Re: Arcade solo joystick
07/12/15 07:06 AM


I've looked into most joysticks found when doing a basic search, especially the ones available via Amazon.

Most of these joysticks are not made for PC, but instead for PS3/PS4/X-box. That is ok as long as they work on a PC. If I'll buy a console joystick I definitely prefer if it's compatible with PS4 as any joystick for PS4 are known to work flawlessly with a PC.


One company that pops up are Eightarc/Qanba. Their joysticks got pretty good reviews, but they don't appear very active. No news on their website in over a year and no PS4 support.

Hori, which I already purchased from, is available with a few models, with PS4 support. I would definitely prefer if they were more colorful, as I much prefer yellow/orange etc and not the all black that their Real Arcade Pro. 4 Kai is.

Then we have MadCatz, which have a few models, many that are not available to buy (out of stock everywhere). They don't seem to have received as high ratings as the competition, but still ok though.

If Eightarc or Qanba were available for PS4, or at least showed that they're still alive I would buy one of their offerings and try it out.

Now I'm leaning to test MadCatz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2, or buy one of Hori's other offerings, unless someone points me to some other joystick to check out.



The X-arcade Solo was ok to play with, but a deal-breaker is that it always uses its "slot 1" default settings when starting up, i.e. you have to manually load any settings you have stored in slot 2, 3 or 4 every single time!!! I'll confirm this with their support, but if this isn't fixable I'll send it back.

Any input of any of these joystick are appreciated.
