3DS-like Circle Pads

Post by lordhardware » Sun Mar 16, 2014 4:31 pm

hello friends, its been a long time since ive been on but I'm much older now and decided to convert my Ouya into an Android Tablet/Portable Gaming System.

While messing with design strategy etc I begun thinking about size, I really want it to be easily slipped in a bag (even WITH much larger battery capacity). Ive loved the 3DS Circle pads since I first played with them, and while not as good as a 360's thumb stick for dexterous shooters, they are more than capable, and also have that incredibly low profile.

So my question is twofold, how do they differ wiring wise, (could I just drop them in a 360 cavity?) and where can I obtain them or third party equivalents?

Thank you in advance :)
