Questions about this arcade stick

Post by Andy Dale » Sat Oct 05, 2019 11:05 pm

I want to buy a cheap arcade stick to use on my original Xbox but all the ones that were specifically designed for that system cost more than I would like to spend. So I thought about finding a cheap arcade stick for a PC and a female USB - Xbox adapter cable.

So I'm considering buying these....

My questions are...

1. Will these items do the job or am I totally wrong?
2. Will there be a lot of lag?
3. Is that arcade stick I linked to far too cheap and flimsy that it will probably break in a few weeks? If so I'll find a better one if possible.


Thanks in advance.

The arcade stick looks very cheap and probably wouldn't be very good.
I would wait and get an X-Arcade Joystick and X-Box adaptor 2nd hand on ebay, i got mine for £50 on there last year.
