First, I doubt this will be the design. Remember the metal shield in your Xbox? I believe there is a government requirement to do this type of shielding, a Faraday (misspelled) cage of sorts.

My real complaint about this and PS3 is that neither team seems to value the idea of a console that could fit where a DVD player or VCR goes in an entertainment center. Consoles need a home too. Who wants everything organized except their consoles? This might bug XBMC too.

Wrong section, but whatever. You realize almost all entertainment centers have a top right? Then set it on the damn top.

It is a 3d render from someone for fun.

It will be in no way like the final design.

I suggest you goand spend 30 bux on a dremel tool and just cut it like everyone else does. If you want a quality mod, you need quality tools.

simple as that.

And if everyone (and they do, Nintendo, Sony, etc.) thought like that, it would be kinda crappy.

nah, I think there's 4, lol. They did say it'll be a bout 4x more powerful than the original Xbox, therefore they cut a corner and just stuck 4 motherboards from the original xboxes in there, lol. If that's the case I have 1 and a half xbox 2's, hehe

I think it's pretty obvious that's not gonna be the actual design, lol, if it was you could always gut it and put your hamster in it, lol.

The image was posted on the frontpage of xb-s as a news item. linkage
