The Xbox 360 arcade machine has a naked 60GB kit featuring a custom-installed disc drive and infrared sensor tailored for the huge cabinet.

I swear this is definitely not the first time I am writing about such modernized retro arcade machines. The spin for this particular one from Solomods.com is a bit different, though. I guess it's pretty obvious from the image that this concoction--with its "loud" neon sign and Xbox 360 written all over it--is powered by the Microsoft console. To be more specific, the Xbox 360 arcade machine has a naked 60GB kit featuring a custom-installed disc drive and infrared sensor tailored for the huge cabinet.

Nevertheless, what really caught my attention is the antique 27-inch CRT monitor. While it does make the finished product authentic, we're just not convinced this a good match for an Xbox 360 based on our past experience.

There's another bigger problem. The Xbox 360 arcade machine is available only for local pickup in Ohio, and it costs a whopping $2,250. If it is any help, you might like to know that it's preloaded with three games: Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter Turbo HD, and Soul Calibur.
