Preorders for SF IV sticks/pads at the official MadCatz UK site are back up. All TE 360 sticks are gone, but everything else is available.

You're probably better preordering from MadCatz than anywhere else. Especially if you want your stick/pad on release date.

Sorry! I actually put in 0 for the price amount. A mod must have changed it to £34!!!

Seriously.

Also, it's not cold. Don't be a dick.

any need for that, ??

the skins, can be brought from amazon cheaper and are in stock,, and the pads are still available for £25.98 on the 360 at amazon....

the sticks are RRP. so not exactly hot, this is more of an alert than a deal!

Right.

This is a chance to preorder directly from Mad Catz UK distributor.

There are many websites still claiming preorders that they won't be able to fill until the next manufacturing run (we're talking at least 2 months).

Of course you can buy them cheaper from other places, but you can be sure that you won't get a stick or a pad until months after 20th February release date.

3000 initial sticks were made. Globally. So for someone out there to get a ps3 TE stick, I think this is a pretty good 'heads up' for people.

14th January.

"Peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz has said it will struggle to meet UK demand for the official FightStick: Tournament Edition for Street Fighter IV.

In a statement issued yesterday evening, the firm said it would be "working hard to meet day one shipments" but "can not guarantee that every customer wishing to purchase this premium product will be able to...on the first day of release".

Instead, Mad Catz is advising UK gamers to keep their eyes on its online store this afternoon when it will be taking "strictly limited pre-orders". "Orders on the store will be fulfilled strictly on a first come first serve basis and will only be available for purchase and delivery to mainland UK customers," it said.
