Online Lag Is A Problem For Street Fighter IV

While speaking to OXM, Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono isn't hiding the fact that online play and lag issues is posing a problem for the game:
“Obviously, lag will be a huge problem for online play. We’re working on it. Compared to other games such as Virtua Fighter and Soul Calibur, they’ve got replay functions and so forth. It’s quite difficult for 3D Street Fighter at the moment.”

“In order to prevent the lag we’re thinking about trying to balance it up at user interface level and input timing by using joystick or something like that. We still haven’t got a complete plan as yet. We’re still working on it. That’s all we can say at the moment.”
Hmm we all hope they can sort it out, no one wants an epic title like Street Fighter IV to have a black spot... full interview at the source.
