Xbox360 Controller Mod with no Face Buttons of D-pad on top
Posted by XanTium | November 6 22:08 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
We received this email from the guys at acidmods:


We created a 360 controller with no face buttons or D-pad on the top. We relocated the analog stick and fiberglassed the faceplate. the D-pad and face buttons are consolodated on two digital joystick on bottom of controller.. This mod allow for all buttons and analogs to be at finger access at all times...

I can admire the work put into it.....However I don't see how putting button functions to sticks is a good control scheme.

I also commend the work done its a nice mod, however I have to agree with the previous poster sticks as buttons is not the way to go.

i have to agree with everyone else - interesting concept but incredibly impractical to actually use for gaming - and that is proved quite well with the video - it had me laughing...

Maybe after they finish with the controller mod they can work on their spelling skills.

Not my cup of tea, but damn that is pretty.

I don't so much like the buttons set as a stick either, but someone apparently does like it tongue.gif .

Anyways, seriously seriously pretty, at very least.

Look at the perspective of the camara angle!!! there was a tripod between my arms that made it a bit difficult to play and record I felt it was more important to show the functionality of the controller then to try and pwn with it.

It actualy works well since you fingers rest in the spot of the bottom sticks there easy to access.. As far as the gaming video if you knew me at all you would know im the worst person at playing games I like watching people play im a modder not a gamer. I have not played Halo in months was trying to remember the buttons I will make a new video with me neice wupping up on some one with it... one other note I was unable to find the nubs for the bottom sticks also so pushing the metal rods are a bit tricky but I think I will have the nubs today. I will also take some close-ups today after work...


And here is the biggest surprise im lousy speller but you know what they say most intelegent people lack other fundemental skills usualy social!!!



We where did not put the right analog up because we did that already on another controller. If any of you have any other ideas for a cool controller post them and we will make them we can make anything..

Well I think its fantastic! and have day dreamed of just such a controller, once mastered that controller would be better then the standard for multi player in game situational response times, to be able to do any action without compromising movement and view control, now thats something to potentially give the keyboard and mouse a run for its money. ( I repeat for all the skip reading turkeys: "a run for its money" not better then).

The sticks don't function as buttons they're underneath like the ultimate FPS controller

(correct me if I'm wrong)

completely pointless. when people create a controller mod.. all they think about is Pretty Much Halo....Halo is not god, If ya want to make a TRUE worthy controller mod.. make so its worth it for pretty much EVERY TYPE of game.
