Want an Atari Controller for your Xbox 360? The 3600 Controller


Benjamin J Heckendorn has done it again. He took a piece of technology and turned it around putting a retro spin on it. This time he decided to take a wireless Xbox 360 controller (a guitar Hero 3 controller actually) and put it into an Atari 2600 joystick. The red button on the joystick only hits A, but he managed to include all of the buttons intact through some clever placement. The controller will not be great for playing some more advanced modern games, but it is perfect for arcade classics.
