Hori's new monster arcade stick is absolutely enormous

Fighting video games have always had their roots in the arcades. That's where the games are released first, and arcade sticks are much better for controlling them than the game pads that come with consoles. If you're looking to bring the arcade experience home without buying a full cabinet, this Hori Real Arcade Pro Premium VLX arcade stick should do just that.

This monstrous controller is basically like taking the entire control panel from an arcade box and plopping it on your lap. Sure, it's big, heavy and impractical, but isn't that part of its charm? It'll set you back about $330.
