Question for you guys. There is a chance that I’ll be securing a distribution on selling some Hori Sticks. I want to get an idea, how much would you guys be willing to pay for a new HRAP V3 SA (PS3) or a new HRAP VX SA (360)? I can sell other models too such as the VLX but these are the ones that I want to focus on for now. For those who don’t know, they’re the ones that could be considered comparable to the Madcatz TE sticks even though I think they’re better.


#3

I’d be willing to pay amazon.ca’s price for the hrap vx sa. I’d like to try it first.


#4

If you were securing a distribution from Hori wouldn’t that mean you have to sell them at their price regardless…unless you short change yourself in the process?

I think waterloo has a lot of custom stuff still coming from Art…I think. If it’s not coming anymore, I’d probably be interested in a stick, paying no more than an on sale TE would cost.


#5

Sorry I worded that wrong. What I meant was I’ll be getting a load of them from the States at a really good rate to which I can sell them for a competitive price here.

Nilo, to answer your question, my price will be the same if not cheaper than Amazon.ca. When I go to Vegas in a week I’ll be finalizing a few more details then post up my selling price. I’ll be buying two for myself (one for PS3 and one for 360) to demonstrate for people so they can get a feel for it and try it out before they commit.

there were a few people trying out a Hori V3 at heroes world this weekend, and one of the issues was that the start button kept getting pressed several times during 1 round even.

I don’t know if they just had poor dexterity or whatnot but if you’re the type of person who turns off 3P/3K because you frequently press them accidentally, I suggest not using a V3, which has the start button just to the right side of the 3P/3Ks.


#7

i would say that it would have to be the poor dexterity :confused:

Arcana Heart 3 is coming out on console in 2 weeks. Apparently Wolfkrone and other Michigan players are going to pick it up, and I’m hoping some of you guys will give it a try, too. Here’s a quick intro to some of the characters.
