Arcade enthusiast creates custom dual-joystick from an Xbox controller and a candy box

It's hands-down the ugliest controller mod I've ever seen, and yet it's the most endearing. A fan of the Virtual-On arcade games recreated the series' unique method of control by extending the Xbox 360 controller's dual joystics with candy packaging.

If you've never had the pleasure to play Virtual-On, which pits a bunch of anime-style robots against one another in one-on-one deathmatches, then this all may seem a bit much. Fans will tell you, though, that playing Virtual-On on a console never felt quite right, as the dual-joysticks of the arcade allowed for incredibly tight control (and it's just a cooler way to pilot a mech, anyway).
As for our modder's effort up above, this may be a fine prototype, but hopefully he has a more solid version in the works.
