    Default Mad Catz Xbox Live Arcade Retro Stick - got one?

    http://www.ebgames.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=802511

    If anyone owns one of these, i need to know one specific thing about it, and one specific thing only.
    The triggers.
    I read that the LB/RB and LT/RT are on the FRONT of the unit. are LT and RT now buttons similar to LB and RB on this unit???
    I need to know this for hacking purposes.

    Do you mean similar shape? No they are not.

    Kejoriv,
    Exactly what i need to know is this:
    How do the Triggers work on this stick?
    Are they pressure sensitive/analogue similar to an actual 360 pad?
    OR
    Are they buttons such as LB and RB, or any of the face buttons?
    My full intention is to buy one, rip it apart, and use the board to build my own arcade stick, as this is a cheaper option than finding a DOA4, and i'd rather not ruin the work of art that a DOA4 is. (they're nice sticks, I just don't dig hori parts.)
    If you could send a picture of the buttons in question, it'd probably help me a LOT.
    I thank you, and anyone else who posts info for me, for their time and efforts to assist a madman in his quest.

    I liked the idea of the joystick, but I'm against getting one because of the stick placement. Putting the joystick on the left side and the fire buttons on the right just seems like a stupid thing to do. And I have a hunch that left handed people will still complain about it, even though it's designed for lefties.

    But if you are going to buy one, you need to buy mine.

    I own it....after struggling terribly with the last few sections of DDR universe quest mode i hooked the control in.

    the turbofeatuer on it combined with its small size makes this controller own the hell out of DDR universe. >.>

    It's cheapbut omg it works.

    Kamino to finally answer your question the triggers on the retro stick are pressure sesitive.

    I too am looking to tear the thing apart and giving a go at making my own stick. But I will take my time due to the fact that there are no fighters that demand my attention at the time.
