Mad Catz Japan announced that the newest Mad Catz stick, “Team Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Versus Series SH,” will be releasing on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 version is slated for an August 30 release, while the Xbox 360 will be releasing in September. The stick will be made available with a “monitor special price” of 19800 yen (~253 USD). Starting on August 11 at 1PM JST, the PS3 stick can be pre-ordered here at the Mad Catz store on Amazon Japan, with 360 version pre-order availability to be announced at a later date.
The VS Series SH is equipped with Sanwa Denshi’s silent joystick lever and buttons which significantly reduce noise levels during play. Coming in at 4000 yen cheaper than the SFXTK V.S. Edition, which uses the same form factor, but with the silent parts on top of that, the Versus Series SH is a shockingly great deal.
