With so many of us getting Ultra Street Fighter 4 today for PS4, knowing exactly how to get your PS3 stick to work with your PS4 is vital. It's not as simple as plug and play.

Fortunately, Combofiend has released a guide detailing how to get your Mad Catz TE or whatnot ready as soon as possible.

Mortal Kombat fans might find the following guide almost identical to the one they've been using for MKX. That's because the backwards compatibility has been implemented in similar fashion.

To get playing with your PS3 arcade stick in Ultra Street Fighter 4, follow the guide below.
For one player:

– Power up the PS4.
– Use a PS4 controller to sign into an account or the guest account.
– Load up USFIV.
– Once the game is loaded, plug the PS3 stick of your choice into the other USB slot and the stick should now function.
– Please note that:
the PS4 controller will also control the character even though the PS3 stick is plugged in.
the PS4 controller used to sign in must remain synched to the PS4. If it loses power or connectivity, the joystick will become deactivated.

For two players:

– Power up the PS4.
– Use a PS4 controller to sign into an account or the guest account.
– Load up USFIV.
– Once the game has loaded, player 1 should unplug the PS4 controller, yet ensure that it remains synched and plug in a PS3 stick of choice into one of the vacant USB slots. It should now function.
– Player 1 should head to versus mode.
– Once at the selection screen, Player 2 will then have to sign into another account or a guest account.
– Once signed in, Player 2 should then press the “option” button to join versus mode.
– Player 2 should now be able to move around the selection screen.
– Once this is completed, player 2 should unplug in the PS4 controller, yet ensure that it remains synched and plug in a PS3 stick of choice into one of the vacant USB slots. The stick should now function.
– Please note that:
the PS4 controllers will also control the characters even though the PS3 sticks are plugged in.
the PS4 controllers used to sign in must remain synched to the PS4. If either loses power or connectivity, the corresponding joystick will become deactivated.
