So are all characters unlocked from the start?

All playable SSFIV characters will be unlocked out of the box, including Yun & Yang, Oni, and Evil Ryu.

I don't want this, I'm holding off from getting Street Fighter 4 so I can get this, but if all characters are just there I won't feel like I'm achieving anything. I like the satisfaction unlocking characters gives me.

We had our fill of unlocking characters with SFIV. Just get that.

I'll be honest, this game isn't much of a single-player experience. If you're not going to be playing with friends, I'd hold off. Go buy MK9 or something, as it has a far larger single-player component.

I would get MK9 if it was for the PC.

I think I may just get SF4 and then get the DLC.

The only DLC for SFIV are costumes, and it only has 25 characters, as opposed to AE's 42.

I thought SSF4 added 2, and AE was adding 2.

SSFIV added 10, and AE is adding 4.

Oh, sorry. I can't count. There was rumored that there might have been more characters going into AE, but that never panned out. There's 39 characters total.

There won't be an SF4 upgrade to SSF4AE DLC for PC. Only a full retail game release.

That option is only available on consoles where you can upgrade SSF4 to SSF4AE.

You have achievements and challenges to tackle. Those are much more difficult, time consuming, and possibly rewarding than unlocking characters.

Almost everything I post is IMO. I'm not going to write it where applicable.

I don't feel like I'm achieving anything when I unlock characters; I just usually find it a pain in the ass to have to spend an hour getting the character I want to play. :/
