Mad Catz awarding top placers at Capcom Cup with limited edition Tournament Edition 2 fightstick, 12 more to be auctioned for charity

While there are $20,000 in prizes up for grabs at the Capcom Cup this weekend, Mad Catz is contributing some very special hardware. A commemorative, Xbox 360 version of the Mad Catz Tournament Edition 2 fightstick has been designed just for the Capcom Cup, and only a handful of players will be able to get their mitts on them.

A total of 24 limited edition TE2 sticks were made, and 12 of them will be awarded to the top placers at the event. The remaining 12 will be auctioned off on eBay, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross in order to aid those affected by the disastrous storm, 'Haiyan'.

4 sticks will go up for auction each day, beginning on Saturday December 14 - 16, at 12:01 a.m. PST. The auctions will be open to world wide bidding, and will run for a little over a week.

Hold Back to Block was among the many in attendance at NEC 14 last weekend, and while there, they scored an interview with Capcom's fighting game community specialist, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas. During their chat, Peter touches on multiple subjects, including how he initially got hired at Capcom, character changes in Ultra Street Fighter 4, the Capcom Cup, and more.

When on the subject of USF4 character changes, Combofiend brought up Balrog specifically. He stated that the charge boxer is one of the characters that has been changed the most from his current version.

While Balrog play is typically very defensive, the Capcom representative explained that 'Rog can still play defense, but with the USF4 changes he can now tap into his Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo playstyle, which was much more offensive.
