Steel Battalion is a video game created by Capcom for the Xbox console where the player controls a VT (Vertical Tank). This is similar to the idea of a Mech in games such as Mech Assault . To control the tank and play the game you are required to use a large controller made specially for Steel Battalion and its sequel .
The controller has two control sticks and around 40 buttons. The game, with the controller included, cost around £130 or $200. Since the controller is very large, only limited quantities were made available. These quickly sold out, making the game a collector's piece. It has since been re-released in the States, for the retail price of $120 in limited quantities.
