Here is our review of the Daija Arcade Stick for Xbox.
Experience fighting games like never before with an arcade stick that has been designed with professional eSports players. Built from premium-quality materials and fully customizable, the Daija Arcade Stick offers unrivalled professional performance.
The Daija Arcade Stick was designed in collaboration with Kayane, a leading pro eSports player who became a world record holder for the number of podium placements in fighting game tournaments when she was only 20 years old.
Every detail has been considered in the design of this officially licensed Xbox stick, which offers eSports performance. With the intelligent placement of the buttons made by a leading brand among professional players, and intuitive software for quickly and easily customizing the buttons, the Daija Arcade Stick provides quality, stability and incredible precision.
A textured palm rest, two different sticks, and a button lock feature to prevent accidental presses ensure an incredibly comfortable user experience that elevates you to the next level.
What’s in the box?
The box contains the arcade stick, a 3m detachable USB-A to USB-C cable, two stick heads, and two tools to quickly and easily customise your arcade stick.
A Closer Look
The Daija Arcade Stick looks really good and handles really well – you can use it on a surface or on your lap, whatever works for you.
The stick comes with two different joystick heads and all the tools you need to swap them out. Basically, figure out which is the best one for you and use the tools to very simply change it – it really was that simple. All the tools and the other head, along with the cable for the stick are nicely hidden away on the inside of the stick – just press the two side buttons and lift – easy!
The box also contains a blank customisable sheet that you can place on the top of the stick if you want to create your own!
The stick works with either an Xbox or a PC – there is a small switch on the side that selects which you are using, then once you have done that, just plug it in using the cable and that’s pretty much it! If you are using it with a PC, the first time you connect it you may be asked to install a driver.
There is a mode selector switch that enables you to configure the use of the stick depending on what games you are playing.
Talking of configuration, all the buttons are completely configurable for whatever you need and whatever you are playing. Just download the NACON Daija Arcade Stick software onto your PC or Mac and start making changes.
There is even a 3.5mm jack on the stick for you to plug in your headset if you want to.
The stick is very responsive and easy to use – even for extended periods of time. I certainly found it easier playing certain games with this stick than I did using a normal Xbox controller.
If you are in the market for a high quality, configurable stick then you really do need to take a look at this one.
The Daija Arcade Stick for Xbox is available now priced around €279.90.
