Massive Original Xbox Controllers Transformed Into Xbox 360 Controllers, For Halo

As promised, Microsoft’s Halo team is bringing Duke to their big Halofest celebration this weekend — that is, the massive Duke controller that originally sold with the original Xbox.

The Halo crew commissioned hardware modder Ben Heck to transform eight classic Dukes into wireless pads that will work with Xbox 360s. Watch the video to see how that works–and to see what some lucky people at this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo might actually win.

The Duke controllers, like Halofest, are part of Microsoft’s celebration of this November’s 10 anniversary of the release of the original Halo: Combat Evolved. A lot has changed in a decade, but one thing is constant: the Duke is still a beast.
