At this price point, you should know what you're getting yourself into. It's (as far as I can tell) the only fightstick you can get for PS2 brand new for a reasonable price. The included stick IS NOT compatible with any other gate including the Sanwa GT-Y. You would have to either replace the stick (which entails drilling four standard mounting holes), or jerry-rigging your own gate. The buttons are mushy and can be replaced, but may require some sanding of the chassis holes. You cannot change the control scheme for PS2 without rewiring the buttons. I read the manual to find the PS2 control scheme, but it was incorrect. PS2 control scheme is:L1 SQ TR R1L2 X O R2For a casual user, this is a great stick to quickly get setup and play PS2 and emulated titles. I mostly got it to play Metal Slug Anthology and Gauntlet Legends for PS2. It just works, and I really recommend it for this use case at this price point.
