Some gamers believe that you can’t play fighting games properly with your console’s standard controller, if you are one of these people we have some great news for you regarding a new FightStick which will be available ahead of the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 release.
5,000 Marvel vs. Capcom 3 FightSticks have been produced by Mad Catz, apparently if you head over to the GameShark store in a few days time you should be able to buy yours, going on previous FightStick prices it will cost roughly $150 and will arrive before MvC3 comes out in North America (February 15th).
Below we have embedded a photo of Mad Catz’s Marvel vs. Capcom 3 FightStick, the Xbox 360 version will probably feature and an integrated headset port, also both the PS3 and 360 versions will undoubtedly feature authentic Sanwa Denshi buttons and joystick.
One comment on JoyStiq suggests that the FightStick is identical to the Street Fighter 4 FightStick the only difference being being the artwork, you can see a photos of the SF4 FightStick here along with a product description and full list of features, perhaps the MvC3 stick will be very similar.
We will be keeping a close on GameShark to see when the fightstick becomes available, when we find out we will keep you posted. How much are you willing to spend on a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 FightStick?
