The Shoebox Fightstick Is Made For Cheap Chun-Li Combat

We didn't think things could get sadder in these economically trying times than the Tupperware arcade stick. Well folks, things just went from bad to leap from the nearest skyscraper status.

The Shoebox Fightstick Is Made For Cheap Chun-Li Combat

Using a few Xbox 360 controllers, Happ joysticks and 14 buttons, one modder built two Mad Catz Fightsticks of his own...in a pair of shoeboxes. Apparently Nike boxes can withstand the wear and tear of intense SFIV sessions (but if not, they're not all that difficult to service).

I'm pretty keen on the design, but I'd probably rip those boxes a new one trying to fend off the 2D onslaught of Matt Buchanan. [Kotaku]
