4.0 out of 5 stars Morre advice than review. April 30, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First thing is first, if you have a classic arcade jones, or maybe you are like me, and plan on building a MAME machine someday when you don't live on a third floor apartment, just pick up this stick. It's a quality product and is rock solid. That said, I have a few words of advice to impart.

As soon as you place your order or pick it up at your local Fry's, go to Home Depot and buy some rubber mesh shelving liner and a moderate size roll of 3M double sided tape. While the stick is rugged, heavy, and just oozes quality construction, it's way more mobile than I'd like when it's sitting on a smooth surface like a coffee table. I popped the hard rubber screw covers off, screwed the screws in all the way and applied small squares of double sided tape over the screws. Then I applied the tape the short length of the base and a few generous strips between the screw points along the length of the base, in addition to a few generous strips in the middle to help insure the stability. I then applied the shelving relatively taught to the bottom surface. While the stick could weigh a few more pounds for those 2 player sessions, it really isn't necessary after you apply the shelving to the bottom. On my wood coffee table, the stick now stays put wereas before, it would slide all around when I was the only person playing. It was much worse with two people. An adventurous person might look at securing weights within the confines of the joystick cabinet as an added bonus to immobility.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-Arcade Dual Joystick is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! December 23, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just got mine today and it is like living in a dream. Feels just like the old arcade joystick and buttons. It is made very well and comes with a cable for your pc as well as a few games for the pc.

I got the X-Box adapter and after seeing how well it works on the PC and X-Box, I plan to purchase the adaptor for my Gamecube as well.

If you are looking for a great way to play those Mame Roms or old arcade classics, this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contrary to popular belief--there is no lag. May 6, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great product for those unwilling to invest triple its price, but still wanting to replicate the arcade experience. Given that pretty much any 300 dollar Netbook running XP can run Mame, this thing = instant-arcade, complete with easily programmable buttons via a PS/2-connected Keyboard and 4 memory locations for key assignments.

Many of the complaints directed at this product are those directed at its PS2 adapter. While this may have been a problem with older revisions of the adapter hardware, I can say, without a doubt, that it has been adressed. The PS2 adaptor is how it always was--you plug the serial-male into the serial-female in the back of the X-arcade, then connect the 2 PS-style controller inputs at the front to the PS2. If you want to use a PS3, 2 incredibly high-quality PS3 -> PS2/PS2 mem-card adapters are included, which plug into the PS3's USB ports and can be set via the PS menu easily.

I set up my PC, using assorted programs (Joy2Mouse to convert the PS3 signal to a PC-friendly mouse-button click), to test the lag using all assorted adapters. All adapters tested had a delay of less than 7 milliseconds, which is about half the time a frame spends onscreen in a 60fps game. Check this link: [...]which inspired me to do the above test (and basically lays out exactly how to do it including program names) The feedback is realtime given the new equipment.

The button layout is the only thing I'm not huge on--that and, upon original shipment, my 2p joystick "stuck" when the Right direction was toggled. It was easily fixed upon adjusting the throw (which is easily done by unscrewing all 4 feet, complete with intuitively layed-out innards, labels, and quick-disconnects for modding fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the 80's May 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
The X-Arcade controls worked exactly as promised! It's easy to plug in and easy to install. I built a cabinet for them for the true 1980's effect. Brings you right back. Durable, too.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered the X-Gaming X-Arcade controller as I am building an arcade machine. I had the monitor, computer, speakers and all of the other components, I just needed a controller. After considering building my own, and also some other slightly cheaper options, I decided to purchase this product. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is sturdy, robust, easily programmable and looks great. Very highly recommended.

I recently started getting back into playing Tekken and needed an arcade stick several years ago as a friend of mine gave me his Tekken 6 game on Xbox 360. I kept going back and forth on getting an arcade stick because I knew that each time a new console comes out I have to get a new arcade stick.

So when my wife surprised me with this on my birthday in 2009, I was a bit sad because I knew this thing was old and probably did not support current consoles. Well, to my surprise they created an adaptor for the current consoles and I have been using it on my Xbox360 and Ps3 for fighting games.

First and foremost his is a very sturdy and well built machine. I use it for single play even though it has 2 sets of buttons. I have been using this solid for the last five years. Just yesterday did 1 of my buttons go out (associated with "A" button on Xbox360). Just go to their site and you can get a 2-player-set of replacement buttons for $40. That will last at a minimum another 5 years.

If you are a person that plays fighting games, and wants an arcade stick that is compatible wtih all old consoles Playstation 1 - current (while you may need to buy additional adapters for some of these) this is a no-brainer........ Not to metion tha added benefit of easily working with a PC and working with MAME.

If you plan on playing at tournament level of play on a fighting game then I would suggest buying a specific arcade stick. But if you don't want to play at that high a level then you can't go wrong.
