Has anyone tried this fightstick?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/320583671882 if so any thoughts on it?

Get a cross platform.

What do you mean?

He probably means a fightstick that works on a PS3 and 360. First time I’ve heard of one, but it’s what I’m deducing from his post.

No I haven’t, but it looks terrible. Especially the layout of the buttons to the stick and it most likely uses knockoff buttons and stick. The general rule of thumb is that any fightstick that costs less than $50 new isn’t worth buying.

Heh, probably not a good idea to take design ques from an XBOX 1 console.

Please go in thinking with the mantra “you get what you pay for”

Here’s a link down to tech talk’s big thread, buyer’s guide:

That has got to be the ugliest and most non-ergonomic design I’ve seen for an arcade stick in a long time.

Better off buying a WWE brawl stick for like $40-50 bones and modding it out. That thing looks horrendous.

I like how it’s called


Hooooly shit this stick wins all sticks of every year of all years.
This is probably better suited to the Tech forum.

I like everything about your post, including how you called it an ARCADE STICK!

just buy a ps2 controller with a usb converter best pad for playing fighters imo

Getting into the fighting genre in this gen(especially on a 360 is expensive) no way people can buy those expensive sticks then buy the games,the ps3 players have more options when it comes to sticks but us 360 owners are stuck with crappy pads or buying expensive fightsticks.I hope microsoft really looks into making there controllers more fighting games freindly on there next console.

Agreed, the Xbox 360 controllers do suck for fighting games. The ps3 dual shock 3 controllers are way better out of the box for fighting game players who use pad. On the stick front there is just about as many options for Xbox 360 players as there is for ps3 players with Matcatz,Hori and Eightarc/Qanba offering just about the same number of fightsticks for either console. On the price point issue it is possible to buy used good quality Madcatz TE sticks for the 360 for 70-90 dollars now. Some Madcatz SE/Brawl sticks for the 360 with all the parts changed out to sanwa parts on the used market can be had for less than that if you wait and look for a deal.

PS3 players are playing on the exact same expensive arcade sticks as XBox 360 players.

If you go to places like amazon they number of ps3 budget fightsticks are far greater the xbox,

The only budget fightstick on amazon for the 360 is that brawlstick on there which 41 bucks by third party seller.,you then have to buy more parts to make it playable.

While sure, the brawlstick needs modding to bring in up to arcade standard, it’s much better out of the box than any of those other sticks you linked (none of which are fightsticks, btw). Not only are they all basically garbage, but if you want to mod them to arcade standard they require significantly more work than a brawlstick.

Out of all of these, only two are really worth anything because they’re easily modable (Mayflash and Playtech), the rest are flat out trash unless you want to spend time and money modifying them. You want a stick, pony up the $100+ for a real stick with decent parts or get a budget MadCatz that you can easily upgrade with nothing but a Phillips in less than an hour.


(unless its a budget TE or HORI being clucked)

my advice to you is do not buy a cheap stick because its cheap and looks good. I made that mistake when i was new and went through hell. There is that white hori stick with Sanwa parts that is fairly priced, i forgot the name. I agree a cross platform will be the best choice though
