I had to pick one up. Thanks OP, btw those 29.99 Zelda Link statues are oversrocked at my GS. I almost caved and got one, but I was strong enough to resist "this time"...

You just saved me $30. Made me remember that I had a MC SF4 pad in the closet. Plugged it in and it seems to work perfectly.

No problem man i feel madcatz are always trying to rip consumers off with thier ovepriced pads and sticks.

29.97 at Amazon just find it under other sellers since they seem to have another seller in the main page.

I think I'm gonna get this. Was tempted to go for a new SFV fightstick instead, but this is a lot easier on the wallet, less guilt-inducing.

Just picked one up today @ GameStop. I bought the FC3 Pro a few years ago, but the d-pad on that one broke after i dropped it one too many times. The FC4 is almost exactly the same thing, just with PS4 functionality included.

 

One important difference I'm seeing, unless I'm mistaken, is that the toggle functionality now makes the original L shoulders into L3 and R3. The R1 and R2 on the face still become L1 and L2, so it's still possible to move all the buttons for your right hand. Unfortunately it means the physical L shoulders are useless in this mode unless the game lets you register L3/R3 as inputs. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

I bought this one today and I'll be getting the Madcatz as well.  Want to see which one is better but I hope some day, someone just makes a freaking regular 6 button controller like the Saturn.  Don't understand all this one side being longer than the other, giant buttons, and etc.  Just make a regular freaking 6 button controller, geez.  I still have my PS2 Saturn pad that I use on my PS3, sadly it doesn't work on a PS4 with the adapter.  I have the MK 6 button controller too but that one is built like crap.  Other than that, looking forward to using these two pads. 

Years ago there was an official Sega Saturn USB pad for PC, and it also worked for the PS3. Looking on Ebay, they offer tons of knock offs, but the official ones seem to be rather high in price, but worth looking around for one at a decent price if needed. It was a kick ass pad, no doubt.

 

EDIT: The Capcom Fighting Soldier for the SNES was another great six button pad that was designed by the makers for Street Fighter specifically.

The ones on eBay weren't official either despite looking authentic. The real ones were only produced in limited quantities but there were dozens of sellers that had hundreds of units. They all disappeared overnight, which means someone provided proof of copyright infringement and had them taken down.

Wish I could find one of these locally so I could use a PowerUp Rewards cert. Ah well.

I bought mine so long ago, I don't remember where I got it, it was either Play-Asia, or Ebay I'm sure. If it is an "unofficial" one, it's damn good, as it looks, feels, and plays just as well as any of the Saturn Pads I've owned in the past.

Still seeing a couple around here locally, but they are definitely moving at this price. I don't think the price will go lower at Gamestop. Maybe Amazon later down the road. I only got one but I'm considering going back for a second one so the couch co-op is fair to my SF playing buddies.

This was a good use of the $5 Amazon credit from awhile ago.

Another good 6 button layout pad is the Fight Pad by PDP. They can still be gotten rather cheap, and for me personally, it was one of the best pads I ever used due to the "micro-switch" design.

 

A lot of the negative reviews come from quality control issues, but the one I had for the 360 worked great.

Saturn pad is the best for 2d fighters due to circular d-pad design. I hate + design.

Ended up grabbing one since I got a ton of GS credit today, if I don't like it I'll just make up an excuse to return it.

Thanks to the circular D-Pad I've been rocking my Mad Catz SFIV Fightpad for years. Surprisingly good, considering it came bundled with my copy of SFIV.

I really like those pads. I hold the right side more like a traditional arcade setup, with my index, middle and ring finger all on the face buttons at once. Took a little while to get used to, but once I got the hang of it I couldn't imagine going back to a regular controller.

Actually it looks like Hori did release a Fighting Commander fightpad last month with a better design:

Sounds like it was released in Japan only for now, but Play-Asia is selling them for $29.99 and it says PC/PS3/PS4 on the description.  Of course the cheapest shipping option is like $8-9 I think, but I like this design more so I may end up ordering this instead (unless of course it somehow doesn't work on American PS3's and PS4's).

If the dpad is good, this looks like it would make a great pc controller for older games

Do they make one for the Xbox consoles besides the flawed Mortal Kombat one? I need one with 6 face buttons for Killer Instinct. In for one for the Sony consoles though. Thanks OP.

People seem to say this is pretty good for games like street fighter, is it any good for 3d fighters like dead or alive?

Nope the Hori FC pads are Sony exclusive.

If you like using the d-pad instead of the analog stick to play fighting games, then this should be fine assuming you don't mind having two additional face buttons. DOA doesn't really need six face buttons, it's really up to you if you don't like the standard PS3/4 or Xbox 360/One controllers.

Thanks. MS sucks this gen. They have nothing, not even controllers. Guess I have to wait for them to get KI on PC in order to use my various 360 controllers and PS3/PS4 pads.

I ended up returning mine. The D-Pad had some weird resistance when I pushed the top and right buttons, which was annoying. And also whenever I rotated the D-Pad it literally required you to basically mash the button down full force for it to register, which was of course unplayable for any fighting game.

 

I'll probably end up getting one of the new SFV ones if the reviews are good

I own one and I will say it's great for 2D fighters but not 3D. And it works quite well on PS3 as well as PS4. I have personally tested it on Darkstakers Resurrection, Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition and Chaos Code on PS3 along with the PS2 version of Capcom vs SNK 2 from PSN. It only made Dead or Alive 2 more cumbersome.
