GameStop Conference Shows New Street Fighter Controllers


From the world of “holy crap that’s awesome” comes another series of MadCatz crafted fighting game products. Included this time around is a pricey Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 arcade stick, to retail for $160, a $10 increase from the original. Two new Street Fighter IV sticks are on their way as well.

A new series of fight pads are coming down the line, including Crimson Viper, Sagat (yay!), M. Bison, Cammy, Zangief, and Guile. Sadly, they are still corded. Come on MadCatz, get with the times and give us some special edition wireless pads, please?

These items have not been officially announced, but showcased on the Shoryuken forums from a Gamestop manager’s conference. Most of these seem to be due in late September.
