DIY Improvements to your Gaming System with Xbox 360 Mods

Jun 8, 2008
It has been said that avid gamers have too much free time on their hands and too much technology in their brains. Okay, maybe it hasn't been said yet, but it should be. This explains the need for many of these Xbox aficionados to take the system and tweak it just a bit to make it more convenient, easier or cooler looking. And once these technical wizards have figured out how to improve the system with their own version of Xbox 360 mods, they are kind enough to share it with the rest of the tecno-challenged world. They do so through a variety of websites that will bring the Xbox 360 mods to the public at large with instructions that even the least techno-savvy minds can grasp.

That last part may not be entirely true, so unless you want to end up in Wal-Mart purchasing another Xbox console for a few hundred bucks, you might want to leave the Xbox 360 mods to the experts. However, a bit of minor tweaking may be just what you need to get that machine running at top capacity and then some. At the very least, you can check out some of the websites that amazing minds have put together to help you help your Xbox be the best gaming console that it can be.

Most Common Xbox 360 Mods
Are you looking for Xbox 360 mods of purely aesthetic value or is function and performance more your thing? You can find ways to change the color of the LED's on the Xbox faceplate fairly easily if you want a simple project to try first. For those hard core gamers that are looking for the extra edge in their game playing, why not add an extra button or two onto your controller to help you defeat the big bosses with ease? The Internet can help you get there with step by step instructions.

Some Xbox users have complained about the noise of the machine, so there are online instructions in Xbox 360 mods that will help you quiet your machine in a few simple steps. Of course, step one requires that you open up your system and get down and dirty with your consoles innards. Again, if this type of work makes you feel squeamish in the slightest, it might be best to leave this sort of work to the pros.

If you are one of the pros, perhaps you would like to share your handiwork on one of the many forums that are designed for Xbox 360 mods. You will get to show off your skills and others will get inspired by your expertise. If you can't beat 'em, modify 'em!
