i know its all preference, but after the cheap stick i bought crapped out on me, ive decided to spend big on a stick. i wanted to buy the Real Arcade Pro VX SA cos its by Hori and its relatively cheap when compared to the others. but i read some reviews on it, so i wanted to ask u guys a few things. 1st here are some reviews:
Over all this stick is only okay. The size and styling is nice, but it’s really really light, which is actually a problem if you want stability. It is entirely made of plastic… it just doesn’t feel right. It seems solid enough for continued play, but in my opinion it doesn’t give a real vewlix feel due to the material.
and another review
A 2nd thing that keeps this from getting a perfect 5 stars is the missing selector switch that lets you change the stick to act as the left analog stick, right analog stick, or digital d-pad from the standard 360 controller. Almost every place selling this stick lists that as a selling point, and indeed if you look at the PS3 version, you can clearly see it on there as well, and it’s actually shipped that way. This can make the stick less than compatible for 360 and Xbox Live Arcade games that only use the left analog and not the d-pad. This stick solely emulates the 360 controller’s d-pad and nothing more. Not really a big deal for me as I use it mostly with the PC though, just be aware that the switch that is clearly visible in the pictures (the one with the hand overlaid on the controller) is not present on this version, and only the PS3 edition.
i mean, i dont doubt it isnt quality, but if im spending big, am i better off going for a stick with the best material and features? or are these reviews baseless? again i am not on a budget, i just want whats best in terms of build, options and performance. can u guys just tell me if im better off going for a madcatz TE, or if what those reviews are stating are false, like about the light weight and non viewlix feel. thanks
