CES 2009: Street Fighter IV Mad Catz controller cracked open


7:47 PM on 01.09.2009



While visiting with Capcom today, we had the chance to play a little Street Fighter IV on the Xbox 360 with Mad Catz line of new controllers for the game that we showed you earlier today. Capcom's Seth Killian was nice enough to crack one open for us to see the crazy amount of work, detail, and craftsmanship that went into it.

Before we get to that, I have to say that I love the FightPad. D-pad whores that loved the Sega Saturn controller and its feel and configuration will love this controller. For the legions of fighting game players that hate the standard Xbox 360 controller's d-pad, this FightPad is your new jam. Aside from the sexy d-pad, the face buttons are flat and easy to hit, and the side buttons nice and clicky. This one is a winner.

The real highlight Tournament Edition Street Fighter IV FightStick. As Brad told us earlier today, this baby uses the same parts used in the actual Street Fighter IV Japanese cabinet. The buttons, stick, and everything in it are the best parts available. These things are beautiful, folks. The recessed and locking button features (to protect from crazy button mashing action) are just icing on the cake. 

Seth showed us the bottom of these units, which has removable rubber feet, revealing holes that would let you mount them to a surface. He says he actually has holes in his coffee table just for that purpose. 

I'm so doing that now.
