    It's a tad lame yes, but still, has anyone tried this one? Is it any good? Le link.

    Mostly for PS2 fighters, but also using a converter to get it on the Xbox. Or do you know where to find Namco Arcade Stick or ASCII Stick for PS1? For a good price as well.

    Have not tried that one Skal but I have tried the Namco one and was not too keen the stick is restricted to moving in a square shape - not too fluid doing 360s with it. Also expensive at 50ish.

    I do have one of these tho for the XBox and its pretty good and cheap as well: -

    Another one to consider for the PS2/1 is the logic 3 one: -

    Or either that try and get hold of the stick that was bundled with Tekken Tag - essentially a Namco arcade stick or wait and see if Namco do another stick bundle with Soul Calibur?

    Excellent recomendations ssu, that Xbox stick looks to be exactly what I'm after, just need to get a Xbox->PS2 adapter as well.

    I've seen the Soul Calibur stick, but I thought it was for GC only, not the other two machines.

    You could try the X-Arcade one. Costly mind you.

    Yes, I was sorely tempted by one of these, but couldn't get planning permission to build the dedicated extension to house it.
