Evil Controllers, a website that sells customized and modified controllers, is now offering specially skinned Xbox One controllers for gamers who want their gaming accessories to stand out.

 

These customized controllers cost between $110 and $130, depending on the skin. However, Evil Controllers is knocking $20 off the price for now. The custom controllers come with a six month warranty and function exactly like a regular Xbox One controller.

 

For comparison, the standard Xbox One controller retails for $60. 

 

Visit the Evil Controllers website to see the other custom controllers available. Check out other modifications from the site and catch up on everything you need to know about the Xbox One, arriving November 22.

 

Our Take:
I generally do not spend more money than I have to on games and hardware, so the controllers aren't for me. But these types of items cater to gamers who like to have unique controller or console skins and they do a fine job. The customized controllers look cool and will definitely stand out from the crowd. That is if you have enough money left over after buying a $500 console.

So they basically take apart an OEM controller, paint some of it, and then resell it with a huge markup.  Pretty sweet gig.

Nope, just paint:

All they do is take a $60 controller, paint at least the front orange, and then resell it with a $30 markup (plus overpriced shipping).

 

If you're decently skilled with spray paint, this sort of thing can be done for $5-10 at home.

No apparently they do mods: http://www.evilcontr...s.com/mods.html

 

Now the XB1/PS4 being new, they probably don't have any mods for it just yet.
