Hacking a Mad Catz XBox Live Arcade Stick


#1

anyone ever pulled the pcb out of one of these? im wondering if its hackable, since they are relatively cheaper than standard controllers.


#2

they are hackable. i remember seeing somebody post a pic of it. the only thing is that they are huge.


#3

seems like a great thing to hack given that they’re so cheap. If i could solder i’d definately pick one up.


#4

Looks like theres 3 grounds on it… not sure if its common ground though.

Should be a common ground. I checked with a multimeter. You also get a bunch of XBLA games with this so it’s nice. My project has come to a halt, also I haven’t been able to get my second stick open as the screws are stripped. I guess i will just have to drill out the screws and hope I don’t hit anything important.
