Firstly, I do not mind chun li stick having extras, but I've seen a chun li stick numbered 2020/2000 either in shoryuken's 'new stick' thread or a youtube video. Also the apparent availability of the sticks makes me question how limited this stick is. Well if the stick isn't limited I would feel less guilty in modding it, but at the same time I kinda feel I've been mislead.
*will update post after finding the link to my claim of being numbered 2020/2000
Ya, I'd feel mis-lead as well if that's the case but then again, I didn't buy it mainly for the limited edition aspect. I bought it mainly b/c the crazy looking translucent blue case & 3D lenticular artwork w/that rigid top layer (in addition to the Sanwa parts & design). The limited part was just a bonus for me but to each their own.
Fair enough. I just don't see how there can be so many when there are only 2000. In regards to the guy that said he saw one where it was 2020/2000, I found a youtube video where a guy in the comments section claims that he has 2086/2000. It may be BS but we should know soon enough when people start receiving their new ones.
Yes, we've all seen it at Fry's...but where else have you seen it for sale (in the U.S.) besides Fry's, Madcatz (Gameshark) & Capcom's website? And no, Craigslist & eBay doesn't count, haha! My point is, not that many stores & websites has it for sale. Not sure how many have been sold to this day but (again) how many people can justify walking into Fry's & spend $160 (plus local tax) on a joystick (hence them sitting on the shelves)? That's not a lot of money BUT that's a lot for a gaming peripheral.
Markman, can you respond to these questions regarding over-production (> #2000)?
