Now on the video game front, fans of fighting games may have reason to salivate, that’s because During Capcom’s Super Street Fighter 4 panel at Comic-Con, a trailer was shown of their latest cross over fighting game: Street Fighter X Tekken for PS3 and Xbox 360. Evidently the game came together after the producer of Street Fighter 4 approached that the producer of Tekken after he heard that the producer of Tekken was a Street Fighter fan.
