Some recently released sales figures for Super Street Fighter IV’s first month show that the game is doing OK sales wise, pretty much as expected.  The grand total for its first month was 215 000 units across both platforms, 143 000 on the PS3 and 108 000 on the Xbox 360.  This is about 1/4 the first month sales of the original Street Fighter IV when it was released last year. The sheer amount of nostalgic hype surrounding Street Fighter IV was enough to sell the game even to some players who weren’t fighting game-oriented or who had never even played Street Fighter before. Now that the initial punch is out of the way, it’s only the hardcore fans who are interested in sticking around for the incremental changes or paying for the new releases.21_05 Image
