In our day and age, no one ever wants to recycle, use someone else’s old stuff, or even take a refurb. Sure doing so reduces on various planet sucking resources but that’s not what anyone cares about. God forbid their *insert product here* have a hairline scratch that somehow takes away from the overall enjoyment. Out of nowhere rant aside, Gizmodo reader Nic H sent in pictures claiming to be a new repair method being explored by Microsoft.

Obviously his model is a refurb as they don’t come from the store all nice and new looking quite like that. Maybe Microsoft was merely trying to save on excess plastic by strategically removing pieces here and there no? Whatever the case, getting a RRoD, waiting eons, then receiving your console in a condition such as is pictured above and below would surprise anyone I’m sure. To give credit where it’s due, Microsoft did ship the unit with nice, plush green foam did they not….?

I’m all about cool Xbox mods. Someone really needs to come up with a beat to hell mod that looks like it was beat through all kinds of hell. Just without the — you know — actual beating to the point of claiming the internal components’ lives. Anyone up to the challenge?
