Will be shipping Feb 21 .Sure the price is "steep" but this fighstick is great quality and considering the first wave were going for over $300 plus on eBay, be sure to grab one if you think youd want one.

$200 to go with one game that currently has 6 fighters? and that's supposedly a "deal" lol. (no offense to OP)

Or do what I do, and use the cronusmax controller adapter to play with a 360 controller or fight stick on the XB1. Beats paying this price but for people who want to buy and flip it later it might be a deal idk.

Really? Any stick will work? Tell me more. What is the best setup? I want one for KI but refuse to buy this one since everyone says it is cheaply made and only worth it at about $80 or less.

Where does "everyone" say that...reviews of this fight stick are excellent...and considering they hit 400 on ebay obviously plenty of people want it...it's not for your typical CAG and the people ragging on the selection of fighters you can buy it for 20 and it's clearly one of the best fighters released recently, with Spinal just released the game is tons of fun

It has to be wired via usb I forgot to add that, heres the youtube video on the how to and a review with KI

and a fightstick.

CronusMax

 

I have used this adapter for my xb1 to use my razer sabertooth controller for bf4 and ghosts. I also use the adapter on ps3 for bf4 to switch the L1& R1 and play with the triggers instead.

 

I bought it from a certified seller on ebay for 50, I love it though.

I've really been considering the CronusMax, but the previous version was banned from tournament use due to some USB issue where it could cause your opponent to drop inputs. If I were to buy this and have it banned, I'd be quite upset.

It's a great stick and if you are a serious fighter, worth it. I'm on the fence tho. I'm loving KI, but I'm not that much of a fighter fan.

it's not for your typical CAG...


That pretty much sums up why I never (well, more like rarely) post arcade stick threads in this forum...Too many CAG'ers ragging on something they don't understand (in this case, cost of a recently released arcade stick) since this is for serious fighting game fans. You're better off posting this in the deals thread of the trading outlet on SRK. If I had an XB1 then KI would be the first game I'd get along with the Madcatz stick. And yes, these were selling for $300+ on eBay.

As far as the CronusMax, I'd hold off on it until there's confirmation whether or not it actually is frying the XB1's USB port (forgot where I read this).

Love me some arcade sticks!

I'd buy the thing if it werent 200 fucking dollars and for a console that has no other current fighters and will likely not be receiving as many as PS4 does.

I'm sure they will get the same big name fighters (SF, DOA, Tekken, Soul Cal, etc). The only fighters that were exclusive to the PS3 were ones that were specifically niche Japanese fighters (fighters like Aquapazza).

BlazBlue seems like it might be leaning toward PS3 exclusivity. Chrono Phantasma is exclusive (And might mean the same for some of Aksys other niche stuff)

Yeah those all fall under the niche Japanese titles which I definitely agree they are most likely to stay exclusive to the ps4 since it will be the go to console in Japan. The original BlazBlue and of course Persona 4 Arena made it onto the Xbox 360 though.
