Don’t waist your money, if you are buying a cheap/budget stick then it should be for the frame/box. You can mod everything else if funds are that tight, new buttons/new stick and gate etc. But in all honesty you’ll want to pay a premium for a stick if you are really a fg fan. Something that has been specifically made so anyone can swap out parts is what you want, stock parts in such products are usually decent but they will degrade with heavy use. Then you can really experiment, a bat stick and concave buttons or those new soft touch silent buttons or even the light up buttons. Don’t buy this stick unless it’s for a toddler.
Anybody got 1 of these and can confirm how long the cable is?
its madcatz.... go for it. thier sticks are great and this is an entry level stick, i would always recommend trying to go for a cheaper stick first of all to even see if you like it. nothing would be worse than paying £100+ for something you dont even like. sticks also dont make you better at the game so it really does take time. some things will be easier though (i could never do a technique called FADC in street fighter 4 until i got a stick) sames goes for anyone else reading this comment, this is a great entry level stick and if you decide you want a bigger one then sell this one and get it
Buy a brook converter. They come in different types for which console you are converting from and to. They're easy to set up and are tournament legal. As for the Alpha stick, it's alright if you just wanna see what using a fightstick is like. The quality of the stick and buttons aren't great, and it can't be properly modded. If you want to take things further then you'd need a better fightstick. If you want an entry level option there's the Venom. It's about £70, the in-situ stick and buttons are okay, but it's great and straightforward for modding. Beyond that you'd be looking at more expensive options by, for example, Hori (not the mini one), Qanba, and Razer.
Vewlix style design???? What a load of rubbish as it’s nothing like a Vewlix control panel.
