Rumor: Home version of Street Fighter 4 may be coming out this year Kotaku has a story up stating that a few insiders are claiming that Street Fighter 4 will be released on console machines and the PC by this holiday season.

They don't quote any sources on this information, which does make me a bit skeptical. Considering the game was just released in Japanese arcades on July 18th, this would be a pretty fast turnaround.

All the same, I'm sure there's a lot of incentive to get this title out to hit holiday shoppers. Here's a blurb from Kotaku.
In the next quarter of this financial year, Capcom has no plans to launch any major titles. According to insiders however, Capcom said in a conference call today that it did plan to launch Street Fighter IV on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in the third quarter of this financial year, which would make it a holiday release (this Thanksgiving in the US?). Nothing has been confirmed, but that would make sense as Resident Evil 5 launches in March 2009.

Capcom did provide its sales target for upcoming titles. Resident Evil 5 is expected to move 2.3 units, SFIV is expected to move 1.7 million, Bionic Commando 1.5 million units and Dead Rising Chop Till You Drop 0.5 million units.
