Not all of us can afford to splash out on an entirely new Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 slim, but many will want to enjoy the aesthetic improvements a crimson-soaked console can bring to the living room. 

Thankfully, Calibur11 has come to the rescue with its special Gears of War console vaults, which feature a "Bleed Out" colour scheme and LED illuminated Omen on the side. 

The actual vault itself behaves like a sort of wraparound for the Xbox 360. It consists of a chassis, body panels and a locking mechanism, which brings with it extra console cooling and stability. On top of all the cooling and stability there is a dynamically changing game-based LED mechanism, which glows red every time you get shot to pieces on Gears of War 3. 

You are, of course, going to need an Xbox 360 slim to stick inside the console vault; thankfully, wrapping your gaming pride and joy in the console case doesn't void your warranty. 

The Calibur11 accessory is priced in at £69.99 and is available now. Those who want to grab a copy of Gears of War 3 to slam inside the console will be able to from 20 September when it launches. If you are particularly excited you could even opt for GAME's midnight launch at the Oxford Street store. Freebies are due to be handed out and rumours point to the Locust being there, thankfully not real-life, so you should emerge unscathed.

Fancy a vault?
