Let your chrome glow

It looks like the long awaited chrome controller shell from Team Xtender is nearing production. More than just a shell, this mod puts LEDs in each button, making your controller glow like radioactive skittles. Who wouldn't want that?

See a nice glowing shot after the break.

Looks like some kind of creepy deep sea fish. Nice.

5. The chrome casing makes it look like it's made out of some sort of cheap plastic, although if you lose all that and give me the LEDs, you've just made yourself a sale.

7. I like the "Coming to America" reference in the title. Now, if you could have a little mp3 play that soundbyte, the page would be complete.

10. Just because I live in northeast NJ doesn't mean I have to adorn my console and accessories as such. That is gawdy as hell and would go great with four-inch-long red fingernails and too much makeup.

11. Just thinking a little more and hopefully there will be more designs coming in the future?

12. It will get dirty, but those will match my chrome 360. Sold.

13. I'm getting one, the loser in each round of COD2 will have to use it in the next round of multiplayer split screen death matches.
