I guess some will be able to mod there 360 on day one but I have to wonder how those guys got there hands on those. And I kind of like that black over the toilet white and its ironic but that silver on the third one is the only time I have seen the 360 actually look like the official pics.

It could look like a pile of dog crap, but if the games are great I'll get one.

I see and can play on such Xbox360 dev kits about every day at work office.
Overall, the casing seems a tiny bit less sturdy than Xbox 1's.

When our programmers call it a day, they're obliged to not forget to switch off power to the Xbox360 dev kit becuz these are not yet surge protected like final retail consoles ; yes, they're a bit prone to catch fire when short circuited. :eek:

No, the first revisions of xbox had a problem where the receptacle for the power cable was attached using a weak solder mount, and repeated insertions and removals can cause it to come loose, which may result a short which will fry the xbox (microsoft to this day denies it, their fix isn't really a fix at all, but rather an added circuit breaker that trips if a short occurs, which still leaves your xbox dead, it just prevents a fire in this case.)

These ones just sound like the power supplies wont protect the hardware very well if theres a spike. (caused by e.g. your AC turning off, causing a sudden increase in available power to the unit) Things like electric motors and light bulbs can handle this fine, but integrated circuits will break rather easily if not protected against it.
