2 Mortal Kombat Panels (which do you prefer)


#1

Im going to mod my TE with a new panel in preperation for MK.

There is the custom one, vs the official madcatz.

It seems like the madcatz buttons are squished and a bit tilted, as can be seen here and here

Vs the custom panel:

Which looks more like a traditional MK3 style stick.

What’s with the difference, I thought madcatz would look more like the mk3 style? I think I may prefer it.


#2

its more of an ergonomics thing,
its more straining to hit buttons in a straight layout than one in a slanted layout

e.g try playing SF on an astro city layout vs american straight layout


#3

I would go with the Madcatz panel. Looks more comfortable.

But then, I’ll be playing MK9 on the standard TE layout anyway.


#4

the Madcatz one.


#5

you can wait for the person to get the madcatz template of the MK panel then ask him to make it if it’s cheaper.


#6

I don’t like the MadCatz one, it isn’t the way the old MK arcade cabinets were setup. I think the slanted buttons looks stupid.


#7

I prefer old school, but if your not used it, you might be better off with the MadCatz.


#8

Have you seen the one coming out with MK9?

Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition for Xbox 360 | GameStop

I’m definitely gunna pick one up…most likely will pre order it…I don’t wanna miss out


#9

I have the MadCatz panel, picture here, and I can say from playing the MK9 Demo, it feels great to me. I can hit all the buttons easily with my hand in a comfortable position. I have zero complaints about it. I’ll also be getting the official Tournament Edition with the game, so when I get that I’ll make a comparison as to which layout feels the best to me.


#10

You better hurry, they are starting to sell out at many retailers.


#11

I’m hoping the lack of fighting game interest in my town will guarantee me one of them. I plan on pre-ordering one this weekend…it’s only five bucks to pre-order. But Darkar is right, in big cities and areas with better fighting game scenes these things are gunna go quick. They sure are pretty.
