Most of their prices seem to have gone up since their last sale.

Dammit, I just bought Disgaea DS for a few bucks more than that. Glad I held out on buying a fight pad, though.

I can play just fine with a DS3 controller...but how are the fight pads compared to a DS3? Are they actually worth it or should I just keep waiting for a good deal on a fight / tournament stick instead?

If you're going to shell out extra money just for an improved way of playing fighting games, go for a stick.

The SE recently dropped to $40, and the TE is at $99 -- both at Amazon.

Although note that you will have to install improved buttons in the SE for $20 or so -- the stock ones only last a month.

Yeah I've seen the modding videos to replace the stick/buttons to Sanwa parts for the SE. Apparently the stick is a Sanwa knockoff so it will be around $30-40 total. The TE for $99 seems like a great price...but I think I will wait then until there is a really great deal for a TE. Thanks Panzer!

Been waiting for a good price on a Cammy PS3 pad to go with my PS3 stick, and this is even cheaper than the Mad Catz 30% off promos they've been running lately.

To my knowledge, none of the TE sticks have been any cheaper than $90 new, and that was a one-weekend sale at Fry's. The cheapest new they've been is $100 to my knowledge.

$100 for a TE is seriously a good deal. Anything lower will be incredibly, incredibly rare. Unless the SSFIV sticks bomb hard, I guess.

I'd kind of like the Bison one, but I don't really have the 20 dollars to waste on something so arbitrary I guess. Seems like a decent price. What's the MSRP?

Must be my lucky night in one way. I was thinking today I want a fight pad/rocketfish controller. Someone posted the Rocketfish controller for 14.99 and now I see the fight pads for 19.90. Only bad thing is I don't have the money for a fight pad. I bought a used one a long time which was a mistake. I was willing to give it another chance. Great deal on those pads.

Well...it appears Amazon dropped the old TE to $99 because of the release of the Round 2 sticks. Regardless...I'm sure I'll see the original TE stick for cheaper after the release of the game.

Worst case scenario, I just get the SE and mod it. Thanks guys!

DONT

went through 2 myself and was quite upset (paid retail). I waited for a TE stick and it makes you WAY better.

Some people tend to have better luck than others with those things. If you play SFIV a lot like me, it will break

If you meant that for me...I assume then you mean don't go for the SE and bother modding it? If so, that will be my last resort. I plan on getting the old TE, but $100 is a little steep for me right now...considering I still have Red Dead Redemption and UFC 2010 to get next month. I'm totally comfortable using the DS3, so I can wait a bit more.

It will suck though if the original TE's sell out before they go below $100...

You broke your SEs before/during/ or after modding them?

I'm thinking of either getting a sanwa stick in my SE (already have the buttons), or just getting a new stick later this year.

How long does it take for GoGamer to ship. Bought JC2 for $30 last sale and it's been closed and said it's shipped, but it's not being tracked?

Confused :(

Amazon has it for $20 more. I only mention that because when
I try to get GoGamer to ship stuff to me, they want to screw
me on shipping.

Is that the 'o rly' owl?

Game I ordered from the last Madness appears to be a reseal and the case is broken. I order many games; this is a first. Buyer beware.
