Louis Vuitton Faceplate: the Real Xbox 360 Elite

Louis Vuitton Faceplate: the Real Xbox 360 Elite
When I think of Louis Vuitton, I usually think of primping poseurs with puny purse-size pekingese – not potty-mouthed pre-pubescents playing PGR, Portal and Prince of Persia. But the minute I laid eyes on this Xbox 360 window-dressing I had to give it a second thought. Our pals over at Hawty McBloggy spotted this over-the-top Air Effex custom airbrushed Louis Vuitton-inspired Xbox 360 faceplate over on eBay.

Where the Hell is Matt?: Team Fortress 2 Edition

Where the Hell is Matt?: Team Fortress 2 Edition
You’ve probably seen or at least heard of Matt Harding, a videogame developer who danced his way to internet fame. His videos remind us that we live in a beautiful world filled with beautiful people, but above all his videos remind us that dancing is a talent that few people are privileged to have. Matt is not one of them.

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360
So maybe you like to play the latest and greatest (arcade) games but you don’t necessarily like the latest and greatest controllers. The answer, clearly, is to build a hybrid monster of controllers to suit your specifications.

Johnny Platform’s Caffeinated Biscuit Romp [Xbox 360]

Johnny Platform’s Caffeinated Biscuit Romp [Xbox 360]
Since the New Xbox Experience launched in late November of last year, the Xbox Live Community Games service has been building up a selection of indie titles, though none is quite so weirdly named as Craig Forrester’s Johnny Platform’s Biscuit Romp. The spindly-fingered titular hero faces 55 levels of puzzle-filled platforming through a sugary land filled with hazards, but don’t worry–there’s plenty of coffee along his path.

Xbox 360 Room has Me Slightly Green With Envy

Xbox 360 Room has Me Slightly Green With Envy
When I get my own house, I’d like to have a couple of game rooms in it. A game room with a projector for playing PES or Rock Band or NBA 2k15, and another smaller game room for playing RPGs.

Rrod on the Road: Xbox 360 Car

Rrod on the Road: Xbox 360 Car
Remember the achievement unlocked: left the house shirt? Someone has found a cheat for that achievement: he or she stuffed 2 Xbox 360s, 2 projectors and 2 flat screen monitors inside a Suzuki. One of the two 360s appears to be embedded into the car’s dash.Why?

Domo-Kun Mod Makes a Toothy 360

Domo-Kun Mod Makes a Toothy 360
I’m happy to report that Domo-kun is adorable anywhere… even on the hulking side of an Xbox 360. In fact, the strange creature himself brings a beautiful color scheme to the console, and the result is a chocolaty confection of cuteness that suits the 360 very well. DeviantARTist Ricepuppet slicked up this Xbox 360, he says, as a gift for his sister-in-law.

Xbox 360 and PS3 Get 8-Bit Doppelgängers

Xbox 360 and PS3 Get 8-Bit Doppelgängers
Why the heck would you drop $200 to $400 on a brand new console when you could get the same thing for a fraction of the price? Oh yeah, I neglected to mention that these alternate universe clones of the Xbox 360 and PS3 are crappy knock-offs from China – and that they only play 8-bit games. These cheap-o fakes come courtesy of the shady sounding Rodisson Technologies Company, who only ask that you place a minimum wholesale order of 10,000 pieces if you want to get your hands on one of these 8-bit versions of popular modern-day gaming systems.

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again
Real fans don’t buy action figures, whether or not they’re commercially available. Buying things is for wimps. No, the real fan breaks out the paint, dismembers currently-existing figures, and then the real fan makes their own action figures, like Chris Hooton did for the horror game Dead Space. Dead Space borrows heavily from other material–most notably, science fiction classic Solaris–so it’s only fitting that Hooton’s custom figure borrowed heavily from another figure.

Mirror’S Edge Gets Flattened Into 2-D

Mirror’S Edge Gets Flattened Into 2-D
It looks like the new hit 3-D action platform video game Mirror’s Edge has just gotten a makeover as a 2-D Flash mini-game you can play right in you web browser. The guys over at Borne Games have created this flattened version of the game (in partnership with EA), and it’s kind of reminiscent of classic Prince of Persia type of game when squished into just 2 dimensions.

Xcm Crystal Makes Xbox 360 Controller Clear and Bright

Xcm Crystal Makes Xbox 360 Controller Clear and Bright
The guys over at XCM are at it once more with another cool mod you can buy to make your Xbox 360 just that much better. The new XCM Crystal Controller Kit not only redresses your 360 controller in a spiffy clear skin, but it also adds a brand new oversize D-pad that’s designed to prevent you from mistakenly pressing it in the wrong direction. I can speak from experience when I say there’s nothing worse than accidentally selecting that plasma rifle when you meant to select the rocket launcher. Of course, the best part of the Crystal Controller is that it comes pre-wired with a gorgeous array of nine colorful LEDs which illuminate the A/B/X/Y, back, start, dashboard and shoulder buttons. You can get your grubby little paws on the complete Crystal Controller kit over on RenChi for $29.90.

The Mac Os-X-Box 360 [Casemod]

The Mac Os-X-Box 360 [Casemod]
In a surprise announcement, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox 360 will now be capable of running Mac OS X. Now that I’ve got your attention, what we’ve really got here is an Xbox 360 that’s been gutted and replaced with the brains of a Macintosh. Under the hood of this Xbox 360 case is the motherboard from an old Apple PowerBook G4.

Gears of War Xbox 360 Casemod Kicks Ass

Gears of War Xbox 360 Casemod Kicks Ass
Here’s a dark and disturbing Gears of War Xbox 360 casemod that would make Cliffy B. himself proud. Modder DFW Monkie, the same guy who brought us this creepy alligator Xbox 360, has outdone himself this time with his new Gears 360. The case features an intricate sculptural Gears of War logo, complete with a skull and gear that glows in an ominous red light up when the console is on. He built this custom case using lots and lots of layers of Bondo, and painstakingly hand sculpting it before coating it in a deep black paint job to make it look nearly as imposing as the first time you ever ran into a Berserker. When the Red Rings of Death fire up on this console, it’s actually a good thing.

Xbox 360 Pro 60gb Price and Release Date Announced

Xbox 360 Pro 60gb Price and Release Date Announced
Microsoft today confirmed that it is preparing to release a new Xbox 360 model, the Xbox 360 Pro. The console will hit U.S. and Canadian stores in early August, and will be priced at $349. The new model triples the storage from the current Xbox 360 Premium to a much more usable 60GB, offering plenty of space for downloads from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Microsoft says it will discontinue the current 20GB 360 Premium, and has immediately dropped its price to $299 to make way for the new model.

Hori Real Arcade Pro Ex: Serious Control for Xbox 360

Hori Real Arcade Pro Ex: Serious Control for Xbox 360
The Xbox 360’s standard controller has an excellent reputation, but sometimes you just want the heft and precision of a real arcade joystick. So if you’re looking for a really substantial controller for your 360, Japan’s Hori is about to bring the answer to your prayers. The new Hori Real Arcade Pro EX is one serious stick, complete with eight individual oversize action buttons and a ball-grip joystick that’s as good as anything you’d find in an arcade.

Xbox 360 Glows in the Dark Thanks to Xcm

Xbox 360 Glows in the Dark Thanks to Xcm
Who says your Xbox 360 has to overheat and catch fire in order to glow? This new replacement shell from XCM lets your 360 glow green when the lights go down. The case replaces the entire exterior of your 360 to produce an out-of-this-world green glow when placed in a darkened room.
