Alright i got a little rant to do. I owned 3 or 4, honestly i lost count, of the classic MadCatz Fightpads with USB (like this one). They all only lasted a couple of months until the USB stick stopped working for no apparent reason. What do you do if this 50 cent component stops working? Of course you buy a complete new pad (if you happen to find one for a reasonable price since their availability in the EU is so bad for some reason). So finally i’ve had enough and bought the cable one (the slightly smaller SFxTekken version) and of course I loved it! Same quality (the pads generally make a very solid impression) but without the wanky USB component and looking totally bad ass. I thought i’d be settled for life. But behold, today this piece of crap started malfunctioning, too! Everytime i press two certain buttons together they don’t stop signaling the pressed signal. Must be an electronical issue or whatever.
I mean what do you expect, MADCATZ? That i buy another one of your products now? Maybe give you 70 € for the new generation pad? Nah, i’m not mad… I’ve seen Hori has some decent pads, too.
