The Fighting Edge is licensed by PlayStation so you can be sure that it features great compatibility with numerous PS3 games.

Hori’s “Hayabusa” stick lever allows for fast and precise inputs, and the “Kuro” buttons offer unsurpassed response and durability. Hori knows that when you’re in a big fight, timing and accuracy are everything, that’s why they are introducing Tournament Mode.

Finally, the Fighting Edge looks fantastic and the glossy black panel with blue LED accents gives the arcade stick a premium finish.
