    The Fighting Edge looks clean and simplistic but I understood it has alot of flashy features.
    Besides the 2 side lights what other features do your new arcade stick have?

    Glowy stick?
    Remappable buttons on the fly?
    Newly designed joystick?
    Bigger than TE yet smaller than VLX Premium?
    Intuitive handle design carrying over from HrapV's?
    Quality of life improvements all around?

    In addition to rumblz' question;

    1. What will be the warranty policy regarding the stick? Is it the standard warranty or will there be an extended one given that the stick is of an entirely new design?
    2. Is the touch panel a "plug and play" module that can be replaced by users in the event that it fails? Specifically:
    • If not, is there some other method of using start/select functions being added to the stick somewhere?
    • If it can be replaced, how would one go about getting a replacement? Will Hori be selling replacements? And if so, how much will they cost?
    3. What sort of layout does the stick use? It looks like the NAMCO Noir layout, but I wasn't certain.
    4. Similar to question 2, what options will be available in the event of the LED strips failing?
    5. Will there be replacement Kuro buttons offered for retail sale?
    6. Will standard Sanwa buttons fit in place of the stock buttons? Primary reason for asking, the mandated color scheme of the Xbox 360 version pretty much ruins the sleek look.
    7. Will replacement Hayabusa sticks be offered for retail?
    8. Will a carrying case be offered? If so, are there any pictures available, and also, what will be the price?

    I noticed it has a plexi on top, would it be easy to swamp out the artwork? I'm planning to leave it as is (it looks really nice and clean), but I'm curious about it. Thanks in advance!

    Looks like it will not be practical to get working for both systems due to capacitive touch buttons.

    The Fighting Edge looks clean and simplistic but I understood it has alot of flashy features.
    Besides the 2 side lights what other features do your new arcade stick have?
    Aside from the LED lights on the side, here is a list of new features found on the Fighting EDGE:
    • Stick lever and all of the buttons will be using HORI proprietary parts. (developed with top player SAKO and through compiling user/top player feedback from JP and US)
      * HORI Original Stick "Hayabusa" - Utilizes new V-Cut Housing Cam design which allows for faster and smoother input
      * HORI Original Button "Kuro" - Newly improved button
    • Touch sensor START, SELECT, Tournament Mode (ON/OFF), and Button Configuration.
      * Tournament Mode - Activated when held down for 3 seconds and turns off all touch sensor button functions.
      * Button Configuration - Activated when held down for 3 seconds and allows for users to remap buttons
       on the arcade stick rather than in the in-game settings.
    • Side LED lights that illuminate in Blue, or flashes Red when the stick receives vibration signals from the console for added visual effects.
      (ie. When receiving damages)
    • Mat added to the bottom for comfort and to prevent stick from sliding.

    Yes the acrylic face plate can be unscrewed and taken off. However as the manufacturer we do not recommend that you take apart the stick due to the fact that it will void the warranty.

    It's pretty sexy and makes me wish I played on a stick, though I must ask what happens if the LED touch panel stops working? Is it easily replaceable on its own or would something like that require investing in an entirely new stick?

    Yup there are a lot of new features on this stick and have been developed from compiling feedback from users and top players from the US and JP. Aside from being able to remap your button layout on the stick and not through the in-game settings, your reconfigured buttons are saved within the stick so that you can plug and play without having to reconfigure your buttons each time. Definitely saves you time at tournaments!!

    This product is meant to be used for either the PS3 or the Xbox 360 (not both) and as the manufacturer we do not recommend that you modify your stick due to the fact that it voids your warranty.

    Thank you very much!! In regards to the internal images, we do not have any internal images as of now... There should be some reviews that will be coming out in the coming weeks that will most likely go over the insides. However, we do not recommend modifying your stick as the manufacturer due to the fact that this will void your warranty.

    Guys, play nice. I'm glad Hori is here. They are here to help. Just be patient and the community will come up with the rest of the answers. I understand exactly where they are coming from.

    That being said, I want to thank them for offering their support to the forum members here.

    I've a question about those new buttons. Are they more silent than regular Hori/Sanwa parts? I would love some built in silent push buttons for nightly sessions without waking people up.

    A 90-day warranty with a fightstick as complex as this is a bit scary. And if it's not easy to retrofit with other arcade parts, this becomes a very risky buy. As cool as it looks, I'll keep my distance until the reviews come in...

    ^ Just wait. This was JUST released in Japan. Information should be trickling in any moment. Some people in the US have the stick already and I'm sure they'll share.

    I wouldn't be surprised if our very own ShinJN is putting together a meaty review.

    Thank you for your responses.

    Although I think most people would agree with me when I say that, the thought that the touch panel could potentially fail and you might be stuck with a half worthless stick is EXTREMELY troublesome to say the least. Hopefully Hori has considered the fact that part of what makes a stick viable in the "serious" market is the ability to replace failed parts quickly and cost-effectively; and will seriously consider offering replacement parts, ESPECIALLY for the touch panel. For that matter, I hope it's replaceable to begin with.

    Guess we'll just have to wait for more information regarding the internals on this one.

    Thank you Hori for the answer on this! We really do appreciated all the support you have given to this forum and the community! I plan to preorder this once I saved enough money and sell one of my old stick (This seems to have everything I want on a stick and I look foward to it's release here in the states).

    I seriously doubt they will ever sell a replacement lcd panel (Its not an lcd panel by the way)just like any electronics you have if it breaks after the warranty you either get it repaired or buy a new one. If you buy a tv with touch panel or a tablet pc and after a year or so using it breaks do you think the manufacture is going sell you a replacement? I have used touch screen units for years and years with never any issues.

    I doubt the quality of this touch panel is on par with an $800 iphone or a $2000 TV. That's not a valid comparison in my book. We'll just have to see how dependable/durable they are. I am hoping for the best. The stick looks incredible.

    Love the design, just not feeling the Namco Noir layout. May I ask why your company chose this over the Vewlix layout? I'll probably cave in & get this eventually once I hear long-term reviews about the reliability. Was hoping for a 1-year warranty instead of just 90-days but oh well.

    I know sako prefers the Noir/Astro style layout because it's easier for him to plink using the extra buttons. Actually sako and Daigo map the select/back button to the furthest buttons (bottom right) to give them added inputs when doing combos/links.

    it is a very valid comparison both things I mentioned used restive touch buttons same as this stick this is not the type of screen you see on the new tablets/smartphone its old tech much simpler than an lcd
