Injustice: Gods Among Us fight stick is made by PDP
If you recall, last week, the news about the Injustice: Gods Among Us fight stick was announced as part of the Battle Edition. While the art on the stick looks pretty damn sweet, there was a mystery about just who was making the stick? Would it be more Japanese or American influenced? Is it just a collector’s item? Is it worth it?
The creator of the Injustice fight stick is Performance Designed Products (PDP). This company’s history brings me back to the Mortal Kombat fight stick which came in a similar package when it released in 2011. This makes sense to me since both games are published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by NetherRealm Studios. The logic here must be to stick with the company you know (horrible pun).
While I don’t have any of the specs on the stick itself, I remember the Mortal Kombat stick was very, very American in design. The thought process was that Mortal Kombat is an American franchise so it deserves an American style fight stick. If this sort of logic continues, the Injustice stick would also be American in design. From the picture of the stick it does appear to have the big bat stick and concave buttons… so there you go.
If the Injustice: Gods Among Us fight stick is something that interests you, remember you can get it as part of the Battle Edition for $150 and it comes with the game, stick, artwork, and an exclusive skin for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
