Well I played with people in the usa and the latency was just fine, but people oversees it was laggy.

Ya the lag is noticeable. Also every other peron you play picks E Honda and tries to get you trabbed in the corner and do his 100 man chop which almost kills you. I just pick Bison and jump away and be cheap back.

I have heard reports of this game being so laggy because Microsoft only allows a certain amount of bandwidth with their Xbox Live Arcade games. This problem needs to be fixed right away, because Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting is more popular than expected!!!

Consider this comparison: The Sega Dreamcast used 56k low-bandwidth Internet speed, whereas the Xbox 360 uses high-bandwidth Internet speed. But, you could play a high-tech game like Marvel vs Capcom on the Dreamcast without experiencing lag, whereas, on the Xbox 360 you experience lag with a 15 year old game like Street Fighter 2...using a high-speed Internet connection!!! THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM!!!!!!

The reason is because Microsoft only allows us to use a small percentage of the potenial speed that our high speed cable modems allow. Microsoft needs to upgrade this NOW!

The people on my friends list are very diverse, and I've never seen so many of them playing the same game...until SF2 released. And lag is not an issue. Maybe you need better internet or you should hook up the 360 directly to the modem (not a router)

Im still playing just the demo :(

I don't know why people are complaining about lag. Out of the 30 or so ranked matches I've played I only noticed slight lag in 1 of the matches.

Thats good to hear deadpool cause ive had my mind set on buying it for awhile now.. And now since it's out all i hear is complaining.
