Since Ultra Street Fighter 4 dropped on PlayStation 4 yesterday, the Street Fighter community has discovered a laundry list of problems with the game. The multitude of issues has had players deeming the game unfit for tournaments.

Display Lag tests input delay on PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4, discovers that it's worse than PS3

Update: Some readers have asked about how Display Lag tests latency. Here's a link to their page describing the methods used. You can also view more information here.

Earlier: Sony advertised that Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PS4 had solved the issue of input delay bothering professional players on the PS3. While the recent release of USF4 for PS4 has shown a ton of bugs, the lag of button inputs was a selling point, so surely it'll prove superior to the PS3 version, right?

Display Lag, which has done many tests between monitors and game consoles, decided to put that to the test. What kind of input lag are you facing at the moment? Well, if you're playing USF4 on PC in an optimized state, you can expect about 3.5 frames of input lag. On 360, you should encounter about 5.1 frames of delay.

Continue reading below to find out the amount of frames you can expect to lose and to see the footage for yourself.

While there has been no official word on an incoming patch, it's extremely likely one will be coming to fix the multitude of problems. In the meantime, though, we're left with a port containing numerous problems.

For those of us who have already bought Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PS4, we can do our best to laugh at its eccentricities until a patch that surely must be on its way arrives. Some of the glitches are ridiculous looking or sounding. You have new "Mecha Dudley", Juri proving you can be in two places at once, and so much more!

Check out the various videos below showing off some of the problems in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and do your best to chuckle, lest you get too salty and raise your blood pressure.

The recent release of Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PS4 has been full of glitches and bugs ranging in severity from slow menus to Juri doppelgangers appearing on the screen.

Community reports multiple differences in Ultra Street Fighter 4 for PlayStation 4

Ultra Street Fighter 4 hit North American PlayStation 4's just a few hours ago. The community has quickly noticed a few changes in multiple areas of the game.

There have been reports of menu transitions being slower than normal. Beyond this some of the moves, such as Guile's Sonic Boom, have had aesthetic changes made to them. The Training Stage appears to have a slightly blurrier background.

Other reports have stated that it appears the game is actually the 1.04 version. Considering this is not the most recent version, it's very likely we'll see updates in the near future for the PS4 version of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

We have reached out to Sony, who handled the port, for details and are awaiting a response at this point. We will keep you updated with any and all information as it becomes available.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 officially released for PlayStation 4 in North America

It's been long awaited, though it seems the last several hours of this morning have been the longest, but Ultra Street Fighter 4 is finally available to download on PlayStation 4.

Many gamers have been eagerly waiting by their consoles, refreshing every few minutes to see if the title would pop up. This version of the game will be the new tournament standard moving forward.

The PS4 version of USF4 will feature all DLC content for the game thus far, including every costume for every character. One of the biggest questions for the North American crowd in regards to the new release, is whether or not the online game play will be smoother and more playable than in previous console versions.

If you've downloaded the game and have been able to test it out, we'd love to hear your feedback in the comments below.

Check out the first look at a Street Fighter 5 Charlie statue, Oro statue complete with turtle, and much more

BornFree has uploaded a preview for all the worldwide Street Fighter statues currently in development. There's a lot more of them than you might have thought.

While some of these are still pending approval from Capcom, almost all of them are gorgeous. Seeing Oro rendered as a statue with his turtle is wonderful. Also, the Evil Ryu statue featuring his alternative costume with long hair is refreshing. It's rare that we get to actually view statues wearing any outfit other than their primary ones, so it's a treat to see these designers take risks.

Particularly exciting is the first look at Charlie. He will make his display appearance at the Capcom Booth at SDCC this year. Despite being a work that's in progress, the model itself looks outstanding.

Fortunately, BornFree appears as passionate as the designers, and he goes into detail discussing his thoughts on each one.

I've grabbed images of a few that stood out to me. There's plenty more, though, so make sure to watch the video after you've checked out the my selections. {% load imagegallery_extras %} {% do_story_gallery 32 0 as gallery32 %} {{gallery32.showgallery}}

Wolfkrone's clutch finisher, NuckleDu's big victory and an incredibly back and forth Mortal Kombat X Grand Finals; Combo Breaker highlights

The second major tournament of this weekend played out within the limits of The Windy City. Combo Breaker saw a group of strong players including the likes of EG|Justin Wong, Liquid|NuckleDu, EG|Ricki Ortiz, cR|SonicFox and more take to the sticks at this Capcom Pro Tour event.

We've got a few of our favorite moments from the tourney to share with you now.

Wolfkrone's Clutch Combo

In his bout with EG|K-Brad, Wolfkrone showed a few times that his execution was not particularly on point. Those that are familiar Street Fighter 4 know that this can spell absolute disaster for C. Viper players.

In the third round of their third match, Wolfkrone narrowly escapes death and hits a big combo just when it matters most.

Velociraptor's Top Tiers – a look at the strongest characters and styles throughout the history of Street Fighter 4

It's been six years since Street Fighter 4 dropped in 2009, and we’ve seen no less than five different versions of the game. With Street Fighter 5 on the horizon, we’re sure to see, not necessarily the death, but certainly the end of a major chapter of the SF4 era.

In this article, I'll be looking back at the five iterations of SF4: Vanilla, Super, Arcade Edition, AE2012 and Ultra, analyzing which specific character(s), and style of character was most favored in each and why. Please keep in mind that this analysis is my personal opinion based on my experiences with the community and the game.

As a final note, we very well may have discovered tech after the fact that would make certain characters even better in previous iterations. I’m looking at how the community handled these characters and not necessarily their true potential. So questions like “What if we had fleshed out Akuma’s vortex potential in Vanilla?” don’t really apply. Hit the jump to get started.

Daigo takes the lead in the Capcom Pro Tour standings; see who else is currently leading the pack

After an impressive win from the Losers bracket at last weekend's Stunfest, MCZ|Daigo Umehara has now jumped up to 514 points, passing /r/Kappa|Infiltration in the process.

Despite a third place victory, Infiltration has been awarded Capcom Cup berth as both Daigo and EG|Momochi had already qualified via previous Premier tournament victories.

Thirty-two players will qualify for this year's Capcom Cup Finals, and they will prepare to pass the half way point of the season as we finish out the month of May. An interesting natural outcome of this year's system, many top players who have already qualified continue to attend, and win, Premier tournaments.

As a result, just as we've seen in Stunfest 2015, we can expect to see third, fourth and possibly even fifth place finishers of future Premier tourneys still securing spots for the finals. This is likely a result of the inflated pot bonuses Capcom has sprinkled the events with.

Hit the jump to see the current top 20 list for the Capcom Pro Tour.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 PlayStation 4 footage a day before its official release

Last week, it was announced that PlayStation 4 users would be able to get their hands on Capcom's most popular fighting title, Ultra Street Fighter 4, beginning tomorrow, May 26th.

While it's not May 26th just yet here in the states, it looks like some players have already downloaded the PS4 port. Today, a run through of the game's arcade mode was uploaded on to YouTube, allowing us to see the next-gen port in action.

While the level of play here isn't anything you'd see at EVO, it's still interesting to see how the game runs. Unless I've missed my mark, the game's graphics appear to have been polished up a bit.
