Not good for fighting games.
on July 16, 2010
I have the Street Fighter 4 TE and a HORI-RAP 3 arcade sticks and tried them both with the XCM Cross Battle adapter. I was able to get the joysticks to work right from the start and I was thrilled that I might be able to play SSFIV with some friends of mine that had a PS3. I went to training mode and started trying some combos. I was able to pull off basic moves just fine, but when I tried to link stuff together which required some faster joystick inputs (QCF or QCB in particular) the buttons wouldn't quite work. I opened up the input options in training mode to see what exactly was being inputted when I tried to do a fireball: I did a d,df,f+P on the joystick and it ended up inputting d,d,f,f+P. I tried it multiple times and anytime I tried to quickly pull off a fireball it wouldn't input the d/f. A simple combo like mk,fireball would almost never come out.
So, long story short the product works in that you can get your 360 controller/joystick to work on the PS3, but it is far from lag free input. Maybe it works well with shooting games but for a fighting game like SSFIV it is absolutely worthless. It makes a $125 joystick feel like you are using a $39 joystick.
