Street Fighter announcement incoming for PlayStation 4? Watch this bizarre Hadouken Cabs teaser

Posted by Catalyst
November 8, 2013 at 4:21 a.m. PST

Sony has put up a ridiculous and kind of awesome teaser for Hadouken Cabs. What this means exactly is up for debate. An email sent to VG247 this morning stated:

Don’t just call a cab! Call Hadouken Cabs! Hadouken Cabs. Knocking the competition out since 1987.

They also use the PS4 Twitter hashtag #4theplayers. Some of the Easter eggs shown in the video include a "PS1994" license plate on the taxi cab, a URL on the sign which points to this website, and the clip briefly shows the PS4 controller.

This teaser likely means that Sony has worked out some kind of deal for Street Fighter on the PlayStation 4, but that's only speculation at this point, as nothing has been officially confirmed, yet.

Hit the jump to check it out.

Video and details from VG247. Submitted by Jevali, Bleeble, O_Lint, Cylentkila, No_Surrender and multiple anonymous readers.

FFFFUUUUUUUUU-

This is very interesting. It seems as if Capcom/Sony wants to counter attack the newly revamped KI series for Xbox One.

Why is people taking this video seriously? this is not something published by Capcom or Sony. They just put the PS buttons and PS4 control in the video.

SFV PS4 exclusive? That'd hurt Xbone soooo hard

Cylentkila said on November 8, 2013 at 4:43 a.m.

Guys, If you listen closely to the "Talk to the operator" skit, you will hear the new announcer for USF4 during the fight between geif and ryu. Could that possibly mean that USF4 for PS4?????

#11

For some reason I really dig this idea even though it makes no sense, haha.

deus said on November 8, 2013 at 4:47 a.m.

who else is eagerly awaiting the PS4? or are most of the EH user's XBL peoples?! personally, i own both 360 n the PS3 but play fighting games more on the XBOX n use the PS3 for media entertainment purposes n sometimes play AE when i need a break from the XBL guys.

anyway, i'm really looking fwd to the PS4 more than the X1. if USF4 comes out on PS4 n then i'll probably get that that sooner n then get the X1 after xmas / new years after it's gone down in price. anyway, this commercial was semi hype : D

#13
PzychoNimz said on November 8, 2013 at 4:48 a.m.

I can't imagine it being anything but reveal that USF4 is for PS4, if this is even legit. Still, can't hurt to hope for SF5 for the next-gen announced already. :P

AngrySteve said on November 8, 2013 at 5:08 a.m.

No joke this is pretty freaking big. If Street Fighter is exclusive to Sony in any way that's a huge blow to the XBone. Before any of you Xbox fanboys chime in, yes this is a big deal. Street Fighter is the highest selling fighting game franchise next to Tekken and KI being a title with an extremely small cast for the time being isn't going to help Microsoft the way they think it will. Let's not also forget that Arc System seems to be siding with Sony in this war so you have Guilty Gear XrD retaining exclusivity to Sony and from what I understand, so is Blaz Blu.

O man that'll be a bitch I was all hyped for Xbox One for KI, now SF on PS4?

papertokyo said on November 8, 2013 at 5:29 a.m.

Capcom isn't that stupid. This'll Kill their sales if SF becomes exclusive...even a port for Usf4 without a port to Xbox One would damage them. Their already in bad shape $$ wise. This might just be a Free 2 play game, no hurt there.

figgycal said on November 8, 2013 at 5:41 a.m.

There was just an article on eventhubs last month about tweets from Yoshinoro. It's confirmed he's working on a "new" fighting game for an undecided platform. This might just be the teaser for USF4, but it might also be a sign of a Capcom exclusivity type deal going on with the PlayStaion 4 for future games? Possibly.

#29
figgycal said on November 8, 2013 at 5:42 a.m.

"Capcom isn't that stupid". Stop right there and reconsider.

papertokyo said on November 8, 2013 at 5:54 a.m.

@Figgycal LOL okay they have done some questionable thing in the past.If this is indeed USF4 then capcom will hurt themselves waaay more. But I still think this'll be free to play game.

Whose dumb enough to believe street fighter will be exclusive to any console? Ofcourse it be big but it wouldnt make sense for capcom to alienate half their fanbase.

#36
Daedae22 said on November 8, 2013 at 6:17 a.m.

If Ultra gets announced for Ps4 I will officially disregard everything Ono says from here on out. Was it not just a couple of weeks he said they didn't have the funds or any plans to make a next generation version?

This kind of sh!t would absolutely kill the community. Exclusive titles as well as a separated Live network are the bane of this industry

#39
Daedae22 said on November 8, 2013 at 6:27 a.m.

How would it damage them lol? For one it would help out people still on the fence like myself to decide once and for all on which console to buy. Hell some people who decided on Xbone might quickly change their mind. It's not like if they do an exclusive deal the Xbox crowd would never buy another Capcom game lol. The bigger percentage of fighters were on PS1 and PS2 during those generations so maybe were seeing a return to that line of thinking. Especially when you consider Capcom's supposed financial situation it would make sense to choose one next gen console as at least a time exclusive to test the water. No one is saying Double Helix will die because Ki is exclusive.

#40
beck said on November 8, 2013 at 6:29 a.m.

The fact that USF4 was delayed from this year to I think April 2014 points to a definite next gen port of USF4. Maybe they are concentrating on PS4 port first, so it would be exclusive for a few months before XB1 version (i.e. First on PS4 promotion).

Whilst I firmly believe USF4 is coming to next gen, this advert could be for something else. As someone else mentioned, maybe a free to play model SF game like Tekken Revolution. It seems Sony are helping developers alot more then Microsoft with this new model, which would explain Capcoms reason to go exclusive on PS4.

[edit] Ive just remembered that we have has an announcement of an announcement from Sony recently, they said they will reveal some new exclusive PS4 games the day before its launched, which is very soon... interesting.

#41
AngrySteve said on November 8, 2013 at 6:30 a.m.

I don't plan on getting an XBone but I am for sure getting a Ps4. If I can get Ultra on Ps4 then I'm set until Guilty Gear and any other new fighters come out. Sony, if you guys recall have worked with Capcom in the past with Street Fighter X Tekken to get Cole, Toro and Koro in the game. They also coughed up the cash to keep Megaman and Pacman exclusive. Sony has real deep pockets and if they see a victory with gaining exclusivity with Street Fighter and potentially Tekken X Street Fighter then I think that's money they will be happy to drop.

#42
DORMWORM said on November 8, 2013 at 6:32 a.m.

ok im going with PS4 now....

hold on .

did I just get hit with a level 3 focus attack from Playstation to stop me from getting KI and Xbox one?

im falling slowly

#43
SonicfanQ said on November 8, 2013 at 6:33 a.m.

Ehhh not really sure why people think this has anything to do with ULTRA street fighter 4. Why would capcom waste their time porting a 5+ year old game to next gen. Also even if they did port ultra street fighter 4 to ps4 tourny organizers would still use xbox 360 because its cheaper. The hardcore will still be playing the game on xbox 360. EVO next year is on Xbox 360! I want capcom to keep ULTRA on xbox 360/ps3 and focus on a new street fighter for next gen and thats what i hope this is. That one of the main reasons im keeping my xbox is for ULTRA.

#44
GeneralSpecific said on November 8, 2013 at 6:35 a.m.

You know what would smash it out of the park?

If it was a USF4 port and it had cross-play with the PS3.

#45
Y2J_br said on November 8, 2013 at 6:36 a.m.

if they change nothing, but give us a better netcode because ps4 has more bandwith to work etc, I would buy like a ton and decorate a christmas tree with then

#46
SteadiestShark said on November 8, 2013 at 6:36 a.m.

Welp, this would make my decision even easier than it already is.

#47
Daedae22 said on November 8, 2013 at 6:38 a.m.

And you can keep your Xbox for Ultra. It would also be fine if the FGC stayed current gen. But for those that are moving to Next Gen completely this would help facilitate that. Also some like myself only play SF4 on current gen keeping an old system for one title is pointless being able to cut ties to this gen and still get to play Sf4 on next gen would be awesome. I HIGHLY doubt this has anything to do with a new fighter. Its either Ultra or maybe an old port of some kind but I doubt that too.

#48
ChrisVega said on November 8, 2013 at 6:38 a.m.

Capcom needs money, street fighter would Be a great selling point for the PS4 but don't get it twisted Capcom has no room for error so if USF4 is ported it will be on both platforms

#49
caloge said on November 8, 2013 at 6:44 a.m.

I predict Wesker is the 5th USF4 character.

This might be an exclusive next gen port of USF4, which would trump KI3 pretty hard.

I would be super surprised if its SF5. Capcom has said that game is like 8 years out, and they cant reveal that while hype for USF4 is still building.

RedEther said on November 8, 2013 at 6:45 a.m.

Incoming PS4 Lag.

#51
SonicfanQ said on November 8, 2013 at 6:46 a.m.

If they port it to ps4 they better upgrade the graphics to next gen quality like I said street fighter is a 5+ year old game. Porting it to ps4 without updating the graphics would be silly. I HIGHLY doubt they are porting Ultra street fighter 4 to next gen.

I dont see SF becoming an exclusive franchise... I think it's just a teaser for USF4

s0lid_snake said on November 8, 2013 at 6:51 a.m.

If USF4 is exclusive to PS4 I can see the online community being much more populated. Anyone know if PS3 and PS4 games allow cross play online for the same game?

#55
SonicfanQ said on November 8, 2013 at 6:52 a.m.

What im afraid of is capcom bringing ultra to ps4 and it being the best version performance and netcode wise then i would be forced to buy a ps4 which im not trying to do anytime soon. I want ultra to stay on xbox 360/ps3.

brobo said on November 8, 2013 at 6:58 a.m.

If this is a teaser for Ultra SF4 on PS4 this is huge. As always eventhub readers lack comprehension skills, this isn't just a port this is a port to a new console with all its new features; live streaming, easy uploads, more connectivity etc et al. Its gonna be an early game change.

#60
ROSHINOBI said on November 8, 2013 at 7:08 a.m.

Stop thinking this is an ultra port its not...its Tekken X Street Fighter...I bet money and you heard it from me first Namco will have a rival cab company viral vid up next...this is what's next . Next gen has started ppl get ready for the new fighters usf4 is gonna be cool...but I'm ready for something new and fresh.

#61
SonicfanQ said on November 8, 2013 at 7:10 a.m.

Gosh man..... If this is true then evo in 2015 will be on ps4 and everyone will prob switch to that system making keeping my xbox 360 pointless.... Unless Ultra on ps4 runs slower or has other performance issues which i highly doubt it would.

#62
mcfizzle said on November 8, 2013 at 7:20 a.m.

A port to PS4 and XBone would make sense. Once those two systems release this month sales of USF4 will suffer for it.

Would be nice if they could add in some improvements to take advantage of the capabilities of the new systems like the video sharing streaming stuff.

#63
GreedyMcGurgleburg said on November 8, 2013 at 7:34 a.m.

This is the last time we will see anything about this ever again. It is nothing more than a commercial to make everyone go crazy. Get all hype for nothing!!!!!!

Six months from now everyone will still be asking what was that commercial? Who is the fifth character? When is the release date for Ultra?

king_e_dawg said on November 8, 2013 at 7:41 a.m.

Is anybody digging into that viral site yet? The links at the bottom lead to some sites for counters and legal info, which seem only semi-legit. Then there's the "PS1994" plate on the front of the cab (never mind that "cab" has a double meaning)... I was thinking Alpha was released in 94, but it was actually 95.

The only things Street Fighter-related that came out in 94 were Super Turbo and the movie OHMYGODVANDAMME.

ps4 changing name to psone to further stomp of xbones nuts

nah reasonable speculation to avoid disappoint would be USF4 on ps4

even more likely would be battle combination or sfxac coming to
platform with 5 dollar booster packs

crazy a$$ speculation? this trailer is so nineties it's as painful as... SFEX confirmed

Jinmaster said on November 8, 2013 at 8:10 a.m.

One idea I've had is for them to make another game like MvC / Msh combo but with way more games (cabs = cabinets). Add 3rd strike and a few other titles all in one, and let me see how many people are playing at each cab so I can join the one I want. Also put super turbo and A3 all in one download. Make it a true sf collection with instant access to multiplayer for all versions.

Wasn't 94 the year Alpha hit arcades? Also, if you listen to the operator on the linked website above, he gets into a fight with Zangeif. You can clearly hear the Street Fighter 4 announcer and soundtrack behind them fighting. Chances are this is just a teaser for Ultra on the next gen...

RunnersKnee said on November 8, 2013 at 8:17 a.m.

Aww man if SF goes exclusive this will be BIG!!!!! Sony must have paid good money to get it if it does happen. Either that or an entirely new fighting game IP exclusive for Playstation (hopes are up but not that high).
People got hyped when KI was announced but is an exclusive which is a bummer; funny how no one bats an eye like it's no big deal (I grew up with KI too and I was pissed) and then everyone flips out if the rumors do become true regarding SF becoming a PS4-exclusive.
First-party developer or not it was a dick move and Microsoft knows it, and it worked...
Gotta suck it up until actual news come.

Smorgasboard said on November 8, 2013 at 8:21 a.m.

I'm going to make the wild assumption that most people who owns an xbox360 also owns a ps3 but not the other way around. Prove me wrong guys.

Anyway, games sells consoles, not the other way around. Companies are not losing much by releasing their game exclusively on either consoles. Unless it's the WiiU.

#88
Daedae22 said on November 8, 2013 at 8:25 a.m.

If your getting the console anyway why not? Not to mention this would solidify the decision for some on which console to buy. Also makes getting rid of that old console easy if like me Sf4 is the only game that you play on current gen anymore.

#99
GodPride said on November 8, 2013 at 8:43 a.m.

Given the Dead Rising exclusivity and Capcom's financial state, a USF4 port seems more likely than SF5 but I can't imagine Sony putting down cash for a port of an old fighting game so it can also be SF5. But who knows? Either way I'm not all that interested
