Wow! That really looks a lot better than the HRAP3 – And I’m sure it’s better quality as well.
Is there any significant difference between this and the regular HRAP3 besides the color scheme? Not sure if its worth the extra money.
Yeah I’d like to know the same!
Are there any differences to the HRAP3 (not SA) ?
The difference is the SA have Sanwa buttons and Stick were as the HRAP only has a Sanwa Stick.
HRAP3 SA also has the same mounting plate as the HRAP 1 Ver. A and HRAP2.
I’d really like to buy one for ps3 and pc(mame), but they’re all gone. Especially in Europe. Could you please recommend hori 3 similar stick? Would do SF4 TE (I heard there will be more of them) the same job for vf4, sf4, tekken, sc4? Thanks
you’re not likely to pick one of these up new, but if you stay up on ebay or buy/sell/trade part of a few of the well known forums you might come across a used one in good cond. You can get the HRAP 2 SA and a pelican adapter new on ebay, and from what I know there’s not much difference between that and the 3 (other than the 3 working natively on ps3 obviously, and there’s no detectable lag on the pelican). They all use quick disconnects etc though, so IMO any of them are fine because you can put whatever you want in them.

What’s so special about the mounting plate being different than the regular HRAP 3?…Just being able to interchange to a Seimitsu stick? Thx!
Also the HRAP 3’s Hori buttons are easily swapped with sanwa buttons. The leads were made to pop out with a screwdriver. The faceplate can’t be the only modification. What else justifies the price jump?
If you look at Hori’s official site (JP), the HRAP SA for PS2 and PS3 actually cost the same! I’m going hunting and will pick up any SA I see…
I guess the ease of customization is nice and all, but if you really don’t plan on swapping out components more than once, the extra steps on the HRAP 3 aren’t really that bad as far as mods normally go. a couple screws and some hard to get to bolts and nuts, in the long run if you want a good fight stick now, and you live in the US, I’d go with the HRAP 3.0 and swap out the Hori buttons and if you’re so inclined change out the square gate for a octagonal gate. It’s a very nice stick and I don’t really see much point in waiting til October for the SA, and even less of a point of importing it for an extra 150 bucks.
Just wait for an HRAP Pro V…
CPS that’s easy to say now, but back in July some of us couldn’t wait.
Is it backwards compatible with PS2 games running on a PS3? (60 gig console)
Got this badboy today and holy crap it rocks on PS3 and MAME, if you can GET THIS STICK YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!
i have this stick now,,,
It’s so SHINY! :D
I just ordered a pair from here:
Love mine, switched with a black matte bat style topper . So sweet the buttons are great, anyone with a hrap3 should consider one of these, or at least switching those buttons.
