Good PC Fight Stick?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I really want to play the new Street Fighter on my PC, but don't want to be stuck using a pad forever. I had one of those tournament edition sticks a while back, and really liked the parts in them. However i don't want to spend upwards of $100, actually around $50-$75 would be nice. I was thinking of getting a Hori except i have no idea which ones are PC compatible.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

There's always guys in this livestream throwing out good recommendations.

Head over there and ask, most of them are high skilled players and/or professionals.

I love my PS3 Virtua Stick High Grade for fighting games [its USB] I got it after the revision came out in Shinjuku whilst using up my Bic Camera points... Its not so good for shmups though so I use an old Hori fighting stick from the old xboxlarge with a converter..

Wow had to edit my original type-up.. the TE sticks have sure rose in price.. man i only payed 150$ for mine brand new... but w/e.. Yeah for the 200$ they go for, I would advise maybe building your own stick. Get a PS360 PCB [50$], Set off 6 Sanwa Buttons [15], Joystick [25] And build or buy a case. .. My stick still works like a charm and works on all consoles... But of course not everyone willing to do this but if you want to stay within like 100-150 and have a quality stick i'd say go this route.

P.S some of what i say maybe off whack as far as pricing goes heck they're might be a cheaper PCB now a days, check shoryuken.com tech talks threads for possibly more up to date estimates and suggestions.. i built mine last year.
