Killer Instinct Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 for Xbox One
I have owned 2 of the regular fight sticks for xbox 360 and two of the Mortal Kombat Fight Sticks. The only one that even comes close to the quality of this was the pre-order MK fight stick. This is one of the best case designs I've seen, I love the easy access design and built in LED's. A lot of sticks claim to have genuine sanwa parts then you open it and you end up replacing components. This was not the case all parts and buttons are Sanwa. I will probably order some buttons for it to customize it but not needed at all it is very responsive out of box, the only thing you may consider getting for this is an octagonal joystick gate, which is around $3 and easily changed.
Even at the $200 price I'm super excited for this! I was on the fence until I researched the cost of a stick with these features and its a good deal for great hardware. This should last a long time and you have the capability to add in all sorts of different customizable sticks and buttons. You can do it just to spice things up or to replace faulty parts. Swapping in new pieces is a breeze thanks to the hinged panel and included tools. I'm really excited that its available at Gamestop and will be visiting a store later today or tomorrow to pre-order it so it can be ready for pickup at midnight!
Broke after 4 minutes
After 4 minutes of gameplay it died and never came back on.. Submitted support ticket with Madcatz never got a response. Had to call at work since they only offer support till 3pm. I was told the issue was the cable and that they would send a new one. 3 days later I get an email saying they sent it via USPS, they didn't give me a tracking number. 2 weeks later and no cable. I've had this $200 paper weight for a month now, good thing I payed for the next day shipping. If I ever get a working product I will maybe update this review. Otherwise I will be returning to gamestop.
Best Fight Stick!
Awesome quality, great precision, beautiful design!!!!!!!! The Fight Stick feels crisp and very responsive, totally worth the money for those that love Killer Instinct and Fighting games!
This is by far one of the best arcade sticks.
I like the Led lights. The look and feel of this arcade stick is awesome. This is the perfect way to play Killer Instinct.
