    Yup, Street Fighter Alpha 2, via PSONE Classics, is on PSN now. I know it pales now that SFIV is out, but it's still great for those with a PSP. I'd buy Alpha3 when it's available though.

    Oh my god how freaky is that, I was just wondering how long it would take for Alpha 2 to reach psn to join Alpha 1, which I've just bought off PSN a few days ago.

    I already have SFA2 for my Playstation 1 and SFA3 twice (PSP & PS1) but i'm gonna have to get SFA2 again just to have it readily available to play. How much is it going for?

    Alpha 2 gold was definitely my favorite of the alpha games. It was a great improvement from alpha 1, but didn't end up being as crazy as alpha 3 I thought. I still liked alpha 3 though.

    I don't think this one is Alpha 2 Gold...Is it? When they released that on PS1, It was such an improvement over the regular Alpha 2 release.

    alpha 2 dash/gold the one that came with the anniversary disc with all the iterations of sf2 was my favourite, after the dc version of 3.

    i still have most of these on ps1/2. i could never bring myself to play this on a psp, unless they released a joystick for the psp :D

    Capcom would have to pay me to take them, PS1 was made of fail for 2D fighter ports.

    SFA 2 & 3 was perfect on it, but I agree things like Marvel Super Heroes v Street Fighter & X-Men v Street Fighter did get a shite deal.

    Really? Never really noticed. Is it one of them hardcore fighting game things, the good players notice.

    I loved Alpha 3 a lot simply for the character list and the fact you could customize a character, really enjoyed that part. Will we see Alpha 3 on the PSN store if its already available on the PSP?

    The Dreamcast version of Alpha 3 is the way to go. It's got the modes from the PS version, but is pretty much perfect to the arcade in terms of graphics, animation and control.

    I went on the ps store to see if this was available (which it is), but ended up grabbing kof 99 off the ps store instead.

    I've still got my ps copy of Alpha 2 gold but not kof 99, so this was a no brainer to me.

    I've got to feel sorry for SNK dudes that have only got a PS3, thier getting PS1 ports while 360 has XBLA versions of Garou and KOF98UM incoming.
