I hope they don't become scarce and scalpers capitalize on it. If they're good quality, I'm definitely gonna get the Clear blur Genesis controller.

What about the Dreamcast? I'm sure that they were doing that also.
They are. From the sounds of it, it sounds like that is coming at a later date. I know I can't wait to get my hands on the Dreamcast one. I just hope the feel is close to the same.

Here's a video of these controllers from Gamescom:

I could go for a nice USB Saturn controller. It would be a nice, comfy gamepad option for fighting games I reckon. =)
