Custom Controller Shells

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Looking to make a little extra cash and something that popped up was custom xbox 360 controller shells. I think there is money to be made here as a white controller shell costs around £10-£15, with a custom paint job and depending on how detailed the controller is you could sell for around £40-£60 maybe more, just depends on the buyer.

After buying the pains, controller case and other little bits i think you could make around £20 £30 profit per controller. I plan on giving it a try to see how things go and maybe looking into getting a website set up.


To bring in a few more customers i would like to look into case/controllers mod such as rapid fire controllers, that sort of thing.

So what do you think? Sounds like a plan or forget about it?

Thanks ¬Ben

I have seen custom controllers go for a lot, but it depends on the quality and design because a lot of people do it. Some people even do simple mods, such as put the PS3 d-pad or Nintendo D-pad onto an Xbox 360 controller because they are easier to use and just sell them like that.

Sounds good =D I will definitely buy one off you for sure if you go ahead with it!

Think about how much colorware charges people just for a simple paint job.
