Distressed-Look 360 Up For Sale On EBay

A British gamer has listed on eBay his red-ringed Xbox 360. And it's in even worse shape than that suggests.

Plainly and repeatedly listed as a "faulty Xbox 360" - and that picture isn't deceptive advertising - UK eBayer jonnyandco05's bricked 360 comes to you "modified for better ventilation, with a turbo inlet on the side." Also, "the disk drive has been repositioned for optimal performance at 37 degrees." No doubt by a massive blow to the case.

The seller says the console ringed and he tried to fix it, but his skills weren't up to it. "Sadly, it does have a bit of fire damage and rage damage." But just a bit.

Pros: Has "authentic Microsoft sticker."

Cons: "Some parts are a bit missing, like the on button." I'm sure that's what's preventing it from starting up.

Bidding started at 1 pence, At time of publication, it was up to £6.01. "Please note if you buy this it is sold as faulty, in quite a faulty way," he writes. "But faulty is the new fashion now days so you may become super trendy. no returns, no refunds, no job."

Kotaku AU Note: If you stand it on its end, does that make it a "faulty tower"?

    david.. you're now my new hero.. that was so lame that it brought a tear to my eye

    i need a epipen to the eye after reading that lamo-super lamo comment

    Rip the guts out of it, mount PC components and you've got one uniquely modded box.

    I wonder how much he's offering for it? This would be an extremely interesting case mod! I would rip out the insides, and replace them with working parts - while leaving the outside the way it is, and maybe add a bit of a metal design to it. Chuck a few lighting and cooling mods in as well, and you have an awesome (cheap) case mod!
