Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition's v2012 update is live, PSN DLC on sale

The v2012 update for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is live, bringing with it a wealth of changes intended to restore balance to the game's roster of fighters. The changes implemented in the free download have been a long time in the works, and come at the behest of the fan and tournament communities; the list of tweaks is pretty exhaustive, so you're probably best off downloading it yourself to browse by character.

To mark the occasion, Capcom is having a sale on downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 version of the game.The Arcade Edition and Arcade Challengers packs are down to $9.99 and $1.99 respectively, offering 30-50% off the regular download price. Costume packs are also down from $17.99 to $4.99; these prices are in effect until Jan 10 of next year. Capcom has said this will be the game's final update – but if anyone releases a fighting game with a more convoluted name than Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition v2012, expect a “Turbo” update or something, just to prove a point.
