    Default Hori fighting stick vs. Wii Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Arcade FightStick how to decide?

    I want to play the KOF collection on my Wii. The title contains the names of the two top joysticks. Any reason to pick one over the other? I'm sort of learning towards the Hori stick because I'm not crazy about the Capcoms sticks art work. But will buy it if it's superior.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    The artwork is replacable on the TVC stick, which is the stick to go with. Every part is fitted with quick disconnects for easy replacement or modding, and the stock parts feel better than the Hori.

    The Hori model uses cheap generic parts just like several of their near identical 360 sticks, such as their Virtua Fighter and Dead of Alive models. Not a single arcade quality component in sight and it's also not ideal for modding (I own the Wii version, and a DOA4 360 model, both were less than impressive).

    The Wii product from Hori is nothing special and judging by what G-Boobie just told you, this Capcom branded model sounds superior out of the box and far better suited for modding with genuine arcade quality components if you ever decided to do so.

    You guys are referring to this stick being better, correct?

    This one?

    The Hori stick is quite good, don't get me wrong. The Tatsunoko stick is definitely the better piece of equipment though: Better stock parts, much easier to replace said parts with Sanwa/Seimitsu ones (I've done it myself), and you can set the stick to function from the analog stick or the d-pad, which is nice for the shooters like Star Soldier R that only work with one.

    Another vote for the Mad Catz. Being able to swap those buttons and stick out easily make it so worth it.
