X-Arcade finally releases a 360 adapter for their joysticks, but it's not easy

I love the X-Arcade joysticks I've reviewed in the past. The TankStick is the perfect setup for my MAME machine but I wish I could use it on my Xbox 360 to play Street Fighter IV with. Well X-Arcade has finally released an adapter to let you use it but it's not as easy as you think.

You'll  need a wired Xbox 360 controller and a PS2 adapter to get this to work. Yes, you read that right. You have to have a PS2 adapter to let you use your X-Arcade stick on the 360. It's a very awkward way to get around Microsoft prohibiting third parties from creating direct support devices. You can grab the adapter on November 3 when it's finally released.

Here's the diagram on how to get it all to work on the 360. Yikes!
