Don't have anything to say except enjoy. I find this a very nice looking controller. Those 2 white ovals are lights. Also notice how it has a 6-button layout like the Sega Saturn controller. The buttons are labeled A-F. Start and select buttons in the middle are unlabeled. This looks like a later alpha and has the final xbox logo. The shiny plastic is translucent, but the camera couldn't pick up it's innards. The entire controller is also translucent. A quick look at the pivot area of the analog stick. Reminds me of the N64's. A look at the top of the controller. At this point, the xbox had bumpers and triggers. The bumpers are designated as 7 and 8, probably to avoid confusion because the letters A-F are the first six letters of the alphabet. Also, can someone enlighten me on why there is a power input on a wired controller? The two triggers are on the back and are unlabeled. They are flat, so I find it very easy for fingers to slip off. Also, can anyone also explain why there is a battery compartment as well on the controller? Now for some internal goodies. I only took pictures of the back of the board because I couldn't get the board out. Short wires, screws and tight fittings. Ugh. No sense in destroying this thing yet! Eventually I'll get my dad to help me pry the board out and get pictures of the front. He's better at handling this stuff than I will ever be. One useful gene that didn't get passed down.
