    Greetings from Norway! You have a lot of Tekken and SDTekken fans here in the cold North as well!

    Great initiative! I am going to enter:-)

    Also, I have some questions about fighting sticks in general. Where can I post that?

  9. TommyD says:

    Thanks for setting this up MM!

    By the way, the podcast was excellent and informative! I’ve forwarded it to multiple friends that have shown interest lately in Tekken :)

    Anyways, lookin’ forward to the next episode and thanks again for all the hard work!

  10. Hal says:

    And what if ps3 owners win a xbox360 prize (and otherwise)? :P
    Anyway I hope they’re shipping to Croatia :D

    • MarkMan says:

      We will pick 3 winners in order. I will then communicate/ask which prize they prefer. Etc.

      • crazy skip says:

        theres a problem with that though.. what if 2 or all 3 of them own ps3.. 2/3 sticks are for xbox… what happens then?

      • MarkMan says:

        Well, that’s not a problem for me, it is a problem for them. :(

        So yea. That would suck. But the prizes have already been decided.

      • crazy skip says:

        have you got both xbox and ps3 stick bundles or something?.. i cant imagine buying 4 sticks (was it? or stick bundles?) like what you said in the podcast..

      • MarkMan says:

        I actually preordered 6 of them :x

        4 at GameStop and 2 at Amazon lol.

        But, well. Let me explain, and no one jump at me weird.

        I have 4 PS3s and 4 Xbox 360s. Make sense?

      • Hal says:

        huh 8 of em?!

        wow I wanna be your boyfriend… lol

      • crazy skip says:

        wow 8 consoles in total.. and exactly what do you plan on doing with the rest of the 6 that are not being used? its just being put in display.. that would be cool as!

        but 6! i’ll give you props for that MarkMan..

  11. DrBhup666 says:

    Hi Markman!

    Greetings from Norway! SDTekken is a very popular site here in Norway among some hardcore Tekkies!

    Thanks for setting up this great contest!

    (I can’t believe people are already bitching about why the prizes are 2/3 X360 and not PS3 and what will happen if people with different console wins.. etc etc.)

    Come on, you guys! This is a great thing from SDTEKKEN, stop the crazy questions and just be thankful for this opportunity!

    Well, on to my question:

    Because og TEKKEN 6m I want a new fighting stick. I don’t want to mod or something.

    I was wondering which stick you recommend for me most:

    1. MadCatz Street Fighter IV Tournament Edition or

    2. Hori Real Arcade PRO 3 SA?

    I have a PS3 and I can get both sticks brand new. Money is not an issue, I want the best stick available. Both products use Sanwa parts on the stick and on the buttons so I am not sure which one is the best for me.

    I think I would like a heavy stick with good build-quality and that also has a lot of space to rest your hands and writs on.

    By the way, what are your thoughts about the wireless stick by Hori that is bundling up with Tekken 6? Do you reccomend that one? It’s the only wireless stick I’ve ever heard about. But I’m almost positive that they won’t use Sanwa og Seimitsu parts. (I bet you that stick will be a wireless Hori Fighting stick 3 or something.. because of the price.)

    Thanks for your time and effort in advance if you answer!

    • crazy skip says:

      i dont mean to bitch about 2/3 sticks etc. etc.. im just pointing out a flaw in this contest.. if i had an xbox then i wouldnt complain.. hypothetically putting if i won, i would choose the ps3..

      but the next person who gets contacted to choose the prize wants the ps3 prize as well.. that person misses out… kind sucks for them they are going to have to pick one of the xbox prizes..

      which either forces them to buy an xbox or they just put it for display (something i would not want to do with that prize pack)

    • MyOwnWorstEnemy says:

      get the hrap3 sa since it is backward compatible with ps2 games. but if you dont care about that get the sf4 te stick if you dont plan on using it on any other fighter.

      they say the bundled stick is decent but def not arcade-quality.

    SDTEKKEN ROCKS!!! [Like a Hurricane]

  13. Zell says:

    I LOVE TEKKEN 6 >=/


  14. tekkenlover says:

    markman u have 4ps3 and 4xbox???? wow why?

  15. L_Z_N says:

    Why are people complaining?? lol
    It’s a contest with no entrance free.
    and the winners will get the sticks for free. :D

    If you don’t like it.. you can sell it to a friend I guess.. And then, save that money to buy the joystick for your console. :)

  16. DeluksZ says:

    First: If somebody has an opinion it is not by any necessity a complain. Second: selling your prize is not the purpose of this contest. That is why I have a suggestion to MarkMan and the team:

    In my opinion the best way to sort the prizes out is to divide the contestants (is this a realy word?) by their console. Right now a few thousand is competiting for 3 sticks. 95% of this few thousand are PS3 users (due Tekken was exclusive on PS3 till T6). So there is a very big chance that 2 PS3 users will win the Xbox stick, which is unfair against the Xbox users I guess. And there is a slightly chance that an Xbox user will win the PS3 stick what most of the contestants aimed for. That is not really good I guess and not really fair. In my opinion you should divide the group and make separate random winners from each grp. With this method everybody will get the type of stick that he can play with, and more importantly this is only prevent PS3 users to get Xbox sticks, and Xbox users to get the PS3 stick. This method don’t lower winning chances to the stick you can actually use.

    In my opinion winning the stick over somebody who can use it and sold it over is not the purpose of this race and it should not be.

    And thanks for this generous offer, I really think all of the fans appriciate it.

  17. Iwao says:

    Awesome prizes MarkMan. I do really look forward to this one lol! :D

  18. Blind Ghost's Pimp says:

    MarkMan, you just can’t stop with the awesomeness, can you? lol – nice work hyping T6 :D

  22. Lev says:

    Would be awesome to win this! Tekken 6 doesn’t come out until November 5th in New Zealand and I don’t have any money :(

    • crazy skip says:

      you egg… it comes out nov 1 actually and im also from new zealand… if you live in auckland like i do.. go to ebgames and ask yourself…

      and i thought you wouldve known when it comes out since youre from nz

      • Lev says:

        I do indeed live in Auckland! And according to their website (, 5 November IS the actual release date… I rang JB HiFi, guess what? 5 November. :P

      • crazy skip says:

        well you can get yours on 5th of nov

        ill be getting mine on sunday nov 1

        who says? the indian manager whatever from ebgames.. the actual manager of ebgames who wears the glasses also told.. and the new guy who seems to work at ebgames also told me nov 1..

      • crazy skip says:

        the new guy who works there also told me that they push the date back not forward… if it gets pushed forward im going to get pissed off!!

        waiting for over a week longer than everyone else is gay!!!

      • Lev says:

        Yeah well I’ll go in and ask at the EB on Queen St tomorrow…If it does actually come out on the 1st, I’ll probably dance in the store. If it’s still the 5th, I’ll punch a baby. But yeah, it is really retarded how we have to wait after everyone else :(

      • crazy skip says:

        ill ask in gfield.. the guy told me that they might push it forward to 29th but thats not really going to happen

    • Lev says:

      So I went into EB today and asked when Tekken 6 comes out.

      “November 6th”

      I died a little

  23. crazy skip says:

    just entered.. whooo!!

    • Heartless141 says:

      oh i’m wondering, what’d happen if for example 2 or even 3 winner only has PS3? how’d you chose which one to give the PS3 prizes?

      • crazy skip says:

        if you look up a bit. you’ll see one of my comments i asked a question along those lines of what you’re asking right now.. and MarkMan has already answered that for us

  24. crazy skip says:

    ok i just looked at the ebgames site and it says 5/11/2009… but thats only for the game

    not the stick bundle for ps3…

  25. Some Japanese guy says:

    Is the Fanta stick wireless? I might even buy that thing if I don’t win it.

    • crazy skip says:

      i dont think any of those sticks are wireless.. the only wireless sticks are the ones that come with the bundle pack

  26. gmbluedestiny says:

    good stuff SDTekken :)

  27. imlinked says:

    Wonderful prize selection here! Thanks Markman.

    But the sad, hard truth is that many of the true hardcore fans of the series already have the game pre-ordered for their respective system on the 27th (release-day shipping via amazon, local pickup, midnight release…)

    I myself have already ordered a PS3 copy, but was tight financially for a stick. So this would be a great opportunity.

    Since the contest has already started, I would suggest that the people who already pre-ordered and win a copy of the game, simply return it to your nearest Walmart (no receipt required) for a full refund. This will offset the cost of the game you purchased and enjoy the benefits of winning this game.

    Now as for sticks, I guess its just a luck of the draw. Any suggestions on good converters?

    • imlinked says:

      I stand corrected. Can’t return the Asia copy to walmart, for obvious reasons. Guess reselling is the only option ;/

  28. invisibleB says:

    man o man this site just gets better and better :) and now even more freebies.
    heres hoping.

  29. Dark_Chaotix says:
