  • Product Description

    Headers are not compatible with Gummo TE2 mod, but headers will function with compatible JST headers and wiring.

    NOTE: It is recommended that you confirm that the latest firmware is installed on your device by visiting the Brook PS4 Device Support page, downloading the firmware update app, and following instructions in the manual. new-window-icon.png Links to Brook device firmware update information and instructions are available in the Support tab.

    Consoles of the previous generation - Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 - were home to dozens of arcade style titles, and specifically fighting games such as Street Fighter IV, Guilty Gear, Skullgirls, Mortal Kombat, and many others.  The newest consoles, Xbox One and Playstation 4, are building an entirely new A-list of fighting games such as Street Fighter V, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear Xrd, and Mortal Kombat X.  Many in the fighting game community desire owning a FightStick that offers compatibility with each console, in a manner that is easy to install, and relatively simple to use.

    Taiwanese company Brook - designers of the popular family of Super Converters and one of the first manufacturers whose converters managed to gain tentative acceptance by EVO - returns with the a new solution.  The Universal Fighting Board is a robust, solderless PCBA that works with PS3/PC, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    Brook UP5 add-on compatible with this device via firmware updatePlaystation 5 Compatibility via UP5 Add-On Board

    Brook gives players control of the latest generation Playstation consoles thanks to Brook UP5 Playstation 5 Add-On PCB. To use, be sure to update the your device to its latest firmware version.

    Additional Console Compatibility

    Over time, firmware updates increased the versatility of the Universal Fighting Board, making it compatible with even more consoles:

    • Nintendo Switch
    • Nintendo Wii/WiiU
    • Playstation Classic (Mini Console)
    • Neo Geo Mini

    Please visit the "Support" tab for information on how to connect to these additional consoles via hotkey.


    The UFB automatically detects four consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360) when connected via USB.  This marks the first time in this generation to have access to the latest consoles in a single PCB.  Notable features include:

    • SOCD Cleaner.  This removes Simultaneous Opposite Cardinal Directions, so controller cannot register multiple directions at the same time.  HitBox owners benefit from this utility. CPT Tournament compliance (Up + Down = Neutral, Left + Right = Neutral) via firmware update.
    • Firmware upgradeable system via USB connection.  Please see "Support" tab for links to latest firmware and additional wiring information.
    • No 8 minute timeout reset needed.
    • XINPUT Mode (when applicable).
    • Screw terminal for solderless connections.
    • 20 pin (2x10) housing for future expansion or connection to other PCBA (requires soldering 20-Pin (2x10) male header).
    • Similar form factor to Akishop PS360+ Multi-Console Joystick PCB makes installation familiar to most joystick builders.
    • USB B port for attaching 18 Inch Male A-B USB 2.0 Cable to Neutrik NAUSB connector, then 10 Foot Male A-B USB 2.0 Cable to console.

    What's Included

    The Universal Fighting Board is wrapped in a padded static-free pouch, and encased in a protective, professionally-designed box.  Software support is available for download from Brook's website.

    If you were considering replacing your existing FightStick PCBA or building a custom joystick of your own, the Brook Universal Fighting Board is the single best way to prepare you for the next tournament, no matter which modern console you're playing on.

    Tournament Acceptance

    As of now, the Brook Super Converter and Wingman series are allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events.  Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments. This policy is a tentative acceptance - should the converter become disabled via Sony firmware update before EVO, it could face a ban.  You can learn more about it herenew-window-icon.png



    Firmware updates, plus update guide for the Universal Fighting Board are available via Brook's website.  

    Occasionally Sony's firmware updates have removed Brook's PS4 support.  Brook is quick to update their firmware to address it.  If you are purchasing for the first time, it is always worthwhile to check that you have the latest firmware installed for the device.

    Manual Connection to Additional Consoles

    While console autodetection is possible when connecting to Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3, others require a button press before plugging into the console. Below are steps to perform this action:

      • 1P for PS3 
      • 2P for PS4
      • 3P for Xbox 360

    1. Works as advertised

      Easy enough to install with the 20-pin harness and Neutrik adapter. Works as well as I expected it to. I haven't used with anything other than PC but it has been as simple as plug and play once it is installed. Definitely worth the price to be able to use it with any hardware aside from PS5. on Oct 20th 2022

    2. All in one board

      Works on all systems mentioned. PS5 however will need an extension on Aug 2nd 2021

    3. Worth the money, simple to use

      This board is a little pricey, but overall it's worth it. Being able to plug and play any console is amazing.

      Also, installation is a snap. If you combine this with the 20-pin joystick harness, you'll be done in 5 minutes. It took me 5 times longer to get the old wires off of a Chewlix control panel, than it did to wire two of these in.

    4. a solid all around choice that bridges console generations.

      bought this a while back and it's served me pretty well. I'm someone who keeps their old consoles around and plays a variety of games so having access to old and new systems on the same stick is a very useful.

      pretty much everything you'd want out of a wired board, aside from audio, is here.

    5. Had a hiccup focus attack made it right very pleased

      Had a little hardware issue at first but focus attack made it right ! I loved the customer service and the product works flawlessly. This board is awesome! on Mar 15th 2018

    6. Quality

      This PCB is very well manufactured. Worked flawlessly on PC and Switch. Used it in my old Mad Cats PS3 Tournament S fightstick. Don't hestitate on this one.

      Kudos to for lighting fast delivery.

    7. Great Product

      Works flawlessly with whatever console I hook it up too (those supported of course). Only caveat I have is that it does not turn on the console with the Home button. This was needed for my cabinet so I didn't always have to go under turn on the PS4. on Nov 8th 2017

    8. The Perfect Product

      Couldn't have asked for a better / user-friendly solution to building a fightstick for all platforms. FA makes it super easy too with the add-on purchases so you don't have to scour the site looking for everything you need. Installation was a breeze, and performance has been perfect. A must-buy for anyone looking to build a complete solution stick. on Nov 3rd 2017

    9. Easy to install. Works great!

      I used this board in my Makestick and it works great!
      I don't feel any lag, and the installation was very easy.

    10. The best choice for diving in...

      I have never customized a stick before and wanted something that didn't require soldering or intense rewiring, and boy does this deliver. The screw heads are exactly wanted I wanted for connecting and have you seen how many systems this thing works? Like holy balls that's awesome. Best bang for your buck no matter what. on May 26th 2017
