Which one is better? HARP 3 SA or Mad Catz TE?


I was just wondering which one of these sticks are better? I have a pre-order on Buy.com for the Mad Catz TE stick, just don’t know when it will be available.

I have been using a PS2 stick with a PS2 to PS3 adapter, and at first it was working on SFIV, but now it won’t. The buttons and stick commands are all messed up. ( I am assuming it was due to a firmware update on the PS3, not sure though)

So, this is a two part question.

  1. Which stick is better?
    2.Will the HARP 3 SA be available stateside?

Also any suggestions on modding an old PS2 stick to work with the PS3?

The stick is ASCII Stick FT2, I got it while I was station in Japan.
The adapter (that won’t work right anymore) is a "Universal PS2 to PS3 Controller Adapter.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions, it’s been a while since I have been to the land of SF, but looking forward to getting back into it, just have to find a good stick.


I understand you’re new, I am too…
