Posted on July 28, 2010, Shawn Sines X-Arcade Solo Arcade Fighting Stick Available Again
There is nothing quite like the feel of an arcade cabinet control stick. Console analog thumbsticks never quite measured up to the responsiveness or tactile joy of the traditional stick and 6 springy button interface. Luckily, X-Arcade makes some great add-on controllers for the PC that work especially well with home MAME arcade setup.
The X-Arcade Solo, a one player arcade replica controller is now back in production. Whether you’re looking for a classic single player PC arcade control solution or building the ultimate multi-purpose home arcade the $100 accessory adds a wonderful, nearly indestructible feature.
The X-Arcade Solo is sturdy and ruggedly built and comes ready out fo the box for use with PCs and Macs, but luckily X-Arcade also offers adapters for console systems if you’re looking for that true arcade feel.
