I used to love games like street fighter and mortal kombat back in the snes days but now the 360 pad is not cutting it.I have never really played these games at home on an arcade stick always on pads so can anyone recommend a good pad for the likes of the new mortal kombat or xbox arcade games like street fighter and UMK3.

Unless the official xbox 360 pad has a better D pad on it my two controllers are from when it first came out.

You're much better off with a real joystick. If you want to test the waters with a joystick, I'd recommend getting the Tekken 6 Limited Edition set, it comes with a wireless, cheapish joystick and can be found fairly cheap. I got it for $30 from best buy, and now I want to upgrade to a better stick. I wish Mad Catz made more fightsticks, I would totally buy one from them if they didn't make them so limited.

Thanks the Tekken 6 Limited Edition pack seems like a good deal for £30+ since i am not too sure about joysticks.

It's not great but it lets you see how a fighter handles with a joystick. Also Amazon has the Mad Catz WWE sticks in stock, they are the same as the SFIV ones but they have slightly better parts and WWE art, if you can get over that. SFIV fightsticks are hard to find at stores.
