1Emulation to Review X-Arcade: Tankstick!

Recommended Posts

Currently, we are in the process of obtaining the latest product by XGAMING, the X-Arcade: Tankstick! It was one of the first products on the gaming market that can work with the PS1, PS2, GameCube, XBOX, and DreamCast! The X-Arcade works best on the personal computer and is compatible with all games and emulators.

 

What makes the Tankstick different from its predecessor is its new built in Trackball as well and full USB support for the entire device. We will be reviewing the product through pictures and hopefully videos as well. Thanks to the help of Craig from XGAMING, he was able to let us exchange our 2-Player X-Arcade for their latest Tankstick. We have been very pleased with their phenomenal customer support!

Looks impressive although I'm no judge, never having owned anything like this. Is $200 a good price? I wouldn't know.

 

As for the trackball, is it that white blob in the middle? Bit hard to tell.

 

oh yeah, fixed your tiny little typo. :thumbsup1:

I think when I am done with my application process and actually have money I'll get one. It looks pretty cool and I would like to get back into arcade gaming.

Yes, that's the trackball. Here's another picture below:

For such a unique device as the X-Arcade: Tankstick, $200 is a bargain!

 

You can also buy the X-Arcade: Trackball ($100), 1-Player (Solo) X-Arcade ($100), and 2-Player (Dual) X-Arcade ($130) separately instead of all in one which is the X-Arcade Tankstick.

thanks, that picture is much clearer. :)

I also forgot to mention that another great thing about XGAMING is their Lifetime Warranty and 30-Day Money Back Guarentee on the X-Arcade product line.

They've really outdone themselves. :thumbsup1:

Furthermore, let's just say we're very excited to see what the X-Arcade: Tankstick has to offer in our review.

That single player arcade stick is pretty badass, I should get one of those for SFA and the likes.

I have the original dual-stick version and its a pretty solid stick. It's good to see they're moving up in the world with the USB support (old version was serial). The trackball is a nice touch as it opens up a new library of games to play on your emulator of choice. (Please test "The Irritating Maze")

 

Arcade purists/ fighting game purists will likely pass on this stick; however, as it is said to suffer from input lag and the parts are "arcade quality" which means (to them) not arcade. These particular folks are the same ones that only use "SANWA" parts or some other official arcade parts and can somehow feel the milliseconds of response coming from their fingertips/ wrist to the screen. (these are the guys that complain the most when you kick their ass in a fighting game).

 

I think the stick is suited for the audience it is targeting: General emulation gaming fanatics that would rather just buy something quick and easy than go through the trouble of building it themselves.

Current the X-Arcade product line does not support the XBOX 360.

 

When Is Xbox 360™ Adapter Coming?

 

We are receiving daily inquires regarding Xbox 360 adapter availability and if you weren't already aware of it, Microsoft™'s prohibitive policy for third-party controller support will drastically delay any releases from 3rd-party hardware makers like us. We currently do not have a locked release date for an XBOX™ 360 adapter.

I've always been interested to see how this works. I'll always be a keyboard user myself though. Hope to see a good review :thumbsup1:
