I'm planning on getting a fight stick, but I have no idea what I'm looking for. Is there any difference between the Soul Calibur and Street Fighter vs. Tekken ($100 version) besides the artwork? I was also looking at the Gamestop exclusive Injustice stick, but I haven't been able to find who is making that stick. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
IIRC both the SC and Sf x T sticks are both made with top of the line Sanwa parts, its just different skins. Don't get the injustice stick it look like pure garbage. As a poster said, go to Tek Innovations and you can replace the artwork with whatever you want: lolcats hello kitty, justin beeber whatever. I guess a decision you would have to make is what color scheme you would want for your buttons.
they're the same, just different artwork
IIRC sc stick has Namco noir button layout while sfxt uses vewlix
The SCV & Fightstick Pro sticks are completely different besides the fact they both use all-Sanwa components & are manufactured by Madcatz. The SCV stick has a Namco Noir button layout while the FSP has a Vewlix button layout. If you're into replacing artwork then it's much easier to do with the SCV stick. The SCV case is a 3-tone translucent case while the FSP (the $100 version) case is all black. Also, the FSP has a longer & more angled wrist rest area (which I prefer since it feels more comfy after 30+ mins of usage). IMHO, the quality on SCV is much better although I prefer a Vewlix button layout.
As for the Injustice stick, it's made by PDP. Though not really known for quality products, their last 2 sticks (MK Tournament Edition & MK Klassic) have been steller with great quality, fit & finish so I'm actually looking forward to this Injustice stick.

Love me some arcade sticks!

Buy a used one. A little bit of luck and you can get one for around $80 shipped on eBay or SRK, or you might be able to find one on CL.
Someday, someday, I will not feel guilty and actually buy one of these TEs.
