Namco Arcade Stick (PS1)

Widely considered as one of the best arcade sticks to hit retail shelves, the Namco Arcade Stick is a Japanese styled arcade stick that has built up quite a reputation amongst the fighting game crowd.

First released in late 1996, the 10 year veteran arcade stick has aged gracefully over the years and many consoles. So if you can find one, get one, as they are getting harder and harder to find! Prior to the release of the Hori Real Arcade Pro series of arcade sticks, the original Namco stick was king of the hill.

In the early PS1 and even the PS2 era, high quality arcade sticks were few and far between.  The Namco stick offered a quick and easy solution to someone that wanted to emulate a good arcade experience.  Even today with PS2 to PS3 USB converters the Namco stick lives on and is one of the best sticks around for newer fighting games like Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and Virtua Fighter 5.

  1. I recently received this stick for my birthday by a friend who said this stick is highly regarded. Personally, I have no info on what kind of buttins/stick this arcade stick has. Can anyone link me to more info on the the stick mentioned above [Namco Stick]. Thanks

  2. This stick is absolutely legend…wait for it…dary. I’ve had three of these to date and they completely destroy most of the middle tier sticks to date. Not bad for a 12 year old piece of equipment. Holds value and reliability. If you’ve got one neglected in the attic or somewhere, hold on to it. It’s gonna be a piece of history in a couple years.

  3. i messed up when i phrased the question, i got a friend selling one and i want to know what would be a good price to ask him for it

  4. I got mine for $5 from a gaming store that didn’t know any better. You can probably get one on ebay for a bout 40. That’s how much I saw one sell for a few days back.

  5. OMG, no joke I got this stick BRAND NEW in 2002 at a Kay-Bee outlet in Indianapolis that was going out of business. Outstanding stick, worked like butter on ALL ps2/PS1/MAME fighters and shooters, a real keeper. my only gripe is that the cord could have been longer.

  6. Was cleaning up the house & found this in my old cabinet. Can anyone confirm what joystick & buttons are in here? I already gotta SF4 TE stick so I’m putting this up on eBay more than likely. Thx!

  7. Forgot to also ask if these these buttons are QD’s, highly doubt it. Couldn’t hurt to ask before I bite the bullet & just open it up, LOL! Thx!

  8. man just a few days ago i was walking through goodwill and came across the 1996 model namco fight stick for four dollars….it works great,its such a solid stick haha and ive finally got one!!!
