Modder combines Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in one PC tower

To be honest, we’re a little surprised it’s taken this long to see someone combine Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3 into one case — but it’s finally happened.

Reddit user timofiend has posted a gallery of photos from his game-modding project that put the guts of the two consoles into a standard PC tower. Thus far, he’s reported no problems on the software or hardware front, though there’s a chance that temperature might be an issue for anyone looking to replicate his results.

It’s also worth noting that he used the large, 80-gigabyte model of PS3 instead of the slim version, which would have allowed for better heat-reduction strategies.

“Spent the last month or so working on this, has a new xbox 360 slim inside, and an 80gig PS3 (normal one not the slim, as I couldnt afford to buy two new consoles for this project I just used mine),” he reported.

According to the post, he’s now working on some documentation to offer anyone else interested in doing the same with their consoles.
