I’m getting an Arcade-in-a-box stick and I’m torn: I want to go with the wide layout, but my art only works with a close layout. The close layout is just like the arcade SFIV, the stick is very close to the buttons. I’m not at all bothered in the arcade, however at home I play for longer periods and the stick is in my lap, so I think the wide layout will be more comfortable.
How do you guys feel about wide versus close? Do you find there is much difference in regards to fatigue after playing non-stop for hours? Are there any issues performing with a close layout when the stick is on your lap?
