Lab Zero to the Rescue!- PS3 Fighting Sticks on PS4

Hey fighting fan, thanks for reading! Lab Zero’s got something that might interest you…

Lab Zero, the guys behind the kick-ass Skullgirls Encore 2D fighter, are teaming up with Naughty Dog’s John “Cowboy” Bellomy to solve a problem plaguing fighting game fans buying a next-gen console.


Fun fact: Skullgirls currently holds the Guinness World Record for most frames of animation per character in a video game.

Picture this; you’ve just finished a 2 hour practice session in Street Fighter IV and your console bursts into flames. With your fighting stick still intact, you decide this is a good time to upgrade to the PS4, which won’t overheat like your late PS3 did. You shell out for the console, pick up a copy of Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN, and plug in your fighting stick. But OH THE HUMANITY, your beloved stick doesn’t work on the PS4, only on the PS3! Now you’ll have to shell out even MORE hard-earned pesos for a new fighting stick, and your old one will be relegated to gathering dust in the garage for all eternity!

Unless, of course, two someones get together and make a PS3 stick driver for the PS4!

Lab Zero and Bellomy are these someones, and starting with the release of Skullgirls Encore on PS4, your old, battle-scarred fighting stick is going to make the jump to next-gen with you.

Oh, that never gets old.
