Steel Battalion- Green Or Blue Controller?

Whatever you get, make sure you can play it on live. I played the single player game, but it's ridiculously time consuming because the levels are misjudged (read: "No matter how good you are, you'll need to attempt this 10 times just to work out what the cock is going on!"). I love the idea of playing it on XBoxLive though.

Where are you buying it for £200? Is that the current price on Ebay?

I was thinking that, it's a filthy price. Brand spankingly good condition second hand copies are going for £100-130, there's just no point in paying those silly prices tbh.

And also - Seanr, I didn't realise that about the green lights, but that's a bit pathetic no? The leds in the buttons are more a gimmick than anything useful, even when the communicator buttons flash I don't realise as i'm constantly getting feedback of what's happening from on the screen.

The blue button version comes with Line of Contact as well as the original game, the green one will only have Steel Battalion unless the seller adds LoC to the auction. £130 is definately the sort of price you should be looking at, including postage by special delivery. Check the trading folder there ought to be some there.

When I was playing this on live a lot the consensus was that the original green buttoned one is more durable. I have used mine loads and had no problems.

My first original one broke - the gear shift didn't shift properly between 2nd and 3rd and made a horrible clicking noise when it was forced.

is there any way to override the stupid, you die, restart thing??

Must be a beard. :P

SB is almost as famous for it's killing you off completely as it's wacky controller. The way to not have to restart is to use the eject button... BUT as you have to buy a new VT everytime you eject, it's possible to run out of money, and then it's game over as well.

I once got clobbered in this in LoC because we had massive lag, and although I was pressing eject for everything I was worth, my pilot was wiped out.

the green one is better and anyone who says different is a MIDDLECORE CASUAL GAMER FAG!!!!!!!1111

and it's Tekki not steel battalion you fool. don't you care about games at alll??/

:P

But he's right. The newer controller with blue buttons is better (if you are buying PAL). If you are buying Japanese and US NTSC then both are identical in terms of build quality.
