No I have it set to
30% infill
walls 2.0
and temp 230 bed 63
You could try to do some E-step tuning, here's a guide on how to do some basic tuning: https://teachingtechyt.github.io/calibration.html

(if you want to go a more "I want it all tuned" route, try this guide: https://github.com/AndrewEllis93/Print-Tuning-Guide it involves a different printer firmware but makes stuff go faster and sometimes prettier. I used this guide for my Voron V0.1, turned out great.)

Are you using PLA? If so I would lower the temps to 215, bed 60 (depends on your warpage, I live in New Hampshire so it's a bit chilly over here, gotta up the temps a bit more.) Do a few more solid bottom and top layers and you should hide some more defects.

Thanks for the tips, honestly it doesn’t bother me I think It looks nice plus those are the inside parts, as long as I get to play once I finish it.

So I know you said you don't care, but if you wanted to eliminated those little gaps on the front of your case, (I assume you print it face down) increase the initial layer flow by 10-20%. I find this makes for a cleaner surface when printing cases like these

Thank you for the tip I will try it out on the next shell, I just sold a ps2 and I don’t want customer to not like it.

I absolutely love the idea of the LEDs in there, look into making a very tiny cheap clear 3d print diffusion layer around the sides of the joysticks, it would make it look so freaking cool!

This brings me back to the days of Acidmods where everyone was putting sound reactive LEDs behind the buttons on their PSP's. Love it!

I’m pretty much done with the portable I wired of the usb and tested a game, but I’m having issues with analogs when I go up it goes down. When I turn left it turns right. Is my wiring correct ?

I’m using a cheap ps2 controller, I was going to use the one I mentioned but I’m saving that one for another project I have.

How amazing that you can use the Nintendo switch analog sticks on cheap control boards. Change the position of the VCC and GND wires, supply the gnd with the voltage of the VCC and connect the gnd to the analog VCC.
