#1

did hori make a non anniversary/collectors edition of the tekken 5 stick…cause i bought one jap hori tekken 5 stick and its nathing like the ones i seen everywhere else i can’t find anything about it on the web

its has only 6…it says hori on the box but not on the stick itself…it only says namco limited and playstation on it with the p logo…the box and artwork are nice tho

Hello, im the autor of the herzeleyd blogs, and that hori that you are talking is a real hori.
You can read hori below the picture, here a new photo for all.

a greeting

One more thing. The different prices of some horis, is for the components, not the name of the stick. Hori makes sticks with professional components and without it.
That stick has not professional components, maybe buttons but the stick isnt it.

Sorry for my english. I only want to explain the different. Because one hori can work fine and the other one can work poor. The diferent is the price :slight_smile: nothing more. Higher price, better components, and less price poor components.
I have anotherone, with sanwa components and personal (not hiri), but costs goes to 150 ? or more.

Looks like someone just repackaged the Hori Tekken 4 stick.


#19

They’ve been using that case design for ages.

^Werd.

The older stuff was of slightly higher quality (top panel being made of metal instead of plastic).

They’re all still mediocre for my big hands, hence I sold sold’em.
