Street Fighter IV to be released on PS3, Xbox 360, PC

Likely to be showcased by Capcom later this week

Street Fighter IV will grace PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this winter, Capcom announced Tuesday afternoon. Confirmation of the game's multiplatform release comes after French website Jeuxvideo reported the company was planning a simultaneous launch for later this year.

Along with confirming the game's release on consoles and PC, Capcom touted new characters and features for this fourth official instalment of the beloved series. Joining the entire cast of Street Fighter II are femme fatale Crimson Viper, lucha libre wrestler El Fuerte, and martial artist Abel. Other new additions are to be revealed at a later date. The company also teased new fighting mechanics, mentioning new focus attacks, super combos, and ultra combo systems. Expect specific details soon as Capcom will likely showcase the game at its upcoming press event later this week.

Although only half complete at the time, after playing the Japanese arcade version reviews editor Tae K. Kim boldly stated that it "definitely raised my hopes that Street Fighter IV can reinvigorate the franchise and put Capcom on the forefront of the fighting game genre."

Street Fighter IV is slated for a winter release, which could mean it hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC before year's end; however, don't be too surprised if it gets pushed to January or February much like Capcom's last winter release, Devil May Cry 4.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
