I realize there are dozens of threads about these sticks but, I was hoping someone who has experiance with them could help me with my specific situation.
I’m looking to get my first joystick and I’m looking at the madcatz because I feel the cost/quality/ease of moddability make these the best for a newbie.
Right now I’m really trying to decide between the TE (or the MvC2, it’s the same stick right?) or the SE. If I buy the SE I plan on upgrading to Sanwa parts but then it costs almost as much as the TE. The reason I would rather upgrade an SE for the same price is because I’m an expresive guy and I’d love to be able to customize my stick. If I buy the TE there is no reason for me to spend more money except to change the colors of the buttons which would be a waste of money.
So I ask: is a stock TE really that much better than a Sanwa modded SE? I realize the TE is a lot cooler and I would prefer to get that but it would limit my customization capabilities because I’m already spending my big chunk of cash on the controller alone.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated because it’s not like there is somewhere I can go to try out either stick before I purchase one.
Also, if it matters I’m playing on the ps3.
