outsell both this and SC4. Tekken has won the last 2 gens as far as traditional fighters are concerned, and it's far more popular in Japan and PAL than SF or SC. If a freaking PSP version of Tekken can sell 2 million (and we all know how bad attach rates for the PSP are), the console version (between both systems) should be able to hit at least 3 million.
Gearbox (on 12 March 2009)
its not a big fighter anymore, they tried to bring back old school style but honbestly i would have preferd to have got sc4 instead of this
hunter_alien (on 12 March 2009)
Hmmmm... I was expecting this to fly by SC4... I was wrong :| I wonder how well will Tekken 6 do, or all big fighters will stop under 3 million this gen :|
shinyuhadouken (on 11 March 2009)
both versions are selling shitty
SHMUPGurus (on 11 March 2009)
I doubt anyone said that. o_O
Cowboys4u86 (on 10 March 2009)
lol, did someone say teh analog was better than D-pad? Only an X-bot would say that because the 360's gamepads D-pad is a load of crap.
halil23 (on 08 March 2009)
Vega, bison's crap!
If there's a thread about it, I'll be the first to post about me pwning you ;P
btw shmups ftw
SHMUPGurus (on 08 March 2009)
Vega or Mr. Bison? I take Sagat and both of them go down!

Haha, I love where this is going. We definitely need an official "I fight you and I will Shoryuken you!" thread!
halil23 (on 08 March 2009)
I don't mean lag.

What I mean is the analog stick is big for the thumb to do circle that it takes longer to do than the d pad, like your example with Guile, it quicker to do < > on d pad than the analog.

BTW nobody mess around with me.
Ken/Akuma(Gouki)/Vega FTW
SHMUPGurus (on 08 March 2009)
Time? Controller lag? No way! You need hand skills, I've got them. Too bad multiconsole online matches don't work, or you'd have your ass handed to ya by my Cammy! xD

Seriously, it works great. What I have trouble with is Guile's Super/Ultra Combo. Other than that, all the moves pull off easily. I use a control stick though, and I was surprised, when I finally decided to try the D-pad, that it worked most of the time. Capcom did a good job optimizing the controller compared to SSFII: THDR.
SHMUPGurus (on 07 March 2009)
Xbots? I hope I don't enter in this category, because as far as I know, I was just stating obvious facts. None of the versions are superior or lacks anything... OK, maybe missing some backdrop textures and no anti-aliasing on the PS3, but as long as you don't take pictures of your own games and upload them on your computer so you can analyze every detail, it doesn't change a thing at all.

By the way, I bought the 360 version just because all my friends bought it on the 360. So I guess it wasn't a very hard choice. o_O
SHMUPGurus (on 06 March 2009)
Wow, wait, I had to wait for the game to load in order to play a match on my 360?

Mister PS3 worshiper, you should know that Capcom optimized, ON BOTH CONSOLES, the control sticks so the moves would be pulled off more easily. If you figured that much, you'll also find out that pulling moves with both controllers' D-pad are ALSO easier than on Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. The game is made easy for everyone to play, newcomers and tournament players.

Also, Xbox Live isn't 50$ a month (correct me if I'm wrong). Or wait... I think that if everyone can afford a PS3, it's because they have a job? So they can afford it too, right? I don't know, I've been told this many times already...! ;)
darthdevidem01 (on 03 March 2009)
either way wow

million seller this week probably!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 03 March 2009)
lol. Still equal after 2nd week in others.
SmokedHostage (on 03 March 2009)
The sales of this game on 360 and PS3 are now equal. :0
axumblade (on 03 March 2009)
wow. this and the 360 version are actually really close in sales. That's actually pretty cool. :)
SHMUPGurus (on 02 March 2009)
I have a feeling Infinity doesn't like getting his ass kicked online!

You know, Ken isn't the best character. ;)
Cowboys4u86 (on 02 March 2009)
This is Japan all over, great first week sales followed by mediocre to terrible weekly sales for the rest of it's life. I'm surprised it didn't hit 100k on the PS3 in week 1 for Japan, then again it probably would've if the 360 didn't have it as well.
Infinity (on 02 March 2009)
terrible game
Monteblanco (on 02 March 2009)
If the dramatic Japanese drop in sales becomes worldwide, this game might be in trouble. Markets are different but I expected more legs in Japan.
Fenristh (on 27 February 2009)
That often happens with mulitplats.
Dgc1808 (on 26 February 2009)
The US is keeping the 360 version ahead by a small margin.
cochise313 (on 26 February 2009)
so far this sold more than the 360 version
blazinhead89 (on 26 February 2009)
EPIC Euro Sales, Next up Tekken 6!
chanskie (on 26 February 2009)
ouch.....Ranked play....i played 10 games in a rows with 10 different players...each time i got smashed....shamed...:-(
snyperdud (on 24 February 2009)
Killzone,RE5,Flower,And this.

All in the next 3 to 4 weeks.
Steroid (on 24 February 2009)
Want it so bad but with KZ2 and RE5. Well Capcom will be getting my money regardless.
machoking (on 24 February 2009)
MK is better
Lil_D420 (on 24 February 2009)
this games awsome in-game music, the good graphcis & controls are solid i love the easy combosaswell as finishers... Ken FTW!!!
Joemazing (on 24 February 2009)
damn... however the HD games seem to be especially front loaded in Japan... so maybe better in the othe territories! although with RE5, KZ 2 for PS3, and a new game with the Halo name on 360, some of SF IV 's sales may be lost. i know several PS3 owners skipping SF merely because of this...
Monteblanco (on 23 February 2009)
@Joemazing -- It seems that second week was rather weak, about 20% of the opening. This is a great release for hardcore gamers but, perhaps, it will fail to reach a broader audience.
Joemazing (on 23 February 2009)
is the 84,000 in Japan (1st week) the amount that sold out? meaning, if more were available, would it have sold more? or did stores get more shipments after the day 1 sell out?
Egghead (on 22 February 2009)
Good start, and itll sell nicely as well over time given its name
Skeeuk (on 22 February 2009)
lol street fighter 4 gives you unlockable items to use in home.

akuma>>>bison>>>>>>>ryu
Blaiyan (on 21 February 2009)
Finally a game that allows in game music and not just custom soundtracks.
Serious_frusting (on 21 February 2009)
After playing the game a lil longer and learning how to use the characters properly :) I can safely say that theis t3h best street fighter yet and is an AAA title
Serious_frusting (on 21 February 2009)
the game isnt as fresh as i thought it was going to be, just the fact that since i have brought it i have been playing street fighter 2 turbo on my mame emulator.

Its strange the game is good but not sf2TURBO good, if you get my meaning, not an AAA fighter in my book i would give it a mid 8 or something.

I havnt even got to seth yet lol, thats probs why i dot enjoy it as much as sf 2. because it is too hard lol. and i cant do those super special combo's. :(
nextgreatchamp (on 20 February 2009)
I love this game, I only wish the music was better like the older ones, but its hella fun
KylieDog (on 20 February 2009)
The PAL collector's edition cover comes with either Ryu or Chun-Li.
KylieDog (on 20 February 2009)
Who removed the Chun Li PAL box art cover I uploaded?


That is the cover my copy has, I want it!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 20 February 2009)

TyePhoid_PAL (on 20 February 2009)
Awesome game. Tonnes to do. OOnly having rooms with 2 players is a joke tho, sort it Capcom
shizzlee (on 20 February 2009)
Pretty fun game. My brother bought this. He beat me pretty badly. I always did suck at Street Fighter :(

Maybe I should stick with Brawl XD
Joemazing (on 19 February 2009)
my appreciation for this game seems to grow the more i play it...and i loved it from the get-go!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 19 February 2009)
This game is like, ridiculously hard.
Serious question, is it even humanly possible to beat Seth? And people complained about fucking Jinpachi being cheap O_o
PullusPardus (on 19 February 2009)
i think this is going to pass half a million in day one.

Skeeuk (on 04 February 2009)

Pre-ordered :D
Cowboys4u86 (on 29 January 2009)
I wonder how much this will move in it's opening week...

Tbone (on 03 January 2009)
First day buy.
Blaiyan (on 10 October 2008)
Even though the character model art style is bugging me I still plan on getting it but before I pre-order I just want to know what the CE offers.
Dark Odin (on 01 July 2008)
