If you really, really like Japanese drumming game Taiko no Tatsujin and are planning on getting the upcoming Wii/Wii U game Taiko no Tatsujin: Tokumori!, then perhaps this drummer controller might be of interest?
On sale December 4 in Japan, this Taiko no Tatsujin Dedicated Controller Pro is priced at 29,800 yen (US$258) and measures 14.1 inches by 11.8 inches by 4.7 inches. Inside reports that it weighs 5.5 pounds, so this is a rather large controller that you might not want to lug to a friend's house. Heck, you might have trouble lugging it around your own house!
