I play most bullet hell and fighting game in this few months and I was planning to get the arcade controller for the games. I saw there was a 8 button tekken controller on ebay and other official 6 button control, so which one should I get?

Current game:
Mushihime 1.5

Getting more game onward....

Do you mean 8 buttons on the controller or do you mean 8 way d-pad?

I have never used the Official Xbox Arcade stick, in fact I've never even SEEN it. I didn't know it even existed until I asked someone about their controller set-up after a game of BlazBlue.

Anyway, if the Tekken stick is the wireless one that came from Tekken 6 LE, that's a pretty good stick. However I personally do not like the 8 button layout. There's too much shit going on, and by using a stick you eliminate the need for those 2 extra buttons which are always mapped to act as 2 buttons being pressed simultaneously.

I personally use the MadCatz Street Fighter IV fight pad which has the 6 attack buttons on the face of the controller along with a floating d-pad. For MadCatz it's actually pretty damn good.
