Gears Of War 3 is getting everyone hot under the collar here at the office - and not to mention its legion of fans that flocked to the exceptional shooter franchise in droves. But if you're really, really excited about the third episode of the Gears Trilogy, you will soon be able to proudly display your allegiance with an elaborate official 360 casemod from Calibur11 and Epic Games. This monstrous beast is packed with a few surprising features (including some interesting interactive functionality), and we have more details and pictures below.
Entitled the 'Gears 3 Vault,' this Xbox 360 slim case is anything but slim. An expanded case makes for better airflow (just in case...) and four enormous feet keep it firmly rooted to the spot. However, the first thing you'll notice is the massive backlit Crimson Omen, that can be customised in terms of colour and flashes every time an enemy manages to kill you in the game. The other side also features a sculpted mount for players to place their controllers while inactive. It'll cost £74.99 in case you're interested - and won't void your console warranty.
I'm not sure this is necessarily up my street, but hey, it really does look the business.
Calibur11 are thrilled with both the vault and the upcoming title, stating that it will "raise the bar" in terms of branded casemods.
We are huge fans of the ‘Gears of War’ franchise and really wanted to raise the bar with our exclusive Gears of War 3 Vault. We believe we have succeeded in doing so with the addition of the different colour modes and the Infected Omen which reacts every time you get downed or are revived in the game. - Coy Christmas, CEO of Calibur11
