French luxury leather brand Hoon teamed up with high end video game system makers Neo Legend to product a joystick. The arcade stick HOON ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM will be available from the boutique NEO LEGEND in Paris and at www.hoon.fr starting February 18, 2011.
“Manufactured in a specialised Parisian workshop, everything was entirely made by hand. The midnight blue and white arcade stick of lacquered oak wood and corners cased in ostrich leather bring a unique aesthetic to the videogame world. HOON called upon NEO LEGEND, the arcade specialist in Europe, to design the technical parts. The arcade stick is composed of the best arcade technologies: a full panel by Sanwa, compatible with Playstation 3, XBOX 360, and PC.”
