I’ve been looking around shops in my area for arcade sticks for the PC, but none of them had any. At most, they had sticks for the PS3/360.
Finally I came across a store that had a Madcatz TE SF4 fight stick for the 360 (not the SSF4 one), and from what I’ve read so far, it’s a good, high quality stick. Since good sticks are hard to come by where I’m living, I’m probably gonna go ahead and get the stick. Only problem is, I’m getting a stick solely to play 3rd strike (GGPO) and SF4 on the PC (and possibly SSF4 if it ever comes out for the PC) and I’ve got to make sure that the stick works on my machine, or I’d be wasting a load of money on something I won’t ever be able to use (I doubt I’ll ever get a 360).
I did some research and from what I’ve read the 360 version does work well on the PC, although I did find that some people were having problems with getting the PS3 stick to work. So basically, I’m just hoping to get some sort of confirmation from the people here on whether it would be safe for me to get the stick solely for use on the PC.
I’m running a 32-bit Vista laptop, if that helps.
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
