Stuffing a PS3 and an Xbox 360 Into a PC Case 96

An anonymous reader writes "A man identifying himself as 'Timofiend' has posted a detailed walkthrough of how he built an impressive case mod that fits both a PlayStation 3 and an Xbox 360 into a mid-tower computer case. He used one of the newer Slim 360 models hooked up to an ATX power supply, and one of the bulkier old PS3 units, with its standard power supply as well. After arranging the internal boards, persuading the two optical drives to fit and loading up on fans to prevent overheating, he wound up with a very cool (and functional!) blend of gaming platforms."

    I don't understand these sorts of replies. You may think it's a waste of time, but this guy clearly enjoys fiddling around with electronics, using his hands to craft something unique and using his head to make sure everything works out. Some people like to do all their home-improvement themselves, designing and building their own bathroom or kitchen. Some people like gardening. Some people like to get greasy with the inner bits of cars, Some people spend hours on end playing video games. Why does someone's hobby suddenly need to have a point or be validated against some kind of level of usefulness when it involves computer parts, electronics and little LED lights?

    I personally think this is a bit lame. I think the idea is pretty cool (and I don't blame the guy for doing it, do what you love to do!) but the execution seemed to fall short. If it required one power supply and at least had some sort of switch for the video, it would have been a lot cooler. But fitting 2 power supplies and requiring 2 monitors (or to manually switch when switching systems) is kind of lame.
