Tempting but that fightstick looks hideous to me still. The TE fightstick is a frickin' tank. It's a very good build I assume this one is of similar quality.

Now playing:

:ps4: Last of Us: Remastered
:ps3: God of War: Ascension

:360: Gears of War 3

Interesting. Those fight sticks also include a DLC code for the MK Kollection(Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) for 360 or PS3 when you buy them.

That's a $10 value by itself, coupled with the free ground shipping for the sticks. So in essences you're paying $35 or less for these when the free shipping/DLC code is figured in.

I can't figure out how you'd play Street Fighter on that thing, heh.

Yeah street fighter is tough. It does work awesome on the new NBA Jam and Tecmo Bowl though. This stick is the same as the TE stick but with retro art- really substantial and sturdy.

So since the manufacturer lowered their price on these, I assume the retailers should follow suit very soon.

I'm waiting for an expert to pop in and tell us if these are authentic Sanwa parts. Is this a great stick without modding?

I doubt it considering GS is the only retailer (as far as I know) that carries it.

I know they are not but if memory serves me correct from this was discussed a very long time ago, they are quality happa Suzo-Happ parts.

We all know the current GS sale was put in place to get rid of vanilla MKs before the KE comes out, but maybe they were trying to get rid of some sticks too.

If they are HAPP parts then really that is just as good. Just hoping to avoid a MadCatz Street Fighter SE situation where the only reason to buy is to swap parts.

Haha. Although I think the TE stick looks slick, I prefer the design of the "Klassic" stick because it reminds me when the first MK arcade cabinet showed up at my university's arcade room and the whole MK craze started. Plus, can't beat $49.99 with free shipping as well as DLC.

I'm with you. I've been keeping an eye out for this stick at my local GS. I was tempted when it dropped to $99. There's one box tucked away on a shelf 10 feet high and the price hasn't budged. I've been holding out for $75. Of course, at $49.99, I bit on this deal. :bouncy:

I picked one up to accommodate my TE stick on the PS3, I'm thinking about picking one up for the 360. >_<

I was going to get one last week with the GS deal and send the game to Amazon for $31, but my 20% off "store closing" coupon wouldn't stack so I passed.

This is exactly why I bit on this deal. I snagged the "kollector's edition" for less than $50 last year. I just needed this stick to complete the "kollection".

You're right the TE version was made out of Suzo-Happ parts. The joystick is the Americanized baseball bat top which I frankly prefer to the lollipop versions in Japan.

Yeah it has a nostalgic look to it and all. When MK1 first came out the gore factor was a huge draw just because it was so blatantly different than other fighting games at your local 7-Eleven/arcade stop.

Now playing:

Is it wrong that I'm completely stoked about this, especially with the DLC? I haven't bought an MK game in years, it might be time.

Tempting, especially since I prefer Happ but I can't seem to get over that the MK button layout is pretty crummy for most other games :/

Sweet! I kept staring at this, waiting for the price to go down. It's not perfect against the arcade art and the run button on the original design bothers me, but as close as you'll get without owning one.

Great find, OP, thanks!

Looks like a nice stick, but the button layout is atrocious . . . I know its the classic MK layout, but it seems like it would be a hassle to use this layout on just about any other game.
