It's also helpful that he has his XBox crammed in there at the bottom.

First the XBOX should be on a shelf by it self!!!!
Second the stench that the PS2 gives off when its on, got into its hardware!!!
Third the XBOX needs more room so the air can circulate!!!!!!!!!!!!

D a m n....how would anyone expect that to work with a huge cobweb of wires and junk....Man, I would be surprised if anything works! And, the entertainment stand is sitting all of it's weight on, what looks like, the main power wire. This is a serious fire hazard :D

i think it is fake, not only does it appear that the xbox isnt on (not positive, but TV dont look like it either, and when i get really close to the text you can see an outline where they did the text and added a type of noise filter or something, i dont believe it, at all!

I have seen this exact same photo on another forum and this wasn't an Xbox one, but a multi format one.

We came to the conslusion. Xbox, Gamecueb and PS fans alike that the Xbox isn't switched on and that the text has been imposed on the TV.

Also, someone found out that this isn't even the message that appears when the Xbox is broke and I noticed that the msg in this picture displays the msg in a number of different languages. This was reported to be an American Xbox which doesn't support other regions TVs and therefore there is no need to display this msg in all these other languages.
I think someone had to correct the foriegn translations too....

yes i agree it is definatley a fake. i used photoshop and checked it out. the xbox isnt on. it would have a red light on if it did that... it would stand out from the black. and you can definatley see the outline around the text. and maximus knows how i love to check out things and sniff out liars. i wsh i knew how to post the blown up pic showing these things..... but take my word you can tell its a fake

for fun i ran a line into my language translator. i used the 3rd message from the top. if you go spanish to english (wich i am pretty sure it is) you get......

the console xbox requires asistinola tecnica you use me al service gives sporte al clierio gives the xbox

and if it was italian (only thing close to looking like spanish) it gives you......

the consola xbox requiere asistinola technical usame to the servicio from shopping bags to the clierio from the xbox

that one made me laugh.....what the hell?? you need some technical assistance from shopping bags...hahahaha

i dont know how to type jap on my comp so i cant get that one... but those 2 show that is messages dont make sense

ROFL Smack that last line...

why should that last line be smacked? we call british people 'brits', and americans are often reffered to as 'yanks'. what about russians being called 'rooskies'. it seems to me that you are being a little to sensitive about an abbrieviation.
