I have to say- I was not expecting this stick to be as nice as all the hype built it up to be, but I have to eat my words and admit I was wrong. I got the lucky opportunity to pick one of these up for not much more than retail even though I never pre-ordered it, so I did because I wanted to see what the fuss was about and get a good comparison to the HRAP 3 SA. So far, it's been a great playing experience. It's got some really good weight to it, and obviously the sanwa components are top quality. Feels good on your lap, and very easy to play with in general. I'm not a huge fan of the start/select buttons all the way on the back of the stick...maybe on the right side would have been more convenient IMO, but that's the only complaint I can come up with...
I originally said that I didn't think this stick would be better than the HRAP3 SA, and I still stand by that though. I don't think it's better, BUT I don't think it's worse either. Both sticks have a solid arcade feel to them, and both use genuine sanwa parts. The color scheme of this one is growing on me more, but I might end up doing some kind of art mod later...
Anyway- I'm eating my words, Mad Catz actually made a good controller for once, haha. The fact that Mad Catz made something on par with what I consider the best arcade stick hori has to offer is absolutely crazy to me, but it seems to be true. Don't know how this stick came out so well and the SE version is so full of issues....
Mad Catz promised to make more of these fightsticks and they also stated that their goal is for everyone who wants one to have one. Don't be dumb, and don't get ripped off. Be patient, these sticks are not limited edition. More are coming in stock as time goes by.
Anyways I just had the chance to sit down and finally see what all the hype was all about for this joystick. Please keep in mind this is my first joystick so while I may not have the experience of others in knowing what's good or bad I have the common sense to tell what's quality and what's not. Here's what you need to know: the buttons and stick ooze quality. They feel and sound great. This is arcade perfect of the Viewlix cabinet so quality parts are a given. Since it has Sanwa parts you don't have to worry about modification. The plastic shell case doesn't have a real high end feel to it, but does the job just fine. My biggest gripe in terms of quality has to do with USB cable storage door. Granted I only opened the door 2 times but I was nervous both times to not break anything off. I would advise owners to handle the storage door with care.
For PSX/PS2/PC compatibility I haven't tried it with PSX/PS2 games so I can't say, though I think I remember people saying it doesn't work with PS2 games. PSX might be okay, but don't quote me on that. As for PC I plugged it in (Vista 64-bit on an Intel-based system) and after a short driver installation period I was good to go. This is great for MAME or Mugen or whatever else fits in those gaming categories.
If you're looking for a quality joystick and if you can get your hands on one I recommend you get one of these.Read more ›
FYI, when you insert the Street Fighter 4 disc into your PS3 make sure you go to -> "Options" -> "System Settings" -> "Install. This will improve load times and online play.
I was fortunate to get this FightStick at retail price($149), because I pre-order this product in early December. However, it's unfortunate when third party sellers are trying to sell the Street Fighter IV tournament FightStick at triple or quadruple from the original price. If MadCatz decide not to make anymore I recommend to look elsewhere. For example, I believe Hori came out with the Playstation 3 Real Arcade Pro. 3 Fighting Stick, or a company called, Arcade-in-a-box. I heard both of these company's fight sticks are well made--do a Google search.
Having said that, this is a top quality stick and you won't be disappointed.

Truly awesome stick. Prior to buying this stick, I only ever owned Hori RAP's, swapping in Sanwa parts.
As such, this stick plays almost identically to my RAP's. Read more
