Capcom has said it is assessing the possibility of including support for PlayStation 3 arcade sticks in Street Fighter V, which is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Last week, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV would feature support for some fighting sticks thanks to the inclusion of drivers developed by Skullgirls studio Lab Zero.

Lab Zero's drivers allow arcade sticks (specifically those registered as a Generic USB GamePad or Joysticks) to work with the PlayStation 4. MadCatz's officially licensed line of sticks, which are generally the most popular among players, function this way and so are supported.

When asked by GameSpot if Street Fighter V on PS4 will also include these drivers and support for older arcade sticks, a Capcom representative said it was something the company is currently investigating.

"I can confirm that we are looking into this at the moment," said Capcom. "[We] will share more information soon."

The PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV rolled out on Tuesday. This version will include all costume DLC, including the recently released Vacation and Wild costumes, as well as the Omega Mode.

Capcom is partnering with Sony for the development and release of Street Fighter V. The game is currently in development for PS4 and PC only, and will support cross-platform play.
