KE is tempting if only because I'm far more used to circular gates (and bat tops but that's not as big of a deal)...already have a Soul Edition stick I don't use that much though...

Thank you for the kind words! I miss CAG. I used to troll/frequent these forums a lot, but now I just lurk (still check every day though)!

If you'd like more information on the KE, I wrote up an article and put a video together here:

I think it's up the the developers to provide support for third party controllers.  There's nothing really stopping Capcom, for example, from providing the code within the game to support it.  Still, it would be nice to see if the top selling "next-gen" console will officially get a stick of its own.

What a choice. The big one looks tempting, but the smaller one has something different.

Check this out if you want backwards compatibility with your fight sticks or controllers.  Mine is cronusmax, but the website changed to controllermax for some reason.  I have one and it works well.  Much better than forking over another $200 if you already own a great stick.  Sucks that Sony and MS won't just let you use the old ones even if they would have reduced functionality with chat or whatever - you can still hit all of the buttons and make them work.

I like the cabinet of the TE, not a huge fan of the SE cabinet which is what the KE version has. It is considerably smaller than the TE but I am intrigued about the Korean stick internals.

I understand these are getting cleared out because the generation is about over, but... If I'm getting a TE that I'm hoping to eventually use on the PS4/X1, am I better off getting the 360 version for compatibility? Or is it too early to call?

I'm considering buying the prostick with the cronusmax.

Do you get any noticeable lag with it? I was considering just using the ps360+ till a new pcb comes out for ps4.

Man I've been avoiding this thread. But I couldn't resist much longer.  I caved in and ordered the KI TE2. I guess I'm not a CAG after all.  :wall:

As mentioned above, it is up to the developer to include compatibility with legacy hardware, not us. I would be thrilled if our old stick worked with future PS4 titles, though!

If you want to eventually mod to PS4 or X1 only, it won't matter. If you want to dual mod for compatibility with both X1 and PS4, then 360 is the way to go.

Getting what you like > than being CAG sometimes. Thanks for your support. It's an amazing product and we worked really hard on it. A lot of people think it's just a box with stick/buttons, but it is way more than that this time around. If you want more information on how cool the product can be, please check this link:

Ok, thanks for the reply Markman. I'll agonize over my fightstick buying decision as usual.

Can no one else place a order?
I keep getting "We were unable to authorize this purchase with the credit card infomation given. Please go back and check the accuracy of the information provided."

 

 

 

Check my billing + credit info quite few times and I have enough money on my account it seems.

Sorry to hear about issues placing an order through the site. Usually when those notices come up it's due to the billing/shipping address information. You may also want to try a different browser just in case.

I'm just going to wait a day to see if it resolves itself, hopefully I won't miss this great deal!

 

Thanks for the quick reply MarkMan!

Final day for the sale.  A friend of mine ordered one over the weekend with his tax refund money, he's dying to get it in the mail.  Funny thing, he found the MadCatz $99 promo without any help from me.  You're doing something right, Madcatz!

I don't notice any lag and I love the thing.

better size vs what? The FightStick PRO is similar in size to the Q4. Also both have Sanwa parts (square gate).

The KE is different, obviously.

The parts are the same, Sanwa JLF and Sanwa OBSF-30 buttons. However the overall feel of the case and the wrist area are different. They are about the same weight wise.

Congrats! Hope you enjoy!

Thanks! Marksman. I love it. Hopefully I can get a second one soon to kick my cousins behind. There's no challenge, controller vs fightstick.
