For fighting fans looking to invest in an arcade fightstick, you have two options: controllers that were made by Mad Catz and controllers that weren’t. There’s just no comparison. Mad Catz FightSticks are the best. Period. Accept no substitutes or imitations. These controllers are the real deal – and with a limited production run of 5,000 units, this Collector’s Edition stick for the PS3 is as amazing as it is rare.
It would have been so easy to slap some official artwork over a cheap block of plastic and call it an ‘official’ fighstick. But that’s just not the Mad Catz way. There’s a nice weight to this FightStick. With its high-quality arcade components and sleek layout, this FightStick is great for precise inputs and taps. But it can also take a beating. So even if a losing streak winds up with you going all “HULK SMASH!” on its incredibly solid frame, this FightStick will keep on ticking.
