PlayStation 3 Fight Sticks Compatible with Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat arrives on a new generation of hardware April 14th, built specifically for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One! Don't throw away those old fight sticks just yet, though! The klassics are still in vogue!

As revealed during the Kombat Kast and flaunted by Creative Director Ed Boon on Twitter: PlayStation 3 fight sticks will continue to function with PlayStation 4 version of Mortal Kombat X!

Performance Design Products (PDP) created official fight sticks for the Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition in 2011, released later individually, and again for Klassic Edition [learn more].

Update: It seems the credit must go to Lab Zero Games, from whom NetherRealm Studios has licensed the necessary drivers. The Lab Zero pedigree is built on original members of the Skullgirls development team. The PS4 backwards compatibility driver was reportedly worked on by John Bellomy.
