Calibur11 announces Gears of War Vault exclusive


It is a well known fact that there are more PC modders than those who dabble with changing the outside of a console, but that does not mean console owners are less passionate about their games than PC gamers are. In fact, most folks do enjoy a healthy mix of PC and console gaming, and this time around, at least Xbox 360 owners will be able to brag about what a beauty their Xbox 360 looks like in the living room thanks to the Gears of War Vault from Calibur11.

This is an exclusive peripheral in a partnership with Epic Games, where Calibur11 just announced the availability of its exclusive Gears of War Vault arriving at retail stores. This is in line with the Gears of War 3 video game launch, so why not make the entire occasion something worth celebrating? After all, the Gears of War Vault will spruce up your gaming area at home, where it is actually a custom, interactive case for the Xbox 360 Slim that boasts a high-definition Bleed-Out finish, controller cradle and an LED Crimson Omen which is not there just for kicks – it will actually interact and dynamically change with the gameplay.

All I can say is, this is truly a work of art. As with most of the artists, Calibur11 too would like their work to be appreciated, which is why they have slapped a $89.99 price tag on the Gears of War Vault. Of course, to make it all the more special, it will feature customized nameplates that will retail for another $17.99 if you so desire to be all the more unique. With Gears of War being one of the more popular franchises throughout the lifespan of the Xbox console, obviously to release a peripheral that is associated with the game is a no-brainer.

I do wonder though, how many gamers in moments like these when the economy is not exactly buzzing with optimism, would be willing to spend that kind of money on a fancy case (sure it can hold a controller as well) instead of saving it up for another game that they themselves might want to indulge in? If you had to choose between a game and this, which route would you take?
