Updated: Capcom looking into developing Street Fighter 5 on PS4 and Xbox One, Ono says earlier report about pay to win not accurate

Updated: Capcom's Yoshinori Ono addressed Sports Nippon's report today and said that the "pay to win model is not accurate and isn't something we're planning for.

"Sorry for the confusion! We're still in early planning stages and will share more at a later date," added Ono.

Earlier: Although Capcom did not announce a new fighting game at E3 this year, according to Sponichi Annex, the online portal for the Sports Nippon Japanese newspaper, one of the fighting games maker's top executives did make a few comments regarding the next Street Fighter.

Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto said to media representatives in a group interview at E3 that the Osaka-based games maker has plans to develop a Street Fighter 5, and that it would not only fully utilize the unique features of online gaming, but also attempt to broaden the player base by making it more accessible for newcomers, Sponichi Annex reported.

"We'd like to steer away from making the next game such that skilled players will win, but unskilled players will lose almost instantaneously," Tsujimoto said.

Review: Can Ultra Street Fighter 4 maintain the status of most popular fighting game in the world?

After numerous Ono hints, dozens of location tests, over 30,000 character balance suggestions, and what felt like centuries of waiting, (in reality it was only about a year), Ultra Street Fighter 4 has finally been unleashed upon the masses.

This digital update adds five fresh fighters to the already massive Street Fighter 4 roster, six different stages to throw-down on, and a variety of new game mechanics/modes.

This is the fifth, and more likely than not, final iteration of Street Fighter 4; how does it stack up against previous versions? Can Ultra Street Fighter 4 maintain the status of most popular fighting game in the world, that which past versions have worked so hard to achieve?

Tiers launched for Ultra Street Fighter 4, old rankings for SSF4 AE v2012 archived

We've launched the new tier listings for Ultra Street Fighter 4 today, which means we've reset and archived the SSF4 AE v2012 rankings.

You can find the archived rankings down at the bottom of the USF4 tiers page, where they'll be preserved for eternity.

As USF4 was just released, you can expect the tiers to vary wildly over time. As such, look at this as a way to share knowledge early on, but not the absolute way these rankings will look in the days/weeks/months that follow.

Keep in mind trolling our tiers will result in a ban, and our system will detect and zap your account if you attempt to abuse your votes.

The tiers section updates once per hour with all of the latest data that has been submitted, so keep checking back to see how things are evolving.

As part of the tier launch, we've also rolled out new stats pages for USF4, and people with accounts on our site can now add Decapre, Elena, Hugo, Poison and Rolento into their profiles.

Updated: Ultra Street Fighter 4 digital upgrade live on PSN and XBL, new launch trailer; official iOS frame data app live on iTunes

Update 3: The Xbox 360 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 is now available for download as well. It's a 1.92 GB download.

Update 2: The 1.08 patch (29MB) that activates your USF4 Digital upgrade on PSN is now live. Start-up the game, and you should be prompted to download the patch -- if not, just quit the game and reboot, over and over.

Updated: Many reports have come in saying that the same error message continues to show up when attempting to launch USF4. It appears that we'll just have to wait until the PlayStation Network updates. Please feel free to let us know in the comments if you manage to get the update to load properly.

It's the moment you've all been waiting for: Ultra Street Fighter 4 is now available for download on the PlayStation Network in North America.

This is the digital upgrade for the game, so you will only be able to properly launch USF4 if you already own Super Street Fighter 4 or Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. The upgrade comes at a price tag of $14.99 USD and a 3.5GB file-size.

Move listings for each of the five newly added characters can be found below.

Decapre
Elena
Hugo
Poison
Rolento

Our tiers section, stats pages and profile character options will be updated tomorrow morning at around 9 a.m. PDT / 12 noon EDT to reflect the implementation of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Hit the jump for a brand new USF4 launch trailer and information on the official BradyGames app.

Updated: Mortal Kombat X features multiple variations of each character, new cast members, game modes & graphics engine

Updated: Ed Boon confirmed that MKX would have new characters, game modes, and an all new graphics engine in a recent statement.

Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilize the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet. The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine.

The official PlayStation YouTube channel uploaded the Mortal Kombat 10 announcement trailer today, but they included some previously unknown details in the clip's description.

Most notably that Mortal Kombat 10 will have multiple variations of each character, and that feature will change the strategy and fighting style of the combatants.

The last major detail is that the game features a "persistent online contest," where apparently every battle is logged as part of some ranking system.

Mortal Kombat X officially revealed, announcement trailer shown

Updated: Warner Bros. confirmed that Mortal Kombat X would be released on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2015, which backs up the Amazon UK listing we previously posted.

Ed Boon announced the 10th installment of Mortal Kombat today, saying the game is officially titled Mortal Kombat X.

NetherRealm Studios also released the announcement trailer for the game which shows Sub-Zero and Scorpion fighting, using x-ray attacks through part of the bout, and their environment to attack each other, then ending with one of the series' signature fatalities.

Here are a few high resolution images from the video.

Updated: Ed Boon all but confirms new Mortal Kombat is in the works, posts reworked logo

Updated: Ed Boon has updated his personal Twitter account with the same phrase, "Who's next?" shown in the poster, and also the new MK logo as well.

At this point, a new Mortal Kombat announcement is considered eminent on June 2nd, but the same cannot be said for Injustice: Gods Among Us 2. Earlier today, a poster surfaced over on the Xbox One sub-Reddit that shows a heavily battered spinal cord with the re-stylized Mortal Kombat dragon logo at the bottom. Hit the jump to check it out.
