The cheapest iv seen aswell, not for me i suppose as im not a hardcore lover of street fighter iv (although it does look amazing) , but a hot deal for people who love the game and have played it in arcades for many years.

nice one, hot

Yeah not for me either but voted hot for the deal - don't you just hate it when people vote because they don't want it/don't like it rather than the deal :roll:

Paul.

great deals. can't justify £100 but would really love to. Heat left. Does anyone know where I can pick up a Hori 360 one. Been looking for a while but could on find on ebay

is this not wireless at £150 i expect wireless, and i would be able to use it if its wireless with the PC 360 dongle.

It's the arcade quality that makes this wortwhile - while this is around 4 x the price of the cheap versions it's built to last. A hardcore player can get through a cheap stick in months, whereas this is built using arcade components and is designed to last for years.

It's not made wireless because it is for hardcore players who want that tiny performance edge of having a wired stick as it removes the milliseconds of lag associated with wireless sticks.

Extremely Hot, Pre-ordered For £97.99!

Great price! Voted hot

I had an arcade stick like this for the SNES and it really is the only way to play Street Fighter. If the xbox version came down to this price, I would snap it up in an instant!

Not confirmed if the PS3 stick will work with windows.

Also, it is wired to avoid any potential lag. This is a professional stick, made with arcade parts. It is also hot swappable for mods of stick replacement of / buttons / artwork. This is the closest stick you can buy to an actual interface on an arcade cab.

It also remains to be seen if Power Play actually have stock allocation. 3000 sticks have been made on the first initial run. I have pre-ordered mine direct from Madcatz when they were taking preorders for about 5 minutes!

Gameseek are also taking preorders and I believe amazon were. However I somehow doubt that all of this preorders will be filled for release date.

Still, good price. Hot.

how much? ouch. i didnt vote myself

Just listened to a gaming podcast and they happened to mention this stick, they said it was an excellent piece of kit... this is a great deal... but way too expensive for me... voted HOT!

Gameseek are still taking pre-orders several days later, I have strong doubts about whether they are filling a known pre-allocation or just taking orders blindly - from a cursory Google search of their reputation I suspect the latter.

I've never heard of PowerPlayDirect prior to this but I've got my pre-order in with them - I guess I'll have more confidence if they suddenly stop taking pre-orders.

Voted HOT either way - it's a lot of money for "a joystick" but it's easily the cheapest deal around.

Voted cold as there are quite a few PS3 compatible Arcade Joysticks around that include arcade grade components that are £40 cheaper - Sticks from Hori, Salubi and other manufacters will do the same job without the expensive licencing.

They're cheaper because they use cheap parts. Not ACTUAL arcade components.

Also, you shouldn't vote cold based on there are cheaper alternatives. A price reduction of £50 compared to all other places charging £150 is clearly hot.

This should change the mind of some who clearly don't know what they're talking about. This IS the best stick ever released, just ask any stick geek.

Darn, i was so close to buying the 360 version for £130. If this was for the 360 i would have gone for it.

You should be voting hot or cold based on the deal as compared to other deals for the same product.

Just because it's too expensive for you, or you can buy a completely different product which you happen to believe is "just as good", is irrelevant.

Back on topic - has anyone here actually ordered from this company before and can vouch for their service?

Haven't even heard of them until today.

You realise even Game have stopped taking preorders?

I recommend waiting till MadCatz uk get more preorders up.

Fantastic looking GAME - which looks like a must uy for any beatem FAN!!

ths cost of £99 is still expensive!! rahter save all my pennies for a FLAT!!

These are supposed to be nice sticks but a bit expensive IMO - Hori etc are almost as good for a lot less. Not voted (neutral).

As to when you would get yours. Apparently everyone is on back order as the factory didn't anticipate the demand. One UK retailer placed a backorder that was bigger than the entire initial UK allocation in total

"Back on topic - has anyone here actually ordered from this company before and can vouch for their service?"

I'v used PPD many times - had excellent service and the times I'v had to email customer services have always been rewarded with vouchers (which I'v posted on here as well). Had some great misprices such as blue dragon at £7 when it was first out.

That's good enough for me, thanks.

For the sake of £50 (1/3 of the price) I can wait a few weeks.

Incidentally GAME are still taking pre-orders, at least on their website, for the full £149.99 RRP - as are Amazon. They're either ordering to an allocation they already have or just ordering in anticipation of being able to place an order with the manufacturer - in either case I don't think we'll be any worse off having ordered from PPD (unless they don't honour pre-order pricing).

Expensive, but I cannot deny how much I would like one of these. Unfortunately utility bills come first...

Great deal if you have the pennies (jealous jealous jealous). Look forward to finding lots of HUKD members to play against on XBL though.

Expensive maybe. But dont these sticks hold there value quite well?

none now

Missed it, real gutted, have a Hori Real Arcade Pro on order from arcadeshock that never seems to want to turn up and that's roughly 130 quid, this would have been a lot better deal as I think it's got a lot better odds of turning up!

If a retailer can sell this at 100 sheets and still make money amazon can go swivel @ 150 notes.

Banned

Hori do make some good stuff - I haven't used their arcade sticks (which probably aren't as good as this one) but their snes style gamecube pad was awesome!

Well, the proof will be if & when we actually get them I guess.

The fact it is no longer available to pre-order is hopefully a good sign for those of us who have already placed an order. Odd how I can't even find the product on their website anymore, yet my order is still showing as active.

Interestingly the Xbox 360 one has disappeared from the site too, which was full price. :?

I am waiting to pre-order from here. pre orders sold out in 5 mins and they have stated that chances are the next set of oerders will not arive before the game is out . There is no way that all these orders will be honered. Not voted, but it might be worth a try but I would not count on it

I have ordered the 360 one of amazon. I reckon you will be lucky to get this from powerplay considering they have now removed it from the site! Hopefully the new game will be as good as the classics and i can hand out some thrashings on live!!!:-D

Just had this reply from PPD sales staff:

Looks promising.

^Thanks for that dude, was the stick just up on their website today? I know Amazon had them listed from Saturday. Anyone else had status on 're-ordering' from an email?
