Some good news: I started to take pre-orders for Competition PRO Retro joysticks today. Go to icomp.de and click on "shop". Shipping starts on september 1st, and I haven't yet decided if they will be available from resellers (no financial support at all, only empty promises).
I was going on what Jens said there. If you click on the shop link and look, it is 30.50 euros pre-order.
