i still think face plate defo, i dont think it defeats the purpose cause xs aint just about modding the appearence of your 360, its about other kind of mods, and homebrew.
my old xbox, i aint really modded the case at all, not ever gonna paint it, (but its one of them limited green ones so why would i) just chucked a load of cathodes in it
a lot of people do mods but i think theres also a lot of people here that only have a modchip, nothing else, i for one aint doin nothing to my 360 till a modchip comes out, they seem kinda fragile, i dont wanna void the waranty and have to pay £210 for a replacement. when i do i think il get me a transparent case, or do my own window, but face plate all the way!! will be a top seller! brand your 360 with a name your proud of!! ....so when can we expect these faceplates? i want one now!
