OK, Me and a friend decided the other day, when the PS3 comes out in america, were going to import a PS3 case (somehow) and build the PS3 grill!

For those who dont know what im talking about, look here

The main reason for this is there are a lot of sony fanboys at my school, and I really wanna piss them off by doing this. Me and my freind are planning to cook some steak or something in my software devlopment class. The look on the fanboys faces will be priceless! Plus, if I am the first to build the PS3 grill think of the fame and fortune (ummm well id like to think so, anyway lol) And, I already have the perfect george foreman grill to put in there.

Im curious to see what everyone thinks about this. Is it a crap/stupid/old/good/funny idea?

Id also like to know if there are heaps of other people planning to do this.

IMO... sounds like a silly idea and a wasdte of money. Besides... getting it to look as good as a fake photochop... would be ridiculously difficult.

But.... to each his own...

Oh yeah and I think I forgot to mention that its just a PS3 case with a george forman grill in it. And using the dimensions of the PS3 the grill will fit nicley in it....(hopefully)

DO IT smile.gif

Cook up a tasty steak for me while you're at it.

I think if you started a website like "therealPS3grill.com" you could easily start taking donations to pay for it...

Nothing says you couldn't put the PS3 guts in another case, or just sell the guts (I'm sure you could make your money back that way).

Also being that you'll be cracking it open you'll probably be one of the first to provide opening instructions for case modders as well as an early glimpse at the PS3s innards which is beneficial to everyone. cool.gif

I'm moving this to the PS3 forums because this is really a PS3 mod/could lead to PS3 info after release.

lol, good luck with it. Set it in between a 1Ghz Thunderchicken and 3.4Ghz Preshott. You can cook eggs and thin strips of beef on the processors while cooking the big stuff in the PS3.

You should set up a website and take donations. Then you could destroy the innards, make the grill and have pictures of opening up the console. Everbody wins! I would donate to that

Kool thanks for all the feedback you guys.

Again, cause i live in Australia ill have to either import just a case or the whole console, since gay sony decided not to release the PS3 here until March next year. Heh perhaps with the innards I could put a steak on the heatsink and see how long it takes to cook lol

Im interested in this idea of setting up a site and getting donations for it. Could anyone help me out with this?

And yeh after I make it ill probly sell it on ebay or something. Im getting so excited about this If it all works as im hoping, itll be awesome!

EDIT: BTW if youd like to help me set up a site about this, PM me or something. And also, it seems like if im gunna build it, ill stuff like the cuts done professionally, instead of my crappy sutting lol

OK well some people have PM'd me with advice. Thanks guys! So there is a great chance of a site going up soon.

Twistedsymphony, the name shall be therealps3grill.com if this site goes ahead.

The other thing is, since I have to import either a whole system or just a case, I need to find a way of getting someone (Preferrably a trusted X-S trader) to get me one as soon as the come out and send it over here (I will pay that person via PAYPAL, not money order thanks to the scamming bastard who ripped me off $500)

Just to keep the donation thing Legit...

don't link to the paypal donation piece directly from XS and don't ask for donations directly either.

Keep it something like "Help out with The Real PS3 Grill Project" linking to your site. because "Help" could be ideas, securing a PS3, etc in addition to donations

you could also encourage people to place links to the website in their sigs to build awareness but don't create any additional topics about it.

That's just to keep this within the XS rules. smile.gif
