I love fight sticks... I don't need as many as I have but I just ... can't help myself of late.
There are currently only around 3 fighting games available on the Xbox One (DOA5, KI, and Divekick), yet I already own 2 sticks for the system. Note: While DOA5LR shipped with many issues on the Xbone including sticks not working, sticks work now. It may however be one of the very few fighting games that I actually prefer playing on a pad though. Early impressions.
There is no constructive reason for me to own more than 1 stick for the Xbox one but I just love fight sticks and when I see a new one I kind of want it. For 2 seconds I even considered getting the HRAP V5 for the Xbox one before talking myself away from the precipice ahaha. I guess its an extremely expensive habit. It is what it is.
It does mean though that I will probably play MKX and Chrono Phantasma Extend on the Bone. Prior to the Hori Real Arcade Pro V4 Kai being sold in the U.S. as of a few days ago there aren't a whole lot of PS4 sticks out there. Mad Catz did put out that TE2 for Ultra Street FIghter IV but its been sold out for a long time apart from small batches they have sold at events. I'll probably have to wait for the PS4 tournament edition 2's that are being sold again from late April (supposedly) for a PS4 fight stick to join my collection. That will bring me up to 5 fight sticks. Though, I may have to wait longer for them to be available domestically here in Australia.
I know that this isn't really a particularly large collection, I've seen people on the Shoryuken Forums who have many more than me. But 3 of these sticks I bought over the last few months. So it's a tad excessive ahaha. If any other Giantbombers here love fight sticks and fighting games, post pics of your collections!
At the moment i'm trying to find local people to play against as playing online is kinda sterile after a while and would appreciate a community aspect.
