Pretty solid list of games there. I’m really hoping that Capcom and Marvel get together and do something for Marvel Vs Capcom 2’s 20th Anniversary. Re-releasing the game on current systems would be great.

PS4 seems like a really damn good place to invest for fighting genre. Do have to praise the DS4 direction pad, its excellent for fighting games.

Also Granblue Fantasy? how? that game not even released yet.

@sakaixx: It really has nothing to do with the DS4. Pretty sure most of them use arcade sticks, guy who got third place at the Capcom Cup 2019 used a 360 controller (his name is Phenom, you can see him in the first couple seconds at another event with his wired 360 pad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5WNQ9Dkwzs) and at one Evo a guy used the original PlayStation controller (not even a DualShock 1).

Granblue comes out tomorrow in Japan, comes to US in March.

@mcnichoj: the Dualshock direction pad havent changed much from the first inception the original ps1 pad.

Since Evo came up. You also then have to mention DS4 is the most used controller at evo 19 and the top 8 many used the controller alongside the razer panthera. The Dpad is just honestly excellent at what it does, no shame in appreciating a good product.
