Console Mod Man Ben Heck is at it again. Now he’s taken the mammoth controller from an original Xbox, gutted it, and stuffed it with the contents of an Xbox 360 wireless controller.
Other than a little Xbox Guide button he added between the “Back” and “Start” buttons and the built-in headset jack, you’d never know this wasn’t just a plain old Xbox controller.
Now as a player with fairly large hands, I never really had a problem with the old Xbox behemoth, known in circles as “The Duke.” But after many marathon gaming session with the 360’s excellent controller, I’m not sure why anyone would want to go back to such a weighty thing. I guess sometimes Ben just does stuff to show that it could be done.
If you’re longing for that retro controller feeling, Ben is accepting offers and will let this beast go to the highest bidder.
