Clip: Why 'stickless joysticks' should be banned for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

DFW Jay recorded a video with Amp demonstrating why the Hit Box / Fight Board controller should be banned for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, while also asking Capcom to fix the input exploits that are possible in the game now.

There are a couple of things that are possible besides blocking in both directions, check out the video for a run down.

Amp added these notes in the comments on the subject.

1) Yes, I should have worded myself better in the video. Hit boxes can cause problems, but it does not intrinsically cause problems simply by existing. I understand this, and if you read the thread on Tech Talk where we are extensively researching this issue, I am one of the people who understand this better than most.

2) People assume that since the Husser Brothers' branded Hit Box doesn't do this, that SOCD inputs are somehow an "Xbox exclusive" issue. This is far from true, our research has shown that SOCD's are possible on the PS3, and thus Capcom needs to patch this issue.

3) I and the members of SRK's Tech Talk forum are in the process of writing a full PSA for TO's and the community to fully and completely explain the SOCD issue, why it's not a console exclusive or controller exclusive issue, and what can be done about it.
