Bricking it

Posted by Philip on September 22nd, 2007 — 11:41am

I got an Xbox 360 yesterday. As I opened the console packaging, little was I to know that there was quite a remarkable object inside. I’m not talking about the Xbox 360 itself, but the remarkably huge power brick that was about to spring out and slap me across the face. It became clear to me that Microsoft have taken the ‘brick’ part far too literally and has produced an object that is comparable in mass and volume to an actual brick you would build a house with. When I say that it’s huge, I’m talking Chris Porter huge. This thing could literally crush a small child.

Here are some photos of the brick beside various household objects.

    Of course the ultimate addition to the 360 pack would be a mango itself.

    You should have heard that thing after you left the room the other night.

    Like some sort of wheezing, fat asthmatic, after carrying some very heavy shopping.

    Forget about that. The real scoop is that you got a Facebook account.
