I’m also having this problem: Even the most basic of speaker systems could beat this on price and performance but if you’re a big fan of world of warcraft, crysis or farcry then go ahead, get the starter kit of just the lights and have a great amgx using it, gaming really is a whole new experience with this alone!
I want to use the fans and vieta rumble for the new oculus rift for movement, just signed up for ambx SDK hopefully to add it to farcry3.
