The past month has seen several reports and feedback provided by the fighting game community about a nasty input lag in Tekken 7 on the PlayStation 4.
Good news is that Bandai Namco has finally gotten around to discovering the core of the issue. According to series director Katsuhiro Harada, the problem lies with “certain wired pads” that result in lag on the specific console. It was not mentioned as to which controllers or sticks in particular are plagued.
While some from the community are still inclined to believe that the pads are not the only source of input lag, the developer has made it clear that Tekken 7 on PlayStation 4 runs perfectly without.
A fix for the issue has been readied and will be rolled out with the next update, which may arrive as soon as later this month or early next.
Tekken 7 already received a minor update a couple of weeks back for PC. It introduced a few bug-fixes and stability improvements. Most importantly, it tweaked the matchmaking system of the game to no longer pit hackers against legitimate players anymore.
This was the second security update released for Tekken 7, following the incident where the anti-tamper technology of Denuvo was cracked within days of its release.
Tekken 7 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be featured at the annual iteration of the Evolution Championship Series (EVO 2017) next weekend.
