PS3 & PS4 frame-rate analysis of Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- by Digital Foundry

Digital Foundry, the premier graphical analysis team, took some time off from their usual videos to see how the newest iteration of Guilty Gear Xrd runs.

DF member Thomas Morgan details the differences of the unique character animations compared to other aspects of Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- including environment, camera movement and more.

Similar to their other frame-rate tests, Digital Foundry sees how the game runs using graphs for frame-rate as well as frame-time. The game on PlayStation 4 displays a full consistent 60fps with no alterations to the 16ms frame-time all in native 1080p. When it comes to the PlayStation 3 version, the game pairs back to 720p with lowered graphical features. Even if the PS3 version has to deal with minor frame drops and screen tearing, 60fps is still maintained most of the time.

The analysis video, as well as the graphical panel from GDC 2015 can be found below.

Jasen's Customs TE2+ EZ Mod for Mad Catz TE2+ sticks coming exclusively to EVO 2016

If you are going to EVO 2016 and want your Mad Catz Arcade FightStick TE2+ to work for all current generation consoles with one simple board, you might have only one opportunity.

The TE2+ gets its own EZ Mod from Jasen's Customs following the release of the original TE2 model. Similar to the normal TE2 EZ Mod, this version is entirely solderless but requires clipping of the USB cable from the original PCB.

Designed to work with the Brook Universal Fighting Board, the EZ Mod contains LEDs that work uniquely when in specific console modes including player-specific lights and colors on PlayStation 4 while the Xbox One renders all white much like the normal controller. Another aspect found on the TE2+ EZ Mod is that the Lock button is swapped by Turbo.

The EZ Mod board itself will be priced at $34.95 only at the Arcade Shock booth. If you are looking to get your TE2+ upgraded at the event, Jasen's Customs' own Jasen Hicks will help sell and install the kits.


Persona fighters, Nitroplus Blasterz join US Round 1 NESiCA library

Round 1 locations in the United States are adding three games to their NESiCAxLive game selection on July 1: Nitroplus Blasterz, Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena and Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold.

While the first two titles are already available on consoles in North America, P4U2 was updated in Japan in January 2015 to version 2.0 on the NESiCA system but that update never reached home systems.

The P4U2 update contains many changes to both the system and individual characters, which left players in the U.S. disappointed by the seeming abandonment of support for the title.


New products from Qanba, including the Drone arcade stick for PS4, available now

After some time of silence, arcade stick manufacturer Qanba is slowly reemerging with new products.

Qanba's Drone is the company's first arcade stick designed and officially licensed for the PlayStation 4. It also works on the PlayStation 3 and PC. Built on a small form factor weighing in at three pounds, the Drone features Qanba's own arcade parts, an anti-slip bottom pad and a tournament lock switch.

Another new product from Qanba is a slightly altered version of the existing Q1 arcade stick. The Carbon arcade stick is a low price stick for PC and Android devices. It bears much of the Q1's features including a small body and the distinctive table clamps.

As a successor to the Defender, Qanba released the Guardian arcade stick bag. From the looks of it, the Guardian will allow players to store their arcade sticks a little easier than the Defender.

All three of these Qanba products are available now on Eightarc or directly from Qanba's USA webstore.
