50 bucks less than the American counterparts. Uses Hori branded Hayabusa joystick and KURO buttons. Hayabusa joystick is said to be a bit tighter than Sanwa sticks, but just as responsive. Buttons are a similar deal. Bit tighter, but supposedly just as responsive and can supposedly last longer than Sanwa buttons.
Looking for a joystick for KI with a bit less of a punch in the wallet, this is something.
