IGN has conducted a review on Hori's fighting stick for the PS3 and awarded it an overall score of 8/10.
"...we highly recommend the Fighting Stick 3 to anyone looking to play fighting games on the PS3. In our testing with Virtua Fighter 5, we found the Fighting Stick 3 to be infinitely more comfortable and accurate than the standard Sixaxis controller. The quality of the stick and buttons is unmatched among home arcade controllers (unless you opt to custom build your own), and the size and weight are just about perfect. We wish the button layout was better and that the stick worked with the PlayStation 3's backwards compatibility, but if you want to play Virtua Fighter 5 or the upcoming Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, there's no better option."
