    Are controller shells interchangeable?


    I have the original Xbox One controller (purchase in 2014 with the console), but the shell/ casing has broken. I've found a few replacement shells on eBay (referred to as the 'Xbox One S' controller) and wondered if I'd be able to use them on the original
    controller?

    On the newer design the area around the 'guide' button is part of the controller 'faceplate', but on the original controller it's a separate module, so can I just buy a newer design shell and change it over? Or are the screw holes and overall fitment different
    on the newer design?

    - Dan

    I don't recall them being interchangeable and I wouldn't recommend it personally due to different versions of the controller board and controllers ect

    Oh... controller woes....

    The matterial the shells are made from is different. (ABS plastic etc)

    You can feel the difference by pressing your thumb nail along the shell just under the thumb sticks. The 360 shell is tough and resists pressure like it should while the X1 shell does not and will flex inwards, even in an area where it should be structerly
    the strongest.

    Give it a try and listen to all the creaking going on in the X1 controller, now try the 360 controller.

    Loved the Big Duke controller, but both it and the S had the same flaw. The cord would break at the controller. Went through a lot of em over the years.
