Update 1.03 of Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 4 Downloadable Now, Fixes More Prominent Issues

The next update to the PlayStation 4 port of Ultra Street Fighter IV is live.

Version 1.03 is available for download and it's one of the patches designed to stabilize the issues that plagued the stock release. One of the primary fixes in this update is the reduction of inherent input delay down to 89 milliseconds, or 5.3 frames, according to DisplayLag. It's a couple of milliseconds more than the Xbox 360 version at 85ms/5.1 frames.

Another major initiative with the update was fixing the audio end. A level's sound effects replacing character movement effects, balancing volume levels for multiple audio channels and other bugs have been resolved.

Other aspects of the patch include improved online performance and a graphics bug with Juri.

As for further updates, Capcom and Sony are still making sure this port is, as advertised, the definitive version of USFIV.

Pre-E3 Street Fighter V Trailer Shows Off New V-Gauge Mechanics

The details behind Street Fighter V's newest features, as well as more gameplay footage, have been announced before E3!

New to Street Fighter IV's successor is the Variable Gauge, V-Gauge for short. Getting hit or using a character's V-Skill, such as Ryu's parry, will fill up the gauge allowing players to use two abilities. Using the same command as a Focus Attack, V-Skill replaces SFIV's mechanic. With one bar of V-Gauge, players can escape block stun like Street Fighter Alpha's Alpha Counter with V-Reversal. A full gauge allows players to engage V-Trigger, a mode that provides various changes to a character's moves which can act beneficial in matches.

Aside from the changes in the meter system, SFV also has some differences from its predecessor. The stun gauge returns so both players have a good idea of how close are they to that state. Hard knockdowns only happen during Critical Arts and when being thrown. Backdashes lose their invulnerability.

IGN has a full breakdown of the announced character's V-Skill and V-Trigger here. You can take a look at a pre-E3 trailer after the jump! Street Fighter V will be coming to PC and is console-exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

-Revelator- Play Guide Reveals Throw Techs, Other New Mechanics

The location tests for Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- will start later today in Japan, and Arc System Works has released a manual for players who will be coming to the event. The guide not only shows the move listings for Jack-O and the returning Johnny (who sees some tweaks and new additions) but also details several new features for Revelator.

One big addition to Xrd is the return of throw breaks. First added to Guilty Gear during Accent Core, throw breaks return as a one-button input like in those older GG titles. There is no indication of the length of the throw break window yet.

Another addition to Revelator is that of a generic blitz shield follow-up, that will cost 25 percent tension. Finally, players will be able to spend their Burst meter to supercharge one of their character's Overdrive attacks.

Players will be able to find out more details about these and other changes as the location tests occur on June 5-7 in Japan.

Jack-O Joins Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-

The mystery character for the upcoming location test of -Revelator- has been revealed, and her name is Jack-O. According to an image uploaded to Twitter from this week's Famitsu, Jack-O is a woman working for Guilty Gear's enigmatic antogonist That Man, although little else is known about her. A ball and chain is attached to her leg and she holds a mask that seems to mirror the appearance of the face on the ball and chain.

Guilty Gear player Ho-chan also says a new system change is coming to Revelator that will allow players to “trigger a fatal blow after successfully activated blitz shield.” It's unclear at this time what that could mean.

With the location test coming up on June 5-7, it's likely that more information about the new game will be available soon. Hit the jump for the full image of Jack-O.
