The customized machine sports an Xbox 360-themed grill insert, a host of internal green LEDs, an Xbox 360 controller emblem, and an internalized WiFi adapter.
That thing looks cool! He should start making a small business of selling these. Similar to that dude who paints the PS3's. I mostly like the internalised wi-fi adapter, makes things look much cleaner.
Pretty darn good! Love the "xbox button" on the top ^^
only mod i have is a talismoon tiltboard on my black controller :P
I wonder if i could convince them to sell me one like that right out of the box...
I bet it looks amazing glowing in the dark! I also like the white disk tray more than the chrome - it just looks more substantial. MS should hire this guy to help design the next console.
I dont see why they just dont offer these options to the user. It's kind of sad that you have to deal with a static console with no options, when people have been doing visual mods to their PCs for years. If the failure rate of the Xbox wasnt so high, I'd do cool mods to my console as well. By the guys comments, his mods mad the thing run better too...
That does look cool!
Wow hell yeah, that's what I am working on doing right now...
Why so many green LEDs? You just need 3 red LEDs to make anything looks like a 360! Just kidding, couldn't resist! :) @Dukester101 Xbox 360 and PSP can change faceplate. You can use skins on any other console (and those two also) and it's easy to find on the internet. But, still I agree that they would make the consoles more customizable.
The 360 should have looked somewhat like his... really awesome.
The xBox does look something like this. In fact, it looks exactly like this, it just has a few more lights and a grill in this version. If you want this, build it. Not everybody wants a bright green glow, maybe an LED on/off switch would be beneficial. I do think that this guy is smarter than some at Microsoft since he managed to put the wireless INSIDE the box. Bravo!
Call me crazy, but BLEH! I would take me good ol' elite any day over that hideous thing. I dislike the GIANT Xbox symbol on the side of the console. Don't get me wrong, the work he did was phenomenal but if that was what Microsoft released at retail, I would be forced to buy my own case mod. I guess, maybe, if it was black it would make a difference. NOTE: This is just my opinion and I'm not trying to impose it on anyone :)
Does that big X on the side flash red when it gets the ring of death? That would be cool.
i just wish my 360 didn't look and sound like a home appliance.
But even I think thats badass.... very... badass... I did add the LED's like the Wii has to my ps3, its on all the time and shares the power that the front LED's are using, looks pretty cool. I'd pay this guy to do something like that to my PS3.. Y'kno if microsoft sold the 360 with looks like that.... they'd probably have atleast a million more sold...
