So, now for the real decision =P
Mad Catz SE €50 ~ $70
HRAP BlazBlue €70 ~ $100
Now there are some things I don't like about the Blazblue stick (=HRAP 3?):
- The case is blue
- It doesn't have the vewlix button layout but the japanese arcade layout
- It's harder to mod than the SE (not sure how much harder)
Now, I've read that the HRAP 3 is an overall better controller but estethics and comfort are important to me too.
So, is there a way to easily change to color of the case and I've read that the vewlix button layout is "better"overall and easier/more comfortable to use.
From what I've read the HRAP 3 is say... a tier above the SE. Is that true?
I'll probably put sanwa buttons and stick in the SE anyway so is it worth the extra 30 dollars?

I'm looking for help picking a stick. I'm just playing MvC3 and Mortal Kombat. I have a Hori Real Arcade Pro V3-SA. It's an okay stick but I'm wanting to try out the either the SSFIV stick or the MvC3 stick. I hear the SSFIV stick is good so that is what I'm looking at. I'm wondering how it handles? My main problem with this Hori stick is that the inputs feel too close together. I'm actually just looking for any good fighting stick suggestions. Nothing crazy that I have to mod myself but something that is good and reliable, that I can get in the store/online.

You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.-Mike_ZIf there's anything we do best, it's breaking games and then making everyone suffer with all the cheapness.-PersiaXO

I think it already is. The "What Stick Should I Buy" Thread is linked to this one.

The soda comment is an analogy for the different brands of arcade parts out there. If Sanwa is Coke, and Seimitsu is Pepsi, Crown would be RC Cola, that makes Happ Deer Park Spring Water. IL would be Evian or maybe Fiji Spring Water, LOL.

Ease of Mod: NA

I'm probably the only person insane enough to go get another Hori VLX even though I'd be better off with a Qanba Q4 due to it being multiplatform compatible. Unfortunately I had to sell my first one but there is something about it I couldn't find in any other fightstick. After I installed my 8-way gate into it it became the best stick ever to me. All I needed was that ps360 pcb and I was good to go. I'll get one again in the near future and I'll be working on my Metal Gear theme on it too.

No Need to wait for the PS360, there always the Kitty. The VLX version of the kitty is very easy to install, and it gives you all the systems the MC Cthulhu does.
It plugs into the existing PCB and connections, and the VLX Kitty is fully reversible.

I am also a pad warrior and I was wondering if there's any cross platform (360/PS3) pads that exist, or at least any tutorials in how to mod one to be cross platform. Google has failed me.

But it is a lot easier with Dualstrike SMD. I could do it!

Alright. I'll just ask here, even though I probably won't like the answer. I really want a TE(non-s, I like the original look better), but as things stand I am fairly tight for cash. Should I wait it out and buy the TE I want, or should I put my skills to the test and build a custom stick? (Which I may find to like more)
Fact is, I play on Sanwa buttons quite frequently, and I want to get a stick to use on the go(I play on a mame cabinet running various console emu's for the arcade feel). If anyone knows of a place where I can find a modable stick for a fairly cheap price(goodwill?) let me know. I am not afraid to do some soldering, so I can easily hack a xbox pad. Heck, I even have a PS3 controller with dead analog sticks, so I could go either way. A sanwa button and joystick set is $53(8 button, and a JLF) and then the pad to hack is another $25 for xbox. The TE can be found for around $120, and I get a lot of extra features with it(turbo and such), so which one is the smarter choice for a semi-beginner?

I've done literally zero research into this, but is it possible that SE stands for Seimitsu and SA stands for Sanwa, instead of Special Edition and Special Addition? I could see a case of Engrish in this situation, but this makes more sense to me.

No, the SA stands for Special Addition, which has SAnwa parts.
No, the SE stands for Special Edition, which has SEimitsu parts.
There is a play on letters there.
But SA does not stand for SAnwa, it means Special Addition.
But SE does not stand for SEimitsu, it means Special Edition.

You can make sure what the SA and SE stands for, on the Hori website itself:
SA Example: http://www.hori.jp/products/ps3/controller/realarc_pro3_sa/
