* The console releases of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' have somewhat of a complicated history. The first entry in the series, ''Street Fighter II: The World Warrior'', ended up being released exclusively on the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]], giving the console a much needed boost in sales during a period when it was struggling to keep up with the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis. But because of the intense demand for the game, the next entry was not bound to any exclusivity deal and ''Street Fighter II: Champion Edition'' ended up being released on the [[UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16 PC Engine]] and UsefulNotes/SharpX68000 ([[NoExportForYou in Japan]]), with a Genesis version announced alongside them. Nintendo, not wanting to be left behind, commissioned Capcom to develop the SNES-exclusive ''Street Fighter II Turbo'', a compilation that includes not only ''Champion Edition'', but ''Hyper Fighting'' (the third entry) as well. As a result, Sega demanded Capcom to implement a ''Hyper Fighting'' mode into their own version of the game and their port ended up being rebranded ''Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition'' to indicate the additional content (besides the different title, it has all the same content as ''Street Fighter II Turbo'' on the SNES with further additional features). The fourth entry, ''Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers'' ended up being released on both, the SNES and Genesis, at the same time and from the 32-bit era and onward, home releases of ''Street Fighter'' games were usually released on multiple consoles, aside from a few outliers (e.g. ''Super Turbo'' on [=3DO=], the ''EX'' series on [=PlayStation=] consoles, ''Double Impact'' on Dreamcast).

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' was initially exclusive to the Super NES when the original ''World Warrior'' release was ported to 16-bit consoles in 1992, although the PC Engine and the Genesis eventually got their ports of the subsequent release titled ''Champion Edition'' the following year. The Genesis version in particular was dubbed ''Special Champion Edition'', which was released a month after ''Street Fighter II Turbo'' on the SNES and featured roughly the same content.[[note]]Both versions allowed players to switch between ''Champion Edition'' and ''Hyper Fighting'' rules, but the Genesis version added a Group Battle mode and was the only 16-bit console port to reproduce the arcade game's original attract sequence featuring the two generic street fighters fighting in front of a crowd.[[/note]] ''Super Street Fighter II'' (the fourth edition) got a simultaneous release on SNES and Genesis in 1994.

* The 2004 RecycledTitle version of ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'' was originally released exclusively for the original Xbox due to director Tom Itagaki's preference for Microsoft's platform over the competing [=PS2=], with its sequel ''Ninja Gaiden II'' being released four years later on the succeeding Xbox 360. Both games eventually got ported to the [=PS3=] as ''Ninja Gaiden Σ'' and ''Ninja Gaiden Σ2'' respectively under a different director and with several changes made to get around Microsoft's exclusivity clause.
