Ultra Street Fighter 4 will support PS3 fight sticks

Like Mortal Kombat X before it, players will be able to use their PS3 fight sticks when the latest version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 hits the Playstation 4 this week. The news was confirmed by Director of Third Party Production; Gio Corsi, citing it was possible thanks to the work of Skullgirls developer Lab Zero.

Gio also wanted to point out a few other things that will be included in this final rendition of one of the best fighters of last gen in the latest Playstation Blog in which he pointed out:

  • Ultra SFIV on PS4 will be running at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second for all your fighting glory.
  • The PS4 version of USFIV will also include all DLC launched up to this point, including the most recent Vacation and Wild costume packs.
  • A few of you hardcore Street Fighters out there said that there was minor input lag in the controls of Ultra Street Fighter IV for PS3. Well, don’t worry: We’ve eliminated it to make the PS4 edition the ultimate version on any platform!
  • The price is $24.99.

It was yet to be mentioned how the licensed PS3 fight sticks would work at this time, however new information will be posted on the Capcom Unity or Lab Zero after the game’s launch this Tuesday according to Gio.
