Any word on a hard case with a + pad?

I remember an article here describing the possibility of a hard case that has a gameboy style controller.....does anyone know of any developments?

because i would kill for a version of Street Fighter II, MKII or ANY fighting game really............ahhhhhhhhhhhh to dream...........

Like making it so it feels like a game controlelr? No thanks sepcially since it'll probably cost a ton.
