Looking for a good Xbox 360 Fighting Stick


Hey all I hope I’m in the right section.

I am looking for a couple of good fighting sticks for my 360. I just bought Super Street Fighter IV today and cannot wait till Marvel VS. Capcom 3. Basically looking for the best bang for the buck. The best performance sticks for the price. I know Hori is a very good name, but what about MadCatz or any other makers out there. I had a couple of Hori’s before back in the Sega Saturn days.

What would you guys recommend and where can I get these fighting sticks? I live in Canada. So far I can find the biggest selection on play-asia.

Looking forward to your recommendations,


for the 360 i’d get a cheap Hori EX Real Arcade Pro Fight Stick on ebay and swap for sanwa parts or the pro-ex se

the madcatz te, its good, make sure it has a warranty, sometimes the pcb’s go bad


thanks for the reply. are these the 8 buttons config? why sanwa parts, whats the difference? where can i get these parts?


hello cunucker!!


and here:


newegg.ca is good as well

for some reason 360 sticks seem run out faster

i’m sure more people will chime in



Because these are the parts used in Japanese arcade machines and are the same size (30mm) as in most commercial sticks. The fact that they’re built for the arcade means that they’re meant to take abuse. There’s also the fact that they tend to feel better than non arcade buttons.

As for where to get them. http://www.lizardlick.com

Or just get a TE since they come standard on that stick.


TE for Sanwa
HRAP EX SE for Seimitsu
Arcade in a Box for IL


sweet thanks


what about play-asia, anyone buy anything from there before? thoughts on what they bought. what about the brand Qanba some decent looking joysticks and seems decently priced as well, but not sure about quality.
