Sorry to further bug people about the TE stick, but I’m strongly considering one at $100 and would just like to get some more feedback.
From what it sounds like, the stick is very durable (esp compared to lesser offerings). Should it last basically forever with moderate play? I’m a casual to frequent fighter player, depending on a lot of things, but if SSF4 ends up coming out on PC for example, I’d dive back in and get tons of use out of it. Otherwise it’d be more random to low usage on shoot-em-ups or emus or other 2d games (Also I’d get the 360 stick and only use it PC/at friends’ since I don’t currently own any current-gen console). Right now I’m using an old Saturn Virtua Stick (the US model) along with a converter, which seems to be somewhat derided by stick fanatics but it works pretty well for most purposes. And with this, I’d be able to have two very usable sticks for multiplayer.
What kind of costs would be involved to allow it to work on different or future systems, and how difficult would it be? Based on my current knowledge of controllers, it doesn’t seem too difficult to convert things to play on any consoles (except for the 360, which would be covered lol). But are there any typical price ranges on that?
From everything I’m reading, it sounds great and (surprisingly) actually a good deal at $100, which would seem super-pricey to most people. But I’d certainly want it to last, basically lifetime preferable.
