Here’s an amazing Xbox 360 that looks like it just crawled its way out of the Everglades. The alligator-themed 360 is covered with a lizard-textured skin, and even has an realistic alligator eyeball in place of its power switch.
Rest assured, no actual alligators were harmed in the making of this console.
A while back, I showed you guys a cool metallic shell for the Xbox 360, but as is the issue with many of these replacement shells, there’s no way to use it with the newer 360 Premium or Elite models which have an HDMI port.
Can’t get enough of the classic arcade games up on Xbox Live? Then you probably know how miserable it can be to play most of the old school arcade games with the 360’s modern controller. I guess that’s why this one-of-a-kind custom 360 arcade controller has me green with envy.
Created by master joystick builder ShaolinDrunkard, it’s just one of several gorgeous custom arcade sticks he’s designed and constructed.
The hand built arcade controller uses serious arcade quality controls from Sanwa and Seimitsu, with dramatic LED backlighting behind each button.
Check out these tiny little clay versions of video game consoles and their controllers. They’re so small that they’ll literally fit in the palm of your hand.
These tiny consoles may look like the work of Dr.
Prepare for a bloody good time. My favorite hack-and-slash game of all time is finally getting its due with a real next-gen update. Ninja Gaiden 2, long in the works from Tomonobu Itagaki and the video game artisans from Team Ninja finally has an official release date.
The latest installment in the Ninja Gaiden series is officially slated for U.S.
While most of you are tuned in to the Superbowl, a little bird whispered in my ear to let me know about the latest portable console creation by modder extraordinaire Ben Heck. I give you the Xbox 360 Elite Laptop.
The portable Xbox 360 features a Halo 3 theme, and is based on the Elite’s internals.
If you’re a Halo fan, at some point you’ve probably wished you could have an actual energy sword to take out your frustrations with. While no such real-world weapon currently exists, here’s the next best thing.
Currently up for auction over on eBay, this life-size replica Halo sword isn’t made from an unknown energy source, but it still looks intimidating.
For a brief moment yesterday, an image appeared over on GameStop showing off this forthcoming add-on for your Rock Band performances. The kit includes everything you need to put on your own Spinal Tap-esque stage show in your garage, except for the 18-inch tall Stonehenge.
According to the box are, Performance Design Product’s Rock Band Stage Kit is an “Interactive Light and Smoke Stage Show” to accompany your Rock Band jam sessions.
Actually, it’s more like a luggable. This custom-modded Xbox 360 has an LCD monitor embedded into its side, making it ever so slightly portable. Why you’d want to play your beautiful high-definition next-gen games on a tiny monitor is a mystery to me, but whatever floats your boat, I say.
Now I’m not exactly how you could cram an LCD monitor inside the Xbox 360 case without everything melting from the intense heat, but I’ll leave the answer to that to the casemodding experts.
Is Microsoft getting ready to announce a new Xbox SKU? The guys over at Stuff.TV are reporting that the company is readying a new top-of-the-line console model called the Xbox 360 Ultimate.
Aimed squarely at Sony’s Playstation 3 high-end hardware features, the Ultimate console is rumored to include built-in HD-DVD playback, Wi-Fi, improved audio circuitry, a 65nm chipset, and a 320GB hard drive so you’ll have plenty of storage space for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox IPTV service and other downloaded content.
When my original 2005 Xbox 360 finally succumbed to the dreaded Red Rings of Death, it ended up going on the scrap heap. This enterprising modder showed a bit more creativity than I could muster by turning his overheating Xbox lemons into a souped-up glass of PC lemonade.
Other than the big red LED backlit cooling fan sticking out of the side of the console, you wouldn’t know it’s a PC unless you turned it around and looked at the back.
Just like a regular Xbox 360, there wasn’t quite enough room to cram the power supply in the box, so it had to sit outside the console too.
With all the stuff crammed under its hood, one can only hope that it won’t be as much of a fire hazard as the cardboard box PC.
Earlier today, a post popped up on the Bungie.net website revealing a special deal for new Xbox 360 buyers who upgrade from an original Xbox. According to the post (which has since been removed for some reason), if you buy an Xbox 360 this holiday season, you’ll be able to grab a free copy of their hit game, Halo 3.
Later in the day, Microsoft’s posted this Buy Xbox 360, Get Halo 3 promotional page, clarifying the offer.
Kotaku is reporting that the upcoming Fall update for the Xbox 360 will include support for downloading classic Xbox titles over Xbox Live.
According to an article in the latest Official Xbox Magazine, 360 owners will be able to download a number of original Xbox titles for 1200 Microsoft points each ($15 USD).
Give your Xbox 360 system a retro-lounge makeover with these animal print faceplates. These snap-on replacements for the standard Xbox 360 front cover don’t just look like their mammalian counterparts, they’re velvety soft to the touch.
Whether you’re going for a jungle theme or fifties kitsch, they’ll definitely get looks when you have your friends over.
Were Bioshock and Halo 3 a little too intense for your delicate sensibilities? Are games like Barbie’s Horse Adventure more your pace? Then have I got a video game console for you!
An artist going by the excellent screen name Kickass-Peanut created this soft, plush Xbox 360 console, which is certain to be unable to play those evil “M”-rated games.
Capcom today revealed a new chapter in the popular Street Fighter franchise, titled Street Fighter IV: A New Beginning.
Not much is known about the new game, except that the just released teaser trailer features some really beautiful 3D pen-and-ink style graphics, reminiscent of Okami.
It’s not known whether the graphical style will make it to the game, but I sure hope they do.
