This past Wednesday the Street Fighter V beta was up for about an hour for whatever reason. I managed to get some time with it. Now this is just based on what was available then, but you can now practise against a CPU or Player opponent as well as just a dummy. For me this is great as my friends and I can spar between matches. I played for a while against the CPU at the default difficulty, it wasn't very smart, but the AI probably isn't near finished yet.
My fun ended whey R.Mika's critcal art broke the beta, or it was just perfect timing....
Also the beta now asks you to create an account with the country you are playing from, which it says will be used for matchmaking. I hope it will will let me share the account between PS4 and PC, especially in the final game. I don't want to have to earn/buy stuff twice.
I can also confirm that the DLC needs to match the region of the main game. In my case it was a US copy of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm that wouldn't work with the EU DLC. Thankfully the DLC was free so I just set up a US PSN account.
Have you tried using the AV cable with an N64 or a Gamecube? They all use the same cable, then you can determine if it is the cable at fault and not the console.
Also if you have the ability to use RGB scart on your telly (it's kinda rare outside europe as I understand) I highly recommend getting a RGB Scart cable for your SNES. It makes a world of difference and in my opinion looks way better than any CRT screen.
Have you also considered that maybe your new TV cannot display such an old and small resolution?
@amafi: It's very mod friendly. All the fittings are standard and I had no issue fitting the Sanwa OBSF 30's and OBSF 24. The Hayabusa Stick uses a similar 'bracket' as the Sanwa JLF. I say similar because all the screw holes are the same but it's a little wider. So a JLF will fit no bother but a Hayabusa may not fit in a stick with a JLF.
I can't compare it to a Madcatz TE and I haven't needed to mod my Q4 but I would say it was just as easy as modding the Madcatz Standard Edition.
@hassun: I pre-ordered mine on amazon a month before release and I was glad I did as it was out of stock almost immediately. However the price has dropped £35 from what I paid, so if you're willing to wait, you could get the stick and buttons for less than I paid for my basic stick.
FYI changing the buttons/stick is just as easy as it is on any madcatz stick.
I bought a Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai recently and would highly recommend it. I wasn't a fan of the "Kuro" buttons, so I replaced them with Sanwa OBSF 30's and a 24 for the start button. The Kuro buttons just felt strange and they had this horrible squeak if you hit them off centre, this would probably go away once you break them in. The stick I thought felt perfect. Overall I spent £145 (£120 for the stick, £25 for the buttons) which is still over £50 cheaper than a Madcatz PS4 stick even if I was lucky enough to find one in stock.
Now I use this as my main stick on PS3, over my Qanba Q4 RAF. The stick also works on the PC in PS3 or PS4 mode, the only real difference is the touch pad counts as an extra button in PS4 mode.
