That’s pretty damn cheap, hopefully the buttons aren’t soldered on to the pcb (especially considering the slightly odd button layout).

Pity free shipping doesn’t apply to Australia.


#3

Yikes! Do not want.


#4

Watch the video on that site. Holy shit that thing is smaller than I thought. There’s no way you’d be able to change ANYTHING in that stick. It’s honestly as big as a PS3 controller.

Wow this thing makes Mayflash look like professional gamer choice :smiley:


#6

Here’s hoping the PCB is common ground. That’s the only way I could see this being useful to the community.


#7

airplane stick anyone? :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

Can you even put in a microswitch joystick for that price?

And why am I so tempted to find out? :bgrin:


#9

I’m calling it. “Stick” is actually a lever attached to a d-pad.


#10

Hell I’ll use this thing just for the PCB. for 16 bucks you can’t go wrong for a soldering job like that.


#11

Hopefully one of you guys can post a pic of the PCB for the rest of us :slight_smile:


#12

At $16 this could potentially be the cheapest ps3 padhack available. I might gamble on it if it’s still available by Wednesday.


#13

Also, if someone grabs this, can you test it on the PC? Thanks!

That thing looks exactly like the “Dreamgear Arcade Fighter Micro”:
