Like many of you .. We love our gaming !! So we took it to the next level. We figured if Hot Rod guys dress up there rides, Computer nuts beef up there rigs . Why the heck cant we do the same thing to what we enjoy.
We had spent years with little choice stuck with the same plain jane stuff the manufacturers offered us out of the box. So we took the steps of bringing Mods to all with Custom Controller and Custom Case Mods. Just to give them that personalized expierience that is not offered right out of the box. Now we have the largest selection of Modding products in the industry.
