Dead Xbox 360 turns into very much alive arcade stick

The Xbox 360 is a wonderful video game console, but it has a bit of a problem with getting what's known as the Red Ring of Death. This means it overheats and essentially breaks itself. Very annoying! But hey, when life hands your lemons, make lemonade. Or, in this case, when life hands you a bricked Xbox 360, make an arcade stick.

That's exactly what one spurned gamer did, using his useless console as an opportunity to make one unique and definitely awesome arcade stick. Now, when he goes out and buys a new Xbox, he'll be able to play Street Fighter IV on it on another Xbox. That's called looking on the bright side, friends.
