So I remember way back when the sticks were first released, I had a friend tell me that he heard the TE sticks actually don’t even use Sanwa parts, but Sanwa clones produced by Madcatz.
It’s not a terrible thing if it turned out to be true, because if no one told me I probably wouldn’t tell the difference at this very moment. However, it’s still a little disheartening because I thought when the TE stick was being hyped, one of the selling points was that it was going to use Sanwa parts.
In the end though no biggie, easy to change parts if they ever gave issue. But anyways, is this true? Can anyone show me proof/confirmation? I know I could probably open up my stick by now but I’m sure someone has already done so which would save me the time.
