Jaxel, can you do something about the slider within the forum? The text is bunched up and looks ugly.
 
imho, *shrugging shoulders*. I would try their fighting stick, only I prefer a wired stick. Battery replacing is something I could do without; I'll check the specs later.
An internal battery for it would be the business. That HD TTT would be indeed sweet for nostalgia. TTT2 demo: a'ight.
Thanks for the news!
 
I was wonering when Madcatz was gunna release thier new stick design for 3d players. Ill probably skip on this one but Ill get the Soul Calibur TE when its announced :D. (if its announced)
 
I'm purchasing a ps3 soon and I loved TTT growing up. I'll definitely keep an eye out, but I'm finding pictures of the fightstick....lacking?
 
@franman: Is there any rule stating that we only have to post SC related news? Plus you can simply ignore it.
 
Malice, it's questionable stuff like this that I have to step forward and ask; again this is the Soul Calibur forum it's common sense to me that everything related to Soul Calibur should be in the Soul Calibur forum and other stuff goes to Video Game Discussion or General Discussion Lounge.
 
tbh Ive been waiting for this stick to come out. Im hopiong for when the Soul Calibur version comes out it will have a curved button layout. This news does relate to soul calibur since this pretty much confirms that a Soul Calibur TE will come out. Remember Mad Catz, Curved Buttons like the Hori or I wont buy.
 
Why is this on the front page of a soul calibur website?
I know right? When I first saw the image, I immediately thought they were already showing us the box art for SCV with the LE and arcade stick, despite it being too soon for it. But then I read the words "TEKKEN" and my disappointment sank in... Although I know that box art is too soon at this point, I really did think that was it.
 
TE-S is my favorite kind of stick. ^__^

wish you guys caught me 3 days before, when I ordered one off amazon.

But still......$250 kind of hurts (I paid 100 less for the amazon one)
 
So this stick is PS3 only?
PS3 only.

imho, *shrugging shoulders*. I would try their fighting stick, only I prefer a wired stick. Battery replacing is something I could do without; I'll check the specs later.
An internal battery for it would be the business. That HD TTT would be indeed sweet for nostalgia. TTT2 demo: a'ight.
Thanks for the news!
This stick is wired.
 

one thing i find rather funny is Tekken Hybrid is a remake of a game most tekken fans possess like a bible (yeah. go ahead and hate) a movie and a demo. Safe to say, i'm not spending money on that. Sorry Namco. love ya, still! ... Make TTT2! I'm already throwing about 120 at you for SF vs. Tekken and SC5!
