The last post about the modded 360 promted me me to perform a ratherdifferent and quite opposite search.
You can easily find modded systems. Many of them are very well done, like this seller‘s custom NES systems…
…or this cool airbrushed 360–Halo style.
Sometimes the customization may time consuming, but effort can’t fix no skill, or a bad idea. Check this custom Superman 360 out for example.
Sometimes the result can even bequite disturbing, like this custom DS. The seller would have been much better off leaving it alone. Hell, I’ll bid NOT to buy it.
You can mod your own system by yourself too. For example I took a NES, cracked it open and made it universal by cutting a pin with a pair of scissors, closed it with a rubber band and wrote “THE WARRIOR” on the case.
But sometimes, the strongest unstoppable and original modder is … time.
Just leave a console in your cave or attic and check the result. Then put it on eBay!

This broken Genesis brings to my mind the day that one of my friend puked on my SNES while playing Super Mario Kart. Good times.
Dust, cracks, label peeling. All dangers to your collection, but there is something much more dangerous and inevitable…..
This evil color spreads from nowhere, ready to infect your beloved system! Luckily this sickness seems to affect just white cases.

Sega has been able to protect systems thanks to a wise choice: all the main products are black. Well, 8 and 16 bit generations for sure. But what about white Saturn systems?
Nintendo has always chosen a different target, with a less aggressive product line…and white cases.
You know where am I heading to.
Ladies & gentlemen, may I present you 4 levels of Super Nintendo bakery!
This post was just a joke, but may help to understand how not to sell a dirty item and that the more you protect your system from sunlight, smoke, temperature changes, water and other damaging elements, the better your system will survive in time.
