Xbox 360 gets the shaft. Here is the vault, but not as a game bundle.

That is a pretty nice case, but its such an awesome deal! I think Id get it and sell the vault on ebay for like 50 bucks. To bad we cant get it for the 360 though.

It's cool looking, but I don't think that either the PS3 or the Xbox 360 were designed to be placed in a shell. I can see this leading to overheating issues with both consoles.

It DOES say it doesn't void the warranty. I find that really hard to believe, though. Those intercooler things voided the warranty, and this seems like just as bad of an idea.

It looks so good though :eek:

The Gears vault was awesome too.

No disagreement from me on that. I wish they would just sell an Xbox that looked like that, instead of having to put your 360 in a coffin to make it look like that. I'm not one for custom units though, because I like my warranty and my factory "reliability".

The vault doesn't actually have any bearing on the system itself whereas the Intercooler was plugged in to the system. The power supply for the Xbox 360 was designed to run the Xbox 360 console, not the console plus and Intercooler.

Huh, so where does the ventilation flow through? My Xbox 360 is old, from 2008, and it's like a heater! LOL! It really comes in handy in the winter! Anyway, the vault looks cool, but it's not that amazing. I wouldn't want it covering my Xbox 360/PlayStation 3.

I have a new slim that doesn't even get remotely warm, even after running for a few hours. My old fatty on the other hand... that thing was a fire hazard.

Exactly. I still have my original Xbox 360 from launch, works perfectly fine. If I turn them on side by side, the old one is SUPER loud and gets hot very quickly.

I would compare them, but I don't have either of my original 2 consoles. I trade mine in as the newer consoles release. I currently have a MW2 Limited Edition console and a new slim console. Both of them run quiet and cool as a champ.
