Saturn styling... nice. We may have a winner here.

I would assume the normal import shops would have it... I'd hope so anyway.

Although there is always the PS2/USB adapter that you can get for cheaper, buy hey... it's not by Sega

How is that adaptor? Probably worth looking into for playing PSO online... as long as you can use the sticks. This keyboard shit just ain't cutting it.

If I'm not mistaken, Gens has a configurable controller, so I would assume that as long as it works with Windows, you should have no problem.

PC Magic Box is a USB adaptor for SS, PS and DC controllers. It works with any Windows emulator. Avoid the white (old) version if you want to use the DC Arcade Stick.

I thought it was a bit cheaper than that... I think Sega Direct is offering it for 2626 or something... they're also giving a way gift certificates or something for the first 2000 pre-orders. Doesn't help those living abroad though.

Since you can get the Magic Box for about $20.00 it's kind of pointless for people outside of Japan.

PS2 version announced: http://www.4gamer.net/news.php?url=/new ... etail.html . Seems that the USB version was a big hit.

Yeah, and shown at the TGS today. Was going to post about that. Looks pretty cool... didn't want to wait in line to try it out though. The guy at the extremely tiny booth showing the hardware was pretty impressed that I cared so much about the Blast City layout. :)
