The first prototypes of Madcatz produced Official Streetfighter IV Arcade Stick and Control Pads were shown for the first time this week at the Gamestop Manager's Conference in Las Vegas.
Standard Stick $69.99
Premium Arcade Stick $139.99
Rumors have been floating around that the pads will be modeled after SEGA's legendary Saturn Pads. Standard Stick will be budget minded and should at least have the quality of the Hori Fighting Stick series. But what hardcore fighting game fans are really looking forward to is the Premium Arcade Stick which has been rumored to be "arcade perfect."
To the hardcore fans this means Vewlix panel style layout with Sanwa JLF series joystick and Sanwa OBSF buttons!
If this is true then any bad rep Madcatz may have had in the past is now forgiven. :P
Now updated with pics. Keep in mind that these are just prototypes and are not the final product.
