Xbox 360 'eaten' by alligator
Beast of a box
People have covered themselves and their possessions in animal skins since the dawn of time, but one gamer has taken things to another level by crafting an alligator-themed Xbox 360.
Alligator Xbox 360: swamp thing?
Gamer dfw monkie - somehow we’re guessing that’s not his real name - has published pictures of his creation detailing how he transformed the beige box into an alligator.
Monkie describes himself as a graphic artist from Dallas who's inspired by Salvador Dali and other surrealists.
Who you lookin' at?
The modder used a putty material to mould the alligator skin design over the console’s body and faceplate. He then covered the putty over with “paint and clear-coat” to give the ‘skin’ that “glossy wet look”.
The console’s power switch, around which the infamous Red Ring of Death is known to appear, has even been covered over with a fake alligator’s eye.
Hopefully game and film discs won’t be eaten by razor sharp teeth when you open the tray though…
It seems the tables turned upon you there! Nice find MrM!
Mark, do you not realise that you yourself are the one who bought such a horribly overpriced console, with mostly unnecessary technology and the worst lineup of games in the history of videogaming?
@Mark - Again
Oh you are quite the boffin aren't you! Unfortunately Wikipedia seems to disagree with you:
Hear hear is an expression that originated as hear ye, or hear him, usually repeated. This imperative was used to call attention to a speaker's words, and naturally developed the sense of a broad expression of favour. This is how it is still used today, although one can always vary one's tone to express different sentiments; the Oxford English Dictionary noted around the turn of the century that the phrase is now the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons, and expresses, according to intonation, admiration, acquiescence, indignation, derision, etc. It is often incorrectly spelled "here here".
Not that I am being pedantic!
I have to ask..
DO Xbox owners actually have any education AT ALL?
First we have an AC using "Queue" instead of "Cue", and now we have "Hear Hear" instead of "Here Here".
Now I always figured Xbox owners must be slightly wrong in the head, for buying such a horribly overpriced console with such last-gen unreliable tech, but it seems we now have proof of this..
YAWN YAWN AND DOUBLE YAWN!!!
You don't give up do you?
Mark, prove your comments, stop throwing out Sony fanboy crap.
You are a complete and total Tool!
Can i have a "Hear Hear"?
