Why ? So I can actually use my custom arcade cabinet with the 360 without having to re-do the whole soldering/gamepad wires/buttons crap again... and still be able to use it with what it works with now... xbox and ps2
just don't feel like ripping it all apart when a damn adapter would be so much simpler... hell, there has got to be a way to do it.. I been waiting but it looks like it is never gonna happen
If I am wrong and anyone has seen an adapter like that please post so I know where to get em

but eventually they should have a adapter for the xbox360 and all will be good
p.s. it works great for old classic games like mortal kombat on the PC using MAME

Anyway, I'm still unsure if we will continue to make these. I might do a run of 5 or 10 and see how well they sell. As I have mentioned to many in emails, the price is probably going to be in the 200 dollar range. I know it's steep, which is why I have be reluctant to offer them at all.
A lot of the cost is labor. As you might have seen, these controllers are not our main business. As the holidays pick up, our labor time gets more valuable as we build our Jamma and Arcade boxes for customers. I hope you don't mind my honesty, but that's just how it is .
I did the prototype to get a feel for the market, and I see that there is room for something like this. I encourage anyone that wants to do it themselves and sell them, to go for it. I think you can do pretty well. I'll mention a few of the short comings if you do attempt to make a business out of this.
1. There is a security chip on 360 controllers. Only Microsoft and select 3rd party manufacturers can make controllers for the 360 because of this. This is why we hack a gamepad. Don't expect anything from Ultimarc or X-Arcade anytime soon.
2. The official live headset that comes with the 360 is a pain in the butt. It will be very difficult to get it working on an arcade stick. The best option I have found is to use a non official headset.
3. Make sure you wire up a guide button so you can connect the controller to the 360. I don't believe the 360 auto detects a controller plugged it, but you need to hold down the guide button to get it connected (I could be wrong on this). But, it also means you can swap games and shutoff the console from the arcade stick, and it's a nice selling feature .
I'd be more than happy to answer any questions in here or via email.
