C-C-C-Combo Breaker and Ultra with the Killer Instinct Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 for Xbox One. Continuing the legacy of the original TE FightStick, this all-new version builds premium, arcade-quality Sanwa Denshi parts into an arcade stick that's both ready for competition and perfect for customization to make it your very own.
Top customer reviews
The stick opens up very easily, and includes room to keep a few extra buttons, a two sided screwdriver to unscrew all of the different components of the case, very handy.
I frequently have to unplug my stick from my xbox 1 and plug it back in. I do not believe it is an issue with the stick, but the Xbox one itself. When waking the console up/turning it on occasionally the stick won't function, though the buttons are lit up. Unplugging the stick and plugging it back in seems to resolve this issue every time. I have never had the stick stop working while playing a game - only during the initial start up.
Other than it feeling a little flimsy, my only complaint is that dust/dirt seems to very easily get between the plexi top and the artwork. This is super annoying.
Overall I would easily recommend the stick to anyone looking to pick up Killer Instinct or any other fighting game that may come out on the Xbox One.
Before getting the KI TE2 I had played traditional arcade cabinets and even borrowed a 360 stick once, but never made the leap to owning one myself until last winter. Like most, I wanted to see what my options where before buying. With the Xbox One fresh off the shelves, at the time the only stick available was solely made my Mad Catz.
Mad Catz hasn't always been a quality peripheral producer but they have turned things around. Professional and high ranking fighting game players now use and/or get sponsored by Mad Catz and the brand is making a name for itself as a standard for fightsticks. As far as I know Mad Catz fightsticks are always approved to use at tournaments big and small. So if you ever do to find yourself wanting to compete in any tournament you don't have to buy a separate stick.
Basic Physical Features
-The button spacing feels slightly different from the usual stick/cabinet but it's easy to get use to.
-LEDs look great and can be turned on, off, and adjusted for brightness by holding the button.
-Bell top stick feels smooth on inputs.
-Buttons work perfectly just needing light presses without strain.
-Start and Select are both lockable
-Non-slip padding on the bottom works amazing in keeping it put. Great for lap and table.
-Latch button on the front makes it easy to open up the stick with no hassle.
-Everything from can be modded. Buttons, joystick, art, swapping to octagonal, etc.
-The inside has a slot to keep the cord when not in use along with a screw driver and 3 spaces for replacement buttons.
-Button wires can be easily swapped by puling and plugging them into your desired buttons.
-Top side has notches for a carrying strap.
-Cord isn't too short
All plastic, yet incredibly durable. I fell off a chair at my buddy's house and the corner of the stick actually chipped his wood floor without leaving a scratch on the fightstick.
Why I bought it
Currently, the only Xbox One game the KI TE2 fight stick will work with is Killer Instinct. But I bought it with the intention of using it for future fighting games for Xbox One down the road.
What most reviewers either don't know or neglect to mention you CAN also use it on PC. Just download the Xbox One driver from Microsoft (Which is free) on your PC and you are good to go.
(With the current driver for some reason it doesn't recognize the LT and RT inputs with all Xbox One controllers but you can switch the cords for LB and RT then remap in game to allow you to play with the standard six buttons fine. Plus they are going to fix this in the next driver update.)
Cons in General
-The default artwork sucks but like I said that can be changed out.
-It does have some weight to it.
-Button distances from each other is a little further apart but it isn't significant enough to have an effect.
-Though it has notches for a carrying strap it does not come with a strap and for $200 it should. You'll have to either improvise with a guitar strap or something if you plan on bringing on the go often. I bet there is a special fightstick strap online if you are hard pressed but I personally didn't bother.
-NOT backwards compatible for Xbox 360 on it's own and I know for those looking to buy a new stick, not being able to play the more popular Xbox 360 games is an issue, especially for new fightstick owners.
Though it sounds crazy. Don't let that initially jerk you away if.
As said earlier you can use the KI TE2 for PC.
What's surprising is that a Steam PC fighting game community actually exists and continues to grow. If you have a decent computer you can run fighting games that are now on PC like Ultra Street Fighter IV,King of Fighters, Blaz Blue, Skull Girls, Mortal Kombat, and xTekken. (Your 360 fightstick will also work on PC after downloading the Xbox 360 driver)
You buy a Cronus max online for $60 which will allow you to use the KI TE2 on any console you want.
Because of both I only need one stick for all my needs.
It's good quality though a bit pricey but still not too bad for what you are getting.I recommend it for those who want a second stick for the next gen and also for looking to own there first stick.
- Real quality Sanwa joystick and buttons designed for continued use and abuse.
- easy tool free access to the inside of the stick, makes it very modder friendly.
- grippy lap rest, it won't fall of your lap easily.
- You have to screw the cable to the stick which is as annoying as it sounds.
- the left and right corners of the fightstick box are a little weak, this is because of the openable design that leaves a small gap on the sides, I don't recommend grabbing the box with one hand by the sides if you want to lift the stick. This problem only happens if you try to grab the box by the sides with one hand, under normal use and abuse the box is very sturdy.
- If this is your first time using a stick I recommend getting the Sanwa octagonal restrictor gate as well, the square restrictor gate on this stick while good is a bit unfriendly for first time users.
-Should you get it? If you really want a fightstick and can't get another one modded under the price of this one then yes. If you can find another good stick and get it modded for cheap then get the other.
