Lab Zero Successfully Integrates PS3 Arcade sticks on PS4

Although not directly related to Namco's fighting games, it is definitely relevant to everyone's interests. Lab Zero games have managed to include the drivers for PS3 compatible arcade sticks with the PS4 version of the game and thus saving gamers 100's of dollars from investing in PS4 specific arcade sticks. Fans of Tekken 7 will be facing the same dilemma once the game hits PS4 eventually. Now that everyone knows it's possible and Lab Zero is offering the drivers for free to any developer that wants to use it, you all know who to talk to make sure this feature will be in T7. More quotes from the developer below courtesy of Polygon.

EDIT: Recently it's come to light that Lab Zero weren't solely responsible for the creation of the driver, it was a collaboration between Lab Zero and Naughty Dog.

Old School Japanese Soul Calibur 3on3 Tournament Videos

Payopayo8484 uploaded a whole bunch of Soul Calibur 1 arcade tournament footage recently and they're a really cool look into what that game was like back in the years of 1999 ~ 2000 in Japan. FUG was an absolute monster with that Yoshimitsu back in those days. The video quality is pretty low but it's still good for viewing. Thanks goes to APCR for the heads-up.

Summary of Harada's Chat Session at The Location Test

UPDATE: I've edited the line regarding the Tekken 7 budget in light of it actually being incorrect. My apologies everyone, if anyone else spots any other incorrect translation please feel free to post them and I will quickly update it.

If you were waching the Namco Sugamo stream, you may remember seeing Katsuhiro Harada discussing with the stream a lot of details on Tekken 7 and it's developments. There's a lot of interesting bits of information mentioned within his short chat session that I feel is worth knowing about so I had it translated below. The summary comes from Kirito on Zexi but it has been spread to 2ch and the fighting game blog Chigesoku which I am sourcing for the summary.
