Hori Real Arcade Pro 3

Hori Real Arcade Pro 3

The Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 is easily one of the best arcade sticks available for the PS3, with the only real competition being Sega’s Virtual Stick High Grade. The HORI features the excellent Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y-SK stick, which is exactly what you’ll find in many Japanese arcade cabinets. Although the buttons on the HRAP3 are generic Hori buttons, they’re still good – and it’s easy enough to snap in some Sanwa buttons if you really must. This is as close to using a real arcade controller as it gets, and just like the VSHG, the HORI Real Arcade Pro 3 will also work on a PC (Mame, emulators, etc). There really isn’t much between the new Hori stick and the Sega VSHG – they both have superb build quality and component quality, and both sticks are fantastic to use, it really just comes down to personal preference. Although we prefer the VSHG (only just!), the Hori seems a little more solid – so if you’re enthusiastic gamer who really likes to bash your controller around, then the Hori might have the edge.

    SDTekken said that they are both great sticks as you just mentioned but the Hori is better for games like Tekken where you may have to press 2 and 3 buttons at the same time. They said that the VHSG isn’t realy suited for a game like Tekken but it is perfect for VF5.

    I am a Tekken player so I am going with the HRAP3.
