Is the d-pad that good?

#1Hustler NinePosted 2/14/2013 2:29:04 PM
I'm a Tekken player and I see in a lot of forums that everyone is prasing the Vita's d-pad.
I play Tekken with the DualShock so I really need some opinions.

Well...is it really THAT good?


Thanks in advance!

Best D-Pad on any portable system IMO

If it was a bit bigger, it would be perfection

It's way better than the PSP if you had one. I play a lot of fighting games and I can't say it has given me any problems.

I like it. Its very clicky and sturdy as hell. I see no wear or tear on my dpad even though i have used it a whole year and played 200 hundred hours+ of rpg's. Sometimes i accidentally touch the left analog stick but other wise its pretty good. If you are hardEST core fighting game nut then you should rip the left analog out so you can play better, lol.

I think the 360 d-pad is way better

My only problem with it is that it's a little too close to the analogue stick. The stick is also a little too high compared to the PSP's nub. The D-pad itself is a work of art though IMO.

i agree but if analog stick were lower it should be changed to slidepad like with 3ds or it would really destroy my hands.

Yes... I actually prefer ot to the Xbox dpad as well. I really only play fighting games on a console with an arcade stick, but I like the Vita dpad for the three fighters that I own.
