It looks like accessory maker ZooZen are working on a new case for the Xbox 360 which would let you give your 360 a whole new look without ever having to crack open your existing shell.

This Xbox 360 faceplate isn’t actually bloody (I hope!), but it is certainly evocative of the horror of a zombie apocalypse–something that is becoming a more and more common experience with Xbox games every day. Seems like zombies are everywhere lately, bursting out of zombie games and invading everything else.
The guys over at the AcidMods forums recently spotted this dramatic redesign of the Xbox 360 and immediately speculated that it must be an act of clever Photoshoppery. And I’m happy to tell you, this puppy is for reals.
So this is definitely not the first Xbox 360 cake that has ever been made. But I’ve never seen a cake artist with the cojones to make one that stands in on its side, instead of in horizontal mode.
The appropriately named Christin and Justin Baker of North Carolina’s Christin’s Cakes managed to figure out how to bake an Xbox 360 cake that plays in vertical mode.
Move over, Puzzle Quest. You had a good run with the whole jewel-matching RPG hybrid, but the big boys have come to steal your throne… and rock our faces off. Gyromancer may be a little late (the Puzzle Quest folks already moved on to sci-fi), but it really doesn’t matter when this boat arrives.
This wouldn’t be the first L4D + Xbox 360 combo we’ve featured here on technabob, but I think it’s my new favorite.
Modder Tjpitbull decked out his 360 with a complete Left 4 Dead inspired look, covering the entire case with a distressed military green paintjob on both the console and controller.
I’m not sure there’s much I can say about this Thundercats Xbox 360 that it doesn’t say for itself. I mean, sure, I can throw some adjectives around, but I propose instead a moment of silence, in which we all look about the might of this design (and possibly despair).
Modding master EvilDan is the only person who would dis this Modern Warfare 2 mod. On his deviantART page, he says he’s not thrilled with it. Why? Beats me. Must be a case of maker’s melancholy.
Yeah, see, while this isn’t quite as elaborate as some of EvilDan’s mods, it’s still pretty incredible, with that peekaboo case and the silhouette.
Okay, okay, I know Brütal Legend is apparently short and all, but it only came out a week ago! One week–and already, someone’s made a damn cake for it. Listen, guys. The bakers are making the rest of us look incredibly lazy.
As far as custom controller go, this particular project isn’t loud (though yeah, bright), it isn’t overdone, and it isn’t sparkling with a bank of flashing lights… and that’s probably why the final effect is so entirely sleek and professional.
Hydrophobia doesn’t really sound like something you’d want, really–water is important, after all, and fearing it is bad–but when it’s in the form of an multiplatform game? Well, that may be more palatable, particularly when it looks like this.
Looking for an Xbox 360 controller that’ll really make a splash when you have your friends over to play some games? Check out this beautiful blue beast from XCM.
The cool thing about the XCM Blue Blood is that it’s actually a kit that you can use to mod your boring white Xbox 360 controller into a thing of true beauty.
Not only does the Blue Blood controller shell have the perfect electric blue finish, it’s super shiny, and comes with an improved D-pad design that’s larger and easier to move than the stock 360 controller.
What’s as bright as a plasma grenade stuck to your face? This Halo casemod, that’s what.
This spiffy custom model puts the official Halo Xbox 360 to shame. Not only does it glow (always a plus), but that’s one of the armor emblems from the game.
Any good zombie apocalypse is all about survival, so a game that’s actually named Zombie Apocalypse isn’t likely to be about picking daisies. This week’s downloadable co-op experiences promises gore, guns, and most importantly, zombies. Loads of ’em, and all ripe for the slaughter.
Things are simple here.
I’m not sure if slouching back in a chair playing Modern Warfare 2 in front of a television or computer screen is the sort of activity that requires camouflage, but who am I to argue with the video game peripheral gurus at Mad Catz, who have taken it upon themselves to develop a full line of military chic Modern Warfare 2 accessories.
I’m not kidding when I say “full line” — Mad Catz is sparing no expense to capitalize on Modern Warfare 2’s inevitable success.
There’s a common theme in gaming that seems to revolve around parties–intrepid bands of heroes who end up together on an epic quest to save the world, and maybe enjoy a delicious sandwich or something along the way.
