    53 euro? That’s it? I thought it will cost you
    I want to import it. It looks like not some premium stuff that costs a lot.

  • Nekkedsnake

    no word on a release to other regions?

    • Nyxus

      Not at this time.

  • Solid Snakes Revenge

    Pretty neat.

  • Alex

    But does it work in the rain?
    I may import one just for the heck of it, since I don’t own an iPhone.

      kojima is a flaming apple fanboy so he will never do anything for the galaxy :p

      • No Place For Hayter

        Apple is just more generally considered as the norm when it comes to music players and mobile phones.

    In theory would I be able to fit an ipod touch in there instead?

    • Nyxus

      It’s for iPhone 5 and 5S, if that helps you.

  • Harrison

    Would be great if they made it for the 4/4S -_-

    • barthelfatness .

      yes, yes it would. then again, i think the iphone fits the “70’s technology” description a bit better 😛
