Llama team's Rockstar-edition Xbox 360 mod [update 1]

Vladimir Cole
We've blogged about the folks before, but we've got to give them props yet again for the tremendous job they did on their latest mod: a Rockstar-themed Xbox 360.

The wet-look paint job seen here gives the Xbox 360 some of the same glossy shine that contributes to the sex appeal of the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii consoles.

But this mod also makes us wonder why, in this age of candy-coated Apple products, manufacturers still dare to release dull, matte-skinned hunks of plastic that look more like boring old personal computers than fruits dropped from the forbidden tree of consumer technology.

[Update 1: fixed matte/matt error.]
