    Ben's had a lot of ideas and requests for console and controller hacks. He turns portable systems into consoles and consoles into portables. He's modded controllers to be played in various alternative ways. He's combined multiple systems into one. But there are always more ideas out there. What ultimate console mod can you come up with that Ben hasn't done yet. No system combos. No portable to console or console to portable. Show me your creativity.
