  3. Blind Ghost says:

    is the PS3 one legit is it good, cause if it is ill pick it up.

  4. Inserity says:

    Very nice! I think this is what I’ve been waiting for. The HRAP-V looks awesome. Love how they’re mimicking the official cabs.

    Mark, any pre-order info? I wonder what the prices will be like.

  5. MarkMan says:

    I’m expecting the HRAP V to be similarly priced to the HRAP3 SA stick. So think $130+ retail…

  6. SolRahlX says:

    Someone said that the RAP V will be ready in the winter.

  7. SolRahlX says:

    Also the V3 and VX are retailed at 6000yen and 7000yen… so about 70 or 80 bucks.

    • Inserity says:

      Yeah, that’s ’cause they’re part the Fighting Stick series. Like the Fighting Stick 3 everyone said was pretty bad. Hopefully these will be better but they’re not like the HRAP series.

      $130ish sounds reasonable for a good HRAP.

  8. MarkMan says:

    Supposedly the VX and V3 sticks (according to the brochure) will have easily changeable stick area (no mention on the buttons).

    We’ll see! They come out in a few weeks!

  9. MYK says:

    Is the HRAP 5 a dual modded stick?

  10. L_Z_N says:

    they all look nice…especially the HRAP V

  11. Call2Arms says:

    I can haz Sanwa parts in HRAP V?

  12. […] on these new HORI “V” sticks @ TGS’09…but you can read more @ SDTEKKEN or darthJones’ post on […]

  13. Colin says:

    available 2 buy on play-asia, when it first comes out?

  14. dara says:

    DAMMMMMNNN that HRAPV is hot

    • MarkMan says:

      Hey dara, my bad I keep missing you on AIM. I’m a real ass for not getting back to you/sending out stuff yet. I’ve been lazy/busy with work. I’ll hit you up this weekend.

  15. coilover2005 says:

    Wow the HRAP box kinda looks “Star Wars-ish”


  16. CeaserDeebo says:

    Any idea how much this will cost ?

  17. SolRahlX says:

    I gotta have that HRAP V… that thing is sexy. Gotta get one for PS3… hopefully they will release it before Final Round XIII

  18. Blind Ghost says:

    They got the Customazations Screens at Kotaku for T6.

    Its fucking Insane man !!!!

    the number of body parts that are customizable are fucking staggering.

  19. Blind Ghost says:

    ………helooooo!!!!………….anyone Heeeere !?!?!?!?!?!

  20. Blind Ghost says:

    Damn… I guess not.

  21. SuperNova says:

    I’m here! Nice find Ghost!! Can’t wait to play scenario campaign online (among other things). And judging by your name I would say Ur a Raven player right? Whut other characters do you use??

  22. Blind Ghost says:

    hahaaa !! right on my man. you knwo your shit.

    my main is raven, second is dragunov, i know Jin and Kazuya backwards and forwards, but i cant last a second wiht them online.

    with raven i was able to get to destroyer just playing raven.

  23. Blind Ghost says:

    this one though im gonna go all out, im gonna pick up 6 characters. ill see what i can do.

    • SuperNova says:

      I know for a fact that err-body and their grandma is gonna use Lars, Bob, & Alisa online so I gotta train real hard to combat them. Personally I’m more interested in Leo & Miguel. Zafina on the other hand looks way to weird for me to pick up so I mite pass on her.

      • Blind Ghost says:

        ya theres gonna be a shit load of noobs using Bosconovitch Bitch and Lars and Lili.

        But thats cool, noobs wont last a second agaisnt me, i make quick work of them.

        zafina and Leo im gonna defiently try out, and Baek for sure.

        Jin im probably gonna main, cause in this one hes Boss effective. not just regular effective.

  25. SuperNova says:

    Nice!! I honestly tried pickin’ up Raven but we just don’t gel man. And its a shame cuz I like Ninjas :(
    Yeah my top 3 are (in order) Law, Paul, & Armor King but I’m decent with Beak, Feng Wei, Kazuya, and Bruce.

    • Blind Ghost says:

      everybodys got their groove man. thats what so great about tekken variety and you have a chance top win with everybody , its all ” FAIR PLAY” im looking at yooouuu!!!! SFIV !!!

  26. SuperNova says:

    BTW wut ever happened to the Penny Arcade comic book???

    • Blind Ghost says:

      honetly could give 2 shits, tekken is almost out, they just arnt putting everythign they got into it. like they did wiht the WOW comics.
      that thing came out fast. but i guess tekken isnt that important to them.


    • MarkMan says:

      Expect more pages/info on the Penny-Arcade comic next week.

  27. MarkMan says:

    Also have you guys seen the TEKKEN “This is your fight.” Hype video?

  28. MarkMan says:

    Also look at how awesome/hype Namco Bandai’s booth area was at Tokyo Game Show!

  29. learn german says:

    So sexy! Although i think they should have put the start buttons on the front like the TE

  30. I every time spent my half an hour to read this blog’s articles or reviews all
    the time along with a mug of coffee.
