Product Review: Xgaming's X-Arcade Solo Joystick (XGM Solo)

Despite undergoing only the most necessary changes in design and function, Xgaming’s X-Arcade Solo Joystick remains one of the best solutions for fans looking to replicate the authentic arcade-style experience. Those coming from standard retail sticks (such as Hori and Mad Catz) may be shocked by the stick’s rugged build and heft, but that weight brings unmatched durability and value along with it. Current models offer outstanding compatibility for older consoles and PC/Mac gaming, though support for the Wii is spotty and practically non-existent for the Xbox 360 (see explanation).

The story is too old to be commented.

The Xarcade sticks have input lag while the MAS ones didn't. Though if you're truly desperate for a HAPP stick then the Xarcade is ok I guess. Best to make your own Happ stick though. And the only game that this is truly a requirement for sticks is Marvel VS Capcom 2 where the Happ stick outclasses the Japanese style sticks.

"And the only game that this is truly a requirement for sticks is Marvel VS Capcom 2 where the Happ stick outclasses the Japanese style sticks."

That's an opinion it depends what the person is use to, like me. I'm way used to the Japanese style sticks, because its more responsive and softer to me than those BAT stick that requires a lot of force just make a single command input, but like I said its about preference...

Unless, you show me factual proof that a person who is used to a stick from another culture can pick up an play those American arcade sticks just like that in an instant, as if the where too easy to use...
