I know that headline doesn't really make sense, but you have to create some kind of pun about when writing a news story, and that was the one I came up with. If you don't already own one of the 1,000 releases of Capcom's premiere fighting game then now is your chance.

Ultra Street Fighter IV introduced six new stages, and five new characters: Rolento, Elena, Hugo, Poison, and Decapre. The game launched digitally on June 3 (read our review), but has finally migrated to the retail space, so if you're the kind of gamer who likes to stare at the games they own on their shelf, then today is your lucky day!

Our Take
This isn't a big deal, but it is interesting to think about the fact that some games now release digitally before they come to retail; something that wouldn't have happened years ago.
