Hacked 360 controller makes dual-joystick Virtual On possible

Classic mech fighting game Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram is coming to the 360, but the proprietary control scheme (dual full-sized joysticks) isn’t exactly implemented well in the 360 controller. So what’s a Sega fan to do? Oh, how about hack a couple containers of Japanese candy onto the controller?

It’s a pretty rough hack, with wires running everywhere and slightly crooked joysticks, but it might just work. Original control schemes are a pain to implement, but sometimes they are essential to the game experience. Look for Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram on XBLA this Wednesday, and look for Choco Baby at your local Asian foods emporium. I’ve got some right here, actually (and they’re nasty).
