Let's get this much out of the way: Shoryuken for shoryuken, the Mad Catz Street Fighter IV FightPad is a vastly superior instrument of destruction compared to the standard Xbox 360 controller.
for the PS3 anyway, I found the Dualshock to perform better personally.
Dumbest post I have ever read.
Why is it dumb, he prefers the dualshock? Good for him.
It's not dumb. I had that same exact controller for the PS3 and I too returned it. It is much easier to pull off moves using the analog sticks. I now have me a Street Fighter 4 Madkatz stick and I must say: anyone who is using a controller in this game is at an unfair advantge. It is so much easier to pull off moves using the Fight stick.
It doesn't matter what controller you use, arcade stick is the way to go.
@ Kigmal agreed, I managed to grab a tournament stick, yeah it was expensive but its pure awesomeness. I will not only be using it for SF though, I also like the occasional game of soul caliber, Ikaruga, and lets not forget the next installment of king of fighters :)
If you have an Xbox 360 Controller, throw it out for fighting games. Actually throw out the whole thing, it sucks.
Playing on a controller pad other than an arcade stick = fail ...but then again... its a matter of preferability...
I really want the arcade stick... but damn alot of money for it.
a genesis controller?! DS3FTSF4W
... is that a Saturn controller? Because the original controller for the Genesis only had three buttons. Sega actually released the six button controller because of Street Fighter 2. It's ironic that a decade later history repeats itself. BTW I agree with your opinion that SF Alpha 3 is the best in the franchise.
that is ironic that i would bring that up then?! good info, about the six buttons but i always preferred the snes/playstation shoulder button layout to the six button face agree's?
but ill fill this post up with some info... at my gamestop we have been sold out of the arcade sticks since the day SF4 came out and we get 5+ people asking for it daily. Madcrapz could be making a lot of money....KZ2 midnight release
...hai monkey =) which gamestop you work at? I havent gotten SF4 yet which I prolly should already have but KZ2 is around the corner and I know I'm not gona have time to play SF4.. I'm not that good anyway altho I do enjoy the game. I'm more of a Tekken player...
yeah, i feel like SF4 is going to get thrown under the bus...the KZ2 bus so i really only have a few days to play SF4 i can say that i still prefer streetfighter alpha 3 the best of all SF's just because this one feels slower, moves come in delayed it seems, still street fighter still accepting challenges online till midnight 12:01am feb 27th
arcade stick ftw
I pre ordered the acade stick for the ps3 at EB Games (gamespot) but it still not in stock yet,howerver I havent seen the madcatz controllers around anywear either.
I got the Ryu version of this fightpad, its pretty good, i can pull of plenty of moves on the 360 pad, but with the fightpad its a breeze.
Personally has anyone found any faults or troubles with this Mad Catz controller? In the past I seem to have been unlucky in the prospect that I always got a controller that would go haywire a few weeks or perhaps months; maybe even a few days down the line. So just want to know if anyone has had problems. Though I suppose I should get a controller with rumble since I have the original model of the controller without one. :)
this is what I mean when saying that I thought the DS3 performed better. I actually felt some lag and the d-pad would stall in-game and at the character select screen with the Madcatz pad, and I've been doing just fine without it. It could've been that I had one that was diffective but in any case, the sticks are too expensive and I've grown acustom to the Playstation controller since the PSone. I'd honestly have to get used to playing with sticks all over again regardless as it's been years since I've been in an actual arcade. To each his own
Yeah for the most part I can't go back to playing on sticks anymore. Though my sibling got one, so I may just snatch hers if I really felt like getting back into playing on a stick. For the most part though I suppose I'll just save up for the other controller. Being that the Mad Catz still seems to be having some difficulty at least from what you stated, perhaps I should stay away from them for at least a little while longer. :)
Is there one, what aint got no deco on it? And i think the wired part kills it for me though. What can I say I got spoiled by wireless
On Amazon I've seen all KINDS reviews about this thing breaking on people. Anyone else have this same experience yet?
Anyone in here know where in the [email protected] to find the $70 PS3 fightstick? No one has it, im in So Cal. Dammit!
Getting the Tournament stick when it becomes available(and not on ebay) for 360.
