Any comments / advice / tips would be greatly appreciated!
- Are arcade sticks region free?
-I hear a great many things about Asian manufacturers, but some of the sticks I’ve been recommended can’t be found from your typical online US retailers. So I was turned onto play-asia. There, I noticed that the sticks were listed as “Japan” or “Asia”. I know region is important for digital media due to change in formats and standards, but does this also apply for controllers / arcade sticks / accessories?
- What stick would you recommend to someone like myself (360)?
-So far the big name I’ve heard thrown around is Hori. I will say that I am not looking for a top of the line stick. More middle of the road, solid stick that isn’t the greatest but you can’t really go wrong with. Currently, the stick that holds my eye is the Dream Stick since it is what it is: A frankensteined 360 controller connected to arcade parts in wooden housing. I dig how it looks and how easy it is to upgrade.
- Are the Qanba sticks reliable and well made?
-Just today I read something about the Qanba Q4, and how it’s 360 and PS3 compatible straight out of the box. Considering I own both a 360 and PS3, and my friends vary in terms of preferred console, this would be an awesome addition to a solid stick. This is more of an addendum to my second question, but I’d be grateful for any feedback on their previous sticks as the reviews aren’t easy to come by.
And that’s what I’m wondering. If you made it to this point, thanks for reading and I look forward to reading your responses.
