Yeah way too expensive to use for a few games, and lack of multi-key binding makes it even worse. I'd say $60 at most for something like this but I wouldn't bother unless they are going to add the ability to bind 2 keys. It's a cool product just not worth paying that price for....heck you can get an awesome mouse or keyboard for that price.

I agree with all of you - way too expensive. Stinky Corp. had better adjust accordingly to their customers expected price range or else be ready to file for bankruptcy...

I just checked their website today and the price is still for a whopping $119.99. No thanks!

This is not a new concept but a fresh one. This would also come in handy at work when you have your hands full and need to use the keyboard. I think they made something like it using a sewing machine peddle. Could be very usefull if you configured inside the options menu of the game an alternate un-used single key for commands that would require more than one to use it for the stinky key. LOL

That price...

This is 30 dollars of material at worst with a mass production.

I'd buy one if it was 40 dollars, not anything more than 45, 120 is crazy!

Materials aren't the only cost of production.

That's true, but for a product like this, not that much more...

Really? How many products have you R&D's, patented and designed? How much did that cost you?

Make one yourself for huge savings then if you see a use for this but not at that price.

Oh my, look at that price.

Interesting concept but the price is a bit high and the utility is questionable beyond a few games But the name is absolutely dumb dumb dumb dumb.

I could see how it'd be useful for sprinting, crouching, and maybe dodging. There are a lot of things I'd rather spend my money on, though.

Is that the actual bottom of the product? You didn't have to remove a plastic panel to get that shot?

If so this product can't even claim build quality, certainly not $120 MSRP worth of stuff. We have keyboards and console controllers that aren't even 1/2 this price and have dozens more moving parts. Those don't even look like very robust switches, it's not as if they are off a 1990 video game cabinet, they look like the membrane sensors under my keyboard.

$40, maybe people would try it. $120 Laugh, choke, the question in your head pops up - are they serious? The concept intrigues me, but the price makes me want to permanently dislike this company.

There are single foot switches for $10 online, and Thanko used to sell one in the US that could be found for $70 or less and had 3 boss-style guitar-pedal switches.

Should have given it a 6 out of 10 due to price alone.

The first image is of the Stinky Footpad's internals, which are located beneath its brushed aluminum foot plate.

That makes sense, thanks for the explanation. So we're still looking at a top-down view of the product, but without the top on ...

To be more fair to the company AND the hardware you should swap the images all-around. There are 3 images - two of them are the same - and the front page web-feed is probably picking up the first image "above the fold" (or the read-more line). Your home page shows what is not a great representation of the item.

It's still not worth $120, but at least give them a better chance at selling when they are down to under 1/2 that price.

That is a ridiculous price for a few switches and some plastic with a wee bit of metal.
