Japan's Obesity Epidemic: Hori Real Arcade Pro Premium VLX

Don't place the Hori Real Arcade Pro Premium VLX on your lap. You may never walk again.

Available in Japan this March for the equivalent of $330, the Hori Real Arcade Pro Premium VLX is the biggest fightstick yet (and probably ever) for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Modeled after the actual Taito Street Fighter IV arcade cabinet, the controller features Sanwa buttons along with a flip up panel that allows you to rewire/configure the device as you see fit.

And let me be the first to say, if you have this ridiculous joystick at home, nobody, and I mean nobody, better be defeating you at Street Fighter. Like, if Yoshiki Okamoto shows up at your house, he loses. All night. [Play Asia via Joystiq]
