MorbidStix is proud to be the industry leader in Steampunk inspired gaming design since 2009. We currently offer the Steampunk design exclusively for our Xbox 360 consoles and controllers. Are you unfamiliar with Steampunk? Here’s a quick background:
Steampunk is a contemporary lifestyle/philosophy/genre/style often affiliated with science fiction. It can apply to all walks of life, but here at MorbidStix we focus on the gaming nature of the genre. In recent years, Steampunk genre has been associated with the very popular Bioshock gaming series. This leads us back to our Steampunk design.
Since Steampunk is contemporary, MorbidStix Steampunk designs are very antique in their appearance. The Steampunk controllers, which are our second version, are of course official, brand new Microsoft controllers featuring antique straight grain finish, custom, hand-crafted genuine leather grips, antique skeleton keys, custom, hand-crafted stamped ABXY buttons, antique copper riveting, and custom joysticks. The skeleton keys are actually functional- they are required to power on each controller. Our Steampunk controller is the single most requested item here at MorbidStix.com and has been featured on over 200 other websites since its inception. Long-time Steampunk advocator Bruce Rosenbaum has been heavily involved in the evolution of our design and has chosen to feature MorbidStix.com and our Steampunk controller in an upcoming book. Rosenbaum has dedicated so much of his life to the Steampunk culture that he’s gone on to create both ModVic and Steampuffin. ModVic offers Steampunk decorating, design, and restoration for the home while Steampuffin specializes in Steampunk inspired appliances and business décor.
Steampunk design is also available on Xbox 360 consoles through a variety of models. The consoles are brand new Microsoft slim versions which feature the same antique wood grain finish as the controller, but also have real copper and brass strapping, clover brass ventilation, hand-laid genuine leather, antique copper stud work, and a gold leaf power button. Additionally, each console comes with the matching controller- featuring the brass key guide, the wood finish, and leather grips. Consoles have additional options for lighting upgrades as well. This console is so cutting edge that it has won the company several competitions and was named the best custom console on Sticktwiddlers in 2012.
We take pride in each and every customization and design we do here at MorbidStix.com, but our Steampunk design is one of our favorites. More customization and alterations occur within this design than any of our other offerings. We are currently working toward offering the Steampunk style in PS3 as well.
If you’re interested in further information regarding Steampunk customization, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are more than happy to assist our customers with any inquiries you may have.
