I wasn’t quite sure which section to bring this thread to since it has to do with Street Fighter as well as tech, so I just brought it here.
Something I’ve been wanting to discuss with people is the issue regarding PS3 fightsticks not being compatible with the SFV beta. When the game officially releases, PS3 fightsticks may or may not be compatible with the game, so everyone is still waiting for more info on that. The thing is, I might be getting a PS4 in the next few days, and I would pre-order SFV for beta access. However, I don’t have a fightstick for a PS4, nor do I see myself being able to buy one for a very long time. So if I obtained beta access for PS4, I would have to use a regular controller, and if PS3 fightsticks aren’t compatible for the final release, I’d be screwed. However, I do have a PC that can handle gaming very well, so if I bought SFV on the PC instead I’d be able to use my current fightstick for it since it’s compatible with PS3/PC/Xbox 360. I’d like everyone to discuss what someone like me should do in this situation, and whether it would be better to play SFV on the PS4 or PC.
Ah, another thing to note is the community on each platform. PS4 will undoubtedly have many more players than on PC, but perhaps that won’t matter too much since cross-play is now a thing for this franchise. I’m just wondering how different the PC experience would be vs the PS4 experience.
And I also just realized if I ever go to a local or tournament, I’d need a PS4 compatible fightstick. Fml.
