    I posted a review of the Hit Box today, figured you guys might be interested in it. I threw in a 15+ min video showing how I use it to play Mortal Kombat 9. I think it's worth watching :p

    Excellent review. As a player with no arcade stick experience but plenty of keyboard experience, the HitBox is really intriguing. The price is too steep, but I'm considering making my own somehow.

    I'm on the waiting list for the 360 version. I absolutely can't wait to bust it out. Being a Kano player I'm looking forward to reliable Air Ball commands. My only concern in Block button placement. I've been trying to figure out a good button to map Block to, but nothing seems ideal so far. Right now I'm thinking, since my left thumb will control jump, that I could do the middle 4 buttons as my 1, 2, 3, and 4, have the lower left button (the one to the right of the jump button) be Block, and the upper left button be Tag so that it won't do anything if I hit it by accident. That way I can control block with my right thumb and still X-Ray by hitting the 3 bottom left buttons. Any suggestions?

    Oh, and very nice review, Delriach! You raped that dude with Sindel! I was hoping to see some Kano use since he has very unique direction inputs for his moves (F, D, B, F) but overall it was a very informative and concise review! Thanks!

    Depending on which character you are using, it may be worthwhile to map it to the JUMP button.

    I didn't think you could remap directional buttons. Even so, the placement of the Jump buttons seems pretty solid.

    You can't do it via the Options Menu, but those screws can be removed. ;)

    Ha, yeah. I suppose that's an option...

    That's actually the first layout I used. I couldn't get used to it. That's when it was recommended to me that I use my right thumb to control jump. And then that's when I started using the MK button layout.

    It really depends on what you're most comfortable with. You won't know until you try it for yourself and see what works best.

    Mesk, what board did your friend use for the PCB? I've got alll the panels ready and was going to use a PS2 controller, but don't know if the Left and Right will cancel each other out and form a neutral, or it will do double blocking....

    A guy I know on the PS3 side bought one of these. He seemed to be doing pretty well with it when I played him last, and he's had nothing but good things to say about it.

    It's really not for me, but I can definitely see the appeal.

    I played with it for a few hours yesterday and its amazing! I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick with this and leave my PDP stick behind. I'll probably just use my PDP stick for modding purposes and switch exclusively to the Hitbox. I know its been a few hours with it, but it really is great.

    Is there anything you guys want me to cover in my review? I have pictures of how it was shipped, pictures of it compared to a PDP Stick and a keyboard (for size purposes), I'm going to talk about the quality of the product versus the PDP, how I like the size, "Street Fighter" button set up instead of Mortal Kombat, of course talk about the pros and cons of the buttons versus the stick, and also some cool tricks I've picked up so far. Some examples are: 1) cross up jump in punches are hilariously easy, you just hold down the jump button and press the right then the left button and you can just keep doing it all day, 2) Raiden's teleport is so deadly because its SO easy to just repeatedly press down across the screen and then as soon as your opponent does something, boom, teleport.

    I'd like to know how do you like the Hitbox case size. Could be any bigger, smaller?Enough space to let hands rest? i'd appreciate that!

    I'd like to know does it perform as well and effective as a stick for games excluding MK that require more than just directional inputs. Is it overall good for EVERY type of FG?

    When is the review going to be up?

    Check out their youtube channel, I believe its "hitboxes". It was originally designed around SSF4. Most of the demo and tutorial vids on in SSF4. Pretty good shit

    Ugh I can't wait until I finally get mine. I ordered a PS/360 one as well and just got on the list on 8/10. I feel like I won't get it until christmas. Although, that would make for a pretty sweet christmas present to myself.

    Wait, can you start getting on the waiting list for a 360/PS3 Multi Console HitBox? I thought they weren't taking requests for that currently? Aren't they only doing PS3s as of now?

    Yeah you can, I was on the list but I asked them to take me off, they don't put MK on Xbox360s in tournament anyway
