Like the changing seasons and the reforming of legendary rock acts, there's a pattern to games console launches so regular you can set your watch to it: if they release a machine in black/white first, it'll come out in white/black a year later. Because that's what gamers want. Apparently.

From one-off customs to rare specials, here are some of the best.
XBook One S
Star Wars: WRECK OF THE DESERT N64
Tron Legacy N64
Orange glow Xbox One
Creator: Ryan Griffin
When he's not building lasers or crafting coil guns, Ryan Griffin spends his time making altogether less threatening console mods. Less than a week after the Xbox One hit shelves, Griffin had already torn his apart and thoroughly pimped it, adding a orange LEDs to both the console and controller and a plexiglass viewing window. Unfortunately, Griffin is only a hobbyist, so you're just going to have to cut into your own Xbox One if you want something this pretty.
