Chinese Retailer Selling Xbox One Components

Apparently some Chinese wholesalers selling replacement casing for Xbox One. It is unclear at this stage whether this is a genuine seller or not but seen as it is listed on the global trade site Alibaba then there is a chance that this could be real. (Xbox One)

Hard to tell

That monster brick is big. I really don't get it but whatever. I have a feeling that it gets very hot and that the reason why its not built in.

If you campare it relative to the plug hole it seems to be about 3"w 2 1/2"h 5-6"l

No surprise really, they are probably all made in China so it is not really surprising that some components have leaked onto the market.

Alibaba is pure scam, there a lot of thieves there !

At least forty thieves, I'd wager.

I wonder if China make good on allowing home consoles sales in certain regions.

I'm ordering a dozen, filling them with old pinball machine parts, and staking a spot outside GS on the 22nd.

Are the chinese angered with MS because there is still no release date for xbone in China and decided to sell the console piece by piece? ^^

Xbox still using X-Clamps, one of the main reasons for RROD on the xbox 360!! Come on MS didnt learn after 8 years. X clamps lose tightness after couple of years. PS3 had the same problem but had bigger heat sinks. Thats why PS3 had YLOD but took longer to show.

Actually, Alibaba is full of cheaters like this who post "we have this and that" at a time when it's more or less unrealistic to have what they advertise (they are always conveniently lined-up to use new releases to scam money, this is common knowledge in the mainland)

So with Alibaba and these sorts of ads, it's more like 95% scam 5% legit.

That being said, the parts are made mostly in China. So I wouldn't find this impossible, just very unlikely.

One thing is sure, this guy is going down in China after the news.

EDIT: www.gameshining.com appears to be the website and with a quick search they do not have anything related to xbox one on their website. So most likely they know whey will get these parts, but cannot sell them now. Debunked, neeext! :)
