One of the contributors at Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN have rekindled their love of space sims thanks to being in on the Elite: Dangerous alpha which has precipitated a quest to find the best joystick currently on the market. Three contenders appear in this review, the Saitek X52 Pro, the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and the Speedlink Black Widow which refer to themselves as Hands On Throttle-And-Stick or flight sticks and the innuendo is as thick as you might expect. Read the full review in all its smutty glory right here.
"I’ve spent far too long thinking about and researching joysticks lately, primarily as a result of playing Elite: Dangerous. One thing I haven’t established during all that time is whether ‘joystick’ is the right word for a genre of game controller which also throws out terms like ‘flight stick’ and ‘HOTAS.’"
