For those who love to collect licensed arcade sticks and are willing to import, Hori has a set of new BlazBlue Continuum Shift EXTEND Real Arcade Pro.V series sticks up for pre-order on Play-Asia.
Both the PS3 (HRAP.V3-SA) and XBox 360 (HRAP.VX-SA) versions will be available on December 17, 2011 -the same day the game launches. Both feature a blue case (exclusive to BlazBlue HRAPs), BlazBlue CS Extend specific art and, seeing as these are “-SA” badged sticks, Sanwa parts all around (stick and buttons).
The PS3 version is priced at $159.90, the XBox 360 version however goes for more at $179.90. Combine this with international shipping (for folks outside Hong Kong) and these sticks clearly are for serious BlazBlue fans and collectors only.
