Help Wanted: Super Street Fighter IV Footage Stolen From LA Event


Posted April 26, 2010 - By pklepek

Super Street Fighter IV Officially Revealed

Capcom wanted to kick off the launch of Super Street Fighter IV with a bang, so the publisher teamed up with the folks at i am 8-bit for a Fight Club event in Los Angeles on Friday night. Nearly 2,000 fans showed up, many of whom never even made it into the event because it was too packed. The festivities ended on a sour note, however, because of a last minute theft.

"Right before the event ended, at about 11:30pm,someone stole several pieces of production equipment from us," wrote i am 8-Bit founder Jon Gibson in an e-mail to fans. "We could care less about the equipment itself. It's the FOOTAGE THAT MATTERS. [...] Sadly, it is gone."

The full list of what was stolen:

  • Mac Book Pro
  • Two (2) Kodak zi8 HD cameras
  • Lots of SD cards

Gibson is currently looking for leads to track down the footage and offering an undisclosed cash reward for the material. To that end, i am 8-Bit folks aren't even interested in getting their equipment back or pressing charges, even if the footage is returned by the thief himself.

"We are prepared to offer a cash reward if that footage is returned to us," continued Gibson. "We don't care who stole it, we just want it back. We will NOT drag anyone through the mud; your identity will be kept secret. We can promise you that. We produce these kinds of events for the fans, and for the evidence of such a night to be ripped out from under us - well, it hurts. It really hurts."

If you have any information about the stolen footage, contact Gibson via e-mail directly.
