Gamedaily has nice firt look article and pictures about madcatz's official street fighter IV Stick and controllers.
When i look at the TE stick all i can think of is that I cannot wait to get my hand on this baby.
From the article: "The Tournament Joystick, roughly the size of an Xbox 360 comes with the standard joystick and six buttons and seems sturdy enough to take a beating. Madcatz worked with Japanese company Sanwa to get the same exact buttons and joystick they use on the arcade versions of the game -- it's hard to get more authentic than that. At the top of the box is a special Turbo button -- once you press it you can assign Turbo to any of the buttons on the box. Just to cover all their bases, there are two types of Turbo -- faster and slower -- so hardcore fighting fans can get the fine-grain customization they're looking for. Once the customization is complete -- hit the lock button to make sure your settings stay put. "
Remember you can only get your hand on the tournament edition stick through a Pre-order. You cannot walk in a store a buy them. Amazon ahs recently re-opened the preorders. To preorder yours:
