    I hope it does not have a crazy 200 quid price tag on it!!!!

    Prob 150 would be the max I go to!!! But once you are done with it then what??

    But this is coming from the guy with a pair of maraccas and a fishing rod from his Dreamcast!!

    I read a report a couple of weeks ago (can't rememeber where) that said there were 3 games in development that would also use the Steel Battalions (Tekki) controller. That definitely pushed me closer to buying one. Now just to see the pricetag when it's released.

    I could never sell my maraccas (even though they are silly money on ebay!!) as they are tooooo good, I have 2 pairs, and they are great for parties (as long as you do not 'accidentally' hit each other!!)

    My budget might need tightening, but it looks like I might get to see what all the fuss is about afterall. :)

    I am seriously considering this now. Can I justify £130 though...

    Does anyone know if this monster controller can be used as a regular XBox controller? What about a PC controller?

    It would sure help justify the price. :)

    I'm with Neil on this one, had Tekki since JAP launch last year and it is truly stunning, build quality of the controller is unreal and the cool factor is through the roof :D

    So £130 seems pretty reasonable, like everyone has already said not only are there more games in development but it is a nice piece of gaming history and a wicked toy :) and when you get bored of it the box is big enough to make a decent coffee table ;)
