Did anyone ever opened one for cleaning? This is the first controller I own that I couldn't disassemble at all. Removing the screws did nothing at! It seems like the controller has clips inside...that are difficult to pry open without causing damage to the plastic. Any tips out there?
I can't remember for sure but I think it has clips on just the top or bottom of the controller. Not both. So you should be able to lift from the bottom or top to remove the back side of the controller. I've opened some before to clean without any issues but it's been a while since I've had one.
Either this or the plastic is just stuck and needs some prying with a small screwdriver.
It seems to have one clip toward the bottom edge, another one at 10mm inward from top left, then another at right hand edge. Basically distributed at locations where the three screws couldn't hold. Seems like a smart design from a saving the cost one screw from the typical four screws minimum design,but its a pain to open. I am able to separate 1/3 of the case toward bottom left then I am stuck, due to the "strategically" place clips!

tron: I hate strictlylimitedgames jash even more so when they get the rights for physical release of anything by taito.

spenoza: It occurs to me that this same limited physical release approach has hit other hobbies as well, like tabletop role playing games. Companies in that space that aren't Hasbro are all small and so they tend to do limited prints of books and then lean on pdfs.
