Modded Controller Buying Guide
If you are in the market for a modded controller for the gaming system of your choice, Mega Modz Planet Buying Guide will set you on the right path. Selecting a gadget that will turn around your gaming routine is not easy and requires a thorough research of the market and the products offered. We are offering this guide as an online source of technical information, features overview, useful tips and technology comparison to reduce the confusion most gamers experience once find themselves in the middle of a modified gaming pad buying process.
Now that you are ready to start learning about Mega Modz modding technology, let’s begin.
Any gaming controller becomes modded when a special modchip is installed inside of it. The chip presses the buttons on the remote on the behalf of the user, thus enabling a gaming character to implement actions in the game with greater ease. There is no hacking or any alteration of the original controller hardware involved in a modded remote building process except for adding of the additional chip, therefore using a product won’t get your account with Sony or Microsoft banned or suspended.
There are a lot of modding companies on the market offering their own modchips that vary by a set of factors such as a memory capacity, a processor speed, a number or mods offered etc.
Mods can be compared to the perks that are unlocked as the game progresses, they are helpful and fun, but not enough to succeed. A mod controller won’t do magic to your gaming performance, you will still have to aim, hide, analyze and strategize like you normally do during the game play, but it will definitely add a variety of useful skills that will improve your kills to death ratio.
In late 2013 Sony PlayStation came out with a new DualShock 4 controller that featured several improvements compared to the previous version. It provided a better control due to improved sticks and triggers, a multi touch pad on the front, an enhanced battery and a new Share button for instant gaming achievements posting to the social media. We were excited to mod the new platform and to start offering a bigger number of modifications available for DualShock 4 remotes as opposed to DualShock 3 ones.
Released in November of 2013, a new Xbox One controller was a significant improvement over the previous generation of Xbox 360 remotes. Redesigned controller shape along with very responsive d-pad, thumbsticks, triggers and bumpers were more sensitive to user’s movements and provided better grip and accuracy. In early 2014, Mega Modz team successfully completed the development of Xbox One modchip offering more options and their variations to customers.
Prior to the release of Sony DualShock 4 controllers, DualShock 3 remotes have been on the videogames market for nearly seven years and have gained a great popularity due to their reliability and endurance. We have been selling modded PS3 controllers from the day one offering for up to 13 functional available modifications and design customization options. With the appearance of PS4 consoles the demand for PS3 modified remotes has gradually declined, but the product is still available and can be customized to one’s liking.
Xbox 360 controllers were introduced in 2005 featuring a sharp modern design that immediately attracted fans all over the globe. Mega Modz was originally selling 1.0 software version for Xbox 360 modified remotes but had to develop a more advanced platform due to many requests from the customers. Released in 2015 and available today, 2.0 Xbox 360 platform exactly matches the one for the Xbox One offering same features and programming options.
