You’re a long-time PC gamer with a growing attraction to modern console platforms, but you don’t want fellow PC purists to know you’re yearning for alone time with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. What to do?

Well, what better way to covertly straddle computer and console gaming than to own a specially modified PC chassis that secretly houses the internals of Microsoft’s and Sony’s gaming units?

Step forward console modder ‘Timofiend’ who has managed to cram an olde 80GB PlayStation 3 and a slimline Xbox 360 into one all-encompassing tower—and rather swanky it looks too.

For those currently pondering the obvious subject of hardware cooling, the developer was apparently forced to forego a liquid-based solution due to space limitations.

However, Timofiend claims to be completely satisfied that a pair of conventional cooling fans are more than capable of handling the associated pressures.

“Spent the last month or so working on this,” he outlined via Reddit. “I kept a work log and took photos as I made this project as a whole for you to see how it was done.”

Sadly, the multi-platform PC isn’t available for sale. But, if you fancy making similar modifications to your existing rig, Timofiend is presently working on explanatory documentation that will help enthusiasts understand the process.
