Well, a new day - a new Dreamcast mod :D

Xbox 360 buttons and analog stick onto a Dreamcast controller!

Looks awesome if you ask me - kind of like a 'new age' controller!

Dreamcast, it's still thinking.

Internal VGA, extra cooling fans, disc activity LED, SD card reader done :-)

The buttons are nice, but that stick looks weird in it.

I never finished a mod of a DC > NES controller I was working on. I always had issue getting the wires soldered onto the Dreamcast end of the controller. Other than that I finished the mod. Regardless I am looking for someone to either finish it or make me one lol.

awesome! i was thinking to the same thing, but the only bad is wrong color order.. i wonder if this controller's buttons are the solution:

looks like only the white plastic inside have the letters in bas-relief, and the coloured transparent top is just empty. if it is, colours caps could be swapped to the right order! someone own this controller?
