SSFIV HDTV is branding taken to the next level

I think we can all agree that, with the advent of the SFIV snuggie, Capcom has gone a little out of control with the Street Fighter branding. And it hasn't ended, as with the advent of Super Street Fighter IV, Capcom has a new round of oddly branded products to come on the market. This time it's an HDTV (via Chip Chick).

Isn't it lovely? I mean, I'm being a little bit facetious, but it's really kinda funny/somewhat charming in an insane sort of way. If I had my Street Fighter snuggie, while playing SSFIV with my Mad Catz SSFIV Tournament Edition fightstick, I think I'd want to be playing it on a SSFIV-branded TV set. Apparently coming in 22″, 32″, 42″, and 55″ LCD HDTV and 40" and 46" LED HDTVs, Roundtable Concepts also offers Marvel branding, so if that tickles your, uh, nerdy-bone, go to town. Unfortunately, the site appears to be under maintenance, so pricing is currently unavailable. Oddly, the respective branding sits on the TV for eight seconds upon turning on, which is an astronomical wait if you ask me.

When questioned, the always friendly Seth Kilian had this to say: "Some may ask 'why?' but I think the real question is why there are still so many home electronics that *aren't* yet branded with Super Street Fighter IV.  Frankly, this amazing TV is just making the rest of my appliances just look dumb." Clearly someone at Capcom is a visionary. A visionary of appliances.
