Ultra Street Fighter 4 on PS4 supports PS3 fight sticks

Shoryuken!

The PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 supports PS3 fight sticks, Sony has announced.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Gio Corsi, director of third-party production at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said it had included Lab Zero's drivers so Ultra Street Fighter 4 will support licensed PS3 fight sticks as well as PS4 fight sticks.

Last year, developer Lab Zero worked with Naughty Dog programmer John "Cowboy" Bellomy to create a custom driver that meant any stick that reads as a generic USB gamepad or joystick would work with the PS4 version of its fighting game Skullgirls Encore.

It means players who already own a PS3 fight stick won't have to fork out hundreds for a PS4 fight stick just to play with their controller of choice.

Meanwhile, Corsi said the PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4, which costs 19.99 and launches next week, runs at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second, as you'd expect.

The PS4 version includes all the downloadable content released so far. And it's eliminated the minor input lag in the controls of Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PS3.
