Xbox 360 died? Send it off in style with the RROD coffin accessory!

Xbox 360, we hardly knew ye...

    Come pay your respects, ladies and gents: it's the Xbox 360 RROD coffin. Created by [[xref:http://www.creativegenius.com.au/|Aussie designer Alexis Vanamois|www.creativegenius.com.au]], the Xbox 360 ROD coffin does exactly what it says on the tin. It's the ultimate final resting place for 'bricked' Xbox 360 consoles; it even has a cavity for your controller!

    Alexis was kind enough to send us through the first-ever prototype, which we duly photographed for this slideshow. (Don't worry kids; the Xbox 360 in the pictures is only 'playing' dead).

    For more information on the Xbox 360 ROD Coffin, check out the rest of the slideshow.

    Regardless of where your console loyalties lie, it cannot be denied that the Xbox 360 can be an [[artnid:203866|unreliable piece of hardware|In Pictures -- Xbox 360 DIY Repair]]. Some surveys have even put the failure rate at [[xref:http://gizmodo.com/5339915/survey-xbox-360-failure-rate-is-over-50-people-dont-care|a whopping 54.2 per cent]]. We're pretty sure this is an exaggeration, but nonetheless; if any console deserves its own coffin, it would have to be the Xbox 360 (well, that and the Sega Dreamcast).

    Vanamois intends to sell his coffin accessories online -- both to Xbox 360 owners and their PS3-owning enemies.

    "I anticipate a lot of Sony fans will want to pick one of these coffins up – so they can send it to an Xbox-owning friend" explained Vanamois. Doubtlessly, die-hard Xbox fans will also be interested in the product. "If your console is out of warranty, why not send it off in style? It's the least you can do after all the fun and entertainment it gave you."

    According to Vanmois, each Xbox 360 ROD coffin will come with a signed death certificate, complete with the serial number of your 'expired' machine. "I want to give each certificate a personal touch, so it feels more like a proper funeral," Alex said. Purchasers can also send through any additional text they want printed on the certificate, such as poems or eulogies. ('My beloved Xbox, when you became an ex-box the world grew a little darker...')

    The coffin interior includes a snug compartment for your Xbox 360 controller -- presumably for people who are too fed up to buy a replacement console.

    When closed, the Xbox 360 ROD coffin is actually a little bit creepy looking: probably because it shares the same dimensions as an average household cat.

    The RROD symbol on the coffin lid is a fairly nice touch, if a little morbid. It would be like a plane crash victim having the responsible airline's logo on their coffin.
