Hey folks, my name is Ben and I am currently a college student in NY. I live in NYC and I manage a storefront retailing in video games. I've been running the store, along with my boss, and long time friend for 7 years now. Our store is called GamePAD inc, located in Brooklyn for you toiders out there. We've got MvC2, A neo geo arcade for you KOF'ers out there.
To get to the point, I have been very active in the arcade scene for 10+ years now. I'm currently 21 years old, and I have seen alot of action on capcom fighting games. We have a couple of very good players in MvC due to many years of playing and practicing on the game.
Anyways I have interested in designing my own arcade controllers and I have seen the work around here. After researching numerous sources and experience in the arcade industry., I've decided to create my joysticks in Lexan I've managed to design a polycarbonate arcade case that will be durable and well stylish.
I've decided to start a business in making joysticks to pay off my debts from college(go figure) and also enjoy what I do.
