Of course, with any match-up there are plenty of details and nuances that can be player specific, so post up in the comments if you feel I forgot anything. 

Do you have your own Match-up Breakdown you'd like to see on the front page of iPlayWinner? Copy and paste this template and send all entries over to admin@iplaywinner.com

TOP 10 WAYS TO TAKE INITIATIVE IN YOUR SCENE

As I've become more involved with planning and running events I've seen a lot making things happen in the scene comes down to taking initiative. Spending a moment before you go to an event and thinking to yourself "How can I make this better?" can go much further than you may realize. Below are a few steps that you can take as a player -- not as an event organizer -- to ensure things go smoothly and everyone is having fun.

1. Bring an Extra Joystick

This may sound brain-dead obvious but this is one of the best things you can do as a player. Bringing an extra stick to an event can mean the difference between having an extra set up for people to play on opposed to people standing around for an extra 5 minutes waiting their turn. Of course, this can be a tall order at larger events with so many players and that fact that you do not want to lose your gear. Always label your joysticks and try your best to keep a close eye on them. 

2. Bring an Extra Monitor or CRT

Not everyone has an extra monitor or TV to bring to an event, but much like bringing an extra joystick, this can play a key part in having that one extra set up that will make the tournament run smoother or have another station just for casuals. Again, just like joysticks, be sure to use masking tape and label the equipment with a sharpie so it doesn't get lost in the mix.

PC piracy is a daunting issue facing developers.Capcom's Yoshinori Ono, producer behind the Street Fighter 4 series, has said in a 4gamer interview that there are currentl no plans for a PC version of Super Street Fighter 4, and the reason is piracy.

Ono said that the PC version of the original Street Fighter 4 had strong sales worldwide, but it was also "number one in piracy."

He found one bright side in saying that at least the game got out there to more people.  However, they have to protect the Street Fighter 4 IP.  They cannot make it so that the game is considered "free" to some.
