X-Arcade?


#1

I want to ask a question about x-arcade in this section because I want to know if X-arcade is a good arcade stick compared to the real arcade of Marvel vs Capcom 2 (US version). I want to know if it is almost a like? does it even compare to the real arcade of Marvel vs Capcom 2(US version)? If I buy the X-arcade, I would only use it play Marvel vs Capcom 2(US Version) on my PS2, would this be a great arcade stick?

Forget the X-Arcade! It ‘looks’ good from pics, but it is not, and there are far superior options you could get instead for about the same price.

Like the SFAC w/Happ parts.

Or the MAS:

almost anything will be better than an x-arcade.


#4

can somebody please tell me what’s so bad about the x-arcade, please do tell in detail because just saying it is bad really isn’t helpful


#5

shitty parts. Don’t buy it.


#6

Stock parts are said to be really crappy. It is supposed to be easy to swap out with Real Happ stuff however.

Signal Lag: For PC games It is supposed to be ok, but for consoles with the adapters, there is signal lag time.

For the same price as the X-Arcade, you could buy something superior to it with all the bells/whistles inside, like the MAS.


#7

Yeah don’t take a fighting game forums word for it.

It’s shit. Shitty parts, shitty feel, cheap construction, a damn pelican would be better.

You are going to want something with happ parts in it, or even the SF:AC stick would be better than the x-arcade.

Saying it’s a bad stick IS helpful, just not as helpful as you wanted it to be. Tough.

No need to be rude and get on your high-horse just because the guy wants real details beyond, “that stick sucks”. You are not helping with that attitude.

Take your PMS meds, and chill dude :looney:

Wow, the Super Pro Stick looks pretty awesome. I am now looking forward to buy that one but I don’t know how to order from their website because there is no button that says “Add to Cart”

I’ve never ordered from them either, just look around a bit. Should be there somewhere, or you might have to contact them.

Or do a google search for MAS sticks available at other sites. Like this one:

#12

wow, it is even cheaper at estarland.com thank you so much True Grave I really appreciate your help.


#13

Well the shipping for it may or may not be pretty high.

I didn’t check :sweat:


#14

the shipping is cheap, its about $13 and thats including a tracking number


#15

Best American stick is MAS or any custom stick with Happs parts.
Best Japanese stick is HRAP with Sanwa buttons.


#16

Is this site legit?

That’s an unbelievable price.


#17

yes estarland is probably one of the best places to buy imports and things like that.

Got my swap magic set from them in 3 days and great customer service.


#18

Good thing I searched for this thread and found out that x-arcade sticks are crappy, I was going to buy one. I guess my best option would be an MAS Super Pro Stick with the competition joystick and buttons right?


#19

Your better off using Dreamcast controllers then playing with an X-Arcade stick. That’s how bad they are.


#20

Yes that would be a good buy, and investment in the long run. Competition stick and convex competition buttons are the way to go(competition buttons are all convex, Happ Ultimate would be the concave).
