I’m currently in the process of modding my PS2 Pelican Real Arcade stick with iL/Happ parts and using it to play SF4 and various PS2 games on my 60gb PS3. I’m very excited about giving this a shot but there was something I sort of wanted an opinion on (for those that would like to be vocal about theirs)
I currently have both a PS3 and 360 TE fighstick on pre-order due for arrival some time mid March. Of these two, I think that if I actually get them I might only keep one to mod to work on both consoles. Will this be particularly difficult to do? Which one should I keep in the event that they both arrive?
Secondly, I had the strange fortune of running into two of the SE fightsticks, one for 360 and one for PS3 at my local Best Buy. So now I find myself with 2 of the TE’s POSSIBLY coming and 2 of the SE’s. I still plan to keep my Pelican however. I basically bought everything on inpulse so I have no idea what to do with these things (short of selling them).
Is it worth modding Sanwa parts into the SE sticks instead of getting the TE sticks since they’re currently in my possession? Ideally, I at least want a stick that works for the 360 for playing certain XBLA arcade games and what exclusive fighters for the 360 exist (DOA4 is the only thing that comes to mind). But I would also love to have a second stick for my PS3 so that my friends won’t feel cheated when I destroy them. :wgrin:
Ideal would be keeping 2 sticks, one of which works on both consoles.
Thoughts? Opinions? I greatly appreciate any input you guys can give.
