  • Young CEO of Evil Controllers

    Evil Controllers History - CEO Adam Coe of Evil Controllers

    The world of video games can get quite competitive, even when there are just bragging rights at stake. This is why a family owned business started in a dorm room at the University of Arizona is doing so well. Evil Controllers, which helps give gamers of all skill levels an edge, was started with help from a financial aid check. The current CEO, NAME, was only 19 years old at the time.

    Today, the company employs twelve people and is on track for strong growth in the months and years ahead. By using the ability to program video games to their advantage, Evil Controllers is able to make sure their "modded" controllers work with the popular games, even when they're frequently patched. While some say the "rapid fire" triggers are "cheating," in the world of gaming, sometimes brains make up for brawn.

    The Universal Modded Controllers at Evil Controllers are set-up to enable single shot and semi-automatic weapons to become fully automatic. As you might imagine, this is a game changer and gives players a distinct advantage on the battlefield, no matter their skill level. For those looking for a way to make modern, complicated games "fun" again, Evil Controllers offers modified controllers to enhance the gaming experience.

    With products like their modded controllers and the new "evil sticks" and other products, Evil Controllers are pioneers in the rapidly growing video game industry. Back from E3, the company is keeping their controllers up to date for your popular video games, which is important. They are also hard at work making sure their universal modded controllers work with all the new, great video games that come out every month.

    High Interest of Evil Controllers CEO Adam Coe at E3

    More than 41,000 people attended the 2009 E3 Expo. Adam Coe of Evil Controllers recently had the honor of being one of the youngest CEO's ever participating at E3, the premiere video gaming convention. This wasn't the only buzz generated around the "Evil Booth" at the convention, though.

    From Justin Wong to Prodigy (from the WCG Ultimate Gamer) to tri force (who holds the current Tetris world record), a lot of big names in the gaming world were at or around the Evil Controllers booth at the convention. Wong spent a lot of time competing against any and all, in a challenge that benefited Saint Mary's Food Bank Alliance (a local food bank.) While no one managed to beat Wong, he set a world record for consecutive Street Fighter IV wins.

    Evil Controllers was on hand to help the needy and let people know about their wide range of custom and pre-modded "rapid fire" controllers for Gears of War and other video games. They're constantly at work to make sure their controllers have what it takes to give video game players of all levels an extra edge. Beyond the rapid fire triggers, Evil Controllers also pays attention to ergonomics and fitting controllers to different video game genres.

    They didn't have a big "mission accomplished" banner behind their booth, but it would have been prudent. This family operated company from Arizona was able to generate a lot of buzz, even among all the other announcements and excitement at the annual gaming convention. From Justin Wong setting a world record to all the other people who were attracted to the booth by the unique, cutting edge video game controllers, a lot of people stopped by the "Evil Booth" to do a little good.

    The 2010 E3 Expo will take place from June 15-17, 2010, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and you can expect more good from Evil Controllers in the years to come.

  • Justin Wong Sets World Record at E3 2009

    Evil Controller News - E3 2009 - Justin Wong Sets World Record

    Evil Controllers, a family owned company that produces and sells custom and modded Xbox 360 trigger rapid fire controllers, was recently on hand at E3 2009 to experience all the excitement and also let people know about their products. They wanted to bring a little extra to E3, and decided to have professional video game player Justin Wong at their booth for a little Street Fighter showdown against anyone and everyone.

    Wong was able to set a world record at this year's E3 with a 300 win streak while playing Street Fighter IV against E3 visitors. There was no charge to play and each contestant was entered into a raffle for an Xbox 360 Elite. The successful attempt by Wong was recorded by Twin Galaxies, who are official gaming record keepers. The record was previously held by Zak Bennett, with 108 consecutive wins.

    Evil Controllers donated a can of food to Saint Mary's Food Bank Alliance (a local food bank) for each and every win that Wong racked up. The Tempe Arizona based company knows that there are people out there who need a little help - whether it's with video games and gaining an edge or with something simple like getting enough food to eat every day. And this was a way for them to show they could help with both.

    "When we realized how many people were expected to attend E3 this year, Justin and I saw this as the perfect opportunity for Evil to do some good in the world," said Jonah Coe, Director of Operations at the company.

    Evil Controllers was able to achieve that goal at this year's E3. The company didn't let their giving mood stop there. Every person who challenged Wong during E3 were entered into a raffle for a red Xbox 360 Elite. This helped draw a lot of people to the booth and caused a bit of excitement at the convention.

    Although there was only one winner who took home the Xbox 360 Elite, everyone else was able to take a look at the Evil Sticks, a recently introduced ergonomic thumbsticks controller for the Xbox 360. Other custom and modded video game controllers were on display as well. Add to that legendary gamer Justin Wong, and you had a booth that managed to generate a little buzz and energy, even in such a large sea of excitement.
