Good idea to have the console into the PC... this reduce the space required near the TV :)
but what a price!!!!

is there any HDMI switch integrated? to switch from the XBox to the PC?

The cheapest one is $7,669? No thanks, I will let the rich boys buy this. I'm happy with my mainstream PC, which has only cost me $1,600 with upgrades. For console gaming, I've got a 360 Elite.

Pass, I think I can walk my ass over to the consoles in my living room if I need a break from the PC which has better specs at half the price.

"As much as we love our PC gaming rigs, we know that to get the most variety of good gaming these days, you're going to need a console."
Shameful to utter such words.

I bet no one buys that.
Seriously, why would they put that high proce tag on it?
PC components cost maybe 3-4k(the cheapest version) and 360 costs $300 and something.

So the price of putting them together is $3000+

Idea is good, but what are they smoking!?

In order to nearly match the functionality of this product you would need 1 decent PC, 1 XBOX 360, and some duct tape.

Absolute ripoff.
I could build a PC that would walk right by that for less then half the price. And the name is crap. Real 360's are slow...why name it after that.

Shameful, but it's true. The PC has gotten the shaft for years. Starcraft 2 sold really well, so I'm hoping more developers will make good PC games.

Actually, a pair of the CPUs will set you back 3500+, the motherboard 600, the memory another 1500 depending on what they use, the hard drives another 1000* depending on what they use, the waterblocks another 500 or so, the grahpics cards another 2500+, plus the case and customizing. So I think cost-wise for just the parts will be around 10,000k+ if you were building yourself. They do that plus overclock it for you. Sure, for the person who knows how to do this they can save maybe 5k but all in all it is not what a lot of these comments make it out to be (for those that are saying it's about 3k in components!)
 
Cool looking case. I think its to high a price as I'm seeing a #2000 PC with a $300 Xbox. This company should sale the case then offer as add on the liquid cooling and mod kit for your Xbox.

For the price, I would have hoped for some effort on behalf of the case designers. It looks like they just grabbed some sheets of Perspex, cut slits in them and stuck them together.

At least it has free shipping.

Aren't most games that are on the xbox also on PC. I don't see such a nice for this.

You can do like I did and hook your PC to your TV, and purchase a wireless xbox 360 controller.

Anyone else think this might be a waste of resources?

Lets see if it has a xbox 360 built in then odds are it will be hooked up to a HDTV which means a 1080p top resolution. You certainly dont need quad or dual 480's to play at 1080p resolution by any means. In fact you could get away with somthing like a 460 or 5830.

Just making the point of why put a xbox 360 in a rig so powerful?

They can't go wrong, it's not like they invested alot of money in it, they probably only had to redesign a case.

So if it ain't selling, no big deal.
