Last week, Ultra Street Fighter IV was released for the PlayStation 4 and many players reported a wide range of issues with it. Because of this, the game was pulled from Capcom’s Pro Tour. A Street Fighter game being pulled from a Street Fighter tournament is bad enough, but things have gotten worse. Now EVO, which is the world’s most famous fighting game tournament, has decided to drop the PS4 game from the competition.
Evo’s Joey Cuellar tweeted that the tournament’s USFIV matches will now be played on the Xbox 360:
<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>We are happy to announce that the Ultra SF4 tournament at Evo 2015 will be played on XBOX 360! <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Evo2015?src=hash”>#Evo2015</a></p>— Joey Cuellar (@EvilMrWizard) <a href=”https://twitter.com/EvilMrWizard/status/604757523728506880″>May 30, 2015</a></blockquote>

Considering how Sony wanted PlayStation to be the new home of Street Fighter, this isn’t a good situation for the company. However, given how broken the game is for some users (I personally haven’t experienced the same sort of glitches in the videos), there was no way that EVO was going to let that version be played during competition.
