TFG Exclusive Street Fighter 5 Beta Footage

TFG Webmaster here... like some lucky (and persistent) SF5 beta adopters, I was able to log onto the Street Fighter V beta on PS4 several times over the weekend. Of course I had "sharing" in mind, and I did record quite a bit of footage with my brand new equipment (offering 60fps/1080 quality)! I've already uploaded 5 Street Fighter V videos to TFG's Channel, and will release many more throughout the week! If you didn't get a chance to play, continue to be patient... SF5 is worth it!

SF5 PS4 Beta Test Delayed
