Qanba Obsidian Joystick for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 and PC (Fighting Stick) Officially Licensed Sony Product
About this deal
While there are downgrades from the original Obsidian, the Obsidian 2 still offers enough innovation to deserve a buy. We briefly glossed over thumb-screw access. Its main appeal is unscrewing the right side compartment with simply your thumb instead of needing to have a specialized tool for that. However, this does not mean that the compartment is flimsy, which is good. The same applies to the left side compartment with thumb screws.
En PC el boton de PS4 no funciona y hay juegos como Tekken 7 que para reiniciar en modo practica te ves forzado a usar uno de los botones pequeños de arriba mas el boton X para reiniciar. Es tronco y es facil hacer Turbo mas X en su lugar. En street figther V obviamente no tienes el uso del touch para las multiples opciones de training ligadas al touchpad. Unparalleled construction build. This thing is built like a tank and still not extremely heavy as a Qanba Q4 I used to have as well.The control panel includes PS, L3, R3, turbo, and mute, the latter of which is to mute your microphone input. As for the toggle switches:
los botones y palanca sanwa son excelentes, alta calidad, es modeable, pero fuera de buscar botones custom o silenciosos no hay razon para hacerlo, la parte mecanica es fantastica aún bajo uso rudo. Touchpad: It works for the most part but it seems kind of unresponsive to presses. It takes a few presses before it recognizes the left or right inputs to the pad to reset my character in Street Fighter V training mode. Not the worst thing but still think it should be noted. At this point, I'm all smiles and I'm so glad I didn't buy a Razer or a Mad Catz. Don't get me wrong, those are great products as well! But the difference here is that those feel like plastic toys while this feels like a piece of gorgeous well built equipment.
Perfectly possible to mod it 100%... provided you're a bit savvy and good with your hands and careful electronic equipment. Of course, there is a touchpad. There is, again, a 3.5 mm mic input with a mute button, and the cable is located on the left side. There is also an anti-slip base pad.
If you're into modding, replacing parts are not as easy as a TE2+, but in my opinion, this is worth the hassle as the frame is way better. Connecting the Obsidian is fairly simple. Just assign the switch to the desired platform, which will either be PS3, PS4 or PC and then plug in and play.I can see why professional tournament winning players use Qanba. This had improved my game play skill almost instantly. The Obsidian is quite big, measuring 46 x 26 x 12 cm which is bigger than the Razer Panthera, although not as big as the Qanba Dragon. Because of its size, therefore, it also has a nice weight to it at almost 3kg. Wire and compartment: The lid is very tight and kind of difficult to open and I'm scared I'm going to break it eventually . The wire is also not braided like they said in the description but ehhh..that's not to bad.
