Not sure if I’ve ever shown one of these before, so here it is:
Very similar to my older models, but this one uses the Dual Shock 3 for the super-immersive rumble function and also has the original Playstation D-pad, creating a true Frankenstein’s monster of a controller.
Of note: Does the nonmenclature of calling something “a Frankenstein” rather than the proper “Frankenstein’s Monster” ever bug anyone else?
Anyway, some making of pictures after the break – enjoy!
Insides of the unit. This is actually the 2nd Dual Shock 3 PS360 controller I have built but the first I’ve bothered to put on the site. It’s using the original PS3 rumble motors, though if I recall correctly the first one I built used the 360 motors and was fine.
Top view of the guts. Not that it matters, but this model is built a lot more efficiently that past endeavors. Of course the Xbox 360 analog triggers are a pain as always.
Remember, these aren’t too terribly difficult, so if you’ve got the cash, I can usually be presuaded to build them. Check the “Email” button for more details.
NOTE: Since this mod, for whatever reason, continues to be popular, I should note than when I do make these on occasion, the current cost is $750 US. (Controllers+about 2 days labor+compensation for the dollar sucking in value)
Really, why not just get an Xbox 360 and have this controller native? That said, if you really, really want one, email me and the turnaround time is 2-3 weeks.
