Why are all these Streets Fighting and since when was there four of them?
Street Fighter IV(SF4) is the first numerical sequel of Capcom's iconic fighting game since 1997. If for some reason you've never played Fighting games before it's pretty simple. You and your opponent select a character and try to knock out the other using a variety of moves.

Of course I know that! Give me more details!
The design of the game is very similar to Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and is intended to allow gamers who played SF2 in the arcades or the consoles to jump right back in and use most of the same mechanics and controls with some additions from SF3. Of course theres also plenty of new stuff.

-Focus Attacks replace the parry system from Street Fighter 3. A player can hold down the medium punch and kick button, which allows the player to absorb one attack from the enemy. Once the buttons are released the attack is made with it's power being dependent on how long the buttons were held. Theres plenty of canceling shenanigans you can do with these attacks and are intended to be an important aspect of SF4's gameplay.

-Ultra Combos Super attacks and EX specials make a return along with new Ultra Combos. As your character gets beaten up during the fight their Ultra or Revenge meter builds up. Once it reaches a certain point your character can then use a high damaging over the top cinematic special attack.
Ultra Move Montage

-It's pretty! This isn't Street Fighter EX we're talking about. The graphics in this game are possibly the most stylish in any fighting game to date and it looks amazing in motion with impressive animations.

Wait, I can't play this game with a regular controller!(as in the 360 D-pad is TRASH)
Not to worry as several controllers have been made especially for the game.
Your options are:
The Fightpad($30USD)
Spoiler:
Based off the Sega Saturn controller it features a nice floatly D-Pad and a 6 face button set-up along with turbo options. Great for those who want to be good but don't want to break the bank either.

The Fight Stick($70 PS3,$80 360 USD)
Spoiler:
The standard fight stick featuring a eight button layout with start and back on the side. Has turbo options as well as a disabler so you don't accidentally hit the home button during a fight. Is easily customizable and a fine entry stick.

The Tournament Fight Stick($150USD)
Spoiler:
This super fancy one is literally all the parts straight from the original arcade cabinet at a hefty 6lbs. It has all the features from the standard plus extras including being able to screw it right to a table. Right now they're pretty much sold out everywhere until a new production is made so best of luck finding one.

All reviews so far have been very positive and they look to be great products. However at this time pretty much all of them are a pain in the butt to find.
Of course there's plenty of other options for sticks such as Hori sticks or customs.

Hows the online?
The online is very good even after the main release! However how good it is may of course vary depending on your connection.
PRO TIP: Playing arcade while accepting online matches is much more effective than searching for other players and you'll get plenty of challengers.

    This op is a very very very fine op.

    I've decided, after much debate, I'd rather have the MadCatz SF4 SE stick than the Hori EX2, if only for the extra two buttons. Not to mention that it's easier to mod.

    You could try ordering from japan, I hear their economy is tanking. I think it's pretty funny how our exploding economy actually ended up increasing the value of the dollar. This one guy that does work for our company in NZ says he basically got a 50% pay raise because he's paid in US dollars.

    So have the SE fight sticks been coming in?

    I know someone had a similar problem in a thread before this one so here goes.

    For some reason SF4 refuses to acknowledge the fact that I am speaking into my microphone whenever I play the game. I know it's not a problem with the mic or controller since I can send voice messages to people just fine. I tried googling the problem but my google-fu is weak and I didn't turn up anything useful.

    carrying this over from the old thread, but I think Seth would be an amazing character if he didn't have shit for hitpoints (and a strong breeze didn't stun him). He really does have a lot of great tools. I could see him destroying Zangief (dhalsims 2 best limb attacks + teleport + wall jump + fireballs?) as long zangief doesn't sneeze all his HP away :( His damage is also really bad. I've seen b&b combos hit for more damage than his ultra.

    Fei Long just seems like a worse abel with a better anti-air (flame kick thingy) IMO. Harder ultra to pull off, moreso when the 2nd/4th hit whiffs :| I'm still baffled why they gave him the old tiger knee motion for chicken wing... and I don't care what anyone says, the command throw is horrible. Even if you get it off, hp->fire legs isn't exactly easy to pull off imo.

    I'd say Sakura or Gouken are probably the best of the console exclusives. Cammy and Akuma don't seem to be horrible either. No idea where they'd place on a tier list though.

    Another mic question for the 360: in my preferences I have my voice settings set so that players talking comes out of both the TV speakers and my headset. I have the volume all the way up but people are still barely audible on the TV speakers. Anything I can do about this?

    I ask because my girlfriend likes to watch me play with you fine people but she usually can't understand you guys through the TV speakers.

    God I'm retarded, so apparently muting it doesn't affect your microphone when sending voice messages to people.

    Also, I just have to get this in here before the thread explodes. Stop worrying about the damn tiers and play what you love. You aren't going to get beat or gain a victory because your opponent's character is in a different tier than you. A much more likely event (say 1 in 10) is because the matchup happens to suck. Tiers mean a lot more with perfect execution and strategy... like those fuckers over at SRK and in Japan. Very few of the players here or online (including myself) are affected by this whole tier discussion.

    Being an srk member doesn't mean you're good. Neither does being Japanese.

    /non-Japanese srk member

    I agree though. Tiers are judged at the highest level of play. It only really matters later on because once the game plateaus, and everyone has reached the highest level of skill, character choice can mean win or defeat.

    So this was posted in the last thread:
    If I had to call it now from what I have seen of the console only guys ranking them on there own not vs the rest of the cast the ranks would prob go: Rose, Sakura, Cammy, Gouken, Dan, Gen(based on difficulty), Seth, Fei Long.

    That's pretty low for Fei. Fei has some great movementm a good AA (altho it could have some horizontal movement). His Ultra can be rough to land. Below Dan and Seth is kinda harsh. :( I love Fei, but after a rough night last night I started trying to get my Gouken and Akuma games up to par. I'm ashamed to admit my Akuma game isn't bad at all. Which leads me to believe I shouldn't pretend anymore and assimilate into a Ken/Ryu :( :( *

    Also, tiering is gonna be different for players of different skill levels.

    Like Akuma's got all the tools to hold people down if properly executed; he's a mid-high tier character in expert play on the lists I've seen (iirc). For mid-level players though, he's got no stamina--so he's kind of a bag, since he can't trade hits.

    Possibly, but as evidenced by Dhalsim's win in Japan, sometimes it doesn't mean jack then.

    Tiers really are just a general average of potential. Really though, you can win with anyone playing against someone of equal skill...well...except using El Fuerte, of course.

    No the dhalsim player was clearly better.

    If both players were equal in skill, though, the chances of the Sagat player winning would have been much higher, considering they both played a perfect game.

    Edit: Iduno that match up score but lets assume it's in Sagat's favor.
