As we’re sure you’ve heard a million times by now, Street Fighter V is live! Exciting! Despite ongoing server issues, the community finally has a chance to come together and play.
It’s a sad truth, but transitioning to PlayStation 4 can come with some with some financial hits apart from just buying the console. But if you’re planning on using a legacy controller to mitigate some of this cost, the steps to getting your arcade stick working can be a little confusing. Never fear! Shoryuken is here to help you out.
Unfortunately, you’re going to need a DualShock 4 for each legacy device you plan on using, as disconnecting the controller used to authenticate will diconnect the older arcade stick or pad.
As for PC, Street Fighter V natively supports a number of devices, but those without Xinput functionality have been left in the dust until a future patch. Bafael recently put together a great video showing how to get controllers of this nature working.
Editor’s note: We were recently informed that this workaround has the potential to cause input lag, so your mileage may vary.
Street Fighter V is now available on PlayStation 4 and PC. We hope these guides help!
