Tekken 6 screens to start an argument: Will it be better than Street Fighter IV?

With Capcom's Street Fighter IV hitting stores tomorrow, Namco Bandai are scrambling to make some noise. The publisher has sent over 16 screenshots from their upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fighter, Tekken 6.
It seems that fans of fighting games are always divided into a few camps, with some defending Capcom's 2D fighters and others swearing by the 3D Tekken series of games. At last week's Street Fighter IV launch party in Los Angeles, someone tried to convince me that Tekken: Dark Resurrection on the PlayStation Network was the best fighting game available on consoles, including Street Fighter IV. There were free drinks to be had, so I didn't argue.
And I'm not going to argue the point now, either. Rather, I'd like to let you guys duke it out. Is Street Fighter IV more of the same 2D fighter formula with a new coat of paint? Has the Namco Bandai and its Tekken series always been light-years ahead of Capcom's fighters? Will Tekken 6 be the fighter of choice when it ships later this year?
Chances are, a lot of you haven't played either of the games. But hell, that hasn't stopped you before. So ... Tekken 6 or Street Fighter IV?
