This is for the USB controller version of the X-Arcade Tankstick. This is about as low as the price normally goes. It includes the Maximus Arcade Bundle front-end, which according to the website is usually $25.

Sale lasts another 10 days. Shipping for me was $19.99.

There are better controllers for hardcore fighting game enthusiasts, but you can easily swap the installed joystick and have a StreetFighter style controller for a good price. Here [youtube.com] is a video showing how to do it.

Already have the non-trackball version and it's pretty great for the authentic arcade experience. Would love a tankstick but mine just won't break Big Grin

Granted I think it's easier to get the parts needed for a DIY cabinet or similar these days than it was when I bought mine but if you just want a 2P arcade-style setup, hard to go wrong with this (though I don't know how well the trackball performs).

Forgot to mention the buttons and controller are junk so you need to swap them as well

Must resist. I've wanted to build a mame machine for a long time. This along with a Raspberry makes it real easy...

You can mod this with a spinner wheel combo too. You have to use a hole from one of the buttons, or drill a new one. No big deal.

Me too, any good website with how-to's? Don't need a cabinet, just a little pc arcade box that I can plug into the tv and play.
