Cool, is that really an xbox? Looks like it’s a turn table to me..
awesome.. i went to the atari site and couldn’t find anything out about it yet, so i signed up for their newsletter. hopefully they tell us something soon. id love to have this.
Portable turn-table laptop would be a good idea too.
That Xbox is wayyyy too fresh! Killer project Ben. Hope I can win it.
wheres the xbox360 controller converted into a 2600 joystick/paddle?
Loved it. So is the Odyssey game system next (still my favorite game controller)? Funny thing was I noticed the tornado warning system test in the background in one of the scenes.
Is there a metal that you can use on the older model xbox’s to make a case that is heat
Any link to the contest yet?
By the way, EPIC WIN
Wow. It even has those incredibly ugly wood paneling on the sides.
I’d rather have a page with a bunch of pictures than videos which take forever to download.
It was part of the fifth generation of video game consoles competing against the Sega Saturn and the Nintendo 64. By March 31, 2005, the PlayStation and PSone had shipped a combined total of 102.49 million units, becoming the first video game console to sell 100 million units.
Oh my goodness. It’s a good thing that those aren’t being mass-produced. The will to keep myself from buying one would be very weak against the Atari 2600 design
