DualShock 3 And Xbox 360 Frankencontrollers

Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku wrote,

"The Xbox 360 DualShock? The PS3 Xbox 360 Controller? Over at Xbox-Scene Forums, moderator RDC has modded an Xbox 360 controller into a PS3 controller, writing: "The D-pad, Select, PS, Start, Square, Triangle, Circle, Cross, L1/R1 and L3/R3 buttons are all wired up right now and working, as are the LEDs for showing which controller it is." So, yes, this Frankencontroller will work with a PS3. And if that wasn't enough, RDC did the same in reverse by modding a DualShock 3 into an Xbox 360 controller. Take a look after the jump."

Yeah, I don't know about these. I saw the pictures and thought the story was too funny to pass up.

I guess it might be nice, though, for the 360 guys making the jump to the PS3 and vice-versa.

I actually wish I could get the Xbox (with dualshock inners) controller.

The Dualshock is great but was originally a PS1 controller without analogue sticks. In this state it was ergonomically excellent. Then the sticks were added. Nowadays most games are controlled mainly with the analogue sticks but, for me, it means too much stretching between thumb and forefinger with the right hand. My hand arch soon tires. Sony shouldnt be scared with experimenting with a new controller, despite the bad response to the 'boomerang.' They could release a limited edition PS3 pad, where the analogue sticks are recognised as been used the most. Id be happy to try it.

The PS3 Pad with the letters x,b,y,a insted of the legendery Square,Triangle,Circle and X

Think about it the PS3 would now be the laughing stock of the console world

The PS3 would be blowing up all over the place

The PS3 would have the last gen hardware and the crappy DVD 9

The PS3 would have the worst set of Cheecky smacktalkin inbred hillbillie sh1tkicking kids in the world purchase thier product

PSN would not be free

But it aint like that
And you know what it was always meant to be like that
From the very begining
It's all in the Pad

As immature as this is, I found it rather amusing...

I would love to have a 360 pad with a dpad that did not suck, and a PS3 controller with softer edges and a bit "longer" grips. Sort of a combination of all of the qualities that do not suck from both pads.

Isn't this just a case of attaching the other controllers button faces onto the original controller? What wiring is needed for that?

jtucker783078d ago

They haven't just stuck the PS3 buttons on the 360 controller, they've actually made the controller compatible with the PS3.

So I guess the re-wiring comes from having to get the customised 360 controller to work with the PS3.

(And vice versa with the PS3 controller working with the 360.)

I would like to have the 360's controler for my PS3 please. If that mod is retail quality and it works with rumble, I wouldn't mind buying it.
