I'm sure a 3rd party controller is coming for that.

Cool, but why would someone want to use the worst quality analogs in the history of gaming?

Yeah, I'm a 30 year old female. Not quite a young male hobbyist!

And yeah Moldy, I didn't understand the negatives either, especially considering what I used to do (NintendoGal)!

Don't mind though, hoped this helped some folks out. :)

Well, every analog of every xbox360 controller I have ever owned has no "soft" plastic on it because it wears out with use and it wears out pretty fast, it melts or something, I don't know it just freaking disappears. All of them are left with just the "tough" plastic which is painful to use.

I have never encountered anything like that with any other analog stick I have ever used, so yes xbox360 has the worst quality analog sticks in the history of gaming.


No idea why the post is downvoted, personally I didn't vote at all.

I don't see why this has a -5 rating. It's a pretty cool mod, regardless of the fact that 360 analog sticks suck.

I've only had the original Xbox but from the looks of it the shape of the analog sticks have been carried over to the 360. From my experience the Xbox analog sticks are bad, my thumbs would constantly slide out of position near the edge that I would have to reset them to the center. It's that stupid crater shape, as I push forward my thumb is pushing towards the top edge, mostly overlapping it. It is a very uncomfortable controller. The controller with the best analog sticks are the Sony ones, dome shape almost looking like mushrooms, very round. My thumbs are welly adjusted to them that they easily roll and stay in position. Pushing forward I push from the bottom so my thumb is never slipping towards the edge. there's also a rough texture to them so they get a good grip of your thumbs. Nintendo analog sticks are also dome shape but slightly flatter so I see absolutely no point to this mod.

Could have been worse! Could have been the Dualshock controller. That's the most awful set up I ever used

Where? I can't even find a Wii version of this controller you speak of and am very interested.

Should be pretty easy since they're bluetooth, it just needs someone to be bothered enough to make drivers. You've been able to use Wii Remotes with computers for ages so I'd imagine it's only a matter of time.

I much prefer them as they are, the rubber tips Nintendo use´╗┐ grips on my thumbs perfectly. 360 ones smooth out and lose grip fast.

Pretty cool mod.. Though while I find the 360 controller to be the most ergonomic and confortable to play with, I prefer the feel of the dualshock's analog sticks.

The CCP sticks I find the least confortable. That thin rubber ring on top wears out real fast so there's little grip after that.

Ahh, the GoNintendo hive mind doing negative votes again. What a great feature the voting system is.

Downvotes have followed the actual video on YT too. Still no one stepping up and saying why they voted this negatively.

;) I think we all know why people are downvoting this, and their silence on the matter speaks volumes about their maturity.

It is pretty sad that people are downvoting it. It's a good mod, and it's not like she's holding a gun to your head and forcing you to mod your pro controller.
