How would you mount the xbox controller like the one that are at EB Game stores.

That box has TV and xbox inside and the controller pops out on an extender support (just like handles).

What do you call these extender supports? Do I have to buy the controller together with that extender mount?

How would you make your own? I want people to spend less time on my Xbox, by making them stand up and go to the Xbox to play just like it is at the stores where you get to play some trials.

Thank you

Do you mean those pod things with the flexible tubing coming out attached to a cntroller so you can try games in shops? is that what you mean?

Most likely you would have to make your own. Unless you can find an old setup on ebay or something. making your own is probally the cheapest idea. But you might get lucky somewhere else.

Just replace your power button with a little key switch.
Then noone can turn it on without the key.

If you dont want to buy one (theres one on ebay.co.uk right now) i would start by building the pod thing out of wood or whatever and to mount the controllers i would get some flexible metal tubing ( like the ones used in showers) just thick enough for the controller wire to fit through. To attach it to the controller i would simply find a place to screw it on or make some kind of bracket. Hopefully you get what i mean. This is just an idea

just place it between your knees... there you go--you've successfully MOUNTED the xbox controller -- unfortunately without a dremel you won't be able to really get inside of it, unless you're really small and can fit into the memory card slots.

(if you're confused, see the title of the thread)

Just follow the tutorial on how to add a key switch to your Xbox.
