Yep, prefer the all black/no art.
Not really proprietary, it’s just steel and some bolts. You could DIY everything but the molded bottom piece pretty easily.
What would be silly is if they put the connection capability in, but didn’t sell the kit you use to do it.
DING DONG HERE. This looks interesting. Why not just set the sticks right beside one another though! I plan on getting one of these when I hear more details. leaning towards the big one.
Those front screws should be black. It does look like a Voltech. Why no dual pcb? Looks heavy enough to be used as a murder weapon.
All the stick ‘experts’ that are making comments that I haven’t answered yet. I’ll reply soon.
Also! Yes, I will be sending review units out to the community when the time is ready.
Sorry guys, CES is draining, I’m working on pics/writeup to make SRK Tech Talk proud.
For the community.
Mark, will all these stick be available in the UK store for pre-order at some point?
Cant wait for Marks write up, definitely want to see whats under the hood.
Why is the price so steep? i mean for that price i can get a dual console i just dont understand the price.
Steel is a little more expensive than plastic.
I think the tier chart for stick material cost is:
Speaking of Ostrich Leather I wonder if MarkMan ever ended up grabbing one of those?
If anyone would it would be him
lol @ ostrich leather.
After all that research Razor undertook not one person asked or wanted to link two sticks together so why would they do it with this one??
Wouldn’t it have been better to put that money to something more useful or creative?
Can you imagine if this kicked off a trend and groups of friends connected all of their sticks together and attended tournaments at the same time.
I don’t think anyone is claiming to be a stick “expert,” this is just the FGC giving their gut reactions. It’s not complaining (at least not most of it), it’s really just curiosity and excitement. Good luck, I know CES is draining as you said. We look forward to your write up. You should create a separate thread and link to it from this thread. Keep up the good work.
HAHA I can see some guys trying to set the record for longest arcade stick ever at Evo
What if one of the players on this Voltron stick gets salty and wants to bust a Gootecks and throw the stick across the room? “Dude, you broke my stick too” o_O
why would u want to have another stick connected while playing when its not in use. the extra weight on the left or right would probably make your execution worse because you have to counter balance the stick yourself
iirc he said he put his deposit.
its a lot glossier in the live stream… wonder what the bolt panel is for in the front…
I’ve been wondering the same thing. My best guess is that the main front and back pieces are identical, but the one on the back holds a cord compartment in the spot, and the front one just has the single plate over it. But then the headset jack hole would have to be seperatedly drilled on ‘front for Xbox360 version’ pieces after the molding.
Hey Markman, should we start a list of our questions?
