A Street Fighter 4 update (now official for consoles and PC)

Looks like my most anticipated game is now official for consoles with Street Fighter 4 coming to the 360, PS3, and the PC. The press release from various sites mentions a late 2008 release, which I'm not sure it will happen, but I won't mind since the arcade version is still slated for the summer at Japan (no word on U.S. arcades yet, but likely not - maybe Super Arcade will buy a cabinet even though it is expensive like Tekken 6). With this official announcement, I'm curious if the console versions are at Capcom's press event, CAPTIVATE, to be previewed and whether or not it will make an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con and Evo 2K8, the grand daddy of fighting game tournaments. Capcom still has more characters and stages to reveal (Akuma is surprisingly not revealed yet), so there is still time for them to make us happy or piss off the hardcore fanbase (even some tournament players with move frames).

If it is out this fall, I rather buy SF4 than Gears 2.
