I'll believe it's a hoax when there's evidence. So far, that seems to be the only link stating it's a hoax, and they give zero reason as to why.

I could absolutely understand it being a hoax, it certainly has that sort of feel. But, as it stands, there's no proof that it is a hoax, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. I sure hope it's not a hoax though, as it looks like it'd be pretty rad.

If it is a hoax though, who wants to take the opportunity to recreate it using existing parts? Maybe take a PSP, give it a custom case, steal a clicky stick off an NGPC or NGCD controller? I'd buy it! Is Bacteria still around? I smell a commission...

I already pointed out the fact that the shoulder buttons are messed up (look at the ordering), plus the lack of quality high res pictures. SNK/PlayMore hasn't commented on it either. Also if it's going to be around 50-60 bucks, why in the hell would they install an ambient light sensor in the bottom left corner.

i think that thing is gorgeous. if it were under $50 i'd snatch it up, but i'm not that big of an SNK fan to justify an $80 import. maybe once i am rich and respected.

How expensive are photoelectric cels these days anyway? I mean, Bokutai (GBA) had one of those.

The sensors in Boktai carts are not photoelectric cells :) It just roughly detects the amount of UV light shining on it, it doesn't produce electricity out of receiving that light.

That said, an ambient light sensor is not a photoelectric cell either!

Woah. Sure are a lot of types. Some of them don't sound too expensive. (And a solar-/photoelectric-cell could be used as a detector.)

I'm still holding out hope to get my hands on one of these, if for no other reason than to brag that I own new SNK hardware. :P

I'd love to brag about that too, but none of my friends know about SNK. :(
