We were opening up a controller to clean sticky keys yesterday, and we found that one of our UKOCs (we've bought many for spare parts) had a different set of keys than usual!

The clear plastic keys felt about the same as the black keys, but they had more give to them, which I'm thinking allows them not to break as easily as UKOC keys normally do. I had never even heard of a second run of controllers being made, has anyone else? Asking on twitter didn't seem to give any concrete answers, so I'm curious if anyone else has seen this before.

Also, I want to find more of these. The controller plays great and has taken a ton of abuse, and we have 0 problems with it other than some grime building up, which is an easy fix.

Interesting. First I've seen of it. Tired of my USKOCs turning into maracas after heavy play...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who calls them maracas.

And no, never seen it.

The ones with black plastic were first generation (i have that)

A friend who bought his UKOC a few months later than me got the second generation, with transparent parts in the inside.

yep I got one of each currently.

They're also both built entirely different. You can take a keypad from one of the us controllers and throw it into a jkoc, but the other build wont fit haha.

I wish I had one of those second models, I've went through maybe three USKOCs because of those plastic legs. I bought one from ebay a long time ago that I haven't used but I don't know if it's the clear type.

It takes all of two minutes to open up your controller and find out if you won the prize!

I guess I ought to check mine, why not.

I'm not totally convinced that the clear plastic is much better. I've heard that clear plastic is more brittle than opaque plastic. But who knows.

I can definitely tell you that the clear plastic buttons have lasted way way longer than the regular UKOC buttons.

Just checked, it has the old black plastic keys.

tbh I'm surprised Konami made improvements to the controller
