Steel Battalion Controller (2002)

First launched for the unique Xbox, Steel Battalion was, on the floor, a gritty mech pilot simulator. What units it other than different video games of that kind is that you simply had to make use of a really particular controller made particularly for the sport so as to correctly play it. By controller, I imply an enormous dashboard with two joysticks, 35 buttons, and three pedals. Capcom merely didn’t have to go this tough, however by God, they went nuts with this one. They actually wished to be as immersive as potential.

For some avid gamers, enjoying this recreation is a white whale. Not solely is it exhausting to get your fingers on this large, badass-looking gimmick gadget, but it surely additionally means getting your fingers on an authentic Xbox. There isn’t any backward functionality with the Xbox 360.
