Mad Catz: “Well under 50” complaints about sticky SFIV sticks

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 20 February 2009 00:00 GMT


Following reports of complaints about Mad Catz’s Street Fighter IV FightSticks getting stuck thanks to lose washers, the peripherals firm has said it’s had less than 50 complaints about the issue.

The issue “does NOT happen on each Arcade FightStick and has been reported on a small number of units,” said Alex Verrey, Mad Catz PR boss.

Verrey told 1UP that complaints on the matter were “well under 50,” and that the issue had “blown out of proportion.”

Glad that’s sorted out. Thanks, Joystiq.
