A while back, Sony said that PS3 controllers would not work with the PS4. However, the issue of PS3 USB fight sticks was still a bit vague. Well, we now have confirmation that Mad Catz’s popular line of PS3 fight sticks will explicitly not be compatible with the PS4.
This news comes by way of Mad Catz senior product development manager Richard Neville who said in a statement to Joystiq “The PlayStation 4 will require a whole new set of peripherals.” We have already seen the first next-gen peripheral in the way of the new Killer Instinct TE2 Fight Stick that we got to see at E3. However, Mad Catz has not revealed any plans for PS4 joysticks at this time.
