I think I'll have to convert my xbox gaming rig into a 360 game station. I'll just to have to make a new dash (ugh!) unless they will be making an adaptor so you can plug in xbox stuff into the 360. I can have them both hooked up @ the same time in this cab but right now the wheel will only work for xbox. its very immersive. 5.1 DD, 32" vga dell destination comp monitor. xbox looks better on this than on my toshiba 32'widescreen HD but I am not sure if the 360 will look better on the computer monitor (800x600 max) or the hdtv (1080p max)

i made it myself. took a while but went quite smoothly. hardest part was the dash. 5.1 dd surround. 2 in dash. center above screen, rears behind seat @ ear level and sub under seat. still not done. need diamond plate on floor, brake lights on back that will light when you break, run communicator extension cable thru base and up behind seat, but most importantly, some kind of ool grafx on outside sides. thanks for all the props! already have the 360 hooked up in it but wheel if for xbox. cordless controller 4 now.
ps. boy am i tired! been up for 36+ hrs. but I got me one! xbox360! :cheers:

between the cig lighter (works off a 12v power supply that also powers fans (down by pedals)) and the wheel, there is a key switch. turn the key, out comes the xbox disk tray (loated above the ashtry on right side of dash). cool! the dash guages came out of a '02 dodge truck and the seat from a 90 sumthin honda. dash lights up from behind a cool blue. blue led fans to match. even has a working dome light on lid.

Damn, bob..that's impressive....I like how you incorporated 5.1 in that bad boy, too!

That is a remarkably bad ass idea, now if you could add to it so more people could get in there it would be perfect, I would still take a nice comfy couch over it but it looks cool.

That's bad, you should produce and sell a few of those bad boys. I bet you could make a pretty good profit, and many gamers VERY happy. Xbox related graphix on the sides, would be sweet man.
