    hi there markman…
    does anyone know if this item is available in the philippines? i want to get one, but i dont know where to buy it… or does play-asia ships items to the philippines?
    somebody please help…

  4. Markman, I have not had any practice or experience with an arcade stick but I decided to invest in one to see if I can perform better with it than the PS3 controller. I hate have my inputs messed up with diagonals/slide steps with certain characters and just to now have to resort to mapping the triggers anymore. I figured that I should go the way o most hardocre Tekken players.

    Is it going to be hard to try and convert from pad to stick? Will I have to reteach myself everything that I have learned over the past year (4 months with DRO) in Tekken? Also, I read the review on the HRAP3 and I am interested in what makes Sanwa parts so special other than the fact that they are the most popular?

    @ BonafideChild

    Hello. I say just stick with it, it takes some time getting used to stick especially if you’re mainly/used to one thing. This goes for everything in general. Depends on the adaptability of the person as well.

    The basic concept is the same, just remember Tekken was designed to be played on with an arcade stick in mind. So it will feel naturally as it was intended.

    Sanwa parts are just something you need to experience. The actual stick lever feels a bit better and more responsive to the amount of pressure I need in order for motions to register. This is just from my experience. I’m comparing it to stock Hori or Japanese clone stick parts.

    Same with Sanwa buttons. Better response/sensitivity. It really depends on the person.

  6. BonafideChild says:

    Alright, I will simply just have to practice a while. Honestly, something always felt wierd about playing Tekken on a controller. I have pretty long fingers so the buttons would feel a bit too close together for me and the controllers button inputs would not always work for me. Ontop of that, I don’t play the way that some people do with the controller on the lap and using two fingers for button pressing. I just use my thumbs.

    The arcade stick may be better for me with the whole “typing” motion where I can use my fingers.

    There are some other things about Tekken that I want to ask about but I will do it through TZ. I am also a member there so I will send a message with more questions there.

    Thank you for this information, MarkMan.

    Yo, I ordered one of these sticks from high score; and wanted to know if anyone can tell me how long the shipping takes, since the site head hasn’t gotten back to me about it yet

  8. Samroga says:

    Hey, I ordered one too for my friend BonafideChild; and I tried emailing the dude from High Score about the shipping speed with no response. So, yeah if anyone knows I’d appreciate some intel ASAP.

  9. Certa says:

    Does anybody know if this works with every game on the PS3 or just fighting ones?

    Can anyone just do a quick check.

    • MyOwnWorstEnemy says:

      probably all games since there’s a toggle to switch between digital, left or right analog. it’ll be a pain but you can probably toggle between the left to move then right analog to move the camera while playing mgs4 (MAYBE, can someone confirm?)

  10. […] we have come to know and love, with an artistic SFIV flair.  The PS3 arcade stick is essentially a Hori Real Arcade PRO 3 and the Xbox 360 arcade stick is a Fighting Stick EX2.  Check our Arcade Stick section for more […]

    Actually a bit lighter than the sf4 TE stick. 2.3 kg whereas TE is 2.4 kg. The casing seems more hollow as the microswitch click sounds resonates more than TE. Good stick overall for the price but definetly need to swap to sanwa buttons.

    • MyOwnWorstEnemy says:

      will the sanwa buttons make the difference? i tried my friend’s hrap3 and they weren’t as responsive as the t6 machine buttons here. ewgf is a pain. hopefully a simple swap-in will remedy it?
