I have desoldering wick. My bad, but still not recognizing a chip I can desolder. xP Here’s pics of top/bottom (http://imgur.com/a/Ea6If).
Should’ve clarified that this is the limited edition white and red PS3 SFxT Fightstick Pro. Has a white turbo panel housing and 4 additional player LEDs above the home button. Previous post has pics to show how the home button doesn’t line up when swapped. I can see how a normal TE can swap between PS3/360.
Edit-1: Last resort would be to paint another housing white and use an undamaged 360 turbo panel PCB. Really want the original look of the stick to remain intact. Drilling holes for buttons is also a possibility but not one I want to do on a LE stick.
