I know a few of us were wondering how this mech game/controller would fare later in it's life. IE, a worthless, overpriced gimmick or, a collectible worth more than we originally paid. Well, check out www.ebay.com and you'll find your answer. It's already selling for AT LEAST the $200 price tag...and it's not even an old game yet! I guess it's not an easy game to get ahold of. I know that my eb only ordered 2, with mine being one of them, and they said that they'd have to special order any more. I also like the look of the footpedals we got here in the States, as compared to the original ones in Japan. I think that the metal pedals look better, imho.
