Lead producer for SF4, Yoshinori Ono, was present at the Evolution grand finals to watch history be made. Along with the 23,000 (twenty three thousand!) viewers on the live stream and the estimated 4,000 (four thousand!) spectators at the Evolution hall.
Although there was not that many players in the hall the begin with, during the events that lead up to the finals and during the finals itself the hall was flooded with ever increasing cheers, energy, and viewers.
Just like the Marvel versus Capcom II finals; the Street Fighter IV finals went to the wire. Both players having been put into the losers and taking matches off each other, putting an extreme amount of pressure and hype on everyone involved.
It was great. Congratulations to everyone involved.
