I went to the local video game shop and they had a different one than that and it was pretty nice. U could switch off the joystick nobs. One was the standard ball you see in the arcades and the other was similar to the joystick you posted. I was really thinking about getting it. I still may, but I'm gonna wait for some more fighting games to come out.

I thought about getting one but I've been so happy with the bundled controller that I haven't felt the need to replace it.

Looks pretty cool. Sounds like vaporware. I'd like to see one with a trackball option. A dual flight-stick model could be cool for any upcoming MECH games.

Actually you can buy it right now from the site I listed. I wouldn't though, not for $200. Still say Ouch.

I like the dual flight stick idea though. I have a feeling if they made all of these that I would end up with a closet full of controllers though. :p

The various console adapters are currently undergoing final development/manufacture, and will begin to become available in mid-February. As the adapters arrive, we will contact you via email to arrange for shipment of the adapter of your choice. Check here for further updates!

You can't get it for the XBOX yet.
