My Stick Is Here

After wondering what happened to the joystick I bought from Play-asia.com, I finally got it today!

I got an early text message at 7am but I was only able to reply at around 9am and at around 11am, the package got here. The calls I got yesterday were from them too. They were actually a few hours early but they could not contact me. I wished they had texted me though. But that’s ok, I got the joystick anyway.

This picture does not do justice to the stick. It looks a lot better than this. For a moment, I felt like a little child with a new toy. I loved it. I missed that feeling.

Behind the packaging

It’s a Mayflash universal joystick for the PS2 / PS3 / PC. The packaging says it works for the GameCube, Xbox360 and Wii, too. After unboxing the item, I immediately tested it on my PS2 and played a little Marvel vs Capcom 2. It’s a little noisy with the clicking sounds but it works great! I tried it on my laptop too. The installation and configuration is very simple and straightforward. I played a little Street Fighter 3.

It’s no Seimitsu or Sanwa but for its price, it’s a steal. The sad thing is I had a little ‘trouble’ with the Fedex delivery. If not for that, this would have been a completely positive experience. At least I learned something. I’ll just take it with a grain of salt and enjoy my new toy.

Merry Christmas everyone!
