Say what you will about the analog sticks on typical game console controllers, but there’s just something about a retro arcade styled joystick along with the slightly oversized buttons that makes games that require a lot of button mashing, such as Street Fighter and Tekken, so enjoyable.
Well here’s a way for you to get your button mashing on with Mad Catz’s Tournament Edition Arcade FightStick, which is part of Mad Catz’s MLG-branded accessories. It is made by legendary arcade manufacturer, Sanwa Denshi from Japan, and is compatible with your PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
It also features a compartment in the back to stow away that 4m cable when not in use or if you plan to bring this to a friend’s house. The Tournament Edition Arcade FightStick is expected to be made available in time for the holiday season, and you will be able to pick up one for yourself for $160.
