Ah, useful. I thought Amazon took the cash up-front for videogame pre-orders these days.

Wait... that means I could order it and it's future-me's problem...

Suck on that Future me!

I note that the rotation shown is clockwise, hope it rotates anti-clockwise too.

I would be surprised if it rotates both ways.

I'm not sure why it would matter, flipping can obviously be handled in software.

Have any details been released about the stick? I apparently does both 4-way and 8-way.

I wish this thing was around 20 years ago when I was substitute teaching :lol:

Painfully tempting, but I'm just recently getting use out of my cabs again after a bit of a arcade hiatus.

It really looks like they'll get all the details right... looking forward to playing Galaga and DKJunior on that thing!

The triangle of buttons looks a bit ****.

It’s still by far the best looking of all the minis to date IMO

Also, is that on a train?

The graphic next to the joystick is a bit suggestive.
