European PS3 fans are still no closer to knowing when they'll be able to play stupendous downloadable fighting game Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix after both Capcom and Sony were today unable to offer any update on the game's release.

SSF2THDR, released across all territories on Xbox LIVE on November 26, is available to download on the US PlayStation store, but has so far mysteriously not appeared on the EU PlayStation store.

When asked for an update, Capcom told VideoGamer.com this afternoon: "There's nothing to say till we make an official announcement."

And Sony Computer Entertainment Europe was also unable to suggest a date. When asked if it had any idea when the game would be appearing on the European PlayStation store, a representative told us: "We don't get told about 3rd party releases until it's live."

While no explanation for the delay has been offered, it may have something to do with certification problems. Games sent to Sony Computer Entertainment for certification need to be granted approval from each territory individually, and SCEE is considered among the most strict when it comes to this process.

PS3 owners are clearly missing out. We gave the Xbox LIVE Arcade version a well deserved 9/10 in our review.

As always, we'll keep you posted on any developments.

I've just ordered a PSN Network Card from ebay to get around this Entropay barring malarkey. I've been looking forward to this game for ages and then they pull this crap. Im getting more and more disillusioned with Sony. I feel let down. theres no way Microsoft should have been able to get such a foothold in the market given Sonys dominance with PS1 and PS2.

Certification? As in age requirements? Damn it, I'm over 18, I don't care what the rating turns out to be, I'm eligible to play no matter what, so hurry up and get this game out now so I can give you my money and start playing the only game I've been looking forward to all year.

Great comment from monkeyo - did the same thing right now. You know, this is not only a problem in the UK, but the whole region. Thank you for the advice!

Details:
- Add a user on the PS3 somewhere in the states
- go to entropay.com and create a virtual Visa card (never heard of that before, but seems trustworthy
- transfer from your normal credit card to that new account
- write down the details of the new card
- update the information on the PSN US user
- transfer funds to the PSN account
- download the game
- play street fighter

Thanks again to monkeyo!

I'm a U.K. PS3 owner, and I bought Street Fighter HD from the American Playstation Store. Set up a new account with an American address (a fake one will do) and pay with an EntroPay account. It cost me about £10, which is probably less than it will be when it's released here!

I would encourage all U.K. PS3 owners to do the same to teach Sony a lesson!

I live in Japan and I have a Jap and Australian PSN membership and I still can't get it, even in JAPAN!! What the hell is going on? I bought a PS3 in anticipation of this and now I am wondering if I should just go and lay down 20 000 yen on an XBOX. My XBOX live name would be

"ICOULDNTGETSSF2HDRONPS3SOIHADTOBUYTHISL OUSYXBOX"

actually I think I might put that on a shirt
