Street Fighter V Mad Catz FightStick now available for pre-order

Dedicated fighting game players who prefer a fightstick over standard controllers can now pre-order a special fightstick themed around Capcom's upcoming release Street Fighter V, courtesy of gaming hardware manufacturer Mad Catz.

The fightstick, which is expected to ship sometime during this holiday season, is compatible with both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles, even thought Street Fighter V is only set to launch for PS4 and PC. In addition to Street Fighter V, the stick is also compatible with several other popular fighting games, including Street Fighter IV, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Mortal Kombat X and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round among others. Like most other fightsticks, the Street Fighter V stick features eight buttons, a durable joystick, swappable faceplate art and internal storage.

The first Street Fighter V fightstick can be pre-ordered here for $229.99.
