5.0 out of 5 stars My first fightstick . . . August 20, 2011
By Michael
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first fightstick. Just unboxed it not too long ago and played some SSF4 AE. It was different feeling since I am still in the stage of transitioning from console controllers to a fightstick; however, I was able to pull off all the moves I wanted to with this stick.

Pros: This fightstick is made for the PS3 and the PC. My windows 7 was able to recognize the fightstick once it was plugged in. The buttons and joystick may not be of Sanwa descent, however, they are very responsive and have a quality feeling. Overall, the fightstick has some heft and will more than do for newcomers like me into the game fighting scene.

Cons: None really; I ordered overnight shipping and ONTRAC cut it a bit close on the delivery but I got it as promised.

Overall, its a good buy for the price and performance. $59.99+Shipping isn't bad for a quality fightstick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best quality to cost value August 30, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got my V3 yesterday and I played some SFIII:3S Online Edition for a few hours on it. Having been used to the USA Happ-style controls (baseball bat topped sticks, smaller buttons), the transition to a more Japanese layout on this Hori stick takes some getting used to. The cool thing is that the button diameter is larger than Happ, and the button height is nice and low so that you get good response time on your inputs.

Additionally, the Hori stick feels shorter and less stiff (that's what she said) than a Happ competition stick, although so far I kind of prefer the feel of the Happ over the Hori. The Hori stick also tracks on a square gate so you can feel the corners, as opposed to the Happ competition stick where it feels smooth in all directions (octo gate). I just think it'll take some getting used to.

If you're used to Japanese (Sanwa / Seimitsu) arcade layouts with the curved button layout, the closer proximity between buttons and stick, the 30mm diameter pushbuttons, and square-gated motion, then the Hori Fighting Stick V3 will make you feel at home. Additionally, if you're hardcore like the top players in SFIII:3S or any other fighting game you should choose to play, I've heard that this stick specifically is made to be moddable, where the button holes exactly fit Sanwa snap-on pushbuttons, and the stick can be swapped out with a Sanwa JLF stick with flat mounting plate. I've seen pictures of it done without any soddering. You'll just need to crimp some wire, yank out a PCB (where the buttons are) and connect using crimp quick connects. I haven't done it myself, but if I do and it's successful, I'll update this review.

If you've played fighting games in the last 10 years, then you're familiar with the high quality fight sticks that Hori produces. The Fighting Stick V3 is no exception to this.

But, you may ask... what makes it better than its predecessors? And, for that matter, what about the direct competitor, Mad Catz SE/WWE Brawl stick? Between the EX 2 and FS 3 and Mad Catz SF4 SE/WWE Brawl stick, the FS V3 has the benefit of being the perfect horizontal size. There is enough space on the sides of the stick for you to rest your hands. Plus, it's made with high-quality Hori parts. Or, if you prefer putting your fight stick on a tabletop, this thing does NOT budge.

The real magic of this is its potential. Inside the stick, the PCB and wiring is VERY clean. VERY easy to change parts out if you see fit.

However... there is one glaring thing I MUST point out. The Hori buttons are SOLDERED onto a PCB. Yes, it makes changing the buttons out is a bit of a pain.

Even novice modders can handle this. With a soldering iron and a solder sucker, you can simply remove the PCB from the buttons. At that, you can easily snap out the buttons and pop in your own Sanwa/Seimitsu buttons!

If you're like me, you're going to want to go with quick disconnects instead of RE-soldering the PCB back onto the buttons. That'll require some 22-guage wire, a bag of .110 quick disconnects, and a wire cutter/crimper.

As for the joystick, the Hori default in this stick is VERY good and changing out the restrictor plate is quite simplistic, as all it really takes is unscrewing the current square gate piece and replacing it with any Sanwa brand restrictor plate.

Yes, sounds like a lot of work. But, it really isn't.

Your bigger question is probably this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stick for a Great Price!! August 31, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of the time you have to pay top dollar to purchase a good fighting stick, but this stick is an exception.

For an awesome price of $59.99 you get all the qualities that you get from most of the arcade sticks in market and more! The HORI Fighting Stick V3 has a sleek design and light weight which makes it easier to carry around and transport. It has turbo functionality for all of the buttons and the six button layout keeps the stick nice and compact. The buttons are not Sanwa but are very responsive and so is the stick.

I am still new to fighting games and playing with arcade style stick controllers but found that this was a great starter stick for me to learn the ropes and get used to executing moves. I feel that this product is a great stick for anybody who is starting off in fighting games and looking to purchase a stick without spending over $100! You'll definitely feel that you have gotten your money's worth! Thanks HORI!!
