Shacknews has recently posted some preview images of Streetfighter IV for the Xbox 360. You can't deny the images look pretty slick, however some of the screenshots lot better than others in my opinion.

Mmm, this curved Alienware 2880x900 monitor which was recently shown at CES is officially the first tech item I'm lusting after in 2008.
