HD Remix patch, Mad Catz controllers and Club event

HD Remix patch, Mad Catz controllers and Club event Capcom employees Seth Killian and Christian Svensson were on the Unity Boards talking about the HD Remix patch, what the availability is looking like for the Mad Catz controllers and if you're allowed to bring a guest to the Street Fighter Club event.

Here's what they had to say.
When will we hear details about the patch for Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix?

Sven: Patience... news is coming soonish.

Are the Madcatz SFIV Pads limited edition too? — Ironic-Lolrus

Sven: There isn't an unlimited supply there either, but there's a lot more of those than there are of either stick. You probably don't have to pre-order, but I'm not sure I'd wait until March either, just in case.

How many Mad Catz FightSticks will the Capcom store get?

Sven: Our store will have a VERY limited supply, so it will be a lucky few that get in (we can't justify carrying inventory of $50K worth of sticks unfortunately).

I suspect a release for ACTIVE Unity SF fans is something we'll do, similar to what we did with the MM9 and Street Fighter HD Remix media kits. If there's anything left, then they'll go on general sale.

Are there any differences for the PS3 and 360 versions of Street Fighter IV? — Daemon Gildas

Sven: We've had them set up side by side at loads of events and even along side the arcade machines too. Any differences are negligible. I'm sure some fans will start doing pixel by pixel comparisons (they always do), but if in all of these appearances, none of the media have harped on any differences in real world side by sides, you shouldn't concern yourself about them.

My advice, buy what your friends buy so you can play online with them. Better yet, buy both. :)

Are attendees allowed to bring one guest to the upcoming San Francisco Street Fighter Club like the previous events?

Seth: The San Francisco Fight Club on Friday does not include an automatic "+1." As someone who goes to a bunch of these kinds of events, it's a good rule to assume that unless it says explicitly "you and a guest" or "+1" or something, +1s are not okay. :(

We want to get everybody we can through the door to have a chance to play, but you should have your friend sign up ASAP. I'm holding back a few extra spots for Unity members, and the capacity at this event should be a little higher than the last two, both of which help your chances.
