Just came back from my local GS and they had a dusty T5 arcade stick. Sticker said $79.99 but rang up for $29.99. I was tradding in a copy of Halo2 to get the $22 credit and ended up having to pay just $10 for the stick. Sweeet

The hori controller and the Tekken 5 w/ a special dvd case to hold the rest of the Tekken games.

The stick is great for tekken and other 3d fighters but doesn't work well with 2d fighters.

I called around, the furthest one I'm willing to drive to has one in stock and they're holding it for me. ROCK.

The store that had one around my way was actually holding it for someone as well. Looks like this deal is getting around fast.

WTF? $22 trade-in credit for Halo 2?? That can't be right, can it?

Good deal... I think I'll pass though seeing as how I just got the SF 2 stick a month or so ago and have yet to use it, don't really think I'd have much use for a second one.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

This is baffling. I was in a Gamestop two days ago that had a stick for $70, and it drops now? I'm not going to be able to get there like all weekend. Hopefully they'll still have it...

The stick is great for tekken and other 3d fighters but doesn't work well with 2d fighters.


I had no problems using this for 2d-fighters as the Tekken 5 one is an Sqaure gate you won't get the full 360 motion for 2d fighters. SO you just gotta remember your using a square gate when purforming fireball motions.

hmmm...I'll keep that in mind next time I use it. My problem with the stick was that it was too loose, which I thought was fine in 3D games.

So yeah, I just got back with mine. I traded in my old (GH edition, mind you) Tekken 5, and got $7 twords it. Totally worth it. Now I've got a nice stick, a non GH edition of Tekken 5, and that Tekken game holder (Of which I'll only be able to put 2 games in... but I won't) The weird thing is that the game holder must've been glued all wrong, it was all stuck shut and together, and each DVD tray has like 2 dabs of glue holding them on. Oh well, it's going to stay boxed up anyways. Thanks a TON to the submitter, this was an excellent deal.

I'm off to go play with my stick! (Pun might be intended)

Ugh. I just payed $70 after trade ins for the package and the Futurama game. JUST A FREAKING MONTH AGO.
I wish Ebgames did price adjustments, because I still have the receipt.

This may just be my area, but I've seen 1-2 in EVERY Eb near me. I don't think they should be that hard to find.

Most Gamestop's should have at least one in stock but at that price most are going to get snapped up by an employee.

Just call your local ones. They'll know if they have one in or not, because I'm sure they've been kicking around for months and employees would probably be annoyed with such large objects sitting around not selling. And no, I don't think it's on their site anymore.
