You CAN replace the parts with real american arcade parts, if you want.

So if a button or stick dies, just buy a real one to replace it.

You have an American style button layout too (straight lines, instead of curves - see the pictures DDRKirby posted), but that's more personal preference.

Thanks for all your replies guys. As for the controller wearing down, I think it's covered by their life time warranty? so if it starts breaking down you can send it back? And i mainly wanted a joystick for the 2 player aspect of gaming, and It just seems that buying 2 really good individual sticks would not only be more money, but not built together on the same gameboard, which i wanted...

well, i just got the arcade dual stick in the mail today, havn't opened it yet, but am going to very soon... thanks for all your help guys!

If you want dual player joysticks, but prefer Japanese sticks/button layout, you could try the Virtua Stick Pro. It's pretty rare and expensive though.

Ideal for that arcade feeling and easily converts to USB use or supergun use with minor soldering.

hmmm, i was aiming for a black dual joystick, and although the game play might be better on that Virtua Stick Pro, i'd rather go the cheaper route...

by the way i tested the x-arcade dual joystick and it's really good for ultimate mortal kombat, so i'm happy with it... as for tetris, it's decent, a little stiff like someone mentioned, but i found that i never really had to put it in 4-way mode, the default was 8-way mode and it worked fine with tetris... so i'm pretty happy with the joystick considering the price and all... it completed my arcade and it looks nice

Well, you could of course paint it black and put in a New Net City CP...

hmmm missed this thread. what a lot of people do is just buy the blank box from xarcade because they are so cheap and put in happ parts and their own pcb which comes out to about the same price or a little cheaper than buying an xarcade stick with their crappy parts. some people are daunted at the thought of soldering a joypad but most people find that it's actually easier then it seems.

Unless you try to do it with a official xbox 360 controller... Then it is just pure hell.
