Looking into buying a stick. Which one should I get?


#1

I was looking at some of the available sticks on amazon and noticed that xbox sticks were a lot harder to find than ps3 sticks for some reason and expensive as well. I’d like to spend less than $100 on a stick just to get started and saw the hori fighting stick vx for around $70. However, I’m a bit confused as to how it works with only 6 buttons. Doesn’t street fighter have 8 buttons in total?

Those extra buttons that aren’t on the vx is all punches and all kicks, but pressing all the punches/kicks simultaneously does the same thing as those buttons, so you don’t really need them. I got a hori v3 as my first stick and I never had a problem with hitting the punches/kicks simultaneously.
