Been a fighting game fan a long time, but using a pad. Bought a Hori Fighting Stick 3 about 8 months ago, and have been using it in Soul Calibur 4 and now Marvel vs Capcom 2, loved it, combos are a breeze nowadays. After some heavy usage, my stick is starting to show some wear....namely a loose joystick. I feel I've come to the point where it is time to step up my game, so I'm looking to get a new stick. I want to get the best of the best, and from reading around, it seems that I should either be getting a Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 or a Madcatz SFIV Tournament Edition stick. My question is, which is better? Please list REASONS why one is better than the other. Also, if anybody has a place that has them on sale(new please, no used), give me a link please. :bgrin: I'm playing it on a PS3, BTW. Thanks in advance y'all!
