Tekken 6 LE w/ wireless fightstick (360) 39.99 @ Amazon

360 only, ps3 is 79.99. Great deal for everyone that missed this stick when it hit 29.99 at Bestbuy awhile back. Stick is pretty decent quality for the price, but comes with nonstandard parts so isn't easily mod-able with your own stick and buttons.

Game trades in for 7.75 at amazon right now.

EDIT: For those looking for higher quality alternatives or input on the stick from someone that's used alot of sticks for comparison, Nucking Futz! has some great information and alternatives here.

I'm not sure if I want to bite this at that price, but I have been looking for a stick. Anyother recommendations?

If you want a cheap quality one to see if you like a fightstick, or a backup for guests, I don't think there are any other fightsticks for 360 that compare to the price/quality for this one. If you know you are going to be using one alot and want a quality one, you should save up and get a quality stick. Brief research prior to buying this fightstick made it look like you could get or put together a quality stick by swapping out parts for around 150-200 out of pocket (out of my price range).

Honestly I'm glad I got this one, I found that I really won't be using it enough to justify spending more on one.

Thanks for the info, I think I will get it after your review. I really like fighting games, but not enough to dish out $150-$200.

Dumb question, but this stick works well with SF4, right? I mean, if I remember correctly, the button layouts are pretty similar, no?

I was going to post this deal, thought I might be the first to see it since I had a camelcamelcamel alert set up for it, but you guys beat me to it.

I bought one. I am looking forward to seeing if I can improve my scores in Pac Man DX using this stick. I might even play a few fighters with it...

Thanks OP! Seems like an awesome price for an entry-level fight stick, and the game is a nice bonus.

Works great with it. Also most games let you change the button mapping so it'll be fine.

I own 2 of these sticks (from the BB sale) and I use trhem fairly often when I have friends come over. They work great for SF4, BlazBlue, MVC 3, and pretty good for MK (my only gripe is that block is RT which is tough to hit quickly (like reactionary, which is needed to block) and consistently on this stick). Id say if this is your first stick, or you arent a "fighting stick elitist" then this is a very good entry level stick for the price. If you dont want the game and book that are included you could sell them to bring down the cost.

I might actually buy at this price... I missed out back when Best Buy was clearing them out for $30, but I don't know if they'll drop down to that again any time soon.

Get this if you really want a fight stick and don't wanna shell out a couple hundred bucks for one.

I got this from BB a while back and regret it. The thing "clicks" anytime you move the joystick the buttons aren't great.

I'm not a fightstick person but I was expecting much more.

I got Tekken 6 + the fightstick for $60 way back in like 09 lol. I haven't even tried the fightstick yet. Once I get around to playing Mortal Kombat for more than like 20 minutes at a a time I will use it heh. This is a good deal

Great price for a wireless stick, plus I can sell the game + art book to make another $10 back.

I've played with it before and can vouch for it being a pretty decent entry stick. Good deal for people that have never tried fight sticks before. I think Gamestop had these on clearance for even cheaper a long time ago if you can even find them anymore.

They were $29.99 + tax at BB but it didn't last long. An extra $6 considering the added rarity of it these days is pretty good (the sticks alone were going for $35-40 used on eBay a couple weeks back).

to be honest, the stick is awful. but if it's your first stick and its more for casual use, you probably wont even care. good find tho, $40 is decent price

It's the only wireless joystick out there for the 360 - this is why I got it. No, it's not as good as my ASCII ones's that I bought for my Sega Saturn back in 1998, but nothing has ever been as good as those. And I bought 3 since they were 10 bucks each on clearance - online, none of this YMMV crap.

With that rant, these are great for what they are- I bought one at release for BS price, and then bought another when it was 40 or 50 bucks- gave the game and book to my brother. I don't play fighting games like I used to, so it's not a mega issue.

Nice price and even better since it comes with a game. Sucks that it's cordless my 360 won't stay synced to wireless controllers. I guess you could still use it on a PC through one of those USB receivers.... I've been in the market for a stick recently to use with 360 XBLA games and fighters/SHUMPS plus PC um yea solitaire and stuff lol. They are rather pricey.

Don't get this stick. I bought it at GameStop a while back and it is a complete piece of shit and isn't suitable for any sort of serious play.

What the hell. I will never be able to talk myself into spending the money on a top end stick because I just don't play fighters enough to warrant it. $40 for this stick and Tekken 6 pushed me over the edge. Thanks OP!

ya.. i was very tempted to get this since i actually need a 2nd stick for the 360... but i heard bad things about the quality of this one. After flipping through this thread it seems other people agree. I MAY have bit anyway just to use it as a backup, but if im not mistake this stick is wireless isn't it? Thats fail in my book, i want a corded one for sure

maybe i'll get one of those street fighter 6 button controllers if they drop in price

The stick is garbage, just buy Tekken 6 by itself if you want to play it. I purchased this a while ago and traded in the game and gave the stick to a friend, kept the art book though.

I understand it's not the best stick in the world, but you are getting a stick for approximately the cost of a standard wireless controller. Can anyone that's crapping on the stick provide a comparable piece of hardware for a comparable price? Please we would appreciate it.

Well I lucked out a while ago getting a SF4 SE stick for $15 at walmart and replaced the buttons and stick for around the same price as this.
IMO you would be better off with a normal 360 controller then the stick that comes with this package.

I have the stick and disagree that a normal controller is better, this definitely plays fine for me. I am only casually into fighting games. Stick allows me to predictably pull of the 'moves' while the standard controller does not.

The stick is the main problem with the fightstick, it's way too thin and will break in no time at all if you're actually playing relatively often.

If you're just interested in the stick, just get a SE from MadCatz for around the same price and much better quality.
