You can build an Xbox One right now

If you build it they will come

Because waiting until next year for an Xbox one is quite frankly for chumps. And chumpettes. Back at E3, Microsoft got flak for duping folks into believing that they were playing Xbox One games on the actual console, when it was a similar-specced PC all along. Still consoles rule in my opinion. And if you can’t beat them, why not join them?

One Chinese site is offering just such a hybrid solution, as they’re selling external Xbox One casings. Casings which you could throw some PC parts into, and pretend to have your own Xbox One.

Xbox

It’s not clear yet if these are spare cases off of the assembly lines where the console is being put together, or really well fabricated duplicates, but hey it looks good to me. And here’s something else that will make the critics happy: None of these shells come with Kinect.

You’ll have to ask Miss Nancy Zeng for the price though. I’m not getting involved with a dodgy Chinese deal again. That’s the reason why Geoff has the film and television rights to my life story right now.

  1. Why would you do that to a PC? Torture is banned under the Geneva Convention.

        For a PC case…. It’s so ugly… but guess it could look worse… could look like a PS4 case.

          Interestingly enough, technically this would become a Steam box. Gabe, eat your heart out.

    Even the wife’s PC is more powerful than an xbox one and all she does is spreadsheets & documents.

      I’m assuming the mags are the PC components.

        Nope, the turbo, branches, freeflow, NOS system, and chip would be PC components.

          Nothing makes an Uno go faster, other than gravity as it falls off a cliff.

          I used to work opposite a used car dealer. They had an Uno, that if you judged speed by number of fins & body mods, would be the fastest car in existence.

            Wow I just remembered. My first car was an old 1.3 Ford Escort, developed a hole in the exhaust so took it in to be fixed, guy told me he could give me a new stainless steel free flow exhaust for R100 more than what it would cost to fix – it really did make a big difference lol

            My first car was ’96 Corsa Lite nogal, I popped the original engine (I blame booze and ex gf). Got branches, freeflow, chip, GSI engine and PHAT sound.

            Good grief, I was zef those days 😛
