DS Mod! But what to do...

Post by CronoTriggerfan » Sat Aug 02, 2008 1:20 am

Okay, I think I'm going to mod up an old phat DS for my friend's birthday, as he is an avid 360/FPS lover, but is far out of date on his handheld technology; he's had a GBC for all these years, and just recently got a GBA at a garage sale. :roll:

Anyways, I have two ideas. Seeing as he is a 360 nut as well as an FPS whore (his favorite being Halo 3), I need some help deciding between two mod ideas I've got. One would be a Halo-themed DS in which I'd take a black DS case, engrave the Halo symbol in the top center, throw a thin sheet of plexi behind it and illuminate it with a blue LED.

The other would be an Xbox 360-esque mod, in which I'd take a white DS case, engrave the Xbox "X" in the front, back it with plexi, and illuminate it with green LEDs. I'd also paint the buttons to match those of the 360 controller.

So, of those, which do you want. Vote it up! :D

My vote's for the Halo one, but mostly because I can't stand white devices. lol

Wow, this is pretty damn close! :lol: I'm personally leaning toward the 360 mod, as the DS case is already white, but I dunno what I'm gonna do just yet.

I think a XBOX 360 mod would look killer.

Also, I tied the vote.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

Thanks. :P I've been thinking a bit about the 360 one, and it would look really nice if I put a stainless steel or brushed aluminum circle around the "X" on the front, like the 360 controllers are.

Ba ha ha! I sold him my white DS phat, so xbox themed mod wins! :D

And for a brushed aluminum ring, you could use one of those PSP replacement rings, they are like $3 on DX. Then you have elements from all the different game companies!

Well, the Halo 3 will fit because he likes that game.

I would definitely go for halo. And i heard theres a halo coming out for ds so it would be a cool bundle pack. Allthough, instead of just black i would choose dark green and black and possibly a bit of shiny gold(like master chief's helmet

Halo is NOT coming out for the DS. Also, I think he is gonna go with the 360 mod, I sold him my white DS to use. :)

Yeah, the 360 mod was the one I ended up doing, and it's already completed. Well, it was, but the colors I used to paint it were... off. It ended up looking more like a Japanese Super Famicom controller than an Xbox controller, so I ordered another button replacement kit to give it another go! :P

Either way, it works out, as I can now use these buttons for a PDA mod.
