I saw €29.99 initially and thought for a second you were maybe blowing things out of proportion. But €229.99? That's ridiculous.

Love the idea. But too rich for my blood.



1. Way too expensive!!! When you compare to other classics, this is going to fail harder than the PS1 classic lol Yes it has 2 real joysticks that would cost hundreds of dollars each, but the only game to really utilize it best is just to play old school SF2 and Dark Stalker?

2. Having Alien vs Predator would've been a huge win for me as I've always wanted to replay it! But its actually a 3 player arcade game and there's only two joysticks so that really sucks.

3. The actual design seems like it could be awkward to use. How did they imagine people using this? Like on a coffee table in front of their sofa? Two people sitting on the couch beside each other with this on their lap elbowing each other?

4. Capcom would be better off if they just released those games in a physical and/or digital collection so gamers can just play with their own controller, and if they wanted to cough out money for an expensive arcade then its their choice.  Dont force these arcade sticks on us when we just want the games.



I know a good arcade stik doesn't come cheap, and that's basically 2 of them in one, but 229€, come on! That's way too expensive except for a couple collectors.



I don't see how this is a good deal at all
