    I wish for this and a little room where I can build a replica Madcat head with three monitors and a chair which thumps every time I take a step in my massive robot...

    I think I need a lie down now.

    Razer producing an outlandish controller / device / gadget design but not saying when/if they are going to bring it to market???

    That's so very out of character for them*

    *It's not out of character at all.

    It would be nice if they dropped the touch screen to bring it down to Earth-level pricing. As it is a £350 controller isn't too affordable.

    Touch-screens are dirt cheap these days. Hell, DX.com will sell you a seven-inch capacitive tablet with Android 4.0 for under $90 (<£60), and that's an entire tablet computer. A simple USB-connected touch-screen can be had wholesale for a lot less - I'd be surprised if it cost Razer more than £30 to add to the controller, so say a retail price increase of £60 over a touch-screen-free version.

    Translation of the above; Razer are charging out the ass again because they can.

    It's a shame, because it looks really friggin' awesome. But the sheer cost expenses makes me cringe.

    Awesome, but a tad excessive for a single game imo. Either way, it will sell.

    I will buy two of them, you always need to have a back up. Having your peripherals fail in mid-game is NOT a valid excuse to lose a league match.

    MechWarrior this is your Khan!

    @The_Beast. Razer makes excellent gear for a decent price, they are very good at understanding the gaming market and creating products that gamers want. That is such a rare combination, dont be a hater
