List some Xbox 360 Arcade Sticks
« on: May 29, 2009, 11:05:11 pm »
What are some good starting off joysticks for SC4? This doesn't mean I wanna go off and drop $100 dollars on one I just want a starting off one and if I really get into it I'll upgrade. I don't want a piece of crap either tho... so uh yea.. help. :P I just wanna try one out because I'm sure the buttons are easier to access on an arcade stick then a controller. I have a heck of a time trying to pull off some of the moves on my controller, lol.

If you could leave the name of the Arcade Stick and maybe the place or website I can pick one up at that would be AWESOMEEEE.

THANKS! ^_^

General rant on sticks - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,1677.msg18955.html#msg18955

The Hori white stick on 360 might be one of the few solutions out there I'd suggest.  After that, MAYBE mad catz SE if your gonna mod out the buttons lool.  Amazon and Ebay - but both have their issues - amazon selection, Ebay used and crazy people.


Geoff has a stick just sitting over at my house still (as well as a pad, copy of sc4, 360, and his gf's copy of GoW - I'm startin to feel bad here lol), he might lend that to you?  If he doesn't I can lend you mine after July.

The first one is a decent entry level stick, the second one has better parts in it and is better quality. As far as 360 sticks go for entry level, XA pretty much nailed it hori ex 2 or madcatz se if you plan on modding it in the future. Toys r us had a bunch of ex 2's not to long ago. And if you use wii alerts it should not be to hard to find a madcatz se. Since they are pretty much the same price, I would lean towards the SE just because of the quick disconnects so if you do decide you want a better stick the upgrade will be easier and less costly.

Use TRU's online locator to save yourself a drive as well. The ex2 is a good entry level stick.

Yea, the EX2 is literally what DarkWraith / the DOA sticks are I believe, etc - just not 'themed' - from what I know at least.

Once again - if your hanging out with Michael Jackson,etc - Geoff should be around, and could be asked.  But yea, Hori = approved.  HRAP = awesome, but it's also costing you.

Mad Catz - is a worse case senerio, sorry.  I mean if you find a TE stick that MIGHT be one thing, then again I think I've seen some mis-inputs from mine, and have read about buttons sticking too.  So SE and TE Mad Catz - great platforms for upgrades, but outta the box are becoming more and more questionable to me.  Hori = reliable.
