    Why do I think thats ugly? Might be just the picture but it looks too narrow yet too long.
    Might just be the image...it's very hard to judge a stick by looks alone until you really use it.No homo

    Aside from the box design and layout, are there any major changes?
    With God, all things are possible.

    The words "Hype", "Community", "Salty", and "Troll" have lost meaning due to overuse.

    Looks cool and potentially closer to the Vewlix panel than the TE.

    The start button placement looks like it could be a problem. With buttons 7 and 8 capped though, I don't think it'd be any closer than on an actual panel (2p).

    Is this only available through the Hori store?

    Does it mean that this kind of stick will replace the current hrap design on all platforms?
    Anyway it looks smart. It would be great if it was built with aluminum.
  • AlecAlec SD REMIX Joined: Posts: 170
    Interesting. I'm curious what the underside looks like (as usual). Also interested in knowing the weight and dimensions.

    That was only the prototype, although it's likely that the HRAP VX for the XBox 360 will be white.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    HRAP 3s got a US release so I'm sure HRAP Vs will to. What I really want is an SE version that is actually attainable.

    Is the stick still this shape? Thought that one was supposed to be a mock up.

    Just wondering, but does anyone know if the HRAP V SA also opens like that Vewlix?

    No screws on top at all - so it must be bottom-panel opening only, right?

    That stick looks beautiful, and I love the button layout. I just ordered the standard ed madcatz stick for now as my first stick, but some time in the spring or whenever when I have more cash, I'll have to look into picking up that Hori. Not that many sticks with the two horizontal rows with one button offset like that.

    Use the two left buttons for PPP and KKK and the three other buttons for LMH, and you've got a nicely oriented setup. That was the layout I was thinking of going with if/when I built my own stick.

    12800 yen is about, what, $135-150 plus import charges?

    I could care less about putting any kind of art on my stick, but I'm pretty sure the top panel is removable. Yeah, It doesn't have exposed bolts on the top of the panel, but I bet it does have studs and bolts holding it in place.

    I'm definitely waiting for a US release. I'm just sick and tired of crazy international shipping charges for anything over 5 lbs on top of the vendor surcharges. It's just gotten silly. If you want reasonable shipping you have to wait months for it to arrive otherwise you pay ridiculous money for 7-10 day delivery.

    I'm hoping another color option becomes available, too. I'm kind of sick of black-colored controllers (painted most of my customized T5's for this reason) and would like to see more off-white controllers.

    The V-SA prototype most of us saw was off-white. Why did Hori change the color for the production version???

    what's wrong with off white? that shit looks cleannn!

    Great find. Based on that we should be able to get it in America by the end of the year, too bad that when you add the shipping charges the total price stacks up to around $200, but I guess it is always like that with pay-asia. Good thing the stick is available though.

    Ha. It's worse up North. Canadians have to pay those 'crazy international shipping charges' for shit that comes from the States even.

    I really wish they would stop putting turbo features in these sticks. It would look much nicer and cleaner without them.

    Wow, whoever said it doesn't have controller cable storage was wrong. This thing has everything. Nice new pics and everything.
