Ultra Street Fighter 4 has received a major update on PS4 after its launch on Sony's console was so shoddy that Capcom decided to use the Xbox 360 version instead for its own tournament.
This 1.02 update makes numerous improvements. You'll no longer have to worry about disappearing projectiles, Decapre's teleport animation has been fixed, and the sound effects for the Red Focus Attack and Akuma's stomp have been sorted. There should also be less interface lag in the menus and the general word from the community on NeoGAF is that while not perfect, it's a massive improvement over how the game played before.
Here's a list of the full patch notes (via NeoGAF):
