Ultra Street Fighter 4 launches on PS4 today with multiple bugs

The Street Fighter 4 generation is roughly seven years old, but today's Ultra Street Fighter 4 launch on PlayStation 4 may have been the most tumultuous launch yet, with users reporting severe bugs.


Ultra Street Fighter IV released on PlayStation 4 earlier today, with Capcom looking for it to be the definitive version of the long-running Street Fighter IV generation. Unfortunately, it has more than a couple of problems.

Users across Twitter are reporting a number of issues with the game. Some of them veer more towards the hardcore crowd, with professional gamers noting that there's severe input lag and delays that are not present across other versions. Then there are the bugs, of which there appear to be some severe ones.

Shacknews has compiled some of the more egregious ones below, courtesy of poster kill9 and the rest of the Chatty community. These bugs include sound glitches, visual hiccups, missing PSN handles during online sesions, connecting to online sessions period, and more.

Other glitches and general outrage is filling the r/Kappa subreddit. Some pros like Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong are pointing out that a patch will eventually come, but a launch like this is severely problematic for users of all stripes, pro or casual. This is without even mentioning that this is supposed to be the version of the game slated to be used during July's Evo World Championships.

Shacknews has reached out to Capcom for comment regarding this launch.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
