My boyfriend's xbox recently crapped out on him. He tried fixing it and it didn't seem to want to be fixed, so it has officially been given up on. He's quite sad. But, on the bright side, he's given me permission to find something to do with it!

We'd like to keep the case in tact (for the most part) and I'd really like if I could find some way to make it into some sort of decoration for his bedroom. But I can't think of anything  Huh

So, does anyone have any ideas? Even the vaguest of suggestions will help. I just need something to go on!

Thanks everybody!  Grin

It must be the season for this as I have the same with my hubbys. I have got as far as working out that the front pops off and thats it.... I was pondering gutting the insides since they dont work reattaching the front on some kind of hinge and then maybe decorating it with all his game hero's for some kind of storage like his game magazines or for his xbox extras like his head set and controllers... i'm not sure how doable gutting the insides are without damaging the case but its my weekend project so I'll let you know

That sounds like a good idea. Though I do know it's supposed to be quite difficult to separate the insides from the bottom part. But since I can't think of much else to do with it, I'll probably try it, too. I guess even if the bottom ends up getting wrecked, it'd probably be doable to just make a new bottom out of something else.

Good luck with it! Let me know how it works out for you.

-Magazine/phone book organizer: Remove the guts & the front face panel
-A tidy way to store your laser&inkjet paper/monitor stand: remove same as above
-Hot glue the panels to a binder cover - use the binder to organize
          your game cheat codes (assuming you're getting another xbox)
- A small candy dish - using a metal mixing bowl as a mold (i've done this with an
old vinyl record - not an xbox, so it may or may not work) sit the plastic piece
inside the bowl and set the bowl and all into the oven on low. it should melt enough
to take the shape of the bowl. some plastics give off a smell - ventilate well!
-I'm kinda curious what's inside - I've seen jewellery made from circuit boards &
memory chips

whatever you do - have fun!
