Hi,

I’m new here. i’m looking for an arcade stick for the 360. i’m pretty new to the whole arcade stick scene, so i don’t know too much about them. does anyone know if this one is any good?

looks good to me. Might wanna buy it now soon though.


#3

Looks nice, I say BIN it.

The menu buttons seem pretty close to the regular buttons, fairly good chance of hitting them during play, but not a big deal if you don’t play in tournaments or anything.

Thanks for the input.

i have an 8% off coupon on ebay so that’ll be nice to be able to use.

i don’t do tournaments so that won’t be an issue for me.

looks weird.


#13

That looks like one of those stiiyg sticks.


#14

The far left buttons look way too low IMO. Maybe its with the twist on the bottom one as well, meaning it would be difficult to use the straight layout without knocking it. Bit of a weird layout. Its a stick none the less, but not one I think I would vouch for. Not much info there either to be honest.

Viewlix is originally 7 buttons, it would help if you had some clue what you’re talking about.

They added the eighth button specifically for the SE/TE controllers, but the original Taito Viewlix cabinets come with two rows of 3 buttons and then a fourth button at the end of the ‘punch’ row that you’d have to hook up for things like KoF and Neo Geo games.

These sticks have already been mentioned in this post here: http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=183435. Other than the wonky button layout, they supposedly work pretty well.
