I want to buy it for the D pad looks like it will be good D pad compared to the reg xbox D pad.

Also don't suggest getting stick I don't like sticks never have. thanks

They are good. Totally worth the money, though you wouldn't want to use them for other games.

thats what I thought. I get the feeling using the thumbs sticks for Halo,Gears... all the time they just wouldn't last long like the MS pad. I'm just going to use the pad for games that make use of the D pad like SF/MK.

Yep, thanks to the Hori EX2 I buy all my fighting games for the 360 now. Great pad

D-pad is still in a bad spot, i'd rather have one of those SF fight pads than that, or a XCM converter and just use a ps3 pad (which i do)

I prefer the Dpad of the Hori to the PS3 pad in both functionality and placement. Opinions, opinions.....opinions

My experiences are quite different. My analog sticks on my horipads have all lasted longer than the one's on my official controllers did. And I use them for every thing.

If you're talking about the Fight Pad and not the stick, I have had 2 pads die on me (diagonals stop working) and there's really no way to repair them easily.
