Hi guys, I was wondering where I can find an arcade stick for the xbox one with a 6 button layout where it is straight across, not rainbow across and one that has the long straight joystick, not the ball one?
And if there isn’t one like that out there, what sites should I look to order a custom one from? thanks.

Hello, see your new to arcade sticks so let me break it down.
Even though fighting games only require 6 buttons, the standards for arcade stick manufacturers is 8 buttons. And no manufactures makes a arcade stick where the buttons are in 2 parallel lines, all arcade stick layouts have a curved style. So with this in mind the only xbox one arcade sticks are the Razer Atrox, and the Killer Instinct Stick. But they there both fairly expensive (200$ or more.)
And you can’t buy custom sticks from retailers, your meant to buy a stock stick and customize it yourself (which is really easy.) So if a arcade stick comes with a ball top you can just change it to a bat top(the long straight one).
There are a few vids on youtube if you search on how to go about assembling a stick. As far as making one from scratch, well make a box…
It might be easier to just get a custom from foehammer.
You will need to contact doug or shep @ http://foehammershop.com/ so you can have them custom build for what you want though. They are awesome folks and do a great job. They do XBONE sticks as well.
I usually source all my cases from them but they do full builds first and foremost. You can see a lot of their work at the site or https://www.facebook.com/FoeHammerCustomJoysticks
Cost wise you are looking at (ballpark number here) at least $300 for a custom depending on what you want to put into it. (xbone aint cheap)
I have built sticks that parts alone have tipped the 600 mark… ouch… lol
Since you are looking for straight six… you could go with an x-arcade solo for the case since it is just $50 (JUST FOR THE CASE, THE PARTS ARE HORRIBLE). But you will need to figure out how to padhack/use a crossbone for the PCB.
^^^ what did you put into a stick where the parts cost $600? Gold? I have a titanium hollow shaft, optical pcb, custom ball top, PAS clear OBS plunger tops, all LED Panzer wide body that didn’t come anywhere near that. Stick and buttons shouldn’t top $85 for all Sanwa, a Crossbone with the works from PAS or Jasenscustoms ~$50. An XBONE PCB ~$50. A Panzer ~$100. $300 is about right.
Actually… yes… real gold leaf was used in this one lol and the stuff inside/outside adorning it wasnt cheap… this was a gift for @Kuya_Joe … fellow Marine, amazing friend and all around the coolest guy I know. Check Out My New Arcade Stick! (No Image Quoting)
and these are B15 cases… expensive builds but beautiful…
LOL!!! Nice, I was joking, but I must have secretly been channeling my inner Nostradamus. Hardly fair to use that as an example of a potential build for a noob. I’m currently playing around with using an Ikea shelf (23" wide, white melamine, $4) and a crap ton of pine bed slats ($9) to build a cheap enclosure. I think all told, including paint and incidental costs, it shouldn’t go over $30 for a wide body. Not sure if OP has any wood working skills.
Nope they don’t, the last mas sticks were sold about a year ago and they never got into messing with Xbox one/ps4 pcb’s. Your best bet if you want a mas stick with Xbox one compatibly is to find a old mas stick that someone is selling and have a modder (like Gummo etc.) change out the pcb and wiring to a Xbox one padhack. It would also be a good time to change the joystick to a iL competition and change the buttons to iL convex or concave buttons with the 75g cherry microswitch option. Both the joystick and the buttons are available from paradise arcade. With that setup you will have what you are looking for.
hey bobo thanks for that, that was exactly what I wanted, I posted on ebay and literally there was some guy that posted at 3 seconds left to outbid me, how depressing lol, I don’t think ill find another stick like that and I don’t like the other sticks. If anybody has that stick for sale, please let me know.
