If you’re going to go custom, you might as well go all the way with it–at least, that seems to be the philosophy this modder embraced for this Gears of War-inspired Xbox 360 controller. Not content simply to slap on a custom design, velocitti added the franchise’s logo and brightened up the blood-red skull with a nice LED glow.
Add a few artful paint spatters for that oh-my-god-there’s-blood-everywhere affect (hey, it’s a violent game) and this has got to be the perfect controller for Gears of War. Just hope the paint can stand up to the sweaty-handed concentration that comes with, say, Horde mode.
You’d hardly guess it from the finished product, but this was velocitti’s first controller mod! If it was me, I might stop there. The problem with coming out strong is that sometimes the sophomore effort just can’t rise above, and this one sets quite the standard.
