Gaming hardware manufacturer Razer
has wrapped up the beta testing phase for its long-in-development Razer Atrox Arcade Stick
for the Xbox 360, and will begin accepting pre-orders next week.
We had a look at a prototype version of Razer's controller at TGS way back in 2011
, where the concept made a strong showing. Razer previously announced
that it would be working closely with the fighting game community throughout the Atrox's development, and the finished product will ship with tournament-grade Sanwa buttons and multiple interchangeable ball-top and bat-top sticks.
Razer has developed the Atrox with modding in mind; the hatch-like surface can be opened with a button press, allowing for easy maintenance and design customization. Once opened, the Atrox boasts a spacious interior with compartments for replacement parts, tools, and the fat wads of cash you'll pick up from underground Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Atrox pre-orders will open at Razer's website on May 21. The Atrox will retail for $200.
