Someone is trying to sell a copy of Thrust+ Combat pack for $500(!) at eBay.

 

Before anyone is paying that hefty price, please contact me. There are a few unsold copies left. And much cheaper!

 

More details:

  • Six packs were left (we found the other two)
  • Shipping: 37€ (=$41) to the USA/Canada, 17€ to Europe, 7€ inside Germany (this will be added to the price offered)
  • They are signed and numbered 
  • Condition: absolutely new
  • Original price in 2002: $75
  • Only 50 copies exist
  • 12 people have contacted me so far
  • First come, first serve (assuming the offered price is fair)
  • Five packs are sold already, only one left

They still run quite cheap over here.

But shipping is hefty.

 

EDIT:

This is cheaper:

That is a nifty packaging with the foot pedal controller.  I have one of those that I got on Ebay a while back.  It was not expensive to get at the time.

What aspects of the game do you control with the foot pedal?

There are various options:

  • When using a joystick, you can use it like the Omega Booster grip, separating thrust and shield
  • When using a driving controller, you can map thrust, shield and fire there.

The setup is very flexible. And you can use it for any other joystick game too.

Update! 

 

I got feedback from Marc, who stores the packs for me. There are at least 4 packs available (maybe 6, he will double check), shipping is 17€ to Europe and 37€ (ouch!) to North America.

Now that's what I'm talking 'bout Willis!

 

- That packaging is awesome!  Thrust+ Platinum was one my earliest homebrew purchases. I picked up a foot pedal controller, as soon as I could, and never looked back. The game is excellent without it, but is a totally unique and satisfying experience with it. :thumbsup:

Thanks! Are you using a joystick or a driving controller with the foot pedal?
