I prefer PC. I have to admit the lack of being able to communicate with other people unless you already have them in your friendlist on steam is pretty fucking annoying. There is no ingame messaging system on PC nor in-game voicechat. It makes it really hard to grow a community on PC. If you played against a dude and you want to play them again/add them as a friend and communicate it’s impossible. You can add their CFN but aside from that, no communicating possible on PC. On PS4 you can use the PS4 messaging system atleast, much easier.
1.Visually the game just looks better on PC than PS4. You can mutitask really easily on PC, even better with dual screens, i hav the game running on 1 window and i’ll do browse, watch videos, write document, program etc on the other screen. You also don’t have to pay for PSN+, have to buy specific devices as every device will work on PC, even if the game doesn’t support it natively you can use an inputwrapper like “x360ce”. You also have mods which are fun to experiment with. Downloading of updates is done in minutes on PC while on PS4 it will take forever(for me atleast, take sometime almost an hour for only like 7GB)
2.The flag you set doesn;t matter, it’s IP based, so the regions will be the same, hough you might fight other people as they might have set it to “PS4 players only”
Only thing i know about PS4 is that if you sent an inv to the CFN the PSN name attached to it will get the invite. Ingame messaging is non existent, however i’m not sure if it’s easier to figure out what PSN name is attached to the CFN. I’ll get back to you with that as i have the game on both PS4 and PC, although i hardly played it on PS4.
Is the VX-SA a PS3 stick? SFV supports legacy controllers, there is a setting on the PS4 version wher you switch it on and you have to use the DS4 controller first for authentication or something and then you can use your PS3 stick. If it is a 360 stick it won’t work(in this case you would need a converter).
The experienc i think is generally the same on both systems, as it should be because it’s crossplatform.
