Woah! Yes please!

That rotate mech is awesome!!!

Interestingly it has an sd card slot on the side.... (ah! The extra controller with the track ball comes with track ball games on an sd card)
God I hope this Xenepp made Mame board is good.

Looks really promising. Hoping the full 4:3 mock up is a sign of what the screen will actually look like.

It'd also be cool if that separate trackball panel is compatible with other stuff. :awe:

The trackball panel is a full sized controller. I thought it would be the same size as the mini cab and you could swap them in place of the joystick. Would be a marble sized track ball if that was the case. :D

Very cool like.

Taito just waited for the feedback on the Astro mini and then did all things right. They even upped the size a bit.

It's very much still catered for a Japanese audience with compact living though. Shelf display in the day, gaming machine hooked up to a TV during the night.

Is there a list of the 10 trackball/spinner games somewhere? I'm intrigued even though I play 90% fighting games, 9% swords and sorcery, and 1% anything else.

Presumably there’ll be some sweet vert shooters on there to take advantage of the rotated screen.

Tatsujin?
RayForce?
Gun Frontier...

The Sd card slot hopefully means it’s ripe for getting other non official games on there.

I wish Sega had put as much thought into theirs. This thing is awesome.

Both control panels are still really small compared to 'regular' joystick controllers. They're 240mm x 100mm, which makes the trackball not much larger than a ping pong ball.

Just have to hope the LCD has a decent resolution, and any scaling isn't bilinear...
