I may be wrong here, but doesn't the game delete all of your save data if you failed to eject in time before your machine blew up?
If that is the case, the developers must make the on screen kinetic controls very accurate and responsive. Either that or remove the save deletion system if they couldn't do it.
If it works then we don't have to put up shoddy kinetic inputs at all.
That's true. Even ejecting wasn't necessarily that much better though, as I think you had to pay for a replacement machine. If you weren't very good at the game, you'd end up running out of cash very quickly.
I've got the original, but didn't play it much. Bought it mostly to have a go with the brilliant controller, and just to own a copy. It was beautifully put together. I'm not sure I'd want the game without it.
