HD Remix sells over 250,000 units Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix has already broken two records for downloadable titles, and it looks like its well on its way to becoming the most profitable digitally distributed title ever. Here's a straight up copy and paste from Capcom-Unity.com.
It is with great pleasure to announce that Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix has sold over 250,000 units year to date. HD Remix has shattered both day one and week one sales records and will most likely break 30 day sales records as well. It's on its way to becoming the highest grossing digital title ever.

It would be idiotic and quite frankly, irresponsible to attribute the success of this game to just one person. That's like saying Boxer has better kicks than Chun-Li, it just ain't true. We'd like to thank everyone who poured their heart and soul to reviving one of gaming's most beloved franchises. From the producer, Rey Jimenez, to the folks from Backbone and Udon, to the product development, business development and marketing teams at Capcom, HD Remix was a labor of love for everyone involved.

Last but not least, I want to give a big shout out to the hard core Street Fighter community (yes you Shoryuken, Unity, and Key Stoners) who kept this game relevant for the past 15 years and spread the word to the entire gaming industry that Street Fighter is still the "best around"!
With this title doing so well, it makes one wonder if Capcom will seriously consider releasing it on other platforms besides the XBox 360 and PS3...
