    Help me to identify the brand of this weird 3rd party Xbox controller.
    • It's for original Xbox, not 360 or One
    • It's transparent like the Microsoft crystal controller
    • The black and white buttons are above the ABXY buttons
    • The "jewel" in the middle is like empty bubble with no logo under it
    • The cable is transparent also
    EDIT: It's NOT any of these:

    It is just a third party controller from Europe. They are easy to get. I actually have one right behind me.

    Interesting..can you tell me if there's any brand written on it, or anything? Also what are those two triangular buttons below the jewel?

    That is definitely one ugly controller. Doesn't look all too comfortable either. Anybody have any experience with it? Does it at least feel sturdy? How are the LB/RB/Triggers?

    I mean, I totally get the concept. It's supposed to closely resemble the XBOX system itself. I just think the design isn't very aesthetically pleasing at all.

    Screw their feelings, they released one of the cheapest looking/ugliest controllers I've seen. It looks like one of those controllers I'd try my best to not get stuck with when playing games with friends. It could just be my whoreness for first party controllers, but seriously, not a fun looking controller to use.

    I usually like me some seethrough electronics, but this... kinda reminds me of something else.
    Looks like some kind of adult toy.[​IMG]Maybe because it's not as clear as other devices that actually managed to pull off that look, I dunno. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
