I couldn't bear the PS3 dualshock / sixaxis controller any longer, so decided to fit a PS3 dualshock into an Xbox 360 wireless controller. A similar pad has been made before by Ben Heck using a non-rumble PS3 sixaxis controller, but with no disrespect to his fine work I wasn't keen on the method he used. His 'ps360' pad was made by removing the 360 controllers PCB and replacing it with a modified PS3 one, gluing tact switches into place underneath buttons etc, and attaching the thumbsticks with perfboard hot-glued in place. I didn't think this would be very strong or durable and I also didnt want to cut away thumbstick guides etc as I didnt think it'd end up 'feeling' anything like a 360 pad.So I set about dismantling the two pads, to see how else this can be done. After some measuring and guestimating I was fairly sure I could leave the existing 360 board in place with some modifications, and get a cut-down PS3 board in there too - that way I can use all of the existing 360 buttons, sticks, triggers etc and everything will 'feel' like it does out of the factory.1.jpgThe two controller boards: (those with a keen eye will notice this is a sixaxis board and not a dualshock one. As this was just a testing stage I was playing around with a dead 360 and sixaxis board, as I didn't want to damage the 'real' boards I would be using later!)2.jpgRemoving non-essential bits from the 360 board:3.jpgTrimming the 360's LT/RT trigger support frames, and test-fitting the PS3 board:4.jpgAbout two thirds of the wiring complete:5.jpgAll wiring complete, the more powerful 360 rumble motors attached to the dualshock board:6.jpgAll wiring complete, fitted into the front of the 360 controller shell (notice PS3 board has been cut down to size!):7.jpgShaving the inside rear 360 controller casing for a good fit:8.jpgPlugging in the PS3 battery:9.jpgThe completed controller:10.jpgThe pad works exactly as expected, including all tilt/movement controls, the ring-of-light to indicate controller/player number, analogue triggers and charging etc. Charging is done through the Xbox play and charge port on top of the pad (I didn't want PS3 pads mini-usb poking through somewhere looking out of place!).A quick clip of the controller playing Killzone 2 (rather badly, trying to play through the video recording means a second or so delay ) For some reason though youtube keeps rotating the video

I prefer the PS controller to the 360 one, 360 gives my wrists cramp.
