I was looking on Amazon today and was considering pre ordering this game. I wanted to get the flight stick bundle, but I noticed that the bundle is $150!

Is that really what it is going to be? They estimated the flight stick to be $50!

Guitar Hero 3 w/ guitar bundle is $100, and they are asking $90 for a joystick.

WHY?!?

It also comes with a limited edition faceplate too, at least here in Canada, for $139.99. If you remember, when the Ace Combat: The Unsung War limited edition flight stick bundle came out, it cost $169. What I'm kinda curious about is, is that the PS2 flight stick is exactly the same as the 360 one, so is there a chance the PS2 one would work with the 360, since the PS2 version is USB (I know, the PS2 one obviously doesn't have the 360 guide button).

Im sure someone will try it when it comes out. It will be all over the net in less than 25 hours if that works or not.

They are saying that the stick will be released separately for 59.99 and buying it separate is still cheaper than the bundle. I do not care much about the faceplate, so I will probably end up buying the stick later on.

So does anyone have any reviews for the flight controller?
