The Gears of War 2 custom has been the only one I've seen so far that I halfway liked. Usually though, they look like crap.

I'm not really into these custom consoles. They seem too much like slapping advertisements on your console. I don't mind custom colors, but logos, words, etc. will just end up looking cheesy.

Case in point. Do you really want this in your entertainment center when people come over?



And I'm a huge Simpsons fan.

I think it would really cool for a couple months and then it would get old as the movie comes out on video.

I don't know. Some of the rare ones can be worth quite a lot on ebay. Take the gears one for example. I think they are only making 1,000 or less of them.

nothing is rare, all it is is a silk screen and anyone can do a custom paint job.

I do once in a while full 360 paintjobs, however i mostly do faceplates, becasue not everyone wants to take apart their console and have it painted up. I try and find 360 shells i buy a few.

as far as pricing yeah you can expect to pay north of 400 for these so called limited systems.
