Hadouken! Over 250,000 Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remixes sold

Since Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix was first announced, it seemed like it would be an obvious hit. So it's no surprise that it actually is. 

Capcom has announced that SSFIITHD Remix, despite its obnoxiously long title, has sold over 250,000 "units" year to date. This number not only breaks 30 day sales records for a digital download, but sales also "shattered" day-one and week-one sales records. It appears the game is well on its way to become one of digital downloads biggest success stories on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade. 

The game is good, for sure. But even despite remixed music tracks and gameplay tweaks in the form of "rebalancing," one can imagine that most players might think it's just Street Fighter with a new coat of paint ... and it still sold 250,000 units. How does this bode for next year's Street Fighter IV release? Very well indeed.
