    In just a few days, fans of the old arcade classic will now be able to enjoy what many consider to be the best fighting game evar on our PS3s and XBOX 360s. Woohoo!

    I want to buy a joystick (maybe 2!) for my PS3. What is the best joystick out there for the PS3 and XBOX 360? Thanks!

    I've not been following this much, but is this just SF2 with redrawn sprites?

    In a nutshell yes, all the sprites have been redrawn in HD goodness. They have also rebalanced the characters a bit. Some characters who used to be a bit too strong have become less cheap, and I think they also took some characters who weren't very good and gave them an extra move or two. It will be available to download on the 27th via XBLA or PSN. I'm definitely looking forward to it, but I want a good joystick!

    it'll be available on psn tomorrow the 25th and the 26th on xboxlive. it's selling for $14.99 or 1200 mspoints. you can read on the list of changes to the game here. it really is much more than a redrawn super turbo.

    as for a fighting stick, i don't think you can go wrong with a hori stick.

    I've been using the HORI Fighting Stick 3 for Soulcalibur IV.

    play-asia.com

    I found one at a local GameStop after calling around. It's surprisingly solid. There are better sticks available, but the HORI has served me very well as a first stick.

    Scratch that, was just reading RSS and the PSN update WILL be tomorrow because of Thanksgiving. Well... that will make the time until the next PSN update feel awkwardly long.

    In that case I guess I'll just stick to SFA3 on the PSP. Thought they might have added extra characters or just have jumped right to SF3.
