From reading the posts in here, it seems like this would not be a good buy if I am just looking for an input controller for playing street fighter iii with some friends (ie, something better than the xbox360 controllers)?

the game gets really old very fast when the xbox controllers don't take in the inputs the way you want, so I wanted to buy some fight sticks to make the experience better, but not more than 60 dollars... any advice is much appreciated.
These Xarcade sticks are for quick 30 minutes gamers. Any longer, then you'll get blister or cut on your fingers from the controller. Customize one if you're more of a hardcore gamer. With that being said.....just ordered two sets just for future use nod

This thing? [madcatz.com]

It's a completely different product niche. And the price of those things for one player is the price of a tankstick.
yes i understand its cheap, but u wont enjoy using it. if you decide to ever play fighting game you will understand why.

nice setup. where do you buy your box and controller. can you give more detail on how to build the one you just have? do you just buy a cheap box and buy a controller? please advise i want to build one myself with all the app. do you use a computer to host the game and use mame? please advise again Smilie


thanks thanks
Yes it is a computer for a host, I bought most of the stuff from ebay and groovygamegear.com all of the templates etc I found on arcadecontrols.com and the people there are very helpful. The arcade panel is made of MDF, I cut it out and used a router to shape it. tons of wiring under the panel, it was very time consuming but worth it. I use Gamex as my front end. The controls are all linked to a device called a keywiz from groovy game gear

The buttons are all labeled to work with Gamex

I even added buttons on the side for the pinball games

Really nice to see old retro Arcade joysticks like this are still in and creating excitement amongst the fans. I keep thinking MAME is dead or everyone would rather be playing on their smartphones, ipod touchs, tablets, PCs, consoles, or handhelds.

Wow what a great deal. Back when I was in college and sharing an apartment with several gaming friends we owned one of these exact units and played the hell out of it on a variety of games and consoles (you can get adapters I think for every console out there at this point, though some take a bit of tinkering and a rats nest of cords to get to play nicely with each other).

It was built like a tank as far as durability goes. The only real downside is that it can be slightly awkward to be that close to some of the umm... larger... people you may want to game with.

Upon seeing this deal I hopped over to their website to see if a similar deal existed on the "single" version of this unit. I already own one "single" myself and wouldn't mind having a matched set for those gaming night get togethers. It would be much nicer than being required to share personal space as much as the double unit does (despite the double being quite large there are limits to how close I want to be to people). No dice though, not even listed for sale at the moment.

As a side note, as others have mentioned, these are extremely mod-able. Very easy to take apart and everything is quite accessible and set up to easily swap out switches or anything else you want to customize inside the unit. I've taken my single apart and put it back together with this or that component changed several times with no troubles..
