Rad Combo: Buy An Arcade Stick + Donate To Charity

Illustration for article titled Rad Combo: Buy An Arcade Stick + Donate To Charity

The Platinum Capcom Cup Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 isn't just a mouthful, it's one of the prettiest - and most exclusive - video game controllers around. The only people on Earth who will ever use one are the top placers at this year's Capcom Cup fighting game tournament. Oh, and maybe you, if you donate to a good cause.


To raise funds for those affected by tropical storm "Haiyan", Mad Catz and Capcom are auctioning off twelve of these fight sticks on eBay, with proceeds going towards the relief effort.

I've never really played a fighting game. But if I did I'd probably want one of these pads to play it right. But I don't want to buy one and then not like the games and then have a thing i don't need. Also there's no Dave and Busters or anything near here I could go and test something like this out on.

It's a real problem. That I can't be bothered to be bothered.

Could someone find me one that's cheap? And by cheap i mean under $50. Quality doesn't really matter as long as it's not broken.
