Did you miss GamesBeat Summit 2021? Watch on-demand here!

Not only is this crazy mode stylish, it actually still works, too [vis Technabob]:


The funny thing about this casemod is, the console not only runs perfectly, it actually runs about 10 degrees cooler than your average Xbox. Perhaps this is a solution for the Xbox 360 and its pesky little overheating problem. Any Bitmob readers out there care to experiment?
