I’m looking to buy a fightstick for the Xbox 360 so I can become a beast at Super Street Fighter IV. I’m torn between two sticks: the newer model HRAP SA and the slightly older model HRAP SE. The SE comes with Seimitsu buttons and the SA comes with Sanwa. From what I’ve heard, Seimitsu buttons are a bit more responsive and clicky, which sounds like a plus to me. The SE is a bit heavier, which doesn’t seem like a problem. The SA is more expensive, I can’t find it anywhere for under the retail price, so I’m currently leaning towards the SE, which I can get for $100 on ebay.
So, what should I do?
Another option is buying the Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition Fightstick Round 1 (for my wallet’s sake). Then I can buy a steering wheel too and murk kids in Forza.
HRAP VX SA (Sanwa): Real Arcade Pro.VX SA
HRAP EX SE (Seimitsu): Real Arcade Pro. EXSE
Please comment if you have anything good or bad to say about either stick. Many thanks.
