Wierd 3rd party PS3 Stick


#1

Hey guys has anyone seen this before?

I first saw it on ebay with one of the features being
JOYSTICK IS UPGRADEABLE IF DESIRE A MORE ADVANCED STICK.

Anyone have one or open one up before to check the validity of this statement.

Someone else had the same question. To my knowledge, there are no pictures of the inside of this thing, which is kind of what you need to know.

Strictly speaking, anything is modable. I have a hard time imagining that it would be any harder than a HFS3/T5 mod. Some concerns would be:

  1. Can you fit new parts in?
  2. Is the PCB any good?

If the answer to 1 is no, then I’d pass on it. Extensive modification of the case isn’t worth the time, in my opinion. You might as well build your own case, and since you need to buy parts to upgrade anyway why waste the $ on the stick?

If the answer to 2 is no, you can always get a Cthulu solderless for an easy PCB swap.
