    Default Dragon Quest slime controller...

    Im not sure how many people are excited for this, but I know Dragon Warrior fans will be pleased!

    The Dragon Quest slime controller is coming to America! These things were really popular last year in Japan and soon fans that didnt get the chance to pick up the controller last year will get the chance!

    Everything Dragon Quest is popular in Japan, though. I'm a fan of the series, and I guess it's a cool. If I had too much money, I might buy it just to display it.

    Heh, that's awesome! I hope it'll drop in price at some point though...It's really hard to justify $40 on a controller, no matter how cool it is...

    Sweet, though there's something not cool about the location of the controls......

    Do you think the Slime's crap looks the same as the Slime's body? :P

    Hehe, anyway, pretty surprising that it's coming to the US, but it's cool that a wider audience can get it. What I'm wondering about is, are they really going to call the game Dragon QUEST VIII in the US? Didn't someone already copyright the Dragon Quest name in the US, so Enix had to go with Dragon Warrior (just like with Biohazard/Resident Evil)? Did the life of the copyright run out or what?

    Apparently, Hasbro (who owns Wizards of the Coast, who owns TSR) let the Dragon Quest name lapse, so Square Enix snatched it up.

    I don't know...I worked at EB for a LONG time and they always make up release dates to try and capitalize on pre-orders.

    I really would love to have that controller with American packaging though. Mark my words...there will only be a handful made if it's released here and it WILL be a valuable collectors item in the future.

    I really wish it was a wireless controller with that price tag on it. :/

    It'd be nice for this to end up like the SF Anniversary controllers that I can now pick up for $10 a piece, but I highly doubt it.

    I'll probably buy at release.

    Woohoo!

    If you are suggesting the PS2 doesn't have a controller with a good D-Pad, I suggest you give a Mad Catz controller a whirl. They seem to do D-Pad to my liking everytime

    The slime controller was 3,129 yen in Japan, which is a little less than $30. Lik-sang imports it for 49.95 though (but it's out of stock), and I can't find another retailer.

    Ebay says:

    A lot more. Usually goes for around $100. So, basically, it's time to pre-order one of these, kids. If you love DQ and love slimes, you know you'll want one down the road.

    Damn. It looks like Sony stole Nintendo's secret plan for the Revolution...
