    Only if I hear good things about it and the price drops. That 40 button controller almost seems like information overload just looking at it.

    Not really into those kind of games, but I must admit this one does look cool. That controller alone must be worth a fortune... I wonder how much money they are losing selling it at 200$. Anyways, I'm hoping my buddy picks up the game and I can borrow it from him later on down the line.

    But Steel Battalion is one of those rare instances when the controller, not the game, is the big story. And we mean huge. Due this winter on Xbox, Steel Battalions is also bundled with a 40-button simulation controller console that's about 2 feet across, with two control sticks, three foot pedals and more. It's an impressive "peripheral" to say the least, and it will come bundled with Steel Battalion, when it ships. In fact, you cannot play Steel Battalion with a regular Xbox controller, according to Capcom. The controller/game bundle is a necessity and not necessarily a way to introduce new hardware into the market.

    OMG!! Mad crazy pimped up props to Knight for da pics!
    Now this explains it all. Is this game getting released in da U.S?
    If so, I highly doubt it will sell well with a price tag of a next-gen console!
    Those controllers for some reason make me think of the old Atari consoles.

    I bet in it's online only Capcom will loss more money than they will loss if it was in the stores as well.

    okay so im the biggest mech fan out there. i still have my robotech luch box i got from korea when i was 6. (and my dukes of hazard) so naturally i hell in love with this game the first time i herd of it. so YES i would pay 200 bucks for this but im betting it will go around 170. BUT the game has to have some sort of upgrade option to keep the game new, via dl online or booster dics. because it would really suck balls to have that tight ass controller and only one game to play it on. if there were dl, patches, mods availiable online then HELL FAQN YEAH im going to buy it.

    look out for robotec its cel shaded maddness.

    game looks like a boring piece of crap. The controller looks huge, and in a couple weeks it will be a oversized paper weight. Whoever buys this game it retarded!
