  1. While I don't think I would have bought this soon either way I am very dismayed at the price. It couldn't possibly be that difficult to make a controller, even one of this high quality, could it? (I actually don't know)

    I would hope that they consider reducing the price. In many ways this smacks for fan exploitation, it is quite a high markup even compared to other "Vocaloid" themed merchandise.

  2. It's not really a needed controller—-it's just one of those ultra luxury accessories—-kind of like pimping out your cell phone in diamonds.

    They still have the same functions, but for the sake of luxury has dozens more appealing and aesthetic designs for those who have fat cash xD

    I would like to have it though—-it better be wireless and small(-er than the ps3 controller) D:

    1. Small ? it is arcade sized, so it won't be small (approx. 27x17x3in, and about 12lb). and since the length of the cable is given, I doubt it will be wireless.

      1. MAKES ME SAD. ( ;´Д`)

        OH. Arcade size—-I can't believe I thought it would be like another controller—-so it's a peripheral all on it's own—kind of like Guitar Hero Guitars and DDR dance mats?

        Wow that is uhm. Interesting.

        1. Well, judging from the shape, it would have been a really awkward controller anyway =)
          And yes, it is a new peripheral. Its is probably so you can fully emulate the arcade experience into the comfort of your home (I think I sound like a saleswoman there, but you get the point). And, also, it is a pretext to release expensive merchandise =p
          What I'm wondering is, are you supposed to put that on your lap, or on a table in front of you ? because it would be a bit too heavy to be used during a long time, especially since you are supposed to hit it.
