Joystick or dpad?


#1

so i usually get raped online at street fighter 4. I just rented it and i play with ibuki. it seems slower then the 2d games but i think its chill. But I play with the joystick and was wondering if the dpad is any better?? or it just doesnt matter…? just wondering cuz i wanna kick sum ass in this game! haha but seriously though add me on xbox if you want

It doesn’t really matter. I prefer the arcade stick though, due to the fact that I don’t get blisters with an arcade stick…
You can get good with either controller, but you should try both the pad and the stick at some point to acquire a preference. Once you figure out your preference, you’re pretty much good to go.

Dpad on Xbox is notorious for being inaccurate, but use whatever works for you. Go into training mode for a bit and make sure you can do everything consistently with whatever input method you decide. Personally, I like the dpad better than the analog no matter what controller, unless I’m playing a grappler.

Joystick FTW. you’ll have to get past the learning curve, but it will be worth it. If there’s an arcade around you, you’ll be using a joystick.

I think the OP is referring to the analog stick on the 360 controller.

OP, when I play SF with a controller I use the analog stick. If you search youtube, you can find some video tutorials on modding the d-pad to improve it’s accuracy.

when i played with pad i used the dpad. i have an xbox and find the analogue stick awkward, especially with FADCs and ultra motions

I play with both depending on mood. Might as well know both since you never know where you’ll end up playing.
