Atari 2600 + Xbox 360 = Atari 3600

Modder Seth Fogie took his Xbox 360 and stuffed it inside an Atari 2600 shell. In a detailed how-to, he lays out the process step-by-step. As cool as his mash-up is, I just wonder why he choose an Atari 2600 — a system that was eventually overshadowed by the NES. Is this some sort of biting console commentary? Probably not.

“For those who are wondering,” Fogie writes, “the Xbox 360 did turn on and stayed on for a few minutes before it overheated.” Guess you can take the 2600 out of an Atari, but not the 360 out of an Xbox.
