I absolutely adore my Hori Fighting Commander 4. Incredible pad. Lots of nifty features, PS4/PS3 compatible as well as PC, works out of the box, nice dpad, good buttons, all around solid and priced rather fairly.

The PS4 controller works just fine, too! Sticks/Pads/regular controllers all work fine with SFV, it really comes down to a matter of comfort, preference, and quality, the only thing that might be tricky is getting used to the button layouts and all. I've heard nothing but great things about the HORI Fighting Commander 4 if you'd prefer having all your attacks (light/medium/heavy each for kick and punch) on the face and a more defined D-Pad. :)

HORI Fighting Commander 4

Saw this on amazon price drop. IDK if it's good, but it's the lowest price in amazon's history at $30. If you are a pad player looking for something.

u/StatSemita · 4 pointsr/dbfz

Find one of these.

I particularly like the 4 over the newer version. I hold the controller with my left hand normally, but rest my right hand on my leg and use the face buttons like a stick. Best of all worlds, imo.

u/AoF-Vagrant · 4 pointsr/Fighters

Looks horribly uncomfortable to me, and that d-pad looks like it'll only be good for zangief players. But maybe it'll turn out ok, we won't know for sure until it comes out in a few months.

If you want one for Christmas, this is your best (only?) bet:

u/ChampIDC · 4 pointsr/StreetFighter

I've never played with a PS3 or PS4 pad, but I'd recommend looking into the Hori Fighting Commander 4 as a fantastic value for $30 if you're only looking for a fighting game controller and don't need the analog sticks for other games. Setting it up to work on PC is very easy with x360ce.

u/jackjackjackncoke · 4 pointsr/Tekken

Arcade stick or pad is a preference. There's really no right answer. Personally, I love stick. I picked one up soon after I got into fighting games, because I loved the idea of them and I knew that I would love using one, and I haven't looked back since.

If you are curious about arcade sticks, just keep in mind that they take a few months to get used to. Some people pick it up faster than others, but for me it was a good month before I became accustom to it and then a handful more before it felt truly natural.

As for third-party pad alternatives, I know that Hori ( Fighting Commander 4 & Fighting Commander ) and MadCatz ( FightPad PRO ) both make controllers geared towards fighting games. Personally, that FightPad PRO looks bizarre to me.

u/Alteffor · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

This is the go to people have been suggestiing in terms of quality for price.

u/tmntfever · 3 pointsr/Tekken

Claw user here. Can confirm it's index+middle finger, and definitely not thumb. Also, I use a HFC, and it's damn comfortable.

u/jamrocks · 3 pointsr/Blazblue

If you want a fightpad, then Hori Fighting Commander: amazon link

Or you could get try grabbing the older model, Fighting commander 4: amazon link

u/White_Phoenix · 3 pointsr/Kappa non-referral link so the original person who posted this doesn't get shekels from you buying shit.

u/ant_blottuh · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

No this controller is pretty bad and horribly designed, I promise you will hate it. Get one of the Hori Fighting Commanders, either the one with the rotating dpad or the one without if you aren't interested in that.

I have the one without the rotating dpad and its made my inputs so clean, I can definitely vouch for it.

Ill link them both if you wanna check them out. You may be able to find them cheaper on other sites but I prefer to just use amazon.

Hori Fighting Commander

Hori Fighting Commander 4 (Rotating Dpad)

u/MogwaiInjustice · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

You could always get a fightpad as a cheaper option but honestly practice trumps all.

u/DontPoke · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

As far as prices on the Amazon US go:

The Hori Fighting Commander 4 has universally positive reviews, is compatible with PS4, and now it's discounted to $30.

The Qanba Q1 is a very good budget choice for sticks, costs $80, proprietary but good quality parts (can be modded later), and is compatible with PS4 SFV in legacy mode.

For higher-end, there is the Hori RAP 4 for $150, PS4 compatibility, quality Hori stick and buttons, pretty much the best you can get ($200 on MadCatz TE2 is not worth)

Or you could try the used route, I bet there are many people selling their old but good sticks on eBay because of PS4.

u/thetok42 · 3 pointsr/StreetFighter

I use this one : the Hori FC4 Pro

I've been using it for almost 2 years now, and it is just beginning to show some signs of fatigue. So I bought another one. I just love this pad

I must note that I play Gief, both in SF5 and SF4 and that I am quite a butter churner (I killed a brand new Hori wireless Tekken5 stick in 2 days, a PDP MKX fightpad in a month, a madcatz SfxT in 2 weeks) :p

I never had problems with the rotating d-pad, nor the sensitivity switch (though I locked both as I wanted them day1, and never unlocked them since, so that may be why).

What I really like about this pad is the sensitivity setting and the 6 + 4 buttons. Of course you can only map 8 buttons in game, but then I have my 6 face buttons for LP/MP/HP and LK/MK/HK, on the left triggers I have PPP (lariat) and KKK (V-reversal) and on the right triggers HP and HK that I use only to activate Vtrigger. This makes it much easier to do things like c.LP os V-Trigger

u/Outer_Spaces · 2 pointsr/PS4

Sure i can link them. The ones im interested in are below.

Hori Pad 4 FPS

Hori Fighting Commander 4

MKX Fight Pad (Releasing on April 1st)

You probably havent been able to find any because there are not many out there. I think third party controller makers are having a hard time getting around the DS4 touch pad functionality.

u/raohthekenoh · 2 pointsr/Fighters

Try a hori fighting commander. Great pad designed for fighters.

u/CkPhX · 2 pointsr/Fighters

It's okay. I sometimes fuck myself up by hitting the middle of button of the DS Pad (cause I fat finger it), but other than that it's just like any other pad. I'm hoping they port PS3 TE sticks for the PS4 SF5, but I'm not holding my breath. PS: Battery life blows on the DS4.

For setting it up at events, it's not complicated as long as people disconnect the DS4 that they connected. Pretty much someone else can make it super complicated for everyone else.

Edit: If you're looking for a alternative pad you could maybe look into something like this

It was on sale the other day for $29, so you could either get it asap or wait for it to go on sale again.

u/imlouisrussell · 2 pointsr/killerinstinct

Xbox One or PC? With reference to the MKX pad, I'm assuming Xbox One. If PC, the Hori Fighting Commander 4 is the one to beat:

HORI Fighting Commander 4 Controller for PlayStation 4/3

As far as Fight Sticks go, it's hard to beat anything Hori for price and the Hayabusa Stick and Kuro buttons are truly great:

HORI Real Arcade Pro.V Kai Fighting Stick for Xbox One, Xbox 360, & Windows PC

If you're a fan of Sanwa Denshi parts instead, I personally bought an old, MadCatz Tournament Xbox 360 fight stick on Craigslist for $60 (may be able to find some for less) and installed the Brooks Universal PCB in it. Most of the installation is insanely easy unless you choose to solder the present USB cable to the board like I did. Since this PCB is Universal, it works on all platforms (save Wii U):

Hope this helps!

u/MachinaeZer0 · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

For anyone looking for a ps4 pad to play with or use for dual modding, the Hori FC4 is down to 35 bucks on amazon: Link.

Link to my original post

I guess that even though the post was getting upvotes, as it is a thing one needs to play Street Fighter games at a price that people would surely like to know about, the mods determined it be relegated to the daily thread where it may fall through the cracks for some readers. Ah well. Hopefully anyone interested in a useful deal will happen to see this in the next eleven hours.

Hope the mods will consider allowing people to post peripheral deals in the future, as I don't think they come by often enough to clog the main feed. Just my opinion, of course.

u/insanityper · 2 pointsr/Fighters
u/AnBearX · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

Check something like Amazon out, and search for "hori" and see what pops up. I hear the FC4 has a track record, check it out

u/thatHermit · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

Practice and take breaks often. Your brain needs time to digest what it just learned. With time, it'll come naturally. I like to compare it to MMO's in a way. The same way you would grind for gear or whatever, you grind your combos until your really proficient at it. Eventually you'll get so good that even new characters will be a quick learning experience (execution wise, not footsie wise).

Don't let anyone tell you you can't do it on a controller. I can name like 10 pro's of the top of my head that prove that wrong.

I do however, recommend a controller with all the buttons on the face like this one

But it's not necessary. Use whatever you're comfortable with.

u/fluffytubesocks · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you enjoy using a pad and wanna switch it up you can try and get one of these. I have no experience with these in particular, however I have heard very good things about the hori fc4.

u/not_a_llama · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

Will this controller work well for the PC? Do I need to install special drivers or perform obscure steps to make it work?

u/Spockrocket · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you want to use an actual stick, I'd say it's probably not worth getting the Alpha. Miniature sticks such as the Alpha and the Hori Fighting Stick Mini tend to be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time, and are made using lower quality parts than full-size sticks. If you want a stick, the cheapest one I'd recommend would probably be the Qanba Carbon. I own one and it's a fairly nice stick for beginners. Technically it's not a PS4 controller, but Street Fighter 5 and a few other games support it in Legacy Mode. Check to see if the other fighting games you have support Legacy controllers. If they do, this is a great option for your price range. Otherwise, your next best bet is probably the Qanba Drone.

If you want a pad, the revamped fightpad pro is a good choice. I've never used one but the new model has gotten significantly better reviews than the problematic previous model. Personally I went with the Hori FC4, but the price has gone significantly up since that model isn't being manufactured anymore. The newer model is only $40 though, so that fits in your budget.

u/criticalchocolate · 2 pointsr/StreetFighter

> no problem, i also played melee for about a year and then transitioned to this game, this is my first sf game. I love melee but i can honestly say i haven't looked back

buy a fight commander 4, aside the default ps4 controller imo its the best pad to play on, good features , good quality and the 6 button layout is perfect for SF games. also the controller is not TOO expensive

heres a less feature filled on, but equally good

If you want a quick lowdown on whats not on the cheaper model is, its missing the repositional d-pad as well as the dpad diagonal sensitivity adjuster (this helps for more rigid controls or looser controls for easier circular motions). The shape is also slightly different but thats not a biggy :)

u/Sonomatic · 1 pointr/Skullgirls

Hmmm, ive actually been looking at the Ps4 Fightpad here: buttons aligned traditionally, i think one of the things that bends me out of shape with how it is currently is the triggers mess me up for the H attacks, brain doesnt get it. So this might be a decent investment (and with inputmapper i can use it on my PC) However if there's something bad about Horis let me know, i have an old hori gem pad for xbox 360 and it works great.

u/slowww2 · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I've got the ps3 Madcatz SFxTekken fight pad which works really well, but it's pretty expensive on Amazon now. Haven't used it before, but this HORI pad is great for the price. I'm looking to get a fightstick eventually, but my pad will have to do for now. I was so excited when I found out SFV lets you use ps3 peripherals, it feels much better than the ps4 controller

u/bigGuy_4U · 1 pointr/MortalKombat

I second this.

I've just started playing MKX a couple of months ago and wanted to play it seriously and try to be competitive.

Only thing I had was the 360 controller which sucks balls.

You don't want to use an analog stick you want to use a good D-pad and the 360 D-pad sucks.

I didn't know how much I would be into this game or not so I got this $20 fightpad by PDP which was wayy better than my expectations for it. I highly recommend it for the price.

If you really like the game and want something better get this

I just got mine today and it does feel noticeably better than the PDP pad.

I think some more serious people use fight sticks and hitboxes and other strange controllers but I don't know ab any of that shit.

u/chocolatekeith · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

To anyone here who knows anything about building PS4 arcade sticks, I'm looking into building one. I hear taking apart a PS4 controller for the parts might be necessary. Is there a wired controller (3rd party or otherwise) that's known to be easy to take apart? So far, this looks like the most appropriate.

u/F-b · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

(new player)

I play SFV on PC with a dualshock 3. I like the controller but the D-pad hurts my thumb so I use my t-shirt to do my movements more smoothly.

I wanted to know if there's an accessory like this kind of D-pad that I can add above my PS3 or PS4 controller.

Otherwise, do you recommand this model ?

My priority is to get a smooth d-pad, precise of course, but not something that burns my thumb like the dualshock 3.

Thank you.

u/GravelvoiceCatpupils · 1 pointr/Guiltygear

I used this one for awhile but I don't like it too much -

This is the one I'm using currently -

Years ago I used to just use a PS1/PS2 pad with a converter.

Honestly I haven't really found a pad I like all that much. Sega Saturn controller or something like that would probably be the best but yeah.

u/jshrmstrng · 1 pointr/fightcade

I recommend this for fighting games, I use it myself on PC

u/nekoegi · 1 pointr/Brawlhalla

Buy this and you'll never want for a better brawlhalla control setup. Next patch has fixes for it, but it still works well currently.

The dpad is phenomenal. Other people seem to have answered your arcade stick question so I'll just dump this here.

u/MidnightDemon · 1 pointr/MortalKombat

I was looking at the Hori FC4 which looks pretty nice.

u/HokutoNoChen · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

It looks to be a different model, notice that it has symmetrical handles as opposed to the Hori Commander 4's banana handle thingie.

Any other differences you know of?

u/BaC0nz13 · 1 pointr/Fighters

I have never used a fighting stick before. I am going to buy a fight pad instead. I am looking to play UMvC3 on PC (and maybe PS4). My xbox one controller does not work anymore. The RB button is broken. I used my xbox one controller for MKX, the D-pad seemed okay.

  • HORI Fighting Commander 4


  • HORI Fighting Commander

    From what I have read the Fighting Commander 4's d-pad is more reliable. I have read that some of the Fighting Commander's d-pad break pretty easy. Would it be better to spend the $65 over the $40?
u/code7747 · 1 pointr/INJUSTICE

what about something like this or this

u/ilovehentai · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

100s of controller that work on pc, don't need a ps4/xbone controller. Search "fightpad pc" (try xbox too) and lots pop up

I have this one for ps4, great pad. Think it should work on PC native too.

u/vegathechosen · 1 pointr/retrogaming

You can get a emulator front end for pc which works great it's also much easier to play mame aka arcade games on pc vs retro pie and obviously youu have more storage, like someone said above stay away from the packages of controllers, first those things should be 5 bucks a piece, not 80 for 3. Plus you don't want nes controller if you're emulating because you have access to so many consoles and with different controller layouts it's best to get one to suit your needs perfect. If you want to go cheap I'd honestly suggest this controller you can find it cheaper usually around 10 bucks PS3 Versus Controller
I use it as my player two but honestly you'd be better off getting a couple of those. But since you're willing to spend 80 on garbage might as well spend it on something quality? I'd get one of the above controllers, and do what I did and get the best of the best for yourself Imo this is the best

HORI Fighting Commander 4 Controller for PlayStation 4/3

Both work on retropie as well and I use them to emulate on my pc and retropie and I couldn't be happier.

u/DakotaAven · 1 pointr/Guiltygear

I haven't tried it myself, but the Hori Fighting Commander 4 has a more ergonomic grip. But I also hear issues about dpad due to it being adjustable.

Here's an amazon link

u/Nanai87 · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I bought a Hori Fighting Commander 4
( )

is this the same you have or is this an older one? I should get it delivered tomorrow, would be great if it had an X-input switch but I can find nothing about it on the site.

u/katzey · 1 pointr/ffxiv

Has anyone used a Hori Fighting Commander? I'm thinking about buying one. I'm also really into Tekken recently and dashing on a stick is fucking hard, so I'd be using it there too

the only problem I see with the hori fighting commander is that it only has two shoulder buttons. as far as I understand, these shoulder buttons act as a modifier for your front facing buttons. will it be an issue that I only have two modifier options?

I'd effectively have 6x3=18 buttons, whereas a standard pad I'd have 4x5=20 buttons

u/Iimitz · 1 pointr/xboxone

I have the PS4 FC4 coupled with a Brook converter. The FC4 allows changing the orientation degree of the D-pad which is awesome to enhance directional comfort. Will this Xbox FC version include the same feature? I see it is also missing the extended left palm rest which is also really comfortable.

"This pad is a pure performer with the industry's best D-Pad" - uh we'll see about that...

IMO this is the best fight pad to date; great build quality and useful features:

u/HappierShibe · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

As far as thumb blisters:
This is normal for most people, you will develop callouses, then it won't be an issue anymore. Some inputs literally require blistering speed; Walking 720's are notorious for this.

Wrist or thumb joint Pain shouldn't happen. If it is, then you are gripping the controller too tightly (wrist), or pressing down too hard (thumb-joint). If you still have problems, consider picking up the hori FC4 ( - It lets you unlock the dpad and rotate it in place up to 20 degrees. With around 12 degrees of rotation it brings the vertical axis of the d-pad into perfect alignment with the handle and transforms into the most comfortable gamepad I have ever held. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't matter how hard you gripped it at that point, you shouldn't get any wrist pain.

u/ShockwaveMTME · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

A fair warning though: Getting used to Stick takes time and practice. They are quite expensive too (at least the good ones are).

So if you are going to get into fighting games on PC but don't want to deal with sticks you could get a fightpad which will have a better d-pad than any xbox controller ever had (as far as i can tell) for about the same price.

If you're interested you could always visit the sub of the game you want to try and ask there what people use and how well it works for the given game.

u/GeneralRose · 1 pointr/RetroPie

HORI Fighting Commander 4 Controller for PlayStation 4/3

Something like that seems like it would be awesome.

The iBuffalo SNES controllers are pretty cheap and have a nice build quality.

You could also get some USB Sega Genesis controllers (as Genesis maps terribly to a snes layout).

u/rific · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

I'm confused. Is that one not the same as the one that came before the Commander 4? This one? I've had this thing for years.

u/Ovis_Cantus · 1 pointr/killerinstinct

HORI Fighting Commander

Mortal Kombat X Pad

PDP Versus (this one isn't actually that good, but it's cheap and easily replaced)

Pad options are fairly limited. You can also just stick with an Xbone/360 pad, which work just as well.

u/Hmongster · 1 pointr/StreetFighter

any feedback/reviews on the hori controller pad 4, they actually on sale right now on amazon ($30 instead of 45), i may take one as a spare controller

u/ddukesterman · 1 pointr/GameSale

It is not skinned with any MKX art. It is just like this,

u/chuyqwerty · 1 pointr/Brawlhalla

So you use Joy2Key for that? You could use that Mayflash adapter so that you dont need sofware.

I use the Wii Classic (non pro version) and the only other controller I tried that I like (I bought like 5 or more, no joke) is the Hori Commander 4 (

This one is plug and play with no adapter (but you cant taunt unfortunately, unless BMG allows us to bind taunts to buttons). So I might switch to this one soon cuz it does feel more responsive than my Wii Classic (I think the adapter adds a bit of delay).

Edit: Also, it works on PS4 so once Brawlhalla hits PS4 and there are lan tourneys using the PS4, we ready son. lol
