A few months ago, we showed you the Star Wars: Battlepod game that gives you the ability to become immersed in some of the greatest battles seen on the big screen. You don’t have to worry about heading to a big arcade to play the game, as Bandai has announced a home version is coming our way soon!

Made upon order for personal home use, the special Premium Edition of Star Wars: Battle Pod will be equipped with genuine leather seats that are synchronized to move/react to the action of the game and is available in two different glamorous designs inspired by the images of the Rebel Alliance and Darth Vader. This arcade masterpiece includes the owners name and a product serial number engraved plate along with: a specially bound owner’s manual and exclusive carpeting. Owners will also have their name added to the game ending credits.

Now, I’m really trying to get a full sized Gauntlet or Gauntlet II game into the Major Spoilers HQ (my birthday is coming up, Dear Reader), but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get a Star Wars: Battlepod home edition as it has a MSRP of $35,000. If you want your name added to the end credits, the system will set you back $100,000.

Ouch.

While this is really cool news, this ends up being a game for those with a ton of extra cash. Also, it makes that $1,500 for Gauntlet II seem very reasonable.

    If I start saving now, I should be able to afford one of these by 2179, just in time for my 200th birthday.

    Reminds me of the old Xwing vector graphic arcade game.
