:omg: LOVE IT!

Do you know why the silver and mauve controllers have a blue port? and the gold one has a red port?

Yeah i too find it odd. But you think if someone was going to paint it and make it seem more rare they would remember to paint the port as well. That way it would look more official.

And as for replacing the chords, i think the only way to do that is to replace the whole motherboard (Or whatever that things called) The only way to remove the actual wire is to rip it off this board.

Awesome! Thanks for clearing that up Glen! I didnt even notice how they are either blue or red on the other controllers.

And im sure if your talented with soldering you could carefully remove the wires and replace them. You would need a very sharp eye and even a steadier hand. To me, the risk outweighs the reward.

My only assumption would be that someone switched out the back. The solid colors all seem to be 2 tone, yet the clear versions seem to be straight thru.

Does the clear navy blue bottom match the color of the clear blue controller pictured above?

Pictures would most likely help in confirming :yeah:
