    Well I decided that I'm getting the X Arcade 2 player version for my MAME Machine, I also have a Dreamcast and Xbox so I'm undecided which version of the stick to get. I would think their are more games compatible for the DC than the Xbox at this moment, plus the Xbox can interface with a PC Monitor.

    Whatcha guys think?

    You can get the DC version. Then you can get this to use it on the Xbox.

    Also- don't wanna make your decision even harder but you sure you want the 2-player version? Leaves little elbow room for the other player...

    Well I was eventually gonna use it as the basis for a cabinet. But I doubt they'll be many times when there's more than one player.

    Dave, I'm getting the same controller in about a week. I plan on getting the Xbox connector and leaving the DC off for now. Main reason is Soul Caliber 2 is hitting all the next gen consoles very soon, I'm pretty sure Xbox will have the nicest looking/playing version. Since Soul Caliber is 95% of the reason to play my DC these days, might as well see if SC2 eclipses it before making a decision. Chances are that SC2 will pretty much kill the DC for me finally.
