IST Mall is back with a banger!

The MakeStick X Prime is in good hands with the Brook Universal Fighting Board (UFB) that, for a fee, you can attach to the Brook UFB-UP5 for PlayStation 5 compatibility.

If you opt for the maximum build, here is the full compatibility list in addition to the PC:

  • PlayStation 5
  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation Classic
  • Xbox Series X
  • Xbox Series S
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox 360
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Wii U
  • Sega Genesis Mini
  • Neogeo Mini

The Tachyon version has less compatibility and is cheaper as a result.

There is a Knee Edition dedicated to the seasoned Tekken pro from South Korea as well as its own Tachyon version.

That said, what can you expect from the MakeStick X Prime?

The default build sports a Fanta 24GN joystick and Sanwa OBSF-30 buttons. Joystick modes such as left stick, right stick, and D-pad can be chosen with a switch. Secondary buttons can be locked to avoid mishaps. The top plate can be opened and closed with one button. Inside, you can find a joystick top, buttons, cable storage, and screwdrivers.

Again, that was the default build. IST Mall allows you to customize the arcade stick to your liking. For example, if you are not a fan of Korean joysticks, you can opt for another joystick onsite. The unique button layout may not be your preference as well, and you can also change that.

Here are the other options you can choose:

  • Custom artwork
  • Buttons
  • Button color
  • Added fixed USB terminal

As of now, the arcade stick is quite pricey, but it is one of the very few arcade sticks made in the generation of consoles so far, and it clearly packs a punch in the customization department.
