NCS Product Synopsis
Real Arcade Pro.EX RS-1
«©NCSX» Reservations are welcome for Hori's tentative production of the Real Arcade Pro.EX RS-1 which is being manufactured for the Xbox 360. The RS-1 pays homage to Radiant Silvergun
which is being released on Xbox Live Arcade sometime this year. The joystick is being described as a "tentative production" because Hori won't proceed with the manufacturing if they don't receive sufficient preorders to justify to production. That said, it's unclear why Hori limited the preorder time frame from December 17 to January 04. Why not extend the frame to a whole month to gather more preorders?

   The RS-1 uses Seimetsu parts and Hori colored four buttons on the joystick with green, red, blue, and yellow colors but the overall joystick button layout is the same layout that Hori's been using since the HRAP2. Radiant Silvergun
uses three buttons for Vulcan Fire, Homing Shot, and Spread Shot. For comparative referene, the original HRAP(1) also featured eight buttons but the shape of the button layout is slightly different. Compare the photos of the HRAP-2 (Sanwa) and the RS-1 model below for their matching button layouts.

   Preorders are welcome to ship sometime this year. The production hasn't been finalized yet so the date is still up in the air. Pricing is set at US$289 which reflects special arrangements to import the joysticks to North America.
