Super price considering everybody else seems to have doubled their prices since Streetfighter came out.

I want 1 for the 360. Anyone?

Yep - I ordered one of these yesterday - expected delivery date is coming up as 13th-25th March. They seem to be selling on eBay for up to £50, so this is a good price.

Good review of it at IGN:

This Item is around £9.97 on the Gamestaton website but its not in stock there. I have this stick and it is decent for the price, its a similar level to the Mad Catz £70 stick (Standard Edition) but the Mad Catz stick is far easier to mod though (that's getting a bit on the hardcore side of things). I have the Street Fighter Tournament Stick as well (£150 one) and while its definatly great quality, I would only advise you purchase that one if you are a hardcore player or a serious fan of the Street Fighter series.


The Xbox 360 has a version of this stick called the Hori Fighting Stick EX2. Amazon had it last week for £39.99 but they are now out of stock

As the OP said, this is a good deal for those who want a stick but don't want to pay top dollar!

I had this stick on order from Amazon but started reading more and more reviews which said bad things about it. The only places that actually have them in stock seem to be import website such as Renchi and you are looking at $40-$50 shipping. I ended up swapping my game for the 360 version and getting a used Ltd Edition Virtua Fighter Hori EX2 from eBay. Not cheap tho!

I had street fighter on pre-order since October last year and wish I'd pre-ordered 2 fightsticks, but thought the PS3 controller was up to the job. It doent do a bad job, but nothing like street fighter should be played.

I have since ordered 2 of these from amazon, but delivery is estimated as 16th March - 23rd March

Play had the same stick £17.99 before the mad panic for the SS4 release. Shame retailers shot the damn price up so quickly.

This has been this price on Amazon for months. I bought one and then sold it for £40 and bought a dreamcast arcade stick converter instead.

Wasn't this a tenner at gamestation before?
Got my TE stick, more SF4 discussion here:
hotukdeals.com/ite…-th

Are either of these pads wireless using Bluetooth? I know some hardcore people will moan about the wireless not being as accurate - but Im not that good to worry.

wont be in stock until at least April (at the earliest) ;-) and the xbox 360 EX2 will be in stock June'ish

That stick is awful. i used it for about 1hour and my wrist was aching from the stupid sloped wrist rest on the front. luckily my hori stick dispatched the day the subsonic stock arrived despite amazon telling me i had a 3 month wait.

The Hori stick is very good and ignore amazons' delivery estimate. I order the stick at the end of January and was told my delivery estimate was March-April 09. The Hori stick arrived 6 days after i placed my order. Also to the people stating gamestation i spoke to a member of staff and they were under the impression they won't be getting anymore in stock.

I didn't know they existed at all - what a great idea!

I do believe DC sticks are invincible - just need to find it and I'm set..

Where did you get your converter from? And was it for 360 or PS3?

Totally off topic a bit, but anyone know where l can get SNES to USB adapters:?

Using SNES controller on PC is old skool!

It's called the Trio Linker II Plus and it's for the PS3 and PC. Nothing for 360, because all 360 controllers have to have these encoded chips (or something) in them and thus be sanctioned by Microsoft themselves. You used to be able to get it on Play Asia but now you have to pay around 15 quid for it on UK import sites.

Did someone say something?


I was just confirming what others have said, hopefully might stop some impatient people paying over the top prices.

Thanks clondikemike, that’s kind of expensive almost a price of a stick, lol. Think l will just hold out Hori stick or in desperation mod my old old SNES top fighter arcade stick to USB, but l a bit **** at soldering :oops:

same experience as this guy. the stick is definitely on point. got mine within a week of ordering.

tbh, if you do not play fighting games competitively on a high level the difference between a 30 quid hori and a 150 quid stick with sanwa parts is nill. there simply is not £120 worth of advantage in that stick.

just dont get a shoddy cheapo stick.

I have an old ps1 ascii stick that is pretty decent any way to get that going on the ps3? cheers

Cheers Mont - much appreciated..

I've had one of these for months. I've used it extensively with Tekken and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and now with Street Fighter 4 and I can say it's really quite a good stick. Solid build quality and reasonable components all of which are quite responsive. It's good but not fantastic so if you wanted something a bit special you are probably better off going for one of the new MadCatz sticks (I plan to purchase one when they come down in price a bit).

Must buy SF IV and mad catz controller. Cannot resist more. Must stop wife playing Beautiful Katamari. Must use Jedi powers (And keep the bills paid)

`great deal mate. Cheers!:thumbsup:

I have this stick and am not a huge fan. Find the stick itself quite tough and the buttons feel as if a lot of force is required to get a response in-game. Just ordered some Sanwa OSBF-30 buttons and a JLF stick to mod this to a 6 button stick. Can't wait to mod this as a little project

just to let people know that I ordered this from amazon on 19th feb and its just been dispatched today 26.

thats good to know mate hope its good

My Trio Linker Plus II has turned up and the config has to be changed as the buttons on the Dreamcast joystick are completely differently wired. The Start button also doesn't pause.

A = Square
B = X
C = R1
X = Circle
Y = Triangle
Z = L1

So if you want Kicks left to right on the top row and Punches left to right on the bottom row, you have to configure it like this

B button confirms or starts, X button cancels

Square = Light Punch
Triangle = Medium Kick
Cross = Medium Punch
Circle = Light Kick
L1 = Heavy Kick
L2 = Heavy Kick
R1 = Heavy Punch
R2 = Heavy Punch

Bottom line, only get one if you're used to the Dreamcast joystick and/or want to use Gamecube or PS2 controllers on the PS3 or PC

Errr... actually you have to be very good at arcade mode, because you can't press start to continue. Okay, it's useless, if you've bought one specifically for the ps3 and dreamcast I apologise, please now sell it on eBay for a profit.

do you actually read comments fully? as both myself and another poster are stating that your estimate is inaccurate.

Hi, so is the Trio Linker II Plus not worth getting?
I mean is it just the 'start' button that doesn't work? (I mean if I play online I don't really need the start button at all as long as the joystick and the punch/kick buttons all work fine..)

also is it possible to have your ps3 joypad next to you and use it to press start instead when you need to..?

I've been trying to find a converter for my DC joystick to be used in PS3 and this Trio Linker seems to be the only hope that works.. I had a joybox converter which worked with DC joypads but not the joysticks:(

Man, I ordered mine on the 21st of Feb and I have had bubkis - except my estimated delivery date has now been blanked out completely - who knows if it will come at all............?

Pretty narked off, as I refuse to play the game until I have a stick - standard pad was doing nothing for me.............
