Count me in as I am beginning to loose interest in SF4 volt I will pick this up only if it has online MP not Bluetooth

I have a feeling they'll just go the cheap easy way and do local. Although its been a lot of time since it originally came out, so hopefully they've been diligently working on online coding.

Update is out in US. and I knew it, local only. If it were to be online they would've built the game around that to begin with.

Also, the XBLA/PSN versions had local only, so network code for iOS only? Didn't think it was going to happen.

So, with this, the iOS version is on par with the home console ones (except the Story mode, which was Dreamcast-only).
For the Story mode: actually, is Namco totally bailing on this? It wasn't in the new ones, wasn't in the remakes... what happened?

Bluetooth-based multiplayer that's not even compatible with the 4th gen. iPod and only a $3 sale off of $15? Guess it's still not time to get it yet.

As someone who picked this up on release date, I'm beyond ecstatic that NamcoBandai stuck to their word and indeed had a proper launch sale, instead of lowering the price as soon as the sale was over... and it's also just as good to know that this sale = the launch sale. Very mother****ing respectable.

I guess this is their last update now that multiplayer is out and xbla version didn't have a story mode?

Hope not. I'm guessing "Gorgeous Retina display graphics!" is just misleading holdover text and doesn't mean 'for the iPad'. Also still holding out for iCade support before I purchase.

Pretty sure the retina meant for the iPhone or iPod. And icade seems unlikely. This is a major company after all, not an indie company with a handful of titles to focus on.

Pac-Man for iPad supports the iCade, so Namco's done it before.
