Microsoft has since fixed the Windows 10 upgrade window.

It now says "If you DO NOT not want to not upgrade, click the Upgrade button."

It would appear that the link is borked and Saitek's site is jacked.

Their quality control team must also do their website

I wonder if they're going to up their build quality? I have a Microsoft Sidewinder that's got to be 17 years old and it still works perfectly. I've had two Seitek sticks in the last 3 years and the first one broke within 5 months, the replacement lasted maybe 4 months, and the X-55 never did quite work right.

I switched to the amazing $40 Thrustmaster HOTAS and have been happy ever since.

There's some hope though, because it looks like they redesigned the sensors:
"Enhanced Stick Accuracy

The X-56 Rhino's control surfaces are incredibly accurate, courtesy of a 16-bit aileron and elevator axis, each employing hall-effect sensors. Developed from the ground up, Saitek's 16-bit axis solution enables extremely precise flight."

I love the HOTAS X. There's a huge gap in the hotas market for a $100 solution. It's either $40 or $150 and up. Thrustmaster would make a killing if they did a slight redesign and upped the specs on that thing and sold it for a hundo. All they would have to say is, "just like the hotas-x, but more metal and an LED!" winner.

I'd settle for more buttons

The problem is, I already finished Start Wars. Now I have to wait for ReStart Wars to replay it.

Are you sure? When I played it, it seemed like it even had some of the same missions as CoH.

Isn't Champions Online pretty much the same game with a better engine?

There will probably never be a Led Zeppelin rock band because Jimmy Page has stated he wants people to play real instruments instead of toys. Therefore, he will not hand over their master tapes.

ST II's battle scenes were well paced, showing how enormous these ships are. It was like watching a 50's submarine thriller.

The new movie had the Enterprise flying around like a fighter plane, and everything was so fast and sloppy you get lost.

Big difference.

Actually, with a storyline so rich and detailed, they could probably make a WoW like experience out of it. Might work.

This is why I hate MMO versions of racing games. There will always be that doofus that spends $1000 on a hi tech steering wheel setup that gives him 2000% more control than everyone else. You'll never beat those people, so why even try?

LOL- This guy sounds like the marketing guy from 3DFX-

"Our cards dither 16 bit color, so it's more like 24 bit color...nobody is going to do 32 bit color anyway."
