UFGT X game list is coming soon!
Sorry if this is such a noob question but… are there any games that will be played on a PS3? In the rules section it says that Kratos is banned from MK9, but if you’re going to use the Xbox version, that wouldn’t even be a possibility since he’s only on the PS3 version. I was considering registering this year, but if all the games are on xbox I’m SOL. -curious noob.
Yes, those rules are a holdover from last year. All games will be on Xbox 360 this year (except maybe Tekken 6). I dont see why this would leave you SOL, though. You have more than enough time to get a ps2 or ps1 controller and converter if you are a pad player.
Thanks for replying. Would you be able to recommend a good converter? I was hoping to use a dual shock ps3 pad. I was looking at the XCM Cross Fire Converter 2.0 but every description I’ve read said that it “must be used in conjunction with a WIRED Xbox 360 controller,” which doesn’t sound like could just show up to the tournament with my ps3 controller and that converter. Any suggestions/recommendations? Thanks.
The crossfires are annoying, yeah, because you need a wired xbox controller too. I highly suggest getting a PS2 pad, instead of a ps3 pad, and getting a converter for that. If you are an arcade stick player, just dual mod your stick or buy a 360 stick. Most tournament goers have sticks/controllers for both systems so they are prepared.
Lack of Blazblue is ghey….
You are more then welcome to run a BlazBlue side event on Sunday, but the extremely poor turnout last year and the insane number of releases this year left no room for it on the main schedule.
Super hype for this Keits. I can’t wait to attend my first big tournament.
I was wondering, are these fighting game are being played at a certain days or all these games are played three days in the row.
The biggest games run friday and saturday. smaller ones run either friday OR saturday. finals run on sunday.
SCV, SFxT, MK9, KoFXIII, and Tekken 6 are on 360? That makes no frickin sense. These games are mainly played on ps3 at just every tournament. Guess you won’t be getting my greenbacks.
SCV just came out. SFxT just came out. MK9 is superior on 360, and most of the MK players are happy about this change. Tekken 6 was moved back to PS3 due to complaints from Tekken players months ago. SCV, SFxT, and MK9 will remain on 360.
360 players have been forced to have PS3 controller options for years, and now PS3-only players can make the same concession we’ve all already made. Or, you can stay home and enjoy the stream.
This actually made me happy this stuff is on 360. Makes my dual mod seem worth it!
Is it possible to bring a keyboard to play ssf4 in on the 360? or does anyone know if its even compatible?
No, this is not possible. Your only option is to mod a keyboard into an Xbox 360 controller, or to make a custom arcade stick for 360 that uses keyboard buttons instead of the usual JLF stick and pushbuttons.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo why not dangit ive played using keyboard for over 10 yrs argh
Hey Keits, UFGT is probably going to be my first tournament and I’ll be flying down from Canada for it, however I’ll only have a PS3 Madcatz TE. Can you recommend a good 360 converter or will there be converters for PS3 to 360 for rent at your tournament? I’m trying to keep my costs down so dual modding or buying a 360 stick isn’t something I’d really want to be forced to do, any alternatives would be awesome, thanks!
Definitely check the thread on SRK where we’ve talked about converters. There will be a few for rent at the event as well, and a trio of experts dual modding sticks on site.
That’s awesome, thanks!
I have a question regarding the converters and dual modding sticks on site.
How much does it usually cost to get a stick modded ,on site?
Also, is there a cost for renting converters? I have a PS3 Hori Fight Commander 3 and was using it for MK9. Thanks.
We have not decided on pricing for converter rental, but it will be reasonable. Getting a duel mod ranges in price depending on what you start with, but you’d definitely want to tweet @phreakmods to get a quote.
Cool, thanks a lot, Keits!
Hey I already payed for sfxt tournament can i switch to Mortal Kombat 9 tournament without paying or do i have to buy the MK9 tournament too
To make a game switch, you need to email keits(at)shoryuken(dot)com with your full real name, registered gamertag, address, phone number, paypal email address, and the game you want to switch. No additional charge.
ok thats good
Keits . .
Is there anyway Dead Or Alive 5 will be there?
It certainly could, but I haven’t made any game roster decisions yet.
Will blazblue continuum shift extend be at the tournament this year?
A complete list of titles will be released when registrations opens.
I’m heading out this year and as an owner of both systems I am saying thanks for having ae and marvel on xbox most of the 2d fighter run better on Xbox especially capcom games.While Tekken should run on ps3.
YOU MUST HAVE BLAZBLUE! PLEASE!!
Why no blazblue
There will probably be a blazblue side tournament, but blazblue turnouts at past events that I’ve thrown have been pretty bad.
Make since, I hope they will have CP or extend
Hello I was just wondering if there is any way playstation all stars battle royal will be addedd. I would love to see 2v2 tournaments.
As of right now, we have no plans to do so.
Will I need to bring a Xbox and a PS3 controller or will I just need an Xbox controller?
Console announcements coming very soon.
I initiated into the registration and i don’t see TTT2 in the choice of games. Is it still in the list? And also, can i still add it even after i registered?
Please wait, we are fixing this. Sorry!
Is MK9 on Xbox 360 or PS3???
How do I confirm my registration with UFGT? I completed registration 2 weeks ago, but still haven’t heard anything ….how do I know you have received it? I have confirmation from Pay Pal that payment was made, but still no word from you (no email, nothing).
Your paypal reciept IS your confirmation.
is mk9 and scv only going ot be on ps3? i was going to play but on the 360.
PS3 only this year.
well i guess im out……
Totally thinking of making this my first live event, I’m starting to get pretty damn good in injustice. and I think I may be able to actually make it past the first pool..
what are the requirements playing with a ps3 controller
Ps3 controllers must be wired. No wireless controllers are allowed.
Also, how do side tournaments work, are they free or do you need to pay to get into them.
You must pay to enter them but they are not run by the UFGT staff
Im new to the whole tournaments thing. I currently play injustice on the 360 and do not own a PS3, so does this mean I need to buy a PS3 controller. Im not sure what a Dual Mod is, is it a controller that works on both PS3 and the 360?
Yes you’ll need to bring a ps3 controller (wired only)
alright thanks, what is the Dual Mod that Ive been hearing a lot about.
A controller that works on 2 or more systems is usually called a dual-mod
I have a MatCatz PS3 Arcade Stick with sanwa parts (buttons and Knob) is it compatible when hooked up to a 360? i have no problem opening up my Arcade Stick
It is not.
welp guess i’m out. will still be coming as a Spectator. Since i live a town over from rosemont. if anyone needs any advice on where to go after for bars, food. Rosemont is the new thing to do around Chicago so there’s no need to go downtown. if anyone wants options come up to me at the event and i will gladly give options!
You can always get your stick modded in the modders corner at UFGT.
But yeah, I’d love to hear your recomendations for Rosemont area food. Can you email me? keits at shoryuken dot com
Will there be a SSF4 teams tournament?
The UFGT staff will not be running teams tournaments. You are free to run one yourself on Sunday May 26th however, so long as it doesnt not interfere with the actual tournament.
i play on xbox and im absoultey not using a ps3 controller to play mk9. what are my options
You’ll need to bring a converter.
is there any possible way to be put in a later pool than 3 pm. im coming from wisconsin by car and i should be at the hotel around 4.
We cannot give preferential pool placement to any player. This would be unfair to the rest of the players.
ill be playing injustice and mk9
