What could be cooler than a Mini G5? The next best thing – a G4 Cube made to look like a G5. With A LOT of time on your hands and the right materials, you too can achieve G5 greatness on your G4 Cube. Granted the website is not in English, but at least there are enough pictures to figure out how to do the mod. Now if only someone can do something similar to the Mac Mini – I’m curious as to what that would look like.

In continuation of the Xbox 360 image, this picture was posted on Team Xbox forums of the same console, this time with more detail. As you can see, the chrome part is indeed the hard drive – labeled at 40GB! To add more fuel to the fire, the image given to us as a reward on OurColony.net seems to be a part of this picture. We’ll just have to wait just a few more weeks until we see for ourselves.
( Thanks Wolfeman! )
Update: We have received another reward on OurColony.net. This time it’s the memory card unit. Seems that the next Xbox will use a 64MB card instead of the current 8MB.
Update #2: Thanks to some investigative reporting by Playfeed Editor Jesse, he has confirmed the images with his sources and the memory card - stating that Microsoft has just upped the memory card up to 64MB.
It looks like Rio has finally gotten around to updating the drive in the Carbon digital audio player. 6 GB is the gist, and you can pick one up for
$230 on June 1. We think the Carbon is a good piece of equipment, for what it’s worth.

Here is what we believe to be the final version of the Xbox 360. Sleek and elegant, is it not? Notice the lack of controller ports? Looks like they are going wireless after all; but what is the port on the bottom left, and the one at the far right?

Thanks to everyone who sent this in. Looks like this is the final (or as close to the final as we are going to get) design of the Xbox 360 video game console. Concave in the middle, like we expected. Also has a platform which appears to allow it to stand on its side. Interestingly enough, there are two memory card slots on the front, a power button, an eject button, and some other button. There is a mystery port on the left, and what could possibly be a hard drive port on the right. Thoughts?
The New York Post, which is not the most accurate source in the world, is reporting that the Motion Picture Association of America might have possibly tipped of the NYPD to the locations of illegal street vendors selling pirated versions of their movies. Nothing wrong with that. The sticky part is that it is being reported that they then offered gratuities to officers if and when they made the arrests. That is the illegal part. Two officers are currently under investigation, and the MPAA is denying any wrongdoing.

The Giga Vu Pro looks like a worthy contender in the PVP market, mainly due to its size. Our biggest complaint with most portable video players is that they are either too large to really be portable, or too small to watch a movie on. This one has a 3.8-inch transflexive, color LCD (320 x 240 pixel) touch-sensitive screen. For me touch screens are excellent on PVP’s, and the Archos AV400 was almost an annoyance because it didn’t have one. The Giga Vu Pro has a 60 GB internal drive, which is enough to hold quite a few movies, photos, and MP3 tracks. The unit also has a TV Out port, which is nice - but it lacks a video in port. This means that it will not act as a portable PVR. It can be had for about $530.
Tabwin.com has the new Xbox 2/360 MTV Ad on their “In Construction” page. Using some video editing effects, the commercial is definitely cool - the video brings goose bumps just watching the teaser. You will need Quicktime to view it. Check it out and tell us what you think.
Okay guys, we know how much you all love video games. It has gotten to the point where we decided, what the heck, let’s move it to its own dedicated spot on the interweb. The result? Gear Live and the I4U Network have launched a new site dedicated to video games - Playfeed. We plan to make Playfeed become to gaming news what Gear Live is to gadgets and technology. We kick it off big with a roundtable looking at what Nintendo needs to do at this years E3 Expo. We are also looking for a few good men (or women!) interested in being an editor on the new site. If it is something you are interested in, drop us a line at andru [at] gearlive.com. Either way, check out the new site.
