Are you a huge Street Fighter fan or just a fan of all things collectible? This exclusive faceplate for your PlayStation 4, signed especially by Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono, should take your fancy.
These exclusive PlayStation 4 faceplates are pretty interesting because one, these are signed by huge Capcom guy Yoshinori Ono. Ono has been with Capcom since Street Fighter Alpha 3, which then released in arcades. He stayed with the company, producing Street Fighter after Street Fighter, and other Capcom titles such as Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, and Heavy Metal to name a few.
Another reason why you should be getting gaga over this exclusive PS4 nameplates is because the faceplates will be featuring the art of the super awesome Ryu. Ryu is one of the most popular and favorite lead characters of the Street Fighter franchise and has been with us since 1987. He has already been voiced by various actors throughout various Street Fighter and character adaptations.

Interested yet? If you want to get your hands on these faceplates, you can do so while helping others, too. Actually, Capcom has donated a couple of these signed PlayStation 4 faceplates to The Games Art and Music or GAAM show kicking off tomorrow in Jacksonville, Florida. The donated faceplates will be auctioned off to raise money for charity organizations such as WithLove, Extra Life, First Coast No More Homeless Pets, and APOPO.
One of these exclusive Street Fighter nameplates signed by Ono is listed currently on eBay. These faceplates are usually only given out to tournament winners at select events so they are pretty rare and precious to boot. Auction for the Ono-signed PS4 faceplates ends on August 17.
