Super Street Fighter 4 kicks Games for Windows Live to the curb

With the Games for Windows Live service shutting its doors in August, Capcom has decided to jump ship with Super Street Fighter 4 in tow. Henceforth, the PC fighter will call Steam home.

The good news is that to celebrate the transition, Super Street Fighter 4 is now available from Steam at 75 percent off. Purchase the normally $30 game before June 1, and you'll only be charged $8. That's a solid bargain, especially for those hoping to improve the quality of their virtual fisticuffs before the upcoming debut of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

The bad news, however, is that in the shift from Games for Windows Live, some Super Street Fighter 4 owners may lose their DLC costumes. Capcom recently revealed that DLC issued to the retail, Games for Windows Live version of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition is tied to that game's physical disc and will not make the jump to Steam along with the rest of the game's components.
