Congrats! You Win An Xbox 360 With A Messed Up Slot

Know who won that Fable II signed Xbox 360 contest? Some guy named NeoxDonut. He was thrilled to get the Peter Molyneux autographed console. That is, until he tried plugging it in.

The customised console is wrapped in a first generation casing. The innards seem new, but the shell is not. Below is a picture of the A/V slot for a first generation Xbox 360.

Compare this with the HDMI-equipped A/V slot of the Xbox 360 Elite.

Now look at this Frankenconsole mess.

The A/V and HDMI slots are shoehorned into a casing designed for only an A/V Slot. Meaning? It's not possible to plug the A/V cable in and difficult to even get the HDMI cable in there. Last we checked, being able to plug your console in is kind of important.

Thanks Toast for the tip!


    Do that man a favor and edit out the 360's serial number as he did a piss poor job! XD

    Peter Molypukes is giving us a choice. Do we be good and say nothing? or should we smash the case with a hammer and hot glue it to the tv screen? The answer will reveal what fable 3's ending will be..

    lol maybe there something inside that he wants you to find by smashing it open, thus the connection problem :P

    I don't see why the idiots didn't just custom-paint a new-revision Elite instead of a hackjob like this.

    What a shitty prize, I feel sorry for the guy who won it.

    Looks like Peter Molyneux can't put out ANYTHING that works the way it's supposed to. Evidently his hardware doesn't get tested any better than his software. But at least they could patch Fable II...

    Oh, Microsoft ... :/
