I’ve always used a 360 pad (analog stick) to play SF and after recently buying Arcade Edition, I’ve started going against such skilled players online and when I imagine their setup, they’d have the crazy 180 quid joysticks.
I’ve never used a joystick in my life and I feel that before investing such a crazy sum of money for a controller I’d have to ask some questions about it.
My first and probably biggest quesion is, whats the durabilty on a joystick? I don’t want to buy a joystick then after a few months of using it, the stick to become ‘wobbly’ or the buttons to get jammed.
Secondly, what stick should I go for? I’ll be honest the thought of shelling out 180 for controller I’d only use for SF4 (SFxT soon) seems a little crazy to me, but I can’t bash it till I’ve tried it.
Lastly, this is kind of similar to my first question but warranty… I’m guessing the standard warranty for a high end stick will be just a year? I mean if it was more than a year I’d buy one instantly then I could at least feel some comfort if it was to break or become faulty.
