5.0 out of 5 stars Great for PC April 4, 2014

Great stick, I’m currently using it to play SSFIV AE on the PC.

At first this stick was incompatible with my PC, as I have windows 7 x64. The RAP.NX driver was installed but windows said it failed. As a result, the stick initially didn’t work with my PC. You have to:

  1. Download and install xbox 360 accessories drivers from microsoft.
  2. Go to device manager, select RAP.NX and click update driver.
  3. Select driver manually from the list from my PC.
  4. Choose the Microsoft controller class and choose the xbox 360 controller 2009 version (it tells you not compatible but do it anyways)

The stick should now work, you’re simply overriding the bad driver initially installed with the working Microsoft gamepad one.

Buttons are top-notch and have good sensitivity.

Xbox 360 licensed sticks are usually compatible with PCs. Not guaranteed, though…

I purchased a fighting edge x360 recently and it was plug & play. Don’t see why vx sa would be much different

I bought it too! I read several people got it working with forcing a driver. Should be okay with a bit of fiddling.
