The PC version of stupendous fighting game Street Fighter IV will be released this summer, Capcom has confirmed to VideoGamer.com.

Christian Svensson, Capcom vice president, business development and strategic planning, said that he was in talks with peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz on the possibility of bundling its Street Fighter IV pads and fighting sticks with the game.

Street Fighter IV was released on Xbox 360 and PS3 last Friday to critical and commercial acclaim. We gave it a well deserved 9/10, and it's currently the number one selling game in the UK, as well as the fastest-selling traditional beat 'em up since the All Formats Chart began in 1997.

The game, however, was originally announced for the PC as well as Xbox 360 and PS3, and some PC gamers have expressed concern that they are being left out in the cold.

Asked when the PC version will be out, Svensson said: "Let's say summer."

He added: "We rolled out our Mad Catz sticks and pads, and the interesting thing to note about all of those sticks and pads is they all work with PC as well. We may, and I'm in talks with Mad Catz to figure out how can we actually do some bundles of pads and Street Fighter IV PC."

Svensson also said that the 360 and PS3 versions of SFIV is "exceeding forecasts" and is "on track to do some pretty amazing things".

"We are thrilled," he said. "We set the bar really high for ourselves numbers wise in our forecasts and we are exceeding forecasts in a very healthy way. We're really really pleased. It's great that Street Fighter IV is there to help reinvigorate the fighting space. It's been received far better than we could have imagined. The fans have been incredibly supportive.

"I don't want to make an outrageous statement that I can't back up. When we can back it up I'll make an outrageous statement. It's on track to do some pretty amazing things. I'll say that."

Tell you its always the same with PC titles, take GTA4 for example. When that was released late it was just a pile of unoptimised tosh, 2 patches later and it was playable.

I've been waiting to play SF4 on my PC since I heard it was coming out. What annoys me more than anything is that there was absloutely no mention of a delay until it just didnt show up on the day of its release.

Now Resident Evil 5 is meant to be coming out on PC along with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions on March 13th. Whats the going rate that it doesnt and gets delayed 4 months as well.........

"Let's say summer."

I'm getting tired of being kept in the dark as a PC gamer. This isn't the first game where we just have to twiddle our thumbs and guess if and when the games are being released ... and it probably won't be the last.

A game+stick bundle would be amazing, though!
