FIghtstick Pro PS3 on PC Compatibility Issue


#1

I ordered a fightstick pro for PS3 for use with my laptop. After reading around a bit I discovered that there is a compatibility issue with certain nvidia chipsets. I didn’t order the xbox one because it’s out of stock. I couldn’t wait for it because there was a really nice sale.

I have an HP Pavilion DV6 with an Intel i5 (M480) processor, an HP 163c motherboard, and an AMD 6000 series GPU. My laptop has only USB 2.0 slots. None of these are nvidia products, but I am still scared. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? The return policy at Madcatz is a little draconian and if I open it to test it they might not take it back.

Regards.

EDIT: Also, are there similar issues with the PS3 version of the Hori Real Arcade Pro V3?

It will probably be fine, no sense in stressing over it now. Worst case, you could put another pcb in it.

I don’t really possess the skills or tools to do that :frowning:

There are solderless options that take very little skill and almost no tools. Regardless, it will most likely work out of the box.
