I do wonder, with all the hype around SFIV and all the attention given to the fight sticks (there was an actual side by side comparison in Game Informer - which isn’t…a…good magazine. That might not be fair. It’s not GameFan, how bout that.) - does anyone else think the game stores will soon be filling up with 2nd hand TEs edit and fightsticks?
Just with simple statistics, you get a lot of people doing something new not everyone will stick with it. I don’t think that fight sticks will become the new guitar controller where they have a rack of them in every single Gamestop. However, I do think that once the shine is off the package you’ll get a lot of people with a big ass controller that you can’t use for a lot of games (anything requiring two sticks or even analog stick. I was kinda disappointed that NHL 3 on 3 would not accept digital input).
I think that, but I’m often wrong.
