So Evo 2008 happened last weekend at Las Vegas (Inside the Tropicana Hotel and Casino). Other than the big tournaments like Justin Wong winning Marvel vs. Capcom 2, John Choi winning Super SFII Turbo and Capcom vs. SNK 2, the future for the genre had its presence there with Street Fighter IV, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, BlazBlue (the new Arc System Works fighter), and Super SFII Turbo HD Remix.
Here's a Rufus mirror match for SF4 featuring Capcom's very own Seth Killian against Nuki, a SF veteran throughout the years.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, on the other hand, is the next versus game that Capcom is doing which will not likely have a Stateside release pending on licenses. In this clip, it seems that Chun-Li is one of the best characters in the game so far (No surprise) and Alex (when close) can be very dangerous.
UPDATE - Looks like Street Fighter IV is already out at the arcade I play Tekken 6 at, which is Super Arcade at Walnut. I'm going to check it out tomorrow and hopefully it is not as crowded.
