The Controller Shop's Custom Kotaku 360 Pad is a Thing of BeautyS

The controller customization experts at The Controller Shop asked if we wanted to review one of their magical creations. I said sure. They asked what sort of controller they should send. I left it up to them. Wise decision.

Arriving today complete with custom plastic case, this Kotaku-flavored Xbox 360 controller is so pretty I'm afraid to touch it. But those 9mm steel bullet buttons and the nubbly analog stick covers are begging for my fingers so badly I'm almost embarrassed for them.

I still have to put the controller through its paces in a full review, but from a purely aesthetic standpoint it's definitely a winner.

I promise not to stick it down my pants. Much.
