With $140 bucks. How should i handle getting a new stick?


#1

Ok so right now I’m sittin on this Tekken 6 hori which is so wack. It works but i need an upgrade. I’ve got 140 bucks. Now there are tons of choices for me. round 1 te, se (then mod), round 2 te, ssfiv te, hori sticks. So i was wondering what you guys think would be the most beneficial and would fit my budget. ALSO NOTE : I want to buy a memory card for my camera so I’d like to have 20 bucks leftover. So my real fightstick budget is 120. Now i don’t mind the labor of modding a stick, as a matter of fact if it were to come down to that I’d love to customize the art as well. I really don’t like the shape of an SE because it’s kind of small, perimeter wise. But keeping all of that in mind, with my $120 how should i approach getting a new stick?

i’d suggest hunting for those deals on the rd1 or rd2 TE’s for 100$ or less. you can get a used one for like 80


#3

You just missed out on the $100 TE’s on the gamesharkstore. Where where you with that $120 last week and the week of EVO? If you wait for a sale, the price on them goes to $100 periodically.

TEs are $100 if you look around


#5

Wow man, you just missed the Sale that ended seven minutes after your Post. :sad:


#6

Yes, I saw those deals, just today when it was too late. Trust, if I saw that ahead of time I would’ve been on that so quick. But what could I do for the time being? I really don’t want to use this Tekken stick any longer.

You’re in San Diego?

Better get a TE or Markman will hunt you down!


#8

lol wut?


#9

It’s okay, I won’t hunt you down.

I’m going to have another online sale next weekend.

When do we europeans get sales too? :slight_smile:


#11

I’m pretty sure someone was selling their TE for 80 shipped in the trading section. I don’t remember who it was though.


#12

Wouldn’t go for the used stuff. If Mark says there’s another sale, you’re going to get yourself a good deal! And you’ll have plenty left over to get some plexi and custom art ;D

jalenp69, pm sent.

You can easily find a TE for sub 100 dollars. Then use the rest for BlazBlue or, I dunno, a case of beer.


#15

I was gonna buy another Round 2 TE using the online super deal, but I ran into a $100 TE-S at the fry’s in san marcos. Sweet deal, though the box looks like it’s been tossed around =/


#16

BEER!

as for the rest if Markman will have another sale soon its $108 total with shipping to cali for a TE round 2 and takes bout 3 days from nevada if your willing to wait…
