This Xbox 360 Needs More Bling

Blinged Xbox 360

Anybody with a semi-functional brain knows that when you want to run a successful public relations campaign, your best bet is rolling your product around in a big ass pile of small, shiny stones. Well, at least Microsoft knows this because they recently commissioned CrystalRoc to deck out an Xbox 360 with more than 11,520 individual Swarovski crystals. Perhaps I’m not looking at the smaller details close enough but that particular model looks suspiciously like an Arcade unit. Because covering the cheapest version of your console in expensive, luxury gems makes perfect fucking sense. Anyways, needs more bling.

    At least this is not glittered out like the Twilight cover. I can see that he can put a huge diamond on the power button.

  6. That thing is as pointless as it is hideous.

    I thought that was metal mesh at first. And did they actually leave the tag on the tray?

      That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out! I can’t find a larger version of this image though unfortunately.

      My guess would be to show it has never been used or something… mint condition? lol

    You’re right, that looks like an arcade, no silver details. WTF
    UNLESS to put the diamonds in they had to make a whole new case and thought the silver would just look bad next to the diamonds… even though I don’t think anything can look too much worse

    • xLAS3RP01NT3Rx says:

      You don’t see any silver details?!
      You’ve got to be kidding me!

      I kid, I kid :P.

    Wha’ts wrong with arcade?

    • Justifiedcandy says:

      it’s more liable to get the red ring of death because the cooling system of those units are not strong enough to keep your xbox nice and frosty.

      • Plus it’s cheaper, and if you’re gonna do this to your xbox, you might as well go all the way and use like, an elite or something.

    Sequins………………..they burn my eyes.

    No matter how shiny it is, it doesn’t look like it can save your games.

    • SevOverkill says:

      it’s got a MU in it you know…but yeah why not make a Pro look good?
