Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen the TE quality Fightsticks go for that cheap. Anyone even remotely considering a fightstick should jump on this deal.

Also remember the basics of dual modding, kiddies! If you want one stick to rule them all ™ you should get a 360 fightstick, as that allows you to simply install a TE Kitty and have all the hard work done for you! :D You can learn more at Shoryuken's Tech Talk forums.


^THIS. So much this. I've dual-modded a couple of 360 TEs and it's pretty painless. I feel like this is a better deal than the FightPads. If you've been wanting to pick up a great, out-of-the-box top quality joystick, you can't beat this for $80!

Dang. Too late for all xbox 360 ones. Except the 40 dollar one.


Likely, in part, because this is a cheap source for 360 PCBs which modders can use to DIY dual-mod sticks.

I have one of the brawl pads for 360 and I have greatly enjoyed it and functions fairly well on the PC. I REALLY want to get a fightstick but I just cant spend 80 plus the extra to dual mod it which would be the only way i could get value out of it. If i stick with fighters any longer i might have to break down and get one.

Looks like all the PS3 ones are gone, would have considered one even though I already have a modded fight stick and a PS3 versus fighting pad.

Hm. Which is better for 2d fighters, the sc5 or sfxtekken stick? Apologies for the noob question, just am thinking of upgrading from my current Wwe brawlstick.

The only real difference is the button layout. SfxTekken stick has viewlix like a brawlstick, SCV is a modified Noir layout.

Spent too long deliberating on which design to get, then they all sold out. Go figure

Jeez. While the 71 dollar Soul Calibur TE ps3 stick deal on amazon was technically better, I would rather have saved for this and done the easier dual mod. Decisions...I still have my TE NIB and could sell it easily i think.

Wow... even though I already have one, that stick is seriously tempting at $80. It's almost worth that price just for the replacement parts for my other TE.

EDIT: Oh. My. God! It went out of stock in the time it took me to write this post. I went back, added to cart, went to checkout, and it was gone! DAMN YOU CAG!!!!!!!! :)

Good deals on the sticks although not a big fan of the FSP. Feels flimsy & cheap compared to a TE. Between the 2, I prefer the SCV stick due to the higher overall quality & beautiful 3-tone translucent case. In fact, I've got the case, "Edge" bezel & a couple other arcade parts for sale here if anyone's interested:

Noooo! I've been looking for a cheap turbo controller and can't believe I missed this.

How good is Newegg at refilling stock?

This is a great deal for pad players.

I personally favor Eightarc Fusion over MadCatz TE these days. There's just something more solid about Eightarc (qanba in disguise) over MadCatz.

IDK if I'm glad it's OOS or what? I don't need another stick, but for that price I would've bought 1 or 2.

Four of the fightpads are back instock.

I decided to buy one to see if it could help me complete the 320 missions in MvC3.

Actually three. One of them is $39.99 and never went out of stock.

I passed on these the first time. Now I'm thinking about it. How do these compare to the Madkatz Street Fighter IV pads? The buttons on those were too flat for me - they're like saucers. Is the d-pad the same?

This video compares the two pads.

Nice, but it didn't answer my question about the buttons being flat, he only mentioned that they raised the d-pad. I guess it wasn't a problem for him. I will wait to see if the Xbox ones come back in stock since that's where I really need it.

Maybe I am just a moron and can't figure out how to do this. How do you set the turbo for a button so it keeps pressing it without you having to hold the button down? I want it to keep hitting "A" with me out of the room. Is that possible? The instructions only seem to show how to set the turbo button to work if you keep the button pressed.
