Limited edition Street Fighter stick available at Comic Con
For those who decided to brave the sticky, smelly masses and attend Comic Con, this is a week of celebration. For those who didn’t, however, it’s a week of regret, with heaping helpings of that uncomfortable sinking feeling supplied by your good friends on the Internet. Case in point: the above red hot Street Fighter IV arcade pad.
The pad’s a Comic Con-exclusive, and only 500 will be available — 250 for the Xbox 360 and 250 for the PS3. It’s selling for the steep price of $179.99. But then, Comic Con’s all about wanton spending and nerdy excess, so we don’t think Capcom will have too much of a problem getting these things off their hands.
