Worth getting if you missed out on the cheaper one for £20 as thats normally about this price.

I have read the websites that tell you the difference between these, but does anyone who is not a crazy gamer with more money than friends actually used these and can say what the difference is in real life to casual gamers?

Its good and def worth £65 ... That said i opted for the £20 one from GAME, couldnt jusity buying one for my PS3. If you dont have one already, and have a PC then get it. MAME et al is alot sweeter using it. Compared to the cheaper sticks the stick/buttons are far less `clicky` and smoother to control. It should be far more durable too.

EDIT: Scrub that having read the issues with the SE edition ive cancelled that and got this instead. I now have one for the 360 and for the PS3 and i can use them both for 2 player MAME sessions. Although i only have tekken 5 on the PS3, i should be able to use this for my PS2 games on the PS3.

Good deal for a top quality arcade stick. Heat added.

Just think it's worth mentioning that madcatz (the makers of these fight sticks) plan on making a "Round 2" set of fight sticks upon the release of Super Street Fighter 4 so perhaps Game are trying to clear old stock now or (again perhaps) the price of these will go lower once the "Round 2" sticks come out.

----
Edit: Looks like they did and already have been distributed to some gaming journalists to review.

Also for those who do end up buying this may want to consider buying a "Sanwa GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Plate" - this is because out of the box the joystick may feel stiff/boxed.

This is due to the plate under the joystick being a square rather than a octagon thus pulling moves may seem difficult and different to a normal arcade stick (annoying to those who paid full price at the time of release no?) - What the new plate does is basically allow easier 8 point joystick movement.

Obviously read up before considering investing money and time modding your arcade stick for it will void your warranty (although madcatz did design the stick to allow for easy modding apparently).

I've been looking at the for quite a while (which is why I was so chuffed with the deals going on today - nearly bought last week!). I am still amazed that a £70 stick could have poor quality buttons and to get decent buttons you need to spend over £100 without these great deals. If anyone else has used both and got any useful info it might help out a lot of people here.

Do the actual arcade machines have a square or octagonal gate? Is there really a difference to a casual gamer with Sanwa buttons? If you upgraded the £20 fight stick with Sanwa buttons, would this be the same as this tournament stick?

EDIT

Anyone considering making upgrades to fight stick, a good web site seems to be http://www.gremlinsolutions.co.uk/ordersanwapushbuttons.php for buying the top rated Sanwa buttons. Has anyone done this and can recommend doing so? Buttons are under £2 a buttong.

You can already buy the round 2 edition from £120 though (it was released in January). As far as i am aware its exactly the same stick only with a different face plate. Also i have had no problems with the square plate. My old Hori stick is octagonal and i wouldnt say its a big issue. But as you say its a breeze to change for a octagonal one if you want.

Really? Had no idea! :oops:
If the Round 2 stick has no internal difference whatsoever then what a rip-off, certainly makes this deal even that more hotter.

I guess having a square or octagonal plate is a personal preference - personally I would invest in getting an octagonal plate (that is, if I had the money to get the TE fight stick to begin with :p).

Western cabinets have octagonal whereas Japanese cabinets have the square gates. But then, western cabinets also usually have a bat handle joystick rather than a ball top handle. Depends how far you want to mod. :whistling:

I have Sanwa joystick and happ buttons, i;ve yet to put the stick together, the price can add up fast when you consider all the bits, bit less if you can bucher an old controller, but thats not really easy ccmpared to buying a pac adapter --- but that really bumps the price up - to you might as well buy a fully made stick.
Then you need to make the box and holes... there are plenty of plans an advice out there if you have to motivation to do it though.

You can also retrofit one of these or cheaper with Sanwa parts now or later, check around of the mods people have done to sticks to see how easy it is.

Oh and I vouch for Gremlin, they are a good company

I'm very tempted by it but not really got space, got the cheaper one from game last year for £69.99 and not really used it much.
