You’ll soon be able to buy a brand-new Xbox 360

A DIY Xbox 360 replica by Mega, exclusively at Target, brings nostalgia. Priced at $149.99, preorders sold out quickly due to high demand.

In 2023, you can buy a new Xbox 360, but there’s a twist. You have to put it together on your own. Even though Microsoft stopped making this popular console seven years ago, a company called Mega has made a smaller version of it. You can only get it at Target, and it will be in stores from October 8th.

The 1,342-piece set includes the console, naturally; an Xbox 360 controller; and a bricked-up copy of Halo 3.

You also get to assemble the inside components, and there’s even a working indicator light. No need to worry about that notorious red ring of death issue.

The description of the set says, “When you open the console, you’ll find a disc drive (and some surprises).” It seems like inserting a fake Halo 3 disc will do something cool with the motherboard. I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds like 343 Guilty Spark might be part of the fun.

The attention to detail in this set is truly impressive. I especially like the touch of including one of those gray detachable hard drives for the Xbox 360, and it’s actually fully detachable.

Even the packaging is perfectly nostalgic, replicating the exact look of a 360 box, including those somewhat annoying side folds.

I can imagine that just a quick glance at this on the shelf at Target would make many people in their 30s feel like they’ve been transported back in time.

After all, this is the same year when games like Final Fantasy, Diablo, Baldur’s Gate, and Armored Core are making headlines. Plus, the Big Three Shonen anime series is back on TV, and there’s even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie in theaters. It’s a real blast from the past!

Spotting what looks like an Xbox 360 in the wild, even though it’s not a real console, would definitely make it feel like we’ve time-traveled back to the early 2000s.

The set is set to launch on October 8th with a price tag of $149.99. You could preorder it on Target’s website, but it seems like Mega’s nostalgia-inducing creation was so popular that preorders are already sold out. Don’t worry, though; there are other companies that make similar brick-building sets to satisfy your classic console cravings.
