Hey guys, just received my HRAP in the mail this week. Figured I'd a do a little unboxing video of it. This is the "special edition" version of the HRAP EX, which includes Seimitsu arcade components in it. The Playstation 3 version is pretty much the exact stick with minor differences such as (Sanwa parts, colors, no break-away cables).
So far I'm really digging this stick. I've been using this a lot for my arcade titles mostly (Namco Virtual Museum) and my schmups (Raiden). The joystick has a really comfortable feel to it and the buttons are really poppy and takes little effort to push. This is the first stick I've ever owned, so I really can't do any comparisons, but for the current price of $90 you can't go wrong with this.
The build quality feels great on this device. It has some nice heft to it (because it uses a metal base, rather than all plastic). The cord does seem a bit short my needs (it's prob 9 feet or so), but my couch is about...
