Tekken 6 Bundle Includes Specially Designed Joystick

As if the onslaught of potential "AAA" games won't put a big enough dent in your wallet.

Fighting purists will always say such games are best played with the old-fashioned joystick control scheme, which is why the truly hardcore will have the option of purchasing what you see here: a Tekken 6 bundle that includes the specially branded joystick with those big ol' arcade-style buttons. They'll toss in a pretty art book as well, but the entire bundle will cost $149.99, so prepare your bank account for bad news. However, if this doesn't bother you and you simply want the chance to play Tekken 6 the way fighters "were meant to be played," you can pre-order now at places like GameStop, GameCrazy, Best Buy, and Amazon.com. If you opt for GameStop, you will receive the extra bonus of a samurai pack that "adds more customization options for all 40 characters." This pack also gives you the collectible calendar, featuring all the hottest Tekken babes...which is, of course, the best part of the entire bundle, right? I mean, we all need to have a schedule and we all need a calendar, so... Tekken 6 is bound to be one of the biggest releases of 2009, so in this particular case, pre-ordering may not be a bad idea.

We'll be interested to see how it fares against other major releases this fall, though, because even though it'll be huge, there are lots of "huge" titles coming our way.

Tell this to the countless number of pro players who prefer stick over pad for more precise movements

This game is not a big deal so it really doesn't matter.In fact they should have made PC,wii and PS2 versions as well.

I dunno, I've always seen Tekken as a playstation tradition, but that might be becuase it was the first game i got with my PS1 years ago. It really just doesnt look right, The 360 buttons appearing on the game or just a person holding a 360 controller while playing it. they can have Dead or Alive, but not Tekken.

Hey, I found a review of Tekken 6. Judging by it, it's going to be SWEET.

Not so much a review as a rant from a whiney twat with poor linguistic skills and too much sand in his vagina.

Seriously, skip it.

Pass, I never know what to do with those joysticks. Yes of course I grew up playing arcade fighters with the joystick but u were standing up and the sticks were at the perfect level. Putting those things in my lap at home just isn't the same, they move around and stuff. Sit on the floor and stick it in front of me? Then I have to hunch over. Too awkward.

I'm gonna buy Tekken 6, even though I think it's starting to get old. The joystick I'm definitely gonna pass on. I got over not being able to use a joystick a long time ago.

For $150 that's probably a pretty cheap joystick. I spent that much a piece on my SF4 joysticks, but their the real ones from the arcade.
