The tournament addition stick is quite possible one of the best game controllers ever made using components directly from the arcade cabinent. Presentation is spot on, with a delicious plastic casing both for the stick and the red outer box. The art design is wonderfully drawn too giving you a real sense of optimism for the game.
You plug the whole thing into the PS3 using a USB cable so please note that this preheripal is NOT wireless. Cables plenty long though so that should not cause an issue at all. Buttons are large, spaced out beautifully and have that great arcade feel and polish to it. Stick itself is fine, strong and hard although not sure if its the same exact height as in the (western) arcades - remember those Japanese fellas have slightly smaller hands in general! It plays solid too. I must admit that initally I found some of the special moves hard to pull off as the stick is so precise it requires almost perfect directional movement and button timing. However, once you've mastered that there'll be no stoping you and serial combos will become second nature.
Best played on a large screen with surround sound SSFIV + Arcade stick is the ultimate fighting experience not to be missed.
