Pretty up your Xbox 360 avatar with these new Super Street Fighter IV costumes

Shares

Good news for everyone eager to play dolly with their 360 avatars, there’s some new fake clothes for you to buy! At least they’re Street Fighter outfits, so when your dad sighs in disgust at you playing dress-up you can tell him you’re pretending to be the totally macho demon warrior Akuma.

The available avatar costumes include: Dee Jay, Ryu, Guile, Rufus, C. Viper, El Fuerte, Ibuki, Dudley, Juri, Akuma, T. Hawk, Chun-Li, Guy, Cody and Abel. Each costume retails for 320 MS points, or in real money, $4.00 US dollars. So ten of these outfits will run you the same cost as a copy of the game; let me suggest you use a little restraint and only buy like, 5 of these. Of all of the available outfits, a few really stand out, like Chun-Li’s, Juri's and Fuerte's:


Above: Classic, classy, identifiable

While those three are pretty good, there's a few really bland or unindetifiable ones in there too; I’m a hardcore Street Fighter fan, and even I had to turn my head sideways and squint to recognize some of these costumes:


Above: So a martial artist in Timberland boots, a disco trucker and a Puerto Rican b-boy walk into a bar...

The major problem with some of these avatars is that a lot of the characters are identified by their body type or some sort of head/face accessory, not just their clothes. Note that without his face paint, and 500 pound body, T.Hawk just looks like a sketchy guy trying to sell you weed at a truck stop. Ryu’s classic gi outfit isn’t too hard to recognize, but without the headband he just looks like any dude at a dojo. Also, last time I checked Ryu wasn’t a big fan of footwear, especially not 40 pound Timberland boots. Lastly, Dee Jay is a Jamaican dude with braids and a huge creepy grin, not a Latin guy on his way to Jazzercise.

Check out all of the official costumes right here.

    Uh...GR this article was also in the Ps3 section of your website. We really don't care about 360 avatars.

    they just look a bit wrong to me, especially dudley.

    So my avatar can't crossdress as Sakura? =P

    I think the Chun Li one actually comes with wider hips... The Rufus one actually looks gay now, with that huge sloping V cut down to the crotch. It's like the guy equivalent to that green J-Lo dress way back when. It would only work if your avatar was like 400 pounds of belly, a walrus mustache and a long blonde queue on his head.

    You'd think with all of the Flowchart Ken n00bs that still play and think they're all that, they'd be able to flaunt their (only in their own minds) awesomeness by dressing up as their favorite palette-swapped Ryu lookalike.

    No Balrog? thats unfair! MY XBOX MONEY!

    @ chrisat928 I don't think any of the characters, male or female, are allowed to be bare chested. The T Hawk and Dee Jay ones are wearing undershirts as well for no reason. The Home ones are definitely more accurate looking, but their static, dead eyed expressions creep me out!

    The Rufus outfit just looks horrible. Rufus requires bulk.

    Playstation Home did this much better with Street Fighter 4, including Blanka, Zangief and Cammy. Why is Juri's outfit censored? She doesn't wear a shirt under her boob cover.
  • GamesRadarMichaelGrimm - July 16, 2010 12:20 a.m.

    I'm really bummed you can't cross dress the outfits, bearded Juri ftw.
  • CH3BURASHKA - July 16, 2010 12:14 a.m.

    I hate how huge their hips are; it makes the Avatars looks gayer than they should look.
  • Psylockerules - July 16, 2010 12:03 a.m.

    no cammy? seriously this stuff is tripe, id much prefer they put R.mika and rolento in as DLC, oh and Karin and Elena and Alex and Twelve and...
  • keanerie - July 16, 2010 12:02 a.m.

    Village People?
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - July 15, 2010 11:55 p.m.

    Of course my dumbass favorite character can't be included. Blanka refuses to conform to your capitalistic societal norms!
  • ScruffMoney - July 15, 2010 11:52 p.m.

    cool?
  • batman5273 - July 15, 2010 11:43 p.m.

    I think if you tried to match skin color and hair styles this would be cool. I'm still waiting for a Batman costume for Akham Asylum.
