My niece fell in love with Street Fighter over Christmas. I was wanting to find her a cheap, yet good, started stick. She has a PS2, so I would prefer a stick that works with PS1/PS2. Don’t care if they are in need of repair as long as PCB is good and parts are compatible with Sanwa/Seimitsu. 6 and 8 button are both fine.
Let me know what you got.
and thanks for the help!
that’s cool that your niece is into Street Fighter! gl with finding a stick for her. XD
Well I have been looking at the Mayflash stick
and doing the Sanwa mod. That way its PS2 and then PS3 when she comes over to my place.
Figured $35 for the Mayflash, $30 for buttons & balltop, and guessing like $20 on art. so like $85 or so total.
I’m wanting to do the custom art for her so no matter what I’m going to have to spend that. So would like to stay in the $35 to $45 range for the stick itself.
So if someone has something better let me know.
Oh and she is like 13 and small so I don’t want to get a really big stick like a TE or HRAP. She liked my Namco, and DC Agetec, but like the stick and buttons on my TE the best. So I figured modding a Mayflash or something would be best.
^Don’t forget to factor in the actual modding to get japanese buttons in there. I believe sanding and what not is needed for that stick to get it up to par. Would suggest going with an ready to go stick…
get a madcatz se and dual mod it yourself! should be a fun peoject!
But modding is over half the fun
Trust me is one of the options I have been considering.
Decided to go this route. Got one for cheap so will work out great!
And yes will be a Fun Project!
Going to just put the Toodles MC Cthulhu in it so she is good for all her systems. (PS1/PS2/Wii and my PS3)
I’ll post up pics when its is done.
Thanks for the help guys!!!
