3.0 out of 5 stars A decent fightstick with some quirks October 18, 2009
By snkcube
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The stick used for this is trash. The first day I received this, the stick was already faulty because the stick was not able to register a few motions. It turns out the stick is actually a Sanwa knockoff and it shows by its poor quality. I was forced to replace the stick with a Sanwa one, which was something I was already planning on doing. The buttons on the fightstick is mostly good, except after using it for over a month, my roundhouse button has started to act up. It will mostly register the action, but once in a while, it will not. Like the stick, I will be replacing the buttons with Sanwa parts really soon.

Other than those two problems, the fightstick itself is fine. It is small and portable and it feels nice using it. The layout of the buttons is great and the spacing between the stick and buttons is great too. The fightstick is also very easy to mod so you can easily swap out the stick, buttons or the artwork without any problem.

My recommendation is if you have the money for the TE fightstick, then go for it. If not, then this is a decent alternative with a few problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like I expected it to May 23, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing with the SE fightstick for about a month now, with at least one hour of use every day. Thankfully I didn't have the loose washer issue (first thing I did was listen very carefully as I moved the stick around -- I thought it would be okay if I didn't hear any scraping/scratching noises, as I assumed the later units should not have such a big problem).

This is my first stick, so I'm no expert on them, and as such I think this is a great stick. Buttons are sensitive, the stick works well (once you get used to the square gate), and it's a nice weight so that I can set it on a chair or on my lap unsecured and it won't move too much, or at all.

After a month of use I'm beginning to suspect that some of the buttons will begin sticking, but I was aware this might happen as they're not Sanwa parts. If it becomes big enough of a problem I'll order replacement parts and swap buttons, which seems easy enough to do. After I do that I don't think I'll have any further reasons to complain.

All in all, this is a bit more expensive than I would expect for an arcade stick (by $15-$20) that doesn't have premium arcade parts and seems designed as a starting point for modification. All indications point to a product out-of-the-box that has a limited life before it starts having issues (though online discussion is going to be biased towards those who have problems). With that being said, I'm not unhappy with my purchase at all, and neither are the dopamine receptors in my brain every time I get my hands on this thing. (Now if only I could find some opponents online with whom I match up well...)

3.0 out of 5 stars Great case, easy to mod February 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This is the second stick I've got, but both of the ones I own I received in January, so I can't help but compare the SF4 stick to the PS3 Fighting Stick 3. The differences between the two are pretty drastic - the Hori stick was a really good first choice for me because it has stock parts that are decent for first-timers and really got me into playing fighting games again, but because it requires soldering and dremels to properly mod, and because its case is just too small to easily fit Sanwa's JLF and Seimitsu's LS sticks, I didn't feel comfortable opening it up.

I got the SF4 stick and immediately fell in love with the case - the pictures online don't do it justice. Maybe it's because I was playing with the FS3 for so long and its sticker was starting to bubble and it is lightweight and thin, but the SF4 stick has good weight to it and the art, aside from looking good, really feels like it's protected well from oil and grime from your hands. However, even though I only just ordered it last week, THE WASHER PROBLEM DOES STILL EXIST. While MadCatz may have fixed the problem in sticks just produced, there's no guarantee that your fight stick won't be one that was on the shelf for months with a faulty washer.

Luckily it's a great stick for modding. I just completed my first ever mod tonight using a Sanwa JLF and OBSN-30 buttons. Unlike the FS3, which has a huge PCB with the buttons directly soldered to it, the buttons in the SF4 stick have quick disconnects and are easily accessed as soon as you open the stick. It's a quick change for the buttons and if you use the proper JLF stick, even quicker there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great product June 29, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a great product (especially the second generation), helps your game a lot, its well built and pretty solid (it's support even the beating of a one year old lol). Just a little warning to all the gamepad sf4 players. It takes a little time to get used to it, don't espect to just take it out of the box and start making ultras right away, it takes a little practice.

I gave it four stars just because of the 4 way gate. An 8 way gate will be much better especially for d df f projectiles (ryu,sagat,ken,....)

Its very easy to open and replace parts or mod it.

4.0 out of 5 stars SFIV Fight Stick June 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
From being a pad warrior to a stick warrior is no easy transition! You will get owned by the competition so bad when you first move to a stick from using a pad, it will be really frustrating. Although we all started playing Street Fighter II in the arcade, when it made its way onto the Super NES, most of us became pad warriors. We all learned to beat the computer really easily with a pad, and beat all of our friends most of the time. That being said, I can't really say how inferior/superior this is to a true arcade stick. Coming from a pad, it feels like an arcade stick, it plays like an arcade stick, and it even sounds like an arcade stick.

To my understanding it is using replica Sanwa parts, rather than real ones, but you can easily mod it to have the real ones (or shell out the extra $70 for the Tournament Edition stick which uses real Sanwa parts). Once again, coming from a pad, I can't really tell.

If you're coming from a pad as well, there is a pretty tight learning curve to movements, and execution that you may not be used to. I'm still not getting the most basic QCF, QCB + Attack motions perfectly. Thankfully, go into Training Mode and put your inputs on screen to see what you're doing wrong. I've learned on the stick, I'm pressing an attack button before going all the way to forward/back. So, you can learn to correct your mistakes.

However, there are more things you can do on a stick than you ever could on a pad. Challenge Mode is a good example. There are just things that are so much easier to do on a stick than a pad. The easiest example I can think of is Guile's Ultra/Super. DB (hold) to DF, back to DB to UF + Kick. You can do this so much easier on a stick. I can say I can do it nearly 100% of the time with the stick.
