For those of you that don’t know about it, the RoydsStick.EX is a specialized arcade stick that has swappable panel inserts.

It was originally made for PS2 but is now coming out for PS3 (which will probably work on PC as well).

I’m a proud owner of a PS2 RoydsStick.EX and am confident in giving it a decent ranking on my Retail Arcade Stick Ranking List.

Sounds like a pain in the ass to use!

Actually, I think I made this joke last time there was a thread for it.
Thanks for sharing though.


#3

What kind of parts does it use?


#4

this name cracks me up but how does it work… does it come with the swappable button panels or do you buy those separately?


#5

You have to buy the panels separately.

The stick is pretty tight compared to Hori’s… a lot of people might prefer this stick for shooters/2D fighters over Hori ones.


#6

for the price should be a good stick, but …


#7

I’d rather have a salaubi, For dat powerful game.


#8

They are not listed in any particular order… but as I said, it is ‘decent’…


#9

So what parts does this ‘decent’ stick use?


#10

From another thread…


#11

Do the swappable panel inserts slide in and out like 16 bit game cartridges? How does that work?

Word, and that human based design be the hotness.


#12

More than meets the eye…

it looks CHEAP. :confused:

I’d try it tho…


#13

ah got it :wgrin:


#14

Nothing you’ve ever heard of:shake:
You don’t get arcade grade parts from sticks like this. The real question is always, “How upgradeable is it?”.

I think it looks cool.


#15

This thing looks freaking loaded for making custom panel layouts and what-not. Shame though, the housing and the layout plates don’t seem large enough to add on two extra buttons. :sad:

Nevertheless, it’s awesome that this sort of thing was actually on a retail stick. It’s not even close to Shaft Agent’s custom joystick kits, but hey, I approve a retailer promoting customizing and modability like this.


#16

This is a good stick to mod, Paik said you had to dremel the holes I think though.

More info here…


So since the PS3 version is coming out soon… I revisited my PS2 one.

The stick feels real nice, I’m going to play with it more during winter vacation and give it a good run on HD Remix and other games.


#18

This stick looks really interesting.

Is there any word on how moddable the buttons and stick are?
