So I got the “Ken” version of this today and I have mixed feelings on it…
First and foremost, the packaging is worth putting on a wall, its just fucking beautiful.
Secondly, the controller comes with a comic book (which is actually two episodes from the official Udon Street Fighter comic series in one) that just HAPPENED to have the ONE issue I was missing in it… That made me very happy.
Thirdly, and most importantly, the controller would be great if it werent for the shitty D-Pad.
I can’t understand it and I really think that it is MY controller. But UP is just too damn sensitive. I cannot for the life of me do a shoryuken with this hunk of shit. I love this controller very much badly and wish so very much that it worked better. But sadly, they did not make a “perfect” fighting game controller.
Reasons for buying- It has ken on it, it would be ALOT easier to travel with instead of my hulking arcade stick that I normally use, it has ken on it, I needed a new ps2 controller anyway.
That looks like the old Sega Saturn contollers. Just with, you know, PS2 button markings and Ken on it. And slightly different shoulder buttons, but it’s still very close. Damn companies ripping off Sega controllers… First XBox and now Street Fighter PS2… grumblegrumblegrumble…
If that isn’t a Sega controller reminder…I dunno what is. However, controllers have just gotten beyond themselves in the past few years with all this new fangled shit. God bless the days when there was just an A and B button…like old school NES.
Has anyone seen that crazy device that has like, 70 THOUSAND really old and repetitive games on it (looking like from the Atari and possibly NES era), that looks EXACTLY like an N64 controller with A/V cords sticking out of it?
That gouki one looks so fucking sweet, but i HATED playing SF2 on the genesis, because of the genesis controller’s crappy ergonomics. This thing looks like it would have the same problem, so i’ll stick to my current stick. (lolz).
