Whats the Difference?

#1 Edited by Heartagram (1181 posts) -

Are these sticks any different or is it just a rerelease with exactly the same features.  
 
Stick #1....Stick #2

This :)  They're exactly the same, the only exception being the colors and art.

@Heartagram: What MrJared said is right.  No major differences.

the upcoming sticks for ssfiv will be slightly improved than the first two releases. something about better pcb, and the start/select buttons will be included in the "hold" switch. but yeah those two are the same, just different artwork which btw is easy to customize

@Thrawn: Do you think i should wait for the updated ones? I have never really played with a stick but i want to start getting used to it now so i am ready when SSFIV comes out

well the upgrades really aren't that significant. and if you buy one of the older sticks you'll be more likely to get them at a huge discount while the new sticks will cost upwards of $150. It does take a long time to get used to stick and i recommend trying one out first to make sure you can at least get somewhere close to doing all the inputs comfortably. there are  a lot of really good pad players that just find the sticks to be awkward and it's not guaranteed that a stick will make you play better.

@Thrawn: Ok with that into consideration do you think i should get a fairly cheap one at first then upgrade at a later date?  
 
I have around 150 to spend right now which is why i was thinking of getting one Saw this stick.  
 
Would that be a decent enough one to try and practice with.  
 
This one as well

@Heartagram:
If you're going to get a stick, I would avoid those other two. I personally used the Hori EX2 myself for awhile and it's pretty bad. Inputs not registering, the gate being... cheap, all-in-all it was terrible. The MadCatz SE stick is nearly universally trashed, though some people can still manage with it. I'd just go ahead and get a TE. Unless you drop it, you won't need to get another one for a long, long time.

I broke my SFIV stick. Kind of. The faceplate got all bent to shit, making the buttons only respond 40% of the time. The bottom metal plate is all bent all over, and I broke one of the screws completely free of the plastic.
 
Yes, I used to rage really hard when I first started playing SFIV.

I'm just going by what I've heard from the majority of people who've used one. I've never used one myself, so I can't say anything personally about it either way.

I assume you mean you broke a TE stick? That'd suck. You should keep other things nearby to break for if/when you rage. :P

The SE is fine as long as you swap all the parts for Sanwa stuff.  But you may as well just spend the $100 and get the TE at that point.
