After doing a lot of research in the last 3 weeks, it seems like most sticks for the 360 crap out within a few months or at least have a high chance of crapping out within a few months, mostly with dead pcbs.
I have a hori EX2 that’s not even out of the box yet sitting on my desk but I feel like I should sell/return it after reading threads like this http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=177864 . My friend’s EX2’s B button died the second day he had his as well, which testifies about the crappiness of the EX2 even more. The average life span seems to be about 2 months on these
And now from reading the SE defect thread I’m seeing a lot of people’s buttons stop registering, and even the TEs seem to have weak pcbs http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=184068 Maybe it’s just because they’re made by madcatz, but does this exhaust my buying options if I want a 360 compatible stick that has a good chance of lasting a couple of years?
I’m not really in the market for a price-gouged HRAP EX btw. This would’ve been my first stick so I wanted a good experience but am I just better off buying a crappy madcatz fightpad at this point?
