Hacking a Mad Catz XBox Live Arcade Stick

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

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

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

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.
