It's really up to you as far as which one is better, because no one can say for sure that stick>pad or pad>stick. As far as being dual compatible yes you can find sticks that work for PC/XBOX/PS3. Best brands is also another matter of opinion. I paid $120 for my stick and I think it was well worth the price. Most Eightarc sticks are dual compatible, not sure of any other brands that are. Here are some amazon links for some reasonably prices arcade sticks from Madcatz, Hori and Eightarc.

Hori VX-SA Kai is what I currently use. It is an excellent stick that comes in a square gate (as with most). Retails for $130-140 USD although sales happen quite often.

Pros include coming stock with full high quality Sanwa parts, as well as a large area to play on. Also comes with a rubbery bottom that reduces the chance that your stick will move while you use it. The cord is VERY long, and is plug and play compatible with the PC as well as the Xbox 360.

The only con I have for the stick is that the buttons are VERY sensitive. It registers a button press as soon as the button is depressed (1/5th of the way down) and while others may prefer these very sensitive buttons I would prefer if they would activate a little further down the button press, personally speaking.

I have an X-Arcade Tank Stick and I'm mostly satisfied with it, but that's not to say I don't have issues with it.

The joysticks are a bit flaky. I've had to open the case up a couple of times to adjust the throw angle of the switch rods so that I wasn't getting misfired directions. The quality of the sticks also feel much less than my Neo-Geo MVS.

My other issue is that playing more than 10-15 minutes, my right hand will cramp from the layout of the buttons.

A couple months ago, I bought an arcade stick for my Xbox 360: http://www.amazon.com/Real-Arcade-Pro-VX-Xbox-360/dp/B0041S9U8A

This has been my first exposure to Japanese-style arcade controls and it's an amazing difference. I don't get hand cramps from the buttons because their layout is contoured to match the curve of your hand. The joystick feels very obviously superior to the X-Arcade's and I feel like I play better using it. The buttons are extremely responsive and take very little pressure to activate.

I'm sure it's diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks as far as control layouts go, but when you buy the X-Arcade product, you're pretty locked down in the experience you're going to get from it, from the look of the whole product to the controls to their positioning. That's a benefit in some ways, because it allows products like the Xtension Arcade Pedestal (which I use) to exist for those of us without any woodworking skills: http://www.recroommasters.com/Xtension_Arcade_Pedestal_Arcade_Cabinet_p/rm-xt-ped.htm

What would be great is if X-Arcade sold a controller that used panels like the MadCatz Fightsticks so that there would be some real customization options. (see http://www.tek-innovations.com/arthobbies/index.cfm?loc=products&cat=11 )

I'd wait for the Madcatz deal. That stick doesn't look bad and the price isn't too bad either but (this is just personal opinion) it has a bat-top stick and the button layout is arched, which I dislike. If both of those issues are fine with you, go ahead and get it. $90 is not bad at all for a stick, considering even a typical Hori stick will cost you $40-50 more. Again, I have no first hand experience with the Injustice fight stick, so it may well be solid, but I've never had a problem with Hori or Madcatz.

well i'd recomend you, since you want something under 100€, to go and buy a hori Real arcade Pro from amazon spain or amazon uk it's the stick I have now, it works flawlessly and it's perfect for a long term usage (sanwa FTW). my experience with a cheap stick (tatsunoko vs capcom fightstick for wii) was not good because Standard editions don't have good parts so these don't last long and a year later you end up buying another one...and that's not good (for me at least). if you want something cheaper you can get a brawl stick or mayflash stick (I don't really recomend these but there are really good players that use them :P). at the end it depends on how much you take care of your stick (my wii stick still works with a re-soldered cable and a few new buttons, but my bluetooth adapter doesn't so I bought a wired stick for pc :P)

These are the sticks I have. About the same look as the 3rd one you linked but only 120$ instead. It works great on PC and 360.

u/LamanamanumiReborn · 1 pointr/GameSale

i got one of these

that I'm looking to move.

Let me know if interested and if you are, let me know your zip code so I can come up with a price shipped

Yeah if you really like them then by all means, but from what I've heard you had to basically fist those big clunky joysticks to make the inputs go properly. I think it will suck at first but after a little bit of an adjustment you will really like the newer stuff.

If you're hell bent on keeping that kind of joystick look into changing the .ini file to interpret the stick as an xbox controller, I'm not sure how it would work with that.

If you're looking at new sticks I'd suggest one of these:

Real Arcade Pro

TE Fight Stick (#1 choice, I've used both and they're great, but everyone has a TE and there's a reason.)

I see these are out of stock but this store has a deal for 10% off if you use coupon code CROSSCOUNTER and their prices are reasonable. So check for any of them being in stock. Amazon has them listed for like $300 which is ridiculous.

HRAP VX: link

Mad Cats TE. PS3's are in stock, 360's are not. You can also get them from the Mad Catz store online. Link

Finally, if you want both ps3 and 360 capability, you're out of luck for mass-produced sticks. There is the Qanba QRAF, link. They are very nice, and I've seen and played with a couple. I like them.

Finally, there's customs, but those can be upwards of 300 dollars.
