i was wondering, if i put a switch for the 4 controller ports. switch per port. and connect it to the black or red wire, for both sides. could i disable a port using this particular method.

Yes that would work with either the black or the red wire it doenst matter as long as you cut one of the wires that is going to the controller port. Im not sure why in the hell you would want to do something like this but it is possible

if my logic is correct, you just need to put the power/ground for the controller ports (black AND red) onto a switch. might wanna use a push-on/push-off switch, although i can't remember what you need in terms of poles/throws. too early. bleh.

Well he wouldnt have to add a switch to both the black and the red wire just one of them. Hooking one of them to a switch would work just fine

Not entirely correct... you would have to add a switch to the Positive (Red) wire. Even if you cut the black wire, the metal shielding on the port would touch the metal on the rest of the case, and become a ground... keeping your controller working.
