Modders hack N64 controller to work with Xbox One

Back at E3 this year, Microsoft announced a fancy new Xbox One controller that will let users modify it by swapping out the analog sticks and D-pad, and even remapping buttons to new paddles on the bottom.

Fortunately this nonsense was short lived, and Apple has reversed some of its bans.

Seeing as how bottle caps are used as currency in the game's post-nuclear apocalypse setting, he figured they were just as good as cash in paying for the next game.
