Marvel vs. Capcom 3 FightStick Release before Game

By Jamie Pert - Feb 2, 2011

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?

    These fight sticks are WAYYY too expensive considering the cost of the components. Not to mention the stick is twice as much as the actual game you'll be using it for! I have no problem using the standard xbox 360 or PS3 controller, but would like to have a fight stick for both my consoles and MAME. Problem is, they are so expensive, it really has turned me off on the idea all together. Maybe I'll find a used one at Gamestop, but until then…no dice.

      dont know about you, but seeing as this tournament edition fightstick has been the same since MvC2, buying it once would have worked since then through now.

      I dont like having red thumb for playing fighting games so, to me, it is a wise purchase.
