Two things. I’m considering getting a custom made stick. I don’t want to spend more than $250.
As of now, I’m considering asking Hahano to make the stick. Are there any other recommendations for affordable stick makers?
Secondly, I’m not sure whether to go with a 6 or 8 button layout. I play SF4, Tekken, and BlazBlue. All of those are fine on 6 button machines. There aren’t any games that use 8 buttons, are there? Is there a reason to go with an 8 button arcade stick? If possible, I’d prefer to just go 6 button, since it allows more room for the graphic under (aesthetics are a big thing for me) and looks less clustered together. But if there’s a good reason for me to have an 8 button stick instead, then I’ll go with that.
