Coming in December
Mad Catz has one more surprise for 2014, a new fight stick for the PS4 & PS3. Set to release alongside 'Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN', the Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 is every bit the choice piece of fighting game kit. Beyond being PS4 and PS3 compatible, this TE2 stick is underpinned by Sanwa Denshi parts and boasts of a mess of features over the original TE FightStick design.
From Mad Catz,
Premium-Quality Components with Genuine Arcade Layout
A Vewlix-style layout with 8 action buttons offers a classic and ergonomic feel while providing full access to an arsenal of moves. Sanwa OBSF-30 action buttons respond with pinpoint accuracy and can withstand repeated use.
Authentic Japanese-Style Joystick and Buttons
The TE2 FightStick uses high-quality Sanwa joystick and buttons, the very same parts found in Japanese arcade cabinets. The Sanwa JLF is the standard in tournament-grade FightSticks.
The Tournament Edition 2 opens up for access to inner storage and components. Dedicated storage compartments give you space for your extra tools and parts.
Removable Bezel and Clear Top Panel
Using the included screwdriver tool – with interchangeable hex and flat heads – the easily removable bezel and clear top panel allow easy customization for artwork. With a unique design with holes that go around the action buttons, you can swap in custom artwork without having to remove buttons or fumble with confusing wires.
Lock/Unlock Button for Uninterrupted Gameplay
The lock button can disable use of Start/Options and Select/Share functionality, and prevents use of the PS button. No more accidental interruptions or automatic forfeitures in key moments during tournament matches!
The TE2 is equally great for arcade games that don’t involve life bars or intricate combos. A 3-way button enables the joystick to function as the left or right analog stick or D-Pad, opening gameplay for a wide variety of game genres.
The stick is up for pre-order now direct from Mad Catz and is priced at $199.99. The stick is due out in mid-December, so those interested should pre-order to be sure to get one from the first shipment.
