Okay, today is the second time in a week I have been told by a retail store that they have had to ship all their FightSticks back to the manufacturer due to a defect. The first was a GameStop. Since no such thing has come up here on SRK, I chalked it up to typical GS misinformation. However, I just came back from a Fry’s where they actually refused to sell me sticks in-stock because they were going to be packed up and shipped back.
Both stores said the recall was due to “nonresponsive buttons because of the main board”. We’ve had several reports of buttons suddenly ceasing to work here on the forum, so now that I’ve gotten the same story in two places, it’s sounding pretty legit.
MarkMan, please tell us what you can. Is there a PCB issue?
