Commando 3 & Street Fighter IV Beta coming next week? [Update]

Published On May 22, 2008 | By Anthony Barker | News

If the latest Xbox LIVE mailshot titled, “The Crowd is Waiting For You”, is anything to go by, it looks like next week’s Xbox LIVE Arcade title will be Wolf of the Battlefield: Command 3.

Sneakily tucked away in the Xbox LIVE Team’s email newsletter you will find an ETA of 28th May… So we could be battling away to sound of co-op gunfire next Wednesday, although this has yet to be confirmed on its official homepage on xbox.com which still lists the Arcade title as “TBD”. Only time will tell.

For those of you who have not seen the trailer for this upcoming shooter you will be unaware that this game will also come with a beta code for Capcom’s High Definition version the classic Street Fighter 2. This has now been spun on its head with the mention of “Better still, buy it now and get a code for the Street Fighter IV beta test too!”

What is going on Capcom/Microsoft? Which version of Street Fighter will we be able to beta test exactly? We are sure we’ll hear more about this once Wolf of the Battlefield: Command 3 has a confirmed release date for the game, which could possibly be next week!

What would you rather play Street Fighter IV or Street Fighter 2 HD? Let us know by leaving a comment below, or discuss this topic in our forums.

[UPDATE] We’ve had a chat with Capcom and they have confirmed that the beta will be Street Fighter HD Remix, as stated in the trailer. We assume someone at the Xbox LIVE Team will get a wrist slapping real soon.
