I have completed a batch of Xbox 360 controller monitors. These new versions use a PCB motherboard for fast turnaround time. If you think this would be of use for your game development company, please contact me for ordering info. More pics / info below, you can also check out the Sales Page.
Hey, the first game that one of these was used for is coming out soon – Modern Warfare 2! Maybe I’ll get a special thanks in the credits, who knows?
PS3 version prototype should be done in 2-3 weeks, stay tuned for more info.
The controller monitor’s PCB. Has an expansion spot (lower right) where a header can be added to “pin out” the signals. These can be used for external displays, to trigger cameras, add logic, attach a scope, etc.
Basically this unit functions as an analog-to-digital converter for the analog controls (shoulder triggers and sticks), converting them to a 3-stage value: pressed a little, pressed halfway, pressed all the way.
Transistors and buffers isolate the circuitry from the Xbox 360 controller so as to not interfere with the signals being sent to the Xbox itself.
The LED’s mount to the bottom of the PCB to stick out the front (very efficient!)
