Hori brings Soulcalibur IV arcade sticks to North America

Some Soulcalibur vets may feel more comfortable with a joystick and Hori has a solution for them with two sturdy looking Soulcalibur IV sticks. The PlayStation 3 version looks improved over the previously released Real Arcade Pro Stick 3. However, the Xbox 360 stick is just a paint job of the Fighting Stick EX 2 model and not the revised Real Arcade Pro EX. I’m guessing Hori made this decision because of a pricing issue. The revised Real Arcade Pro Stick 3 costs twice as much as the older Fighting Stick EX 2 model.

Neither stick has Star Wars characters on them (licensing issues!), but Hilde, the sole new character internally developed by Namco Bandai, is on both of them. Amazon is charging an extra $10 for the Xbox 360 arcade stick pictured above. It’s $59.99. The PlayStation 3 stick is only $49.99. Interestingly, Hori has not announced plans to sell either of these in Japan.
