GAEMS' Console-In-A-Case Makes Xbox 360 Mobile

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 17 comments

It might be a bit of a chore to cart around, but if you're determined to lug your Xbox 360 along when you go on holidays, then you'll need a way to carry it, won't you?

The new Xbox might be smaller and more portable but that doesn't mean those of us with last generation consoles can't take ours with us wherever we go. And while we're at it, should the fact that our cabin in the woods doesn't have a TV stop us? No, it should not. That's where the GAEMS Portable Console Gaming and Entertainment System comes in. It's a travel suitcase with built-in 15-inch, 720p display. There's also some speakers and a nice, dense polyurethane bed to protect your console against minor bumps and dings.

Unfortunately, it looks like controllers and power brick will have to be carried separately. Still, if you have $250 to spare (or are willing to spend $250 on a gift for the gamer that has everything), you can pick one of these babies up and worry about the logistics of carrying the rest of your Xbox bits and pieces later.

The case should be available in Q4 of this year, just in time for Christmas. Gadget Review reports that there are plans for a PS3 version as well as a new model for the slimmer Xbox. No word on pricing or a release for those, though.

    Don't be tempted to use it on your lap, if you move it with the disc spinning it will get all chewed up.....beside the heat will grill your nuts!

    So you are on a vacation and you need to ... play xbox360? That's pathetic. Besides, this is too expensive. If you want portable gaming, go with wii (if destination has tv). If no tv, pick ds or psp.

    ugh, wow, how hideous.

    Umm, I'm with Sabot00, how about a laptop? Any 15" decent gaming laptop can game all that a 360 can and in higher resolution and much, much more. Fail

    *Sigh*, what has our world come to. People can't stop gaming long enough to leave the house anymore. Absolutely pathetic.

    You think they would have made it able to carry the the brick and controllers. Anyway I would never buy it, but someone may...

    Sometimes I take a 'vacation' or 'holiday' by taking a day off and playing games! No worries about travelling, getting held up by volcano's! Take a day off and play on the old Mega Drive!

    Would be awesome for LAN parties.

    But i Havn't LANed an xbox in forever, it would hardly justify the cost.

    If you need to take vacations from video games you're the one that's truely pathetic.

    Why I wouldn't buy this I can see it come in handy. Just cause you're on vacation doesn't mean you're not gonna have a few hours of downtime. And if you're at grandmas.. That would diffently be the time to have one of these lol.

    It would have been cooler if it were a total conversion case mod to give it a hinged LCD attached to the console and smaller form factor.

    proxy711You know you have a problem when you cant go a few days at grandma's without playing halo.

    Actually, considering how BORING it is at most Grandma's? This is something I can understand. Now, taking this thing on VACATION to a resort, that I cannot understand.
