Xbox 360 controller update

controller_update

[erdbeerfetischist] sent us an update on his arcade controller for the Xbox 360 (translated).  While this isn’t an amazing feat, the original was in a pizza box. We thought you would all be happy to know that he built a hard enclosure for it.  We dig the transparent top too.

    sounds like he’s planning to put artwork under the plexi, but that will still look cool, just in a different way. very nice hack, and a good example of what you can do with entry-level skillz.

    That may just be the messiest wiring job I have seen in my life

    I don’t dig the transparent top.

    Judging by the pair of wires leaving every button pad this guy has never heard of common ground.

    I admire his willingness to attempt something like this. I hope he keeps on hacking and improves.

  6. Bob says:

    This looks too clean, he needs to add more wires.

    @nubie,

    i am sorry to question your judgement but the current type of wired xbox 360 joysticks lack of a common ground.

    That is interesting, I thought at least that they would have a “matrix” style like the Microsoft Sidewinder that I used.

    4×4 wires in a matrix is 16 buttons (the controller only had 14 buttons though.)

    It did take a little time to reverse-engineer though, and knowledge of a 3-pin SMD dual-diode package.
