Haunts works for Capcom for those wondering. Very reliable.

Still a functional upgrade, but feel free to pout about it.

So, my concern about this is that I have the standalone GFWL SSF4 AE client downloaded from Amazon games. Now, there's an upgrade path from AE to ultra according to them, and it's now confirmed that they're transitioning to Steam, what about us on the GFWL version? We will get Steam keys or, what?

edit:

I mean my $15 to upgrade to steam USF4?

Dropping one DRM for the DRM that was there anyway and will actually be around long term is a little bit of a plus.

Just a note for the OP, Haunts is preparing a fact sheet about the PC version, so probably lots more info "coming soon".

Or he can just post here himself :P

We never even got all the DLC on the PC version. Pretty sure that game has been abandoned on PC by Capcom.

I have been speculating on this for a while, and my guess has always been GFWL multiplayer will not be supported at all for the USFIV release.

There will be two separate registry apps for other versions of SFIV and USFIV, you will have to upgrade your previous GFWL version to get the new characters and multiplayer netcode.

When you upgrade, the original SFIV entry will be deleted from your library to be replaced by the Ultra version. Capcom will also remove older SFIV titles for sale on Steam.

I am not a fighting game fan, so I don't follow the scene as much as some of these other guys.

Second set of costumes and every costume for the DLC characters. Nothing substantial, but enough to show they're not going to bother with the game anymore.

They've pretty much abandoned it and PC gaming. It's a matter of publishers reworking their titles to not be GFWL titles to Steamworks.

Maybe that'll be addressed in the upcoming "PC deets" Haunts mentions. Try tweeting it to him and see if he responds.
