Ultra Street Fighter IV patch now live on PS4

Input lag remains a problem, though

Ultra Street Fighter IV has experienced a turbulent launch on PlayStation 4, but Sony has issued a patch fixing many of the issues that players have been experiencing over the past week.

The update addresses the menu lag, amongst a number of other problems like Guile and Juri’s disappearing projectiles. That isn’t to say all the game’s troubles have been remedied, however.

Input lag remains an issue. So this figures to be the first of many patches.

A number of upcoming fighting game tournaments (such as EVO 2015) intended on using the PS4 port for their competitions, but the messy launch has thrown a spanner in the works. Last week, EVO co-founder Joey Cuellar announced the Xbox 360 version would now be used at the event.
