Ono: New patch for Super Street Fighter 4 could add moves, other stuff AndriaSang.com translated an interview that Yoshinori Ono had with Famitsu magazine in Japan.

In the write up, Ono talks about the arcade release of Super Street Fighter 4 and what it could mean for the console version. It's a pretty interesting article, and definitely worth your time to check out.

Here's a copy and paste.
Moving onto the home version of the game, Famitsu asked the obvious question: will all those arcade adjustments make it into the home via an update? Replied Ono, "For me, the IV series ends with Super SFIV. We want both Super SFIVs to be played for a long time, so we'll listen to feedback after the arcade version is released to determine if players want the home version updated."

Famitsu also asked if any such updates for the home version would be free. Replied Ono, "If it's a tuning update similar to the June 15 update, I believe we'd be able to offer it for free. However, if it's the kind of update that adds new moves, it's possible that it could be paid."

Separately from the arcade version, Ono said that owners of the home version are asking for additional download content, including new costumes, new characters, and new functionality for the Replay Channel. He said that the staff would like to implement everything they possibly can, but the priority now is on the arcade version's development. Delaying the arcade version's release any further is something Ono said he definitely does not want to do.
Thanks to EX Ein and Franny87 for pointing this out.
