    Pre-ordered and paid for. I am so looking forward to picking this up.

    Only if reviews are awesome (which they aren't, so far).

    I'm seriously considering it.

    If it were playable online, I'd order it in a sec.

    Maybe I should sell my Virtual On twinsticks and raise 50 bucks or so to help offset the price.

    Not a chance. Total waste of money if you ask me. Sure the controller is cool, but you can only use it with one frickin game and maybe a few sequels. Why not spend the money on another console or a video card/processor upgrade?

    $150 for a controller isn't that bad, some people love expensive controllers. Weren't the original Maracas for DC around $90?

    I will not be picking this up. It's just plain to expensive for me right now. The reality is that I'm not much into mech games anyway...

    I will probably end up buying this (though I had only heard that the sequel, not expansion, will have full XBL online gameplay), but not at launch date. I'll read a lot of the final reviews

    Besides, I really hope I'll be playing a lot of (arcade-ish, I know) Mech Assault online for a few months and that may take up most of my gaming time.

    I wish I could. Maybe I could convince someone to pick it up for me as a Christmas present [​IMG] ...
    Is it really going to be XBox Live compatible? Anything to back that rumor up? That would be awesome ...

    I've heard its very realistic and you have a lot of control and it looks great, but I haven't heard anyone comment on whether its fun or not.
