At first this was a post about my thoughts on the sales price and weather it was worth buying or not for dual modding purposes, however the topic evolved into a general discussion thread about the stick, so i changed the title
I, just like a bunch of other people, had the perfect plan: buying the Madcatz TTT2 TE for the Wii U (only 50 dollars) and dual mod it for PS3/360
After having my credit cards denied at the Madcatz store, I got kinda frustated and decided that my new stick would be a custom, and started buying the stuff to build it.
However I’m not here to talk about my experience, as many people might not be willing to spend a lot of money in a good custom stick (that’s why they were going with this stick to begin with), my case was different because my idea was literally buying it to mod the hell out of it just for fun, so building a custom sounded even better for me…
First, let’s check the prices:
50 dollars for the wii u stick
35 dollars for an MC Cthulhu/30ish dollars for a pad/general PCB price
10 dollars MIN for wiring and cables (even more if you want sleeving and other pretty things)
10 dollars ± for shipping (11 in my case, to MD)
That alone adds up to the price of at least 90 dollars
After all that, you have all the work, soldering, wiring, etc… that might be hard for unexperienced people
So I gotta ask: is it really worth it?
I will answer this myself: It depends.
I would recommend getting the wii u stick on these cases:
Your main game is Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and the Wii U is your practice console (lol)
You just want to have fun modding stuff, then go for it
You legitimately want a fightstick for the wii u to play virtual console games
You have money and don’t know where to spend it (you can give it to me though)
Honestly, that’s all I got.
Now if your intentions are:
Play on the Xbox 360/Play on the PS3
Play on PC
Have a good stick for your games
And pretty much everything not listed on the previous list
Why not just get an Madcatz Fightstick pro?
It’s currently 99 dollars on Amazon
It’s still a madcatz stick, with sanwa parts
It will work on PC and Console of choice out of the box
Free 2 days shipping for those that have prime (I’m pretty sure most people have it)
It will save you some rage and headache of modding (in case you’re someone that rages lol)
Well guys, that’s it. I just decided to talk a little about what I think from what I’ve seen on the last few days
Tell me what you think, and I may even change my mind
I like good discussions
