HORI PlayStation 3 Fighting Stick Mini 3
good things do come in small packages
first of all the stick is VERY SMALL, smaller than i was expecting (its smaller than a standard spiral notebook), however despite its small size it is a pretty decent stick. the buttons are a little small and somewhat smushed together but quite responsive. the joystick is a bit clicky and not quite as smooth as i wouldve expected but still very responsive and i am overall very happy with the product. i am pretty new to playing stick so i definitely think its a good beginner stick, and its not a big investment to make which is always an added bonus.
Arcade Fight Stick
The Hori Fight Stick Mini is a great arcade stick for the price. For those who don't know, Hori is the brand name of arcade sticks in Japan and used in all the major tournaments. The buttons are configured traditionally (four across, two rows) which makes it a good controller for all the classic fighting games. I bought it for Injustice and works well with my library of fighting games. The joystick has a cherry top on the direction stick and the motions click in every direction you move. Very responsive and space saver. Those who have played fighting games in arcades in the 90's will love this.
