Street Fighter 4 coming to US arcades?

According to Kotaku, a capcom source told them that Street Fighter 4 will definitely hit the arcades in north America.

From Kotaku: "No word yet on exactly how widely distributed Capcom's latest Street Fighter will be to U.S. arcades, but a Capcom source told us yesterday it's definitely coming to the U.S.

A number of specialty arcades and stores, we were told, have already ordered the arcade machine from importers directly. Unfortunately, Capcom is still trying to find a distributor with the reach to get it into arcade. The big hang-up, it seems, is that nowadays most U.S. arcade distributors deal almost only with redemption ticket games."

Will Street Fighter 4 have the same impact on arcades SF2 had? Will SF4 revives the Arcade? i guess we will have to wait and see ;)
