I recently bought this Tournament Edition fightstick judging from Reviews from many people. So i threw in the extra cash to Upgrade from getting the Standard Edition Stick to the Tournament Edition, and i must say it is Money well spent...
For me that is, someone who plays Street Fighter IV more than anything else at home. I shall describe the Stick first. Yes, Perhaps it is most expensive one to buy, but remember, you get what you pay for. The Stick comes with Sanwa parts, a very proffesional company who make sturdy buttons and Ball top sticks. whilst the Standard edition does not have Sanwa parts (that is bad) resulting in the SE (Standard edition) to break very quickly.
the TE (Tournament Edition) is a very High quality product and I highly recommend above any other Arcade Stick out there.
But I shall say this, the Stick and Buttons...if you have NEVER played in arcades before (Like myself) you will find it Awkward and somewhat clunky to play with at first, using this Item for Professional Combos in Street Fighter will take Time and Dedication to pull such things off. Only buy this if your a dedicated Street Fighter (The Stick can be used for other Games aswell) as if you don't really put your time into playing the game it would be a waste of Money. And yes, you will be unbelievably rubbish at the game for a while, but you pick up on the buttons quickly.
There is a Turbo feature on the stick allowing for quick reactions without you having to tap the buttons very quickly, although, this is considered Cheating Online, so i only recommend using it for those Tricky Hard Trial Combo's (and even then they are still hard to pull off)
So if you are a person whop plays Street Fighter 4 or any other Fighting game more than anything else, This is a must buy for you, the Price Tag may be steep but you shall not regret it. but for those who balance to play there games and only play fightings if they feel like, don't spend this amount of money on something you will not take your time to master.
