We use those in prison. We call them security screws.

I'd like to meet the genius who made the call to put headlight adjustment screws in our Rams that required a Torx bit that no one with a normal tool set would own unless the specifically set out to adjust the headlights on their Ram. I don't know about you but I've never heard of anyone stealing the headlights out of a Dodge Ram.

If those are the same screws in Xbox controllers, they are easy to make into regular torx screws. Simply take a drill, with a smaller drill bit, insert the end of the bit in the groove between the pin and the torx pattern. Set the direction of the drill to clockwise (drilling INTO the screw), pull the trigger a little, and you should feel a snap almost immediatley. The torque of the drill SHOULD snap the pin right out, then you have yourself a TORX screw with no security pin.
