Beginner fightsticks for a PS3/PC user


#1

I’ve been a fan of fighting games for some time now but just recently started looking to get my own fightstick.
up until now I’ve been using controllers but it’s just not cutting it for me these days and I want to move to a stick.

It’s important to me that I can use a stick both on PS3 and PC however I haven’t been able to find much information on what stick might be good for both of these. I had been looking into mad catz products but it always seems like the jury is out on whether or not they will work for both platforms, the official statement says that it should be fine on “PC’s that do not make use of a NVIDIA chipset” but my PC is an acer laptop with an NVIDIA 730m so I don’t really know what my options are for a quality stick on both platforms.
I’m looking for something that will last me a long time

What’s you’re price range?

Any madcatz ps3 stick newer than the round 2 TE should work. If I remember right that’s the point they switched the usb controller from uhci to ohci, meaning they work on any pc.

He could get one of Jasenscustoms’ metal sticks, full sanwa and a zd encoder if it’s in his price range

One of the more reliable PCBs out there on the market.
