    Hey MarkMan:

    If I have the EX2 and just swap the butons out for SANWA types, that going to be best in the long haul cause as much as I want that new 360 stick, my monies are going elsewhere for the time being.

  2. MarkMan says:

    @ Downplay

    That is definitely a good alternative. You should always go with what you feel most comfortable with… price wise and preference.

    I’m a sucker for sticks, so I get every one that comes out. lol.

  3. Downplay says:

    Haha. I’d post up my questions to ya from GAF but I banned myself for a month there. Trying to stay MGS4 clean :) But thanks for the input! Gonna order me up some buttons then. Gotta be ready for Soul Calibur IV.

    Someone needs to tell play-asia that the Orange HRAP1 is not a PS3 stick, it’s a PS2 stick

    Not really. Only way to find out is to do yourself ;) Mod at your own risk.

  7. Downplay says:

    Oh hey MarkMan, had one last question I forgot to ask ya. Are the 360 EX2 buttons soldered in? Or are they snapable for easy replacement?

  8. MarkMan says:

    @ Downplay

    The 360 EX2 buttons are soldered directly to the PCB, unfortunately.


    You have the Tekken anniversary stick? If so, changing the buttons is a bitch to do on those. Mainly because the way the buttons are soldered in and taking the buttons out of the top control panel plating. If you have the patience it is definitely possible.

  9. Downplay says:

    Aw hell. That is something I don’t know how to do plus I don’t have the equipment. Oh well. Guess I’ll get me a PRO EX cause I already have the HRAP3. That way the button change out in that will be much easier for Sanwa button. Kudos!

  10. MarkMan says:

    If you wanna get an idea of how to do it Downplay, check this link out:


  11. Downplay says:

    Yeah I’ve checked that out. I don’t have any way of a getting something to solder that out or anything. Plus I really dig the HRAP3 so having something exactly the same with my 360 is ideal.

  12. Downplay says:

    It’ll be worth the money and investment. I just need to save up for the next month plus get in on the pre-order from Play-Asia. They make you play full for pre-orders or charge when the item is available the dya of and ships?

  21. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
