NCS Preorder Synopsis
Update: December 01, 2009

©NCSX» Hori released the X360 Real Arcade Twinsticks yesterday and our Japanese suppliers shipped them last night but they didn't consult us on the shipping charges before sending them out. We were estimating each Twinstick to weigh roughly 10-15 lbs but according to the UPS Worldwide Express waybill from last night, each stick weighs a little over 27lbs. Ouch.

   Hori didn't provide weight details back in July when preorders opened up and NCS didn't expect them to be that heavy when pricing out the sticks a few months ago. Our import shipping costs have nearly doubled due to the heavier weight. Since there's no other way to say it, we're just going to blurt it out: We'll have to charge everyone an extra $28.63 to cover half of those additional shipping costs and the UPS fuel surcharge. We'll cover the other half of the charge. Sorry about that. We'll send out emails today to request acknowledgement and affirmation of the additional charge but we'll begin preparing orders today for quick and efficient shipping tomorrow.

NCS Preorder Synopsis
Update October 22, 2009

«©NCSX» Hori updated customers who ordered the Xbox Real Arcade Twinstick EX on Monday with a confirmed ship date of November 29. This is one month later than we had originally expected but we're appreciative of the production and we'll get ready for the arrival of the sticks.

   NCS received an unexpectedly large amount of preorders for the sticks and we'll be sending shipment reminders to customers in mid November. Please note that the Twinsticks are currently pre-sold out but if we receive any additional inventory from parallel vendors in Japan, we'll post an update on our shop's product description for the sticks.

Update: July 23, 2009
A $100 non-refundable deposit will be billed to your credit card when you submit your preorder.
NCS Preorder Synopsis
Update: June 16, 2009
©NCSX» The Xbox 360 version of Virtual On Oratorio Tangram was unveiled for the Xbox Live Arcade earlier this year (April 29) and 'twas a beauty of a release. The revision is ver5.66 which is the final coin-op version of VOOT which features three additional Virtuaroids such as the Stein-Vok and the Apharmd C. We don't mind playing the game with a joypad since it works well but we prefer the twin stick for the tactile feel of operating a Virtuaroid the way it was meant to be manipulated. NCS won't be hacking open our official Saturn or DC Twin Sticks anytime soon to mod them for Xbox 360 compatibility but our wishes for an official Twin Stick solution have been answered, courtesy of Hori. We got dibs on three units.

   Preorders for the Hori Twinstick EX are welcome to ship on or around November 30, 2009 at JPY30000 or US$398.90 from NCS. The controller features two Sanwa JLJ-PL2-8V sticks which are bolted onto a standard Real Arcade Pro case. Sadly, we'll have to pay retail price for the controllers along with tax and costly air express carriage charges from Japan to the United States. Please note the production of the Twinstick is contingent on Hori receiving enough reservations to justify the manufacturing run.
