The guys over at Mad Catz kindly extended us an invite to go head down to Super vs Battle 2010 and interview Daigo Umehara, Super Street Fighter IV World Champion and key member of ‘Team Mad Catz’.

It’s a bit of an expensive investment, but the Mad Catz Super Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition S FightStick does have a number of key benefits.

Highly recommended.

Check them out below.
