I already own the first generation MadCatz SF4 TE, and I decided I wanted another stick.

I don't play SF4 anymore but I am very much into BlazBlue, and I've not surprisingly ordered Continuum Shift already. This stick is pretty much exactly as the 1st gen TE was when I bought it, the Sanwa pushbuttons and Sanwa JLF stick are as responsive as ever. I personally love the artwork, blue bezel and full piano black sides.

The stick has very clearly been made with Super Street Fighter 4's TE S adjustments in mind, as the Lock key does indeed lock the Start/Select buttons as well, although it keeps the sides unlike the TE S (many would prefer this though, since the TE S's lack of sides can irritate your wrist).

As for the 50 USD price premium over the standard 150 USD SF4 sticks, I believe this is justified because you are paying for a limited run stick. The box it comes in isn't as well-crafted as the SF4 TE box, but the artwork on it and the stick is just fantastic and the 'Limited Run' print just makes it even more special. I think one of the coolest additions is the stick number given on the bottom of the stick, which is given in ####/1500 format. The fact that you can identify which of the 1500 sticks made on each platform you have is a really cool addition.

My final thoughts are -- incredible stick, as expected from the MadCatz TE line, and combines the best parts of the TE and TE S in one with great artwork (stick and case) and paint job. For any limited run collector's, the 50 USD premium should be completely fine. Personally I had to also pay import fees to Canada, and I still think it was worth it since I am a huge BlazBlue fan and I also like collecting limited editions. Too bad there is no North American Continuum Shift LE, that would be the perfect complement to this stick.

I ordered this on amazon and got it in the same week. The packaging and everything was great. Completely satisfied with that.

It's newer than the round 2 TE so it should have the latest PCB inside as in a better one than the original TE. plus it's cheaper than the other TE sticks so it is a ficken amazing deal. I think the art looks great and I'm planning on making my own plexi glass cover for it anyways. The button layout is supposedly different than the other TE sticks but I customize my controls anyways so that is not really a problem.

But i did have some issues with the stick.

First the bad:
I received my stick with the R2 button (bottom row 3rd button) not working. I've read in another review here that someone got a madcatz TE stick with one of the buttons i thought maybe the same issue was happening. I decided to go ahead and void the warranty and open it up. To my dismay everything was connected properly. However the button felt loose from the bottom. After messing around with it for some time, the button base clicked and i thought i broke it :(. I then pressed the button and it snapped back into place and it started working just fine. In trying to put the thing back together, i discovered the source of the problem. The bundle of wires is zip tied and sits right under the buttons. It happened to press up against the button in question which was what was causing the problem. I had to cut the zip tie to close it back up without affecting the buttons.

Now on to the actual stick:
It's great like everyone says. If you're like me and this is you're first arcade stick, it takes some time to get used. Not just the layout but rather the sensitivity of the buttons.

This is my first time owning an arcade stick. I have been an avid fan of fighting games and have always loved to play these at the arcades. I was always more familiar with the controller because I've always owned fighters like Tekken, Marvel Vs. Capcom, Street Fighter, etc. After playing on this stick for a few hours, I must admit that it is the best experience I have had with any. Now I've never owned a stick at home, but from what I've played at various arcades all across the US, this is by far the most comfortable stick I have ever played on. The buttons are all very evenly spaced so it doesn't feel like the buttons are out of reach and the feel of the buttons and joystick are superb. I especially like the little clicking function it has on the 8 way directional joystick because this is a square gate restrictor and sometimes people will have problems doing a dragon punch or similar moves. It also feels very comfortable on the lap, not too heavy and doesn't leave a print. If you want to use it on a table though, it has rubber stoppers so it won't leave an imprint as well. The greatest asset, though (for a fighting stick anyway), is the fact that there is absolutely no input lag. This characteristic is paramount for anyone considering an arcade stick because precision is very key in fighting games. One wrong move and you will usually be punished. Finally, there is a small hatch for the usb wire to go into, meaning that this is a wired arcade stick, which is great because you can bring it to tournaments without fear. I would recommend this one to anyone who is considering buying an arcade stick. I used to think that Madcatz did not know how to make a good product because my friend got a wireless controller from them and it died immediately after he bought it, but this was a few years ago.Read more ›
