It took me two days of constantly banging on it with a hammer to finally crack the shell. I got mad at it one day after Connor wouldn't stop jumping on crap I didn't want him to.

Just chucked straight out the window. I went downstairs and got it and it still turned on, but I put off it's complete destruction until yesterday.

Also, does anybody know if the springs for LT/RT would be a good substitute for the spring of the whammy bar in a Rock Band guitar? The original snapped and the pen spring I replaced it with is way too loose, and wont hold properly.

Should have gotten a bigger hammer.

Or, you know, not swing it like a 3 year old girl.


If you really want to break something like a controller, it doesn't really take that much force.

If I can bust up sturdy couches at work with a hammer, a controller should be no problem.

I'm pretty sure I could do some damage just throwing it at a floor/wall... how one takes two days with a hammer is beyond me. Why you'd want to break one to begin with, I don't know either.

^^^ That.

I've broken a controller just by throwing it, you must be super weak.

Must have been using a plastic kiddie toy hammer, or one of those inflatable ones.

Although I can see the fun in being destructive, you should have just sold the controller if you didn't want it anymore. Every dollar counts.
