“ Microsoft SideWinder Joystick - Joystick - 8 button(s) „
I got this!, yes I'm a gamer.
so let me tell you all about this product.
should you buy it?... NO!
why?, lets start,
The first thing against the joystick is the base is sooo big that will take a lot of space in your desk!, it is big, heavy and ugly.
The second is the stick, at the beginning it is soft and you move it whatever direction you like, them when you are in the game (a flight simulation game), its get harder, but sometimes in middle of flying it get soft and make you lose control of your airplane, that's sucks!, other time you has to fight against it because it get soft and harder continually.
another problem is that if you turn right or left your airplane turn the half it should be, you can configurate this, I did, but no change.
The accelerator switch is only 0 or 100%, what about if you want your air speed to 50% or 20% (for landing), you can't! you have to calculate it little by little, and that waste time. :(
the main firing button?, nothing excitement about it.
the good thing is this joystick is plug and play in winXp, you got 2 front bottoms, which you can use to bomb, or fire a missile and the a main firing button
Ahhhh, before i forgot, this joystick has vibration mode, so it rumble every time you fire! :D but you can find betters joystick out there :D
