    Gotta fund them moblie games yo

  • SuperSailorV

    that security key is so cute.
    I wish theyd bring that mmo to the west, because then I could drop xiv.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Use my PS3 controllers to play games on my PC… but that controller… it’s sooo… tempting~

  • IS | 桂木

    I’m assuming DQX is a subscription based MMO?

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      its from Square…..yeah its going to have one

    • KiTA

      Yes, but it does have “Kid’s hour” where you can play some time during the day for free. The subscription is pretty reasonable, too.

  • LunarKnite

    I want that controller.

  • Sergio Briceño

    I can just picture the tutorial… “Press slime to interact”, “Press slime to cancel”, “Press slime to attack”, etc.

    • Slime 1, Sime 2, Slime 3, Slime 4, etc.

  • Pockystix

    it’s. . . it’s beautiful

  • Meh, nowhere near as awesome as the PS2 slime controller. Just get one of those and slap on a USB adapter.

    • AndyLC

      And soon after: “Special Senran Kagura controller to come out…”

    • Barrylocke89

      Looks kinda awkward though. The PC one matches form and style.

    • KuroNathan

      Looks incredibly uncomfortable and cool. So the perfect collector’s item

    • MrRobbyM

      I’d play with that no matter how uncomfortable it may or may not be. I want it.

    • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

      I always wanted this and a game shop near me had it, but I couldn’t afford it at the time. It always looked like it would be uncomfortable to hold. What’s your verdict?

      • Ty Austin

        Personally, I found it to be awkward to hold. I ended up keeping it on the pedestal and displaying it as if it were a figurine.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I already use my Dualshock, but damn if I wouldn’t buy that controller.

  • 하세요

    That is pretty, but I use my 360 controller. Already adjusted everything to it.

  • Andrew90

    Bring FF15 to PC

    • CirnoLakes

      I don’t think they can hear you. I’m not sure unrelated requests like that are allowed, either. Hence the downvotes. But it’s true, along with Dragon Quest X, I would love Final Fantasy XV to come to the PC.

  • fool

    Is it squishy?

  • Isaac Newton

    What a slimy controller!

  • Abysswalker90

    Looks like a regular third party Playstation controller to me.

    • KiTA

      That’s because it’s most likely made by Hori, manufacturer of the best third party Playstation (and everything else) hardware.

    your new ads that pop up on the bottom of the screen make your articles unreadable. There is no ‘x’ button to close them. I will no longer be visiting this site if this keeps up, they are far too intrusive and I can no longer see the content that I come here for. Just posting this comment was a chore of avoiding the ads.

  • CirnoLakes

    I need it!

    It might replace my XBOX 360 controller as my main way to play non-arcade games. People say that the PC isn’t a very Japanese platform, but as a follower of otaku culture, I can say that the PC is absolutely swimming in otaku items!

    Things like this are why I love my PC gaming. I love collecting things like this. If this was for a console, it wouldn’t have near the versatility, either!

    I like that colour of blue, too. Mark my words, I am getting one of these.
