Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade FightStick Pro
Featured Reviews: Input Devices

For as long as I can remember, I've been a huge fan of arcade fighting games: Street Fighter, Tekken, and Virtua Fighter. Street Fighter was the original arcade quarter-goblin, and its sequels were financed by my paperboy earnings. Tekken and Virtua Fighter absorbed any disposable income I earned as a teen. So when game consoles replaced arcades, I was among the first to jump onboard and practice my moves at a discount. Because of exciting characters, you could hardly master one game before the others lured you in - which is why Mad Catz "Street Fighter X Tekken" theme makes sense. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Mad Catz Street Fighter X Tekken Arcade FightStick Pro for PlayStation3.

Featured Reviews: Input Devices

Benchmark Reviews has tested all sorts of gaming peripherals in the past, today we are taking an in depth look at the SteelSeries 6Gv2 mechanical Gaming Keyboard. The 6Gv2 is the little brother of the 7G and does away with some of the unneccesary features of an already basic gaming keyboard and for a good reason too, the 7G is a little on the expensive side. The 6Gv2 does away with the USB hub, the audio ports and the wrist rest. The price is still a little high at $99.99 but it is certainly better than the price of the 7G, essentially the 6Gv2 is a stripped down version so lets see if it's worth your hard earned cash.
