The Arcade Stick functions similar towards the layout of a generic arcade stick found on an arcade game machine. It also features very similar components, manufactored by Hori. It is compatible with the original PlayStation control pad protocol, therefore it can be used with many games for PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Namco PlayStation games such as Tekken or Soul Edge/Blade are labelled as compatible with the peripheral. It is also compatible with the PlayStation 3 upon use of a PS2 to PC USB adapter. Functionality was expanded on the PlayStation 3 upon the 2.0 firmware update. It is fully compatible with PlayStation 3 fighting games such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Super Street Fighter IV.
