Officially licensed by Microsoft for use with the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, the $199 Hori Fighting Stick is a tournament ready arcade stick with many user-friendly features.
Best high-end fighting stick
With the Qanba Pearl you get a super stable fighting stick. As a premium option, it includes the best parts with a Sanwa joystick and Sanwa buttons. These controls are all a little further apart than your usual fighting stick, so you should have fewer mis-taps during a game.
Fightsticks are universal, which means you can use them on different platforms and in different games. As a result, you’ll probably feel more comfortable and perform better in other fighting games since you don’t have to switch controllers.
A premium fighting stick that is beautiful to look at and also great to play with the excellent Hayabusa knobs. This stick has native PS4 support so will easily work on the PS5.
However perhaps the stick’s best feature is its ability to play on almost any platform including Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC and even Switch. It is a universal stick that is fully customizable and upgradeable with Sanwa Denshi parts.
You can even add your own custom artwork to the stick and truly make it your own. Building a fightstick is often cheaper than buying a ready-made fightstick and it’s a lot of fun too!
Sony confirms in the listing that PS4 sticks do indeed work with native PS5 games as well as backward compatible PS4 titles such as Razer Panthera or Hori Real Arcade Pro.

If these are good quality batons with Sanwa or Semitsu parts, they will typically last around 5-6 years.
without maintenance and with decent use
The first thing a potential stick buyer should understand is that there is no way an arcade stick will make them better. Arcade sticks are not inherently a superior method of control compared to a regular pad, although they have different advantages and disadvantages.
Can confirm your PS3 sticks will work on PS5 with SFV legacy mode no problem or any fighting game that has legacy controller mode enabled.
Yes, they do. There is only one version of the Move controller.
It’s inexpensive and works on both Switch and PC. Doesn’t work for Smash Bros as it registers the stick inputs as D-Pad inputs so you can only mock with it. It is very small and light, making it ideal for easy portability.
The buttons and lever feel good to play with, although they’re a bit loose at times. However, pressing the buttons feels hollow and doesn’t feel as light as you’d get with Sanwa or Seimitsu buttons. This stick definitely needs mods to compete with the higher quality fightsticks on the market.
Sanwa JLF. The Sanwa JLF is probably the most popular joystick, and for good reason: It’s very responsive. Indeed, due to the compactness of the JLF and the use of high-quality materials, it is very precise.
