Capcom has given details on what PS3 owners who pre-order Street Fighter III: Third Strike will receive and revealed that the game is the first PSN title to be available to pre-order.
"We are also very excited to be the lead title in the brand new PSN PLAY program. Now with PSN PLAY, you’re able to pre-order this game now. This is actually the first time a pre-order program has been offered for a downloadable PSN title, and we couldn’t be happier than to help lead that charge," said producer Derek Neal. "The pre-order period for the game runs through August 18th, and people who pre-order during this period will receive a special gift: a custom Third Strike theme for their PS3!"
You can see pictures of the theme in our Street Fighter III: Third Strike image gallery.
Anyone who purchases the game between now and September 20 will also receive a key that unlocks the hidden boss character Gill.
"This boss character is a ton of fun to play, and can be used in all of our casual game modes, such as Arcade and Player Match. (He is not available in Ranked matches or in Tournaments.)," said Neal.
PlayStation Plus members will also get 20 per cent off the price of the game. Street Fighter III: Third Strike is the first of four games included in the PSN Play promotion.
