Japan Getting Street Fighter IV Fighting Sticks

Illustration for article titled Japan Getting Street Fighter IV Fighting Sticks

Japanese peripheral maker Hori has released a pair of Street Fighter IV joysticks for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Note that there are differences.

The Xbox 360 SFIV is a straight-up 6-button fighting stick. The PS3 SFIV stick (pictured) has an eight button lay-out — along with rapid fire that enables 20 presses-per-second.

Both will be out February 12 with the Xbox SFIV stick priced at ¥7,980 (US$89) and the PS3 one at ¥9,800 (US$110). Rapid fire doesn't come cheap, buster.

"Who the hell uses rapid fire anyways?"

Rapid fire for a fighter is cheating. Just finished playing some SF2HD, and kept losing to a player with rapid fire. Its obvious when they have it and it gives them a huge unfair advantage for throws. Guess I'm the only old school schmuck who prefers jamming on buttons than being assisted by rapid fire.
