How cool is this, a guy managed to build a cabinet with the game running on it. Just look for yourselves.

Wow! - Fair play to the guy not just for making an awesome cabinet, but for customising the game itself to adapt it for arcade-style gaming.

That is pretty cool. You really would get get immersion into the game with such a control system.

Building a similar cabinet with controls tailored for other games would also be cool. Imagine one for the X games, or Eve. Maybe even for something completely different such as a Mech game for example. What was the Mech game that really cool custom controller was released for, on I think the Dreamcast. :unsure:

What was the Mech game that really cool custom controller was released for, on I think the Dreamcast.That was for the XBox. With the huge controller which costs a lot of money. Oz has one, he's a mech freak. The game was Steel Battalion.

That's the one! :thumbs:

I thought Dreamcast because originally that game was announced for the Dreamcast, but it's development was later switched to the Xbox.

Is the controller as good as they said? Cost a fair bit at 130 too!

I understand the controller and game are now quite rare as only about 2000 of those controllers were ever made.

As far as I know, Oz really likes the controller and says the game is pure fun and worth a buy, have to visit him one time to give it a try.

The lads is obviously a nutter.
But that's alright if you are an inventer.
You just get called eccentric.

P.S Do you think he will make a Frontier one for me?
