I was looking at that stick. I think it makes more sense to get a PS2 one and a converter, since there are so many good arcade games on PS2 and the converter would also work with MAME on my PC. Also not sure that virtua stick has a real Sanwa stick inside? The Hori Arcade Pro does, and it's the same price - that's what I was thinking of getting.
Years back I only used Hori sticks, this was before I got into MAME back in the early Saturn/PS1 days. I miss the accuracy and short throw range of the Japanese controls, compared to the US style sticks (Happ) I've been using the past several years.
