hopefully never, sony double-crossing bastards....

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Why? It sold out completely within a couple of weeks of release and regularly sells for $100 or more over MSRP on Ebay.

Anyone know the day this officially hits retail? I'll go check BB this weekend, but I haven't seen anything regarding dates.

It sold out because there weren't that many to begin with, had it been available all along i'm sure they would still be clogging best buys all over the country

They're probably trying to capture the folks who are gonna be buying the new Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

I've got one in the box, just sitting in my closet might be the reason I get H.A.W.X. on the 360 unless someone gets a decent stick in time for the PS3

I looked at two best buys today, neither one had any so far. I'll try to keep an eye out, but I'm going on vacation and won't be around to look for a weak and a half.

b0ner.

For a while, I kept buying a new bundle and selling it because the price kept going too high for me to keep. I'm glad I did that :)

I will get this one for keeps because I really want to play this game. I love my Ace Combat 5 Flightstick Bundle, so I'm pretty anxious to finally play it. I've tried it out without the stick, and the game is not the same.

That's the point of doing limited edition peripherals. Namco and Best Buy aren't looking to take a loss on merchandise that doesn't move. I'm sure this second release will be done in an equally limited run.

If this was more available at Best Buy at launch, I would have picked it up, no doubt, especially combined w/ RZ points and $10 off $75 or 10% off coupons. But since that time, I picked up the game new and a used flight stick set (minus a suction cup) seperately. I haven't played with the stick yet, since I haven't cleaned it, and it'd been many months since last playing the game.

Were there patches included w/ the original bundle, or was that AC5?... If another 10% games coupon (vs. just $10 off), I would be very tempted to pick it up for the bonus goodies and a clean, complete stick.

I think only a faceplate was included with the original.

Damn, I didn't think about using it for HAWX. :dunce:

Good thing I picked it up the first time around, then.

I've checked a few Best Buys; none have it and the employees all have blank looks on their faces when asked about it.

Don't forget IL-2 Sturmovik Birds Of Prey is coming out soon too. I'm looking forward to that more than HAWX and it's supposed to be a true flight sim.

Nice. Yet another reason to have forked out the cash for this.

Is this really a deal when a single link to buy the product hasn't been posted yet, as well as another member reporting they could not find it at any best buy?

They sent our a press release on Tuesday so it's coming, we're just not exactly sure when. It's a deal because this bundle goes for $200-$250 on Ebay new.

I haven't popped the box (been sitting there with the Fry's shipping bands around it since the original release, was holding up my Tivo for about a year :lol:) but I think it -is- a modified Saitek X36. It certainly looks like one.

I wonder if we'll actually have more people playing AC6 online again. I haven't seen a full room since February...

I still haven't got the co-op mission achievements...

Oh and, I love my flight stick and would never sell it. I can't wait to get some more use out of it with future releases.

All Hori HOTAS from the FS2 onward are based off the same components as the Saitek X-45 (Possibly made in the same factory even, the Hori rep only mentioned same parts). Unless you really like Ace Combat 6 or plan to use it for other 360 games, then do not even think of getting this for PC use. It's pretty overpriced for the dated design compared to it's PC counterparts.
