Just in time for the EVO Championships, green-and-black peripheral maker Razer announces an Xbox One version of its Atrox Arcade Stick. This made me happy, and then sad.

Happy because the Atrox is a lovely stick, built with complete customization in mind. Pop it open and all the wires are right there, ready to be swapped about as you see fit. You can swap out the ball-style joystick with a bat-type. It's got internal storage for all of the parts and tools needed, and a honeycombed bottom compartment to facilitate screw mounting. Oh, and it's got Sanwa components, because if an arcade stick doesn't everyone gets sad.

So yes, it's a lovely piece of hardware for playing Killer Instinct. That's pretty much the only real fighting happening on the Xbox One right now. There's UFC, but that's not really an arcade stick sort of game, and Fighter Within is a sad little Kinect monkey.

So in order to really enjoy the Xbox One Atrox controller, you have to either be really into Killer Instinct, or patient enough to wait until Mortal Kombat X comes out next year. *sniff*

There is no reason to get a new fighting stick if you have one at home already. Get the Cronus max hook up any system arcade stick (ps3, Xbox 360) and your set. You can now use any stick on any system (last gen or this gen.)

I've got the MadCatz SF4 stick, and had no idea how much it's appreciated in value.

I bought it when it came out, used it a few times, and thought I'd end up thrashing it to ribbons, so used it for display instead.

Seriously, look at the USED prices! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mad-Catz-Fighter-FightStick-Tournament/dp/B001M22WN8/ref=sr_1_3?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1405349597&sr=1-3&keywords=mad+catz+stick

They always appreciate because people kick themselves for not buying them. I bought the Ace Combat 4 bundle with flight stick when it came out for 150 and sold game and stick for 120 nearly 3 to 4 years later.

EDIT TO MY EARLIER POST:

I think that was actually Ace Combat 5 and not 4...

That's not allowed at every tournament and, being honest, not a lot of people buy a stick that nice just to play at home.

Ummm they use modded sticks at tournaments. (Modded as in they added the capability to play on any console.) If you're serious about fighting games you would have already added the capability to the stick itself.
