360 Arcade Stick in the Works?

Sounds good to me. There have been a lot of complaints about the 360's D-Pad, especially in Live Arcade games like Street Fighter and Pac-Man. This looks like it may be the answer.

It is a bit pricey though: $69.99. At that price, I'd rather just stick to a regular controller. Paying $70 for an arcade stick is kind of crazy.

EDIT: The arcade stick will actually be $49, and will include extras as well: http://www.joystiq.com/2006/08/18/xbox-live-arcade-stick-priced-at-50-includes-games/ (Thanks ilikesanta)

That works!

Ooh, and it comes bundles with other goodies too!

This seems like it may be a fair buy.

Damn, I might have to buy two, since whenever friends come over we play XBLA games almost exclusively. Yeah, all of my friends are Luddites when it comes to modern gaming... :'(

Well, now I can't seem to find it anywhere.  But there was the DoA 4 Hori arcade stick.
