Virgin Gaming members can now earn actual money in Super Street Fighter 4 matches, thanks to a new agreement between Virgin and Street Fighter developer Capcom.

"Unlike before, when money would go straight into the arcade machine, Virgin's platform puts the money in the winning player's hands! Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players can participate in one-on-one matches with another player, or join a league of up to 32 other SSFIV players and compete for cash," stated Virgin's announcement.

Currently, those cash competitions are restricted to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 incarnations of Super Street Fighter 4, and there is no word on when or if the PC version of the game will be added to the Virgin Gaming roster. Full details on how to join Virgin Gaming and take part in the service's pay-to-play tournaments and one-off matches can be found on the Virgin Gaming website. [Image: Capcom]

Capcom's five-in-one "Essentials" bundle is now available at retailers, such as Amazon and Best Buy. The package includes five games for $60: Resident Evil 6, Super Street Fighter 4, Devil May Cry 4, Dead Rising 2 and a download code for Mega Man 10.

First announced in late July, both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the bundle come with a Capcom-branded drawstring bag, which is a good place to stash the achievements and trophies you print out after earning them in each game. We're not the only ones that do that, right?

We've all been there -- you just owned C. Viper with Ryu and you think to yourself, "Dang. I could really pick up some drunk chicks with these awesome moves." Capcom just answered that thought with, "Wanna bet?"

Capcom has partnered with Pasela, a karaoke-bar chain based in Japan, to open a Capcom-themed entertainment bar in Shinjuku, Tokyo, called Cap Bar. Cap Bar is scheduled to open in January on the first floor of Shinjuku's Pasela Resort and will have game-demo kiosks, merch, and Capcom-themed food and drink menus, as well as serving as the filming location for Capcom's webshow, Hagi Toko.

Personally, we can't wait to sip on a "Chun-Li Chugger" and watch the carnage unfold.

With the release of the Super Street Fighter 4 "Arcade Edition" DLC upgrade less than a month away -- the retail version will follow on June 28 -- there are some burning questions that must be answered. Capcom has heard the call and clarified several details in a new FAQ.

First and foremost, the full Arcade Edition update will comprise several downloads. Beginning on June 7, an an automatic update will be released to prepare your console or PC for the new content. Then, players choose between purchasing the Arcade add-on or installing the free "Update Kit." The Update Kit will allow vanilla SSF4 players to participate in matchmaking with Arcade Edition owners and will also allow them to spectate Arcade Edition matches. However, those using the Update Kit will not be able to play as or against any of the new characters, and all matches played will default to the original SSF4 character balance.

Additionally, Arcade Edition purchasers will have the option to play with the original character balance, though doing so will disable the new fighters. Head over to Capcom-Unity for more answers.

Good ol' video games came through for Capcom over the twelve months ending March 31, 2011. The company reported "a history-making milestone" of five million-seller titles in the period, with Monster Hunter Freedom 3 (4.6 million units shipped) leading the pack. Additionally, Dead Rising 2 (2.2M units), Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (2M units), Super Street Fighter IV (1.6M units) and Lost Planet 2 (1.5M units) racked up high shipment numbers, and each surpassed the million-mark in pure sales.

In all, net sales in Capcom's "Consumer Online Games" division increased 60.8 percent over the previous fiscal year to ¥70.3 billion (about $873 million). But the sales success of so-called "major titles" wasn't the only contributing factor in Capcom's record bottom line for a fiscal year, which showed a net income increase of 257.6 percent over the previous year to ¥7.75 billion -- roughly $96.3 million in profit!

Despite reported losses of ¥1.45 billion due to restructuring and another ¥105 million filed under "disaster" -- the Great East Japan Earthquake knocked out ten of Capcom's arcades -- all of the company's business units recorded operating income gains for the year. Notably, the "Mobile Contents" division enjoyed some highlights, with downloads of The Smurfs' Village Facebook game exceeding expectations "by far" and the Japan-only iPhone version of Ghost Trick faring "well."

Capcom tempered its jubilation, however, noting that the forecast for the current fiscal year (ending March 31, 2012) calls for "lower sales and earnings." The company anticipates "immeasurable economic losses" in Japan due to the earthquake and its aftermath, as well as a "downturn in consumer confidence" in the game industry at large -- not to mention Capcom's weaker offering of AAA titles this year. Dead Rising 2 ... again?

"We will focus more than ever before on our global operations as the environment surrounding the industry rapidly changes," Capcom said, observing that "the rise of social games [is] fueling the growth of new competitors in the industry."

In the wake of the recent resurgence of fighting games as a thing people outside of the EVO scene are actually excited about, many have wondered aloud when Soul Calibur would get to join in all the fighting game fun and frolicking that Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom and Mortal Kombat are currently hogging all to themselves, like giant fun and frolic hogs. Evidently, the answer is soon.

Odashima, Daishi - "Portrait of the Artist, with  Spreadsheet and Plastic Sword" - circa 2010 Though we've known for a while that a new Soul Calibur game of some fashion was currently being assembled at Namco Bandai Games, thanks in no small part to frequent and deeply excited tweets from project leader Daishi Odashima, one of which put an especially firm stamp on the notion, reading "SC is back!". 
However, the question of when we might learn anything about the title remained unanswered... until this week! Odashima recently stated rather flatly via Twitter that hopefully, he'd be able to start talking about the details project in earnest in mid-May.

That time frame would seem to be backed up by this Namco Bandai teaser site, which is currently counting down to May 11th for "The Beginning of a New Chapter" of something. After repeatedly checking my math, i can confirm that May 11th is, in fact, in mid-May, so this all seems to add up. Also, there is a giant sword on the teaser site. So there's that.

Go ahead and set your smart phone alerts for May 11th in rapt anticipation of a new Soul Calibur game announcement, and then we can all be super disappointed together when that countdown ends up revealing another Digimon game.

Although Capcom "has not made any announcements" regarding Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for consoles, others seem to be doing the talking for the publisher. A leaked trailer suggested that Arcade Edition would be available as downloadable content -- now mega-retailer Amazon lists a $40 disc as well. It shows a June 28 release date for North America.

A couple weeks back the British Board of Film Classification gave the title a June 24 release date for Europe. We expect Capcom to officially announce the title shortly.

Update: Capcom has confirmed the Arcade Edition will be available June 7 as DLC on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC for Super Street Fighter IV owners at $14.99 (1200 MSP). The retail version will be available on Xbox 360 and PS3 on June 24 and 28 in Europe and North America, respectively. The PC version will hit the streets in July.

The site ConsoleTECH has posted a trailer (presumably leaked from Capcom's Captivate event) for something that we probably all knew was coming anyway: Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition DLC for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of SSFIV.

According to the trailer, the new DLC adds not only the arcade-only Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni characters, but the changes in character balance made for the Japanese arcade release -- which contradicts a previous statement made by producer Yoshinori Ono.
