I?m gearing up for some offline Xbox casuals with SSF4 and the forthcoming MvC3, but I?m in need of another stick and don?t know which to go for. I already have a TE-S but I?ve found that the surface area is a little too small for my lap and would like to get a bigger stick ? although the Hori Premium VLX is out of my price range! I was leaning towards the Hori Ex as it at least has a different layout to my TE-S (never tried the arching button layout) and I can pick one up for £79.99 from Amazon; I?m based in London. Problem is, it got some less than favourable reviews regarding its button quality and I don?t want to have to switch the buttons with my TE-S. The Round 2 Madcatz TE stick is a little more expensive but I have it on good authority that this is a quality stick. Can anyone shed some light on the apparent button issues regarding the Hori Ex or has anyone got both and have a preference?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
