    Too expensive for what it offers. Rather stick to my Raspberry Pi 3 or OG Xbox using Ninja/Coinops 8/FBA

    I have seen these capcom shaped devices on a few ChinaHeld sites. Been for sell to the US for sometime. I’m shocked they are actually made by capcom!

    That's a pretty underwhelming line-up of games. Strider and Ghouls 'N Ghosts are the only ones that make it worth considering. The price is ludicrous.

    This isn't the "real thing" though, it's just an arcade stick with 16 roms built in. Unless you're a hardcore Capcom fan or you collect absolutely everything released by every gaming company, I doubt collectors are gonna care much about this.

    Get one of the better emulator sticks off of eBay.

    I’ll stick to my CMVS system and Supergun CPS2 setup.

    The SNES mini and the 8bitdo arcade sticks are a more compact and practical alternative also. :)

    Well, we should be used to the cycle by now. Nintendo releases a thing, it sells like crazy. Everybody else does a half-assed job of trying to copy that thing, nobody buys it. I'm sure it's just a matter of time until Sony tries selling cardboard that you can attach to your PS4.

    what the hell man, they couldn't have just beefed up the capcom beat em up collection and just made it an arcade collection?

    and they wonder why we use emulators and roms.

    The marketing team who came up with this should be fired.

    -It's a years too late to the scene
    -16 games (Half being CPS1) is too pitiful, especially for the 200+ euro price
    -The design is hideous, and will be uncomfortable for the 2nd player if they rest their wrists
    -It never mentioned netplay (only useless leaderboards)

    Just get a $150 pandora box dual control stick, and flood your senses with 1,500+ games.

    450NZD and up? I'll beleive it when I see it ant not a moment before. Perhaps they only intend to import half a dozen units for the entire country.

    Wtf its 200, I was expecting 50ish and didnt want it for that....

    Can it be used as a fighting stick for other games at least? And if it can is it missing anything?

    I mean, a decent arcade stick/buttons is fairly expensive, but not that fuckin' expensive. :lol:

    And for god's sake, if you're gonna charge $200 and make it that ugly, you gotta include a lot more than 16 Capcom games.

    I'm sure it can, and it seems fairly complete. I guess they had to make it $200 if it includes two sticks and sets of buttons, but still gonna be really iffy for consumers when that's about the cost of a current-gen game console (used/refurb).
