Looks like supply has caught up with demand. Now the inevitable plunge in price. This actually may be the best price we see on this stick without coupon or other offers.

Buy one jughead you won't be dissappointed in this stick!

I am grabbnig a 360 TE FS, I wanted a PS3 one but I guess it doesn't work with the PS2 BC. I am hoping this stick is all its cracked up to be and not another eventually nonworking madcatz product.
Thanks for the heads up as always Cheapy

hmm... I didn't know the 360 TE wasn't PS2 BC. I'm glad I have a HRAP3 for PS3. Now... I wonder if my custom stick works with PS2 games?

It's $120 with ECA. I wouldn't have ordered it straight from capcom a few weeks ago had I known amazon and other places would be getting it back in stock.

This stick is all kinds of awesome. I have one for my 360 and have had no problems whatsoever. You can thank MarkMan for making this thing for MadCatz, and slightly turning their company image around. MadCatz'll need more than this, but its a good start.

Makes me wish I had waited another two months; who knew it would plummet this fast?

Dang, it doesn't work with PS2/1 games? That was the main reason I was interested in it (for now), my PS1 games.

I've heard both versions work with the PC though which is cool, but...I still don't know which version to get, and am ticked they couldn't have one that works for all three platforms instead of just 2 out of 3.

I second that frustration. I really wanted the BlazBlue PS3 version but had committed to making my 360 the fighting game system simply because of achievements.

If I had to do it over again I'd probably go PS3 because of the Blu Ray extras and also because I keep hearing the PS3 fighting community is bigger and will outlast the 360 one.

i believe the ps3 stick work with ps1/2 games as long as you play them on the ps3. but the stick itself cannot be used on a ps1/2.

i have the 360 one. seeing this i guess i shouldve waited, i barely used mine and got it on release day. it is a great stick although i prefer american style stick over japanese. the 360 stick works great with original xbox games as well as PC.

That one person was saying it doesn't work with PS2 backwards compatibility though :-/

Are American sticks the...I don't know how you say it, like the tapered versus "ball" sticks? I like the tapered ones more, I guess.

well you can always swap out the stick. I thought the TE sticks were a bit more modular in design and friendlier towards customizers.

I really want a second stick. I wonder if they will go even lower, or if they are actually somewhat limited. I don't expect any fighting game to have the stick impact that SFIV did, so maybe these will start showing up for $99 in a few months.

i was able to use te stick on ps1/2 games on my ps3, you can too but for ps2 games, only if your ps3 runs ps2 game. where did you get the info that you can't? i will proceed to verifying te stick compatibility with ps1/2 games later today.
madcatz te stick is nonworking for street fighter alpha anthology for ps2 when i tried it on my ps3. it doesnt accept it and said that no dualshock 2 is connected. i just test the te stick with a random ps1 game and and it works.
but if you want a stick that works for ps2 games, hori fightstick is the way to go. I just tested that hori fightstick on my ps3.

the hori fighting stick 3 isn't a bad stick for the price, but if you want a solidly performing stick that is BC with PS2 I'd suggest you go with a RAP1/2 and a PS2-PS3 converter. If the parts don't really matter to you, I would even go with an old school namco arcade stick. There's a reason why it was the best joystick before arcade parts were introduced into the home market.

Thankfully with the release of the newer sticks, the value of ithas decreased. It used to go for about $70-80 used.

I had just bought a TE stick this morning from amazon because I recieved my 50% coupon last night. After seeing this I immediately canceled my order. If my math is correct, amazon matching this price would make the stick free with 50%, ECA, and Part of my trade in. What do you all think the chances are that they will actually match it though? the 50% coupon lasts till august 31st, but the ECA codes stop working 7/31. I really dont want to risk not getting the $15 off from ECA because I waited.

I'm waiting to do the same, but are the ECA codes really expiring 7/31?

Yeah I was a click away from paying 119.99 after ECA from buy then saw that 7-9 days shipping. Hope amazon price matches soon so that I can use my amazon prime.

Easy...

1. Ask Doc Brown if you can borrow his DeLorean.
2. Drive 88 MPH.
3. Go back in time a couple weeks ago.
4. Trade in $50 or more in video games in Amazon's trade-in store.
5. Receive 50% off coupon.

I thought the current batch of ECA codes expired on 9/30?
