PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Modded into One Console

It wasn't a matter of IF it were going to happen, it was much more a matter of WHEN - and that time is now - a single box with two of the top gaming systems in the world running in and out of it, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Reddit user timofiend has found what he considers the perfect combination of two systems and a rather simple encasement for a single gaming unit that stomps out all others.

Remember all the furore back in August, when Microsoft announced they'd locked up Netflix movie streaming for the Xbox 360 and basically told us it was an "exclusive" partnership?  Well, that exclusivity seems to have been short-lived; Sony have announced that from November Netflix subscribers will be able to stream content on their PS3.
