**February 2009(A): **Street Fighter 4 is released for Xbox 360 and PS3.
**February 2009(B): **Madcatz releases SE and TE joysticks to coincide with the games release. Supply<Demand.
**March 2009(A): **Akihabara and Lizard Lick get flooded with parts orders from fighting game enthusiasts who wish to build their own joysticks.
March 2009(B): Hori sees a sudden increase in sales.
**March 2009©: **Lizard Lick stops taking orders in order to catch up with the existing orders they already have. Lots of people get pissed and the Akihabara and Lizard Lick threads to from positive comments to people expressing frustration because they have to wait to get parts to build a custom stick. See February 2009(B).
Just figured I should create this thread in order to hear the opinions of those building custom joysticks who are getting impatient. This thread can be a place for individuals to vent rather than getting pissed at Akihabara and Lizard Lick and just ranting on and on in their threads. I’m sure everyone knew that the release of Street Fighter 4 would cause an immediate increase in demand for joysticks and pushbuttons. Plus I’m sure it didn’t take a nickels worth of free advice to know that the Madcatz sticks would be extremely scarce just like the 15th anniversary sticks were a few years ago. Feel free to speak your mind.
