Ammunition used as Xbox 360 controller buttons

It was reported that yesterday bomb disposal experts were called to a home in West Belfast as a number of ammunition rounds were found. In an update today on the BBC website it has been revealed that the ammunition in question was actually imitation rounds used as custom Xbox 360 controller buttons.

The property in Sliabh Dubh Lane was cordoned off on Tuesday night as a security operation was launched. Since then the Police have revealed the items have been taken away after being declared not suspicious.

A quick image search online reveals a number of modding sites out there offering this service. To any of you who customise your controllers, we’d advise against using imitation bullets. At least if you don’t want the local police department knocking down your front door and confiscating your beloved controller.
