Wow you must have an active imagination if you acctually think the ps3 and the GF grill has any likeness.

Maybe the new GGR62 looks like the ps3 though but the original white one acctually more resembles the x360 then the ps3. And the 10th anniversary editions is almost spot on what the 360 looks like.

you actually looked up grill pics to make comparisons?

And if you didnt, why/how do you know what they look like, by model # no less?

I had to look it up as well. The only foreman grill I've used the original, which looks nothing like the PS3 so I didn't see the comparison. I wanted to see what new grills looked like and if the comparison was well founded.

Hmmm, how does a 360 resemble a blender lol, the PS3 actually looks like a george foreman grill, thus why i assume hes making a grill. rofl

I'm guessing based on the noise, but a better idea might be the 360 hair dryer, dust buster, leaf blower, etc.

Yeh ive seen the grill that looks a bit like the 360. Ive been shopping around for grills, andit looks like no matter what grill i get, its gunna have to be chopped up a bit to fit in the PS3 case. Does anyone know whats underneath the grilling surface? Im guessing there will be some kind of heating element or something.

Still looking for someone to get me a PS3 at launch/shortly after launch! (As i said before ill pay that person for the PS3, of course jester.gif ) Only like 17 or so days till the PS3 is launched!

I've never opened one up but I would imagine it heats the grilling surface using nichrome wire, as most electric heating devices do.

In that case it wont take up much space at all, but you'll definitly want to shield the plastic parts of the case with metal to keep them from melting.

I may be wrong but I think that consoles use thermo setting plastics that don't melt. The same kind that saucepan handles are made from so they dont melt. But ofcourse, shield it just to be sure.

Sweet project aswell. I think the PS3 actually looks more like some models of barbecues than a George Foreman, but its still a grill. happy.gif

you're probably right about the plastic but you'd better safe then sorry.

Also you're definitly right about the PS3 looking more like a traditional grill then a George Forman grill.

it has to do with the rounded barrel shape of the PS3

the split across the center just makes the top half look like it should lift up like a grill

So the PS3's case is going to be made out of plastic? Ive heard different things from different people as to weather the case will be made out of metal or plastic. But yeah, ive given some thought as to what I could do to prevent the plastic from melting, if the case was made of plastic.


So if i do end up having to cut up the grilling surface a bit, i can just bend the nichrome wire or something so i dont cut it aswell. I imagine the wire would be somehow attached to the bottom of the grill surface, not actually going through the grill surface, if that makes sense.
