Sick hybrid: Xbox 360 controller inside a DualShock 3

Are you sick of playing XBLA games with the 360 controller’s rubbish D-Pad? Well, thanks to the modding community, help is on the way. The above photo is a particularly sweet mod in which someone trapped a 360 controller’s brain inside a DualShock 3’s body, using the power of SCIENCE!

It’s missing a few things, such as headset support and trigger buttons, but this is something that the creator hopes to include in his next attempt. Definitely a cool hybrid though, in that “goes against everything Mother Nature intended” kind of way. He even changed the LEDs to a more 360-flavored green. 

Not something that I imagine would be handy for all Xbox games, but could definitely be worth a look for the SHMUP fans among us.
