    It could be good for the upcoming Tekken 7 DLC, featuring Negan from The Walking Dead.

    That's £200 for an arcade controller? Wow that's about £30 of parts...

    Ah yes, but its a gaming device (+25%) and it has RGB (add another 25%)

    And of course, that artwork doesn't come cheap.

    That said it looks reasonably well made (as much as you can tell from the publicity photographs) so if it floats your boat...

    So they can fund this that will only be mostly used within the e-sports crowd and the odd person who wants a classic arcade experience, yet they can't fund a left handed mouse and need to abuse kickstarter for that? Well OK then.

    Make me one for £30 then. Go on. I'll give you £200 for it if it looks ANYTHING at all like that.

    Please also ensure the parts function correctly, and are tried and tested. Make sure to gain advice from professionals that use these devices as well. While you're at it, you could ensure that the switches can be swapped for tighter or softer counterparts, or even swap the buttons around..

    I think you can see where I'm going.

    Folk saying "that's only £40 in parts for a £200 phone". If it's £40 in parts, make one and sell them at £160 profit for each one. Easy money.

    Re: Razer readies Panthera Evo fighting stick

    There are some decent kits out there which have everything you need. You could fabricobble something fairly decent looking that would work for about £30 but the software is the issue. Might not have the graphics on the box but a plain black box drilled correctly would actually not be too hard to do if you have the kit.

    MadCatz made one for £50, kits cost £25, several others of even better quality to the first two seem to be going for about £75.... so call it £100 and that'd be reasonable. £120, if you used APEM components.

    But at £200 for the Razer one?
    That's almost Thrustmaster Warthog money, so I'd expect Thrustmaster level quality...!
