Re: Hori Fighting Commader Pro 3 [Fightpad] Question
Yeah there's no check availability option there so it may be an online-only product. Try calling your local gamestop retailer first.
If they don't have it just buy it online...
I recommend looking around playasia because they also sell the FC3 pro:
Buy HORI Fighting Commander 3 Pro (PS3) - Play-Asia.com
And the original fighting commander 3 is also for sale there (which I have, btw :P):
Buy Fighting Commander 3 (blue) (PS3) - Play-Asia.com
And as for the madcatz pads...
The first wave of madcatz pads (released with vanilla SF4) are the faulty ones you're talking about, the second wave of pads (released with SSF4) seem to not have this problem.
Hope this helps
EDIT: I completely didn't see that part that you were unable to order online...
In that case I recommend getting a paypal account if you can
