Nov 27th 2009 10:11PM Oh the god's of Engadget, bless upon me a Zune HD as I cannot buy one in the land of Canada!
Nov 1st 2009 2:09PM I can personally say I have never had a problem with a Cowon product and love them to no end. Pushes great sound quality and more formats then you can shake a fist at.

Oct 4th 2009 1:01PM Will totally be bustin' balls in Brutal Legends!
Sep 26th 2009 2:50PM The best parts? Not necessarily , both Sanwa and Seimitsu are the two highest contenders for buttons in the arcade market, and both have a different feel to them making them a personal preference.
Same with layout, I prefer Blast City layout to any other, there is no "One layout to control them all".
As for tools, I finished mine with a screw driver. I ordered a case (and there are some cheap ones out there if you look) for my setup, though I've seen people do cases with bare minimum of tools.
I just figure if your spending $150 on a stick, you should get one that is tailored to your tastes.
Sep 26th 2009 1:18PM Still say it's better to build one then buy one, hell, you don't even need to know how to solder to make one. Not only does it allow you to choose company choice for buttons/stick, but also allows you to pick what layout you prefer.
Plus, if you plan ahead of time, you don't even need to worry about converters. Mine can connect to a 360, PS3 and PSX, so no need to worry about finicky converters.
Just my 2 cents.
Sep 25th 2009 8:47PM Actually, look at any Japanese arcade fighting game, they all use the ball top, the bat top was used more so in the arcades in the States, and it really only boils down to preference. I myself can't use a bat top in a fighting game if my life depending on it, I prefer to grip the underside of the ball.
And speaking of which, I would much recommend that you make a stick over buying one, not only is it quite nice being able to choose button/joystick of your preference, but layout can also be a large deciding factor.
