The limited edition Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition FightStick, sold out on Amazon, Play, ShopTo, etc.

This site had this up before but for the full £149.99 retail price, it also had the PS3 version up for the same price as this deal - £99.99. Use attached voucher for 2% off making it £97.99.

The PS3 version is still sold out and has been removed from the site. Not sure how many Xbox 360 units they have now but I suspect it's not many so be quick if you're going to buy!....

I take it this doesnt even come with the game?
#2
No, it doesn't come with the game.

The RRP for this stick is £149.99 and it's sold out pretty much everywhere, this deal is £99.99 and people are voting it cold?

If £99.99 is too much for someone to spend on a joystick that's fine - but vote based on the deal rather than your own skewed perspective of value please?

Dunno why I bothered even posting it.... I'll just post it around on some forums instead where they might actually appreciate it.
#3
But I mean, what is it? And why is it just shy of £100?

In fairness to the op, it is a decent saving off the ridiculous RRP...but £100 still for a arcade stick manufactured by "mad catz" is madness, remember having a mad catz arcade stick for FREE on the old Xbox 1 with purchases of Halo 2 at Toys R Us......

Good for those that must have the hype that is Street Fighter IV now this minute, makes me wonder just how much this price will sink come May once all this hype over the game is over.
#5
Who on earth is voting this cold. They need a slap:-D

This is the cheapest I've seen anywhere, but has anyone used power play before?
#6
It's a premium joystick that's made with the same quality components as arcade machines. MadCatz are making it but it has been designed to a spec given to them by "arcade fighting game professionals". If anyone wants more validation of its quality they can read the following: http://www.capcom-unity.com/totoroslayer/blog/2009/01/12/the_new_king_of_sticks

Why is it £100? Because that's the price the market is willing to bear I guess. Why are Ferraris £100k+ when they probably cost less than 1/2 that to make?

Sorry if I sound antsy but this deal is for a third off the RRP, the price incidentally Amazon were selling it for (and who are now sold out), and apparently it's cold because people have decided "£100 is too much to pay for a joystick".

Shame the PS3 version is not there :(

This is hot hot hot.

This is a limited edition product, the company making them has said they intend to fill pre-orders and that's it. It was originally supposed to be 3000 units worldwide but apparently they've had pre-orders "many, many times that amount" - if reports are to be believed. Either way it's sold out pretty much everywhere worldwide.

Cool, then after that I guess they will just manufacture them without the Street Figher logo-ing or people that want the arcade quality sticks will build them, seeing that the innards are the same.

Would be interesting looking at how much one of these would cost to build yourself against the cost of buying one made up to see the true reflection of value.

No doubt there will be many a modding forum shortly...will look with interest, for now even at £99.99 too much for me to spend on a decent fighting stick for sure.

O wait. That was the PS3 version

That's the PS3 version, which has expired.

Your probably looking at £60-90 depending on what material you use.

I ordered the PS3 version from them (from the deal that has now expired), my first order with them... emailed their sales/support dept and got a pretty prompt reply telling me that they had removed the PS3 version from the site because they had filled their allocation.

So, if that is to be believed at least they're not just taking orders blindly for stock they've never been promised.

PowerPlay are fine. :) But be warned they have a habbit of taking the money straight away for pre-orders.

But that was an absurd guesstimating if you know how to make such things.
It is irrelevant anyway.

Yes but this is a chance to own a piece of the Arcade, This is high quality stuff they got in these sticks, all Sanwa parts, Exactly like the SF4 arcade Cabinets, and you can even customise the buttons and stick.

Its all good:-D

Yeah, I understand that and dont understand why people seem to be voting my comments cold lol....what I am saying is, these parts can be bought separately and at the price of £99 if you compare it to the quality of parts involved I stated its a pretty good deal.

However for modders, that can buy the very same parts, and like to customise they can do exactly the same for the same price or less, and have these working not strictly on one machine, such as PS3 or Xbox 360..

Cold from me.

Joysticks are rubbish. We used to use them in the 80s and early 90s just because they were the only viable means of building a controller into an arcade machine. They were tough, cheap, durable, and punters couldn't steal them. They'd be a dead format by now if not for flight sims. Playing any sort of game with a joystick is lousy. Too slow and cumbersome to move your arm or your wrist than just your thumb. So it might be cool to have this stick, but you'll lose if you try playing with it.

Before you lay down the cash, I'd strongly recommend you drop £2 on trying a game with a stick in an arcade. You'll soon change your mind.

May I ask what you recommend for playing any fighting games then? When a joypad doesnt come close?

How little you know! :roll:

Nothing matches the accuracy of obtaining diagonals in games than microswitches, has been the same way since the 80s (best joysticks of the time such as zipstik and competition pro used micro switches), D pads never are as accurate, and most modern games akin to being controlled with analogue sticks do not require the level of accuracy needed in fighting or other old skool arcade games.

£60-£90? Not even close.

If you wanted to build one yourself, it'd be easy and cheap enough. All you'd need would be an Xbox 360 control pad, a hammer with which to crack it open, six buttons (could probably take these from an old joystick), a sturdy chunk of wood, an aluminium face plate, and a decal. Pad would be £17, buttons no more than a couple of quid, wood and alumium free from a skip or about £5 otherwise, few more quid for wires and glue and stuff, a quid for a suitaby sized photo printout, and you've spent £20-£25 in total. I doubt the Madcatz people are spending more than a tenner putting them together.

Ever built a mame arcade cabinet, you would soon realise that quality microswitches and steel shafted joysticks are not quite as cheap as you are stating, really think you need to read up a bit more before you post what you think you know is fact!

Heres a starting point

And here is Sanwa parts used in SF arcade boards if you really want to price up like for like

You're either trolling or retarded.

Take your pick gents!


Misinformed and in need of a little education is the polite term I would use...perhaps those links I gave out may enlighten him that whilst I am sure these could be built cheaper (and rewarding to do so), they would still work out at some considerable cost building your own arcade stick.

Thanks for the heads up.
#31
He's not wrong about the production cost being less than £10 though. But I supose the same is true of most thing's these days.

Well assuming obviously they would get the parts trade, even then

http://www.gremlinsolutions.co.uk/sanwa.php

I reckon its got to cost them £20-30 to manufacture one of these at trade prices.
#33
Anyone who is mistakenly voting this cold, enter the words 'fightstick tournament' into ebay and check out how much they are selling for there. This is an incredibly good price for an uber joystick.

Good find OP, much heat added :thumbsup:

The joystick and buttons would prob cost around £35 then you would need a xbox360 controller to hack, headphone jack, wood, glue, wire, terminals, acrylic top, print out art work once you add all that up it dosn't seem so bad.

EXACTLY!! Although proper Sawna parts are circa £25 (just had a look on the bay, £49 delivered for 2 sticks and 12 buttons so halve that) and add in the xbox controller (think these joysticks are wirless) I doubt you could build for under £60

Not voting, although I certainly wouldn't pay £100 for a joystick :w00t:
