    The game does look amazing. But I heard that because it comes with that controler, it is going to retail for around $150. And I think I might be embarassed to have a controler that big lying around my house ... it is like a cockpit or something!

    I'm going to pick it up when it comes out. It's hard to believe that, perhaps, the deepest mech-sim ever, is going to be on a console! [​IMG]
    I have to believe that the developers of this game pretty much figure that this is going to be a VERY niche-type of game. Price wise, this probably isn't going to be a huge seller.
    ...but, stranger things have happened. [​IMG]

    I'm getting this game. Man, when I first saw the videos of the game in action I was drooling. That was before I even knew about the controller. I must have this game.

    I'm so there for this game! $160 is nothing for that huge controller, I know someone who paid $180 just for the Virtual On DC controller.

    I'm figuring at the very least I'll be able to recycle the controller in a movie [​IMG]
    Think about if this game supports X-Box Live. Mmmmmmmmmmm
    Where can I find movie clips?

    Tekki Online has been confirmed (for Xbox, and possibly PC). However, the first game will not support Xbox Live.

    No insider required[​IMG]. Man this game looks awesome. I hope they can put the controller to good use by releasing several games to take advantage of it. Even at the price of a Cube I'll be picking this up whenever it's released.

    Maybe they're planning on Steel Batallion sequels, to make the purchase of that awesome controller more worthwhile? I'll be picking it up regardless.

    Japanese price announced, $161 US

    I'm expecting $149 (knocking on wood for less, but not betting on it)
