Origin PC introduces The Big O, a gaming PC with all the bells and whistles, including a liquid-cooled Xbox 360 Slim built right in, and it can be yours today for the price of a small used car.
This. Almost all of Xbox 360 games are on the PC, so why bother?
Who in their right mind WOULDN'T pass?
Getting an RRoD on that thing would be a bitch to replace lol.
You've got warranty, plus RROD is generally caused by excess heat, something you wouldn't ever have to worry about if it's water cooled.
Actually I have a friend that has his 360 inside a common ATX horizontal case... The thing is already nearly overheat proof with a simple fan cooler, it don't even come close to 60°C so the soldering never suffers. Fair to say he is a technician, but from what I see, 360 is more PC-like than we thing, it barely need adaptation to go ATX and it's fairly cheap to do. This thing in the story on the other hand, it's a PC + Xbox 360 inside the case, so maybe it has a reason to use fluid cooling and cost so much. It's a shame 360 could have been such a better console with simple changes like if its design allowed direct airflow to inside parts... For sure when they had the design ready MS didn't expected the solder law that forced use of lead free solder, but still MS could have redesigned the 360 if they weren't so preoccupied about rushing to the market and having a headstart.
Cool Impressed, but why or is it just one of those mad notions lol
The PC in top spec is a complete beast. Going from that to the 360 would probably be a big step down, but I guess if you want all the games in one place, its a good (but crazy expensive) option.
why would you do that
Most PS3 games are also on the PC (The big multiplatform ones anyways)
I get disagrees for stating fact. If you calculate the total amount of exclusive games released on the PS3 in one calender year its less then 10. If you list multiplatform games released during the same time period its more than 10-1. Most of those games are also on the PC. So what I did say is correct. Look it up people. Opps...I forgot...this is N4G.COM. Home of the fanboys
Most PS3 games really worth to play are exclusives, that's why you'll get a shitload of disagrees over you
Most sold game on PS3 is Modern Warfare 2. It's on PC case closed Most sold game on PC: WoW It's not on PS3
would buy a PS3 for multiplats? Ps3 is the home of Exclusive gaming
WRONG! PC is the king of exclusive games. If you are going to make a statement at least say it right. Consoles only, still wrong. The 360 has quite a few more exclusives. Even more correct if talking of consoles, Wii has the most exclusives. NOT "AAA" (AAA is a preference mind you), granted, but more of them. AAA games are not even that great. That means they are like a movie to me. Watch/play it once and I am done. I only play Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2 when someone comes over that hasn't seen it in action. The games looks superb and I get a lot of oohs and aahs, but their attention fades rather quickly, especially Killzone. Uncharted 2 seems to last a few levels, but never through the entire game. Most popular games at my house are Wii Sports/Resort and sometimes SMBW (casual friends). Halo 3, ODST, Gears of War, PAIN, High Velocity Bowling, Flower, Modern Warfare 2, ROMS, especially Tetris Attack and Super Mario World, and sometimes SSBB on Wii (hardcore friends). That list is in no particular order. Why is it so hard for people to have fun on more than one system? I don't play monikers (AAA games), I play games that are fun and have a lasting appeal.
If you only bought your PS3 to play exclusive games, then you will only be playing abut 5 or maybe 7 games a year then as that's how much exclusive games are released give or take for the PS3 in a given calender year. The reality is the most games bought on all systems ARE Multi-platform games simply because there are more 3rd party companies than there are 1st and 2nd party ones making exclusive games for one set platform. Simple math
they should put a seat on the top and whells on the bottom xD
Insane gaming setup. I assume if you have uber cash to burn... Now I would love to see one of these babies have a PS3 AND Xbox360 inside it with that PC setup. LOL
AWESOME, if anyone ever accused you of being a fanboy all you would have to do is show them a pic of what you got
This is N4G.COM unfortunetaly and you have people like Real Killer and others who call you a fanboy IF you do not agree with everything they say. If you are a gamer, you will play ALL systems because each one offers something different. I feel sorry for fanboys of any given system. They miss out
Multiplatform owner elitism much? I don't know if real gamers will play on ALL platforms... But they better be real rich if they want to.
I wouldn't call it elitism. It is called saving money instead of spending it on stupid crap. Stop eating at McDonalds. Stop going out to eat. Buy food that is cheap and easy to prepare. Have a few meals that are awesome a year instead of all the time. Don't waste water. Turn off lights when done. Get a better job. Whatever it takes to save a little cash. You could buy any of the sytems and games by mowing only two yards a week a year. Come on now, it is not that damn much. I have all three systems and a nice gaming PC. I am not rich by any means, but I make do with what I got so that I can play cool as games on the different systems.
Oh, so you were the guy with the station wagon.
and it cost about 1/10th as much to make
I could build that same thing for about half the price. I am not sure about 1/10th, as that is only 766.9 dollars. You could barely buy the two graphics cards for that much. But I do get what you are getting at. If you have any technical ability at all, you should always build your own. There are great sites on the net that sell all the parts for cheap and there are even barebones kits that you can add a lil muscle to and get a decent high end rig.
a completely uneccessary overpriced joke
With a rig that fast who would want to play the 360?
costs half the price of my car! lame though, add a PS3 and were talking! If someone will combine all 3 you win my money
Why the hell does it cost so much? the price is horrendously marked up.
Other than that I cannot comprehend why it doesn't cost closer to 3,000 or a little more. It would cost somewhere around 2,500 or so to build the starting one and around 5,000 to build the beefier one.
Imagine getting RROD on that beast, can't happen I know but would be quite funny.
Actually it would be RDOD as it is the new slim that is in there.
from the rig to the 360 would be like going from a ps3 to a ps1....the tech in the 360 is 3 generations old...hmmmm do i game in 540p or 1600p.... hmmm 0 to 2x anti aliasing or 96x anti aliasing, dx9 or dx11...what a fucking stupid waste of money considering you could build that pc or close to it for $2000-$2500 by switching out some over priced name brand parts...and wtf?? even as a pc gamer myself, that thing is overkill....until this horrendously long gen ends, there is no point in that much hardware, I have not even considered or looked at the specs on a pc game in years... a quality dual core, 4-6gb ram, and a $200 gpu will chew up any multiplat console-pc game and make the console version look like a low res wii game...
Lol im poor as i still managed to buy all consoles and decent pc very elite lol.
It cost more than my car too. I think it's stupid to pay 16K for crap like that when so many people need help during this bad economy. I mean just about every day someone is asking me for money. It's really getting bad out here.
