Quick Facts

  • The joystick is detachable.
  • The case is metallic.
  • The panel is comprised of acrylic artwork.
  • Present are a touchpad and turbo.
  • Other artwork options include Dead or Alive, Injustice, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and Tekken.

Performance

The RAC-P300J is hefty with its rubber feet to keep it fixed onto flat surfaces. While the joystick is passable, the buttons are hard, inconsistent, and can get stuck when wiped. What is also bad is that buttons make a clicking sound well after they are registered in-game.

Hardware

No native controllers are needed when playing on console. However, opening up the case is difficult without something along the lines of a small adjustable wrench because of the tough-to-remove screws. While the interior is simple, it is incorrectly laid out, so the buttons are set up wrong. Besides that, the casing is fine. Be warned that there has been at least one report of a counterpart of this model not being identified by the PlayStation 4 as it is supposed to. If you do manage to get it to work on PC, your buttons might be wrong unless you download third party software.

Appearance

The metallic case and acrylic panel look great, especially with the sophisticated artwork that combines minimalism and complexity in a fashion unseen before. The joystick and buttons have a shine to them as well. This arcade stick could blend in nicely in a marble museum!

Conclusion

This arcade stick fails to deliver in many departments. Other flaws aside, having stiff buttons is simply no bueno.

Pros

  • Mini size
  • Interior simple
  • Casing durable

Cons

  • Buttons lackluster
  • Modification tough
  • Compatibility flawed
