How To Best Play Virtual On, Xbox 360 Style

Virtual On is great. Its return, a blessing. But also a curse! See, part of what made Virtual On so great in the arcades was the game's twin-stick controller. Which the Xbox 360 doesn't have.

Even the Dreamcast version had a nice twin-stick peripheral for home use, but on 360, you're stuck using the control pad. Which might make things difficult. Oh, unless you're this guy (or somebody who follows his lead).

    If you have extra DC Twin Sticks, you can mod them for Xbox 360, or hire a control pad modder to do it. I did mine last month, and made it reversible, but this is optional (details here: ). I'm modding some arcade Twin Sticks this weekend. Alternatively you can use Rinkya or a friend in Japan to buy Twin Sticks pre-modded for Xbox 360... there are some currently on Yahoo! Japan Auctions for $200-250.
