    My man Cause aka Phil has finally gotten himself a dreamcast and virtuafighter, but <gasp> there are no arcade sticks to be found! Does anybody know of any retailers that are selling the adaptec arcade stick or have any recomendations for a stick that is in the same price range and quality?

    Try Auctioning on ebay. There seems to ALWAYS be at least 5 on auction every time I check. Just use the keyword "arcade stick dreamcast" or something like that.

    The Arcade Sticks are pretty hard to find now, import and domestic I believe (I may be wrong). I guess those are probably out of production even.

    Anyways, the only stick I can recomment besides an Agetec is the Capcom vs. SNK edition stick by Ascii. However, it is practically twice as expensive as the Agetec, has a diffferent feel, but I would actually say it is much better than the Agetec and worth it. I've only seen two places online that seem to have a ready supply of them. http://www.buyrite1.com and a Hong Kong site (sorry, forgot the URL, remind me over email and I should be able to send you the link sometime). After shipping and all that, I don't know which one will be less expensive, but I think they are both going to be around $80-100.

    There's also the option of going for a Mas stick or building one too. I think the Agetec sticks are probably the only good (Dreamcast) sticks that were sold in retailers. I haven't tested the stuff that's been released lately, but just by looking at their design I expect them to be pretty crappy... I'm considering abusing 10 and 30 day return policies to test them out though.

    Phil aka Cause, congrats on your new DC and good luck on the VF path man!
