HORI RAP4 Premium VLX KURO Controller PS4/PS3 with Touchpad

Who would have thought that Hori would consider making another version of the Premium VLX?  Let's just say that there are so many reasons why this shouldn't have happened, but so many reasons why it just had to happen. 

We're proud to announce that this project was an original collaboration between Arcadeshock and Hori USA.  For this reason, this product is exclusive to us and Hori for sales outside of Japan. 

If you own the first 2 VLX's, the Red (Original) and the Diamond (Blue), then you don't need any introduction to the build quality of this stick that really set many standards for other sticks to follow and to this day, this is still considered the flagship of commercially produced controllers. 

The VLX Trilogy is finally complete and for those who missed out on the first two VLX Productions, here is your chance to grab a Premium VLX.  Thus far, both the Original Red and Diamond VLX versions have almost doubled in price from it's original MSRP.  Once this stick sells out, there's no doubt the VLX Kuro will follow the same pattern, given the upgrades that it has received. 

The VLX Kuro is simply a beast.  There is no fight stick on the market like it.  It literally was ripped out of a Taito VLX Cabinet and placed on your lap.  Even though it's rated at 12.13 lbs, it feels much heavier and more solid than that.  If you have never felt one of these sticks, once you pick it up, you know it's at another level.  Sorry to say, but once you own this, expect stick envy from your fellow mates. 

A lot of hard work was put into making this happen, so it's here now and don't let another chance at owning the Premium VLX pass you by.  The ultimate stick is here and the price with FREE SHIPPING (only within the Continental United States - shipped via FEDEX Ground Only - No P.O. Box deliveries) is simply unbeatable.

VLX Fight Stick Bag:  Check out our partner SPLITFRAME.net for the ultimate fight stick bag, specifically made for Hori's Premium VLX sticks.  Everyone has been requesting a true bag for this stick and SPLITFRAME LLC has designed the baddest stick bag on the market...period.  We have put our hands on this bag and tested it with the VLX and it fits like a glove as well as protects it with a ridiculous amount of padding.  We helped design this bag with SPLITFRAME, but they are the apparel gear specialist so they definitely know what they're doing.  

Go order the stick bag now because these will sell out.  http://tiny.cc/FSTXL
