Mortal Kombat Fight Stick too classy for ripping out spines

, | Games

I’m already set up with a couple of fancy Mad Katz Fightsticks, but they’re not nearly as classy looking as the upcoming Mortal Kombat Fight Stick. I understand that Capcom’s Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom branding would be all cartoony and brightly colored, but what’s with the Mortal Kombat branding being so tasteful and refined? That thing looks like something Captain Nemo would use to drive the Nautilus.

The Mortal Kombat Fight Stick has been designed to reflect the look and feel of the classic Mortal Kombat arcade cabinet and its ergonomic button layout has been updated with additional design and technological touches to create the ideal joystick for serious console players. The underside of the Mortal Kombat Fight Stick is lined with velvet-wrapped memory foam for the comfort of players who hold the stick on their lap, while rubberized feet at the bottom corners will prevent the stick from sliding when placed on a table or similar surface. The inner workings of the Mortal Kombat Fight Stick are composed of high quality arcade parts from Suzo Happ and are easily accessed without the need of any tools. Inside the joystick base, all parts and wires are protected by a unique plastic shield emblazoned with the Mortal Kombat logo, and there is room to store cables and a copy of the game. You put your weed in there.

Okay, I added that last bit, but come on. I mean, seriously, what were they thinking?
