PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale lets fight sticks compete on PS3

Everyone knows the elegant weapon for a more civilized age is the fight stick, the tried-and-true sidearm of every fighting game fan the world over. And so SuperBot Entertainment announced on Facebook today that the PS3 version of PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale will support fight stick peripherals.

"Fans of the fighting game genre can use their favorite arcade-style controller to play Battle Royale to full effect," the Facebook post mentions. "Every attack, combo, and strategy that can be performed on the DualShock 3 controller is seamlessly mapped to arcade button layouts."

Actually, there is one difference between using the fight stick and DualShock 3 – throwing. On the DualShock 3, the move is done using the right analog stick; on a fight stick, it'll be "an easy button combination, similar to many traditional fighting games."
