AR­CADE STICK

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE -

With GuiltyGearXrd (p108) soon on shelves, StreetFighterV (p48) ex­clu­sive to PS4, Ul­traSFIV on the way too, and the DualShock 4 D-pad not quite up to the task, it’s time for a stick up­grade. Never one to miss an op­por­tu­nity, mar­ket leader Mad Catz has an­nounced a new ver­sion of its near-per­fect Tour­na­ment Edi­tion stick that’s com­pat­i­ble with both PS3 and PS4. Ex­pect the usual Sanwa Den­shi parts and rock-solid build qual­ity, but a new hinge-top de­sign gives screw­driver-free ac­cess to the in­ter­nals. And while it won’t be of much use to mere mor­tals, an op­tion to lock the Start/Op­tions but­tons will be well re­ceived on the tour­na­ment scene, where an ac­ci­den­tal pause means that you for­feit the round.
