Comment Re:What are the people at Capcom thinking? (Score 1) 158

I wonder how much money Capcom expects to make off of this game. 2D fighters like King of Fighters tend to end up in the bargain bin pretty fast these days, and even 3D fighters aren't much shakes. If you don't have a bunch of like-minded friends to play with, a game like Dead or Alive 4 is only good for a weekend rental. I think gaming has moved on. I don't see Street Fighter IV having any interest for people who didn't grow up on 2D fighting games and still feel nostalgic.
From the article: "...renders characters and environments in stylized 3D, while the game plays in the classic Street Fighter 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes."
