Razer Arcade Stick Prototype

Ok, this isn't about computers per se, but I have no doubt this will be modded over to work on computers. Razer opened a product-testing beta at the Tokyo Game Show to test and improve an Xbox 360 arcade stick. Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, the president of Razer USA, said"

"Razer is for gamers, by gamers. We’ve been taking feedback from our professional players on products for years and now we want to open it up to the community. That’s why we want every arcade enthusiast and modder’s input in the development of this special arcade stick. In this way, it’s not just our arcade stick; it’s the community’s arcade stick. Together, we will create a weapon that delivers the best fighting performance for every gamer and allows modding to the individual’s exact specifications. We’re not just asking people for input on the paint job, we’re after serious hardware feedback."

If you think you should be in the beta, you can apply for it and tell Razer why you should be chosen here. You can read more about the beta and the beta process from the press release.
