I am trying my darnedest to figure out my best quality and cost effective solution.
I am a long time pad player and it’s finally time to up my game to a real stick. I know there are all sorts of custom stick builders out there offering up various things, but here’s the skinny.
I want to have something that will work for both my PS2 and my Xbox 360. With Super Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix coming out this fall, I am pretty sure I’ll be logging a lot of hours on Xbox Live Arcade.
The problem is that there’s no essential titles available on the 360. There is no native ports, and the software based emulation leaves a lot to be desired on the titles that it does support.
SO, PS2 is obviously the other console I need support for.
I have a few options as I see it.
XFPS 360 (Pro/Non-pro). This is an $80 adapter that supposedly will adapt PS2 controllers to the Xbox 360. I’ve done some searching on the forums and the information is ALL OVER the place on this device. Some say it has lag, others say it has no lag. Some say it supports HRAP2, others say it won’t. Some say it works with the SF:AC, others say no it won’t. It’s not only an $80 gamble, because if it doesn’t work, I am left with a PS2 based stick that won’t work on my 360.
2 Controllers. One for 360, one for PS2. Double the cost? Not fun.
A custom setup with BOTH ports available. The question is, do such products exist, or do custom stick makers do this type of thing (2 seperate PCBs for 1 stick?)
I see there is a Hori Virtua Fighter edition EX2 stick for 360. It’s only $60, but it has cheap rip-off components that are soldered directly to the PCB, so modding is damn near impossible for an amatuer like myself.
Has anything quality been announced for the Xbox 360? Someone help me fill this void in my life :lovin:
