Didn't they more or less state in the atricle that the chairs never really worked properly anyway? Or they did but had an Xbox 360 reliability?

Yeah, that's a good point. I never considered what the import costs of those systems were. However, from the list of developers in the video it sounded like it was going to be playing a bunch of Amiga level games at best. Not much better than the Megadrive.
