    All in one entertainment system? Shove a PS3, Wii and 360 in the same machine, and maybe.

    Now THAT I'd like to see. Would need a massive case though... And much better cable management!

    Why not just stick your console inside a case with several fans and call it a day.

    Or if it's open to the air and not enclosed it won't even need the fans.

    I henceforth call this amazing invention: The shelf.

    Don't Lian-Li make a PC style X360 case?

    That looks less like a prototype and more like a half @rsed case mod that an inexperienced 'enthusiast' has glued together after a heavy drinking session.

    I don't think Ben Heckendorn will be quaking in his boots just yet.

    This is one very strange idea... who remeber the MegaPC?

    Aslo, to sell this wouldn't they need to license it from Microsoft?

    MegaPC was a design masterpiece compared to this... but the ideas clever in a funky sort of way.
