Ben Heck’s PS360 Sixaxis Controller
Console modder extraordinaire Ben Heck is at it again. This time, he’s carefully taken the guts of the Playstation 3’s SIXAXIS controller and sandwiched them inside of an Xbox 360’s wireless controller.

Logitech Z-5500 Speaker Wood Case Mod: Gorgeous

National Console Support is now offering replacement shells for the Xbox 360 in see-through, glossy black, and an oh-so-lovely chrome finish.
