|This thing is gonna be badass... Another thing I love is the name "XSDECK". While we here at xbox-scene know the XS stands for that it could also stand as an abbreviation of Excess so either way the name sounds cool.|

| I am just jumping in in the middle of this(I havnt read the entire thread yet)|
I think weed need some serious input on legal issues of produceing a Xbox
replacment case. I would hate to see everyones efforts squashed in the end by MS. Even if it all legit you know MS has enough money to drag it out in a court
battle if they wanted to. I am no legal expert, so I couldnt say one way or the other if this would be an issue or not, but deff something that should be looked into upfront.
That said. I am willing to help out with protype parts cutting/machined.
In the end I think the only way this is going to be cost effective to bring to
market is some kind of injection molding. It would be way to costly to machine
each and every case.
Just my 2 cents

| I think a well written survey is in order. get some market research data in here instead of just speculation.|

| Cool design..|
I like it.. but at the same time.. I personally think we save time and money by keeping the cuts SIMPLE. square/rectangles whereever possible.
The double layer for the top X would look sweet lit up.. but I think allowing NR to etch a desired design would be better.

|oh ok, I didn't know you guys were going for really simple designs here. So basically it's just placement that is the design. Since now we're limiting it to a box pretty much . I think it will look a lot cooler if it's not entirely acrylic. Entirely clear cases usually don't look very good. It takes away most of the possibilities for lighting except for the "huge ass light inside the box" effect, and it never looks as clean.|

|also has anyone considered putting the DVD and HDD BELOW the mobo... so the mobo is on the top of the case instead of the bottom |

| ok just due to the space issue . . . etc what if we made one of the dvd drives a plug in for the back or something i mean lets face it who needs both dvd drives all the time|
one will be for burning and the other for playing/reading for the burn. so make the burning one something you plug in. to the back or something.
