Hype news ya’ll, Ultra SFIV comes out today on PS4 for digital download at a shockingly low $24.99.

In addition to having ALL DLC costumes that have been released until this point, this version also fixes the input lag present in the PS3 version, and runs at a glorious 1080p resolution and 60fps. Last but not least, players can also use their PS3 sticks thanks to the Lab Zero driver.

Continue on for instructions on how to take advantage of the driver functionality.     

EDIT: We noticed that some users experiencing issues. Please continue on to see how Capcom is assisting Sony in addressing these issues and how the PS4 version will be integrated into the Capcom Pro Tour.  

Directions on how to use the Lab Zero PS3 stick driver for USFIV on PS4

For one player:

  • Power up the PS4.
  • Use a PS4 controller to sign into an account or the guest account.
  • Load up USFIV.
  • Once the game is loaded, plug the PS3 stick of your choice into the other USB slot and the stick should now function.
    • Please note that:
    • the PS4 controller will also control the character even though the PS3 stick is plugged in. 
    • the PS4 controller used to sign in must remain synched to the PS4. If it loses power or connectivity, the joystick will become deactivated.

 

For two players:

  • Power up the PS4.
  • Use a PS4 controller to sign into an account or the guest account.
  • Load up USFIV.
  • Once the game has loaded, player 1 should unplug the PS4 controller, yet ensure that it remains synched and plug in a PS3 stick of choice into one of the vacant USB slots. It should now function.
  • Player 1 should head to versus mode.
  • Once at the selection screen, Player 2 will then have to sign into another account or a guest account.
  • Once signed in, Player 2 should then press the “option” button to join versus mode.
  • Player 2 should now be able to move around the selection screen.
  • Once this is completed, player 2 should unplug in the PS4 controller, yet ensure that it remains synched and plug in a PS3 stick of choice into one of the vacant USB slots. The stick should now function.
    • Please note that:
    • the PS4 controllers will also control the characters even though the PS3 sticks are plugged in. 
    • the PS4 controllers used to sign in must remain synched to the PS4. If either loses power or connectivity, the corresponding joystick will become deactivated.

With USFIV now out for PS4 and SFV coming out next year, the PS4 is the only console you’ll need to fully experience Street Fighter moving forward. I know I have mine; do you have yours? If so, I’ll see you online sometime.

Let’s goooo! 

UPDATE:

Please note that these statements are from Capcom.

For those experiencing issues and wondering about a patch, we are aware that you are experiencing problems with the PS4 version of USFIV, which was published and developed by SCEA’s Third Party Production group. SCEA and Capcom are currently looking into the issues that some users may be experiencing and are working to resolve them as quickly as possible. We will continue to provide updates on our progress.

A lot of our more competitive players have wondered how the USFIV version of PS4 will affect them and the tour. To that we’d like to advise that the integrity of the Capcom Pro Tour is a top priority for us and we will continue to work with tournament organizers worldwide to ensure that the highest quality event will be run. Each region will maintain its current hardware standard for the remainder of the 2015 Capcom Pro Tour until otherwise announced. We will keep you updated as to when the PS4 version of USFIV will be integrated into the Pro Tour.   

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay tuned for future information.
