They should include an adapter to use the original controller, so we have the option to use the less unintuitive and cumbersome of the two control styles.

I'm sure those quick-time events will be a blast.

Might be the killer app to finally get me to purchase the Kinect. Would love an adapter for the mega controller, that would be nice.

Did the mega controller have any rule use besides that game?

I'm interested, nonetheless.

It was used for Steel Battalion and Steel Battalion Line of Contact officially. There was to be a Robotech game but it was 86ed. If you have a Xbox to USB adapter there are ini files for lots of games to use it. That and Video DJs use it as a cheap effects setup.

Looks ok, but it's no replacement for the big controller. Makes me sad.
