Wii Controller Hacked to Control Xbox 360

by Paul Strauss

A console modder known as sir crx has fabricated a mashup between an Xbox 360 controller and a Wii-mote, allowing the Wii control to operate the Xbox 360.

From what I can tell, he modified the 360 controller to accept Bluetooth commands, then uses it as a proxy for connecting to the Xbox through Microsoft’s proprietary wireless scheme.

While the controller is currently pretty limited in its functionality (just the joypad and buttons work at present) sir crx plans on getting more of the controller’s functions to operate with the 360 in the near future.

    It’s 7 wires coming off the board. There’s no bluetooth hacking, he simply wired the d-pad and buttons from the wiimote to the same contact points on his 360 controller.

    What on earth made you think he was doing anything to modify the 360 controller to speak bluetooth?

    This is also why crx doesn’t explain how he did it.

    You’re right. I wasn’t very clear in my explanation. Crx actually cracked open a second Wii controller to act as the Bluetooth connection point, then wired that into the 360 controller. So indirectly, he gave the 360’s controller Bluetooth connectivity.
