The eXtreme Box looks sort of like what you'd get if the Xbox and PlayStation had a baby, threw that baby in the river, and the baby survived, grew up bitter, and now carries around a goddamn handgun because the world must pay.
Even better, the eXtreme Box has its own ripoffs, like the Battman system, which combines three terrible things: a shitty console, an even more realistic-looking gun, and a general reminder that Batman and Robin exists.
via A Little Bit On The AwesomeIt doesn't claim to be No.1 in Quality, so we can assume it is a close second.
If we move downmarket a smidge, we can find the Cheer-Tech PX-3600, which looks enough like an Xbox to confuse well-meaning grandparents at Christmastime. The PX-3600 boasts some peculiar features, like nine-pin controller ports straight off a 1980s Atari, a power button, and several controllers, one (and only one) of which vibrates.
TechnabobGive that one to the friend who's gone the longest without sex.
Moving on, we have the terrifically named iDong, which appears to be a Kinect clone perched on top of two VCRs like a nesting bird.
Nikkei TechnologyNo one knows where the VCRs come from, or what will happen when they disappear.
How about a MiWi? This appears to be a Wii combined with a cheapish room humidifier, though it's a bit less functional and well-conceived than that implies.

Of course, all of these pale in comparison to the heroically named Game Theory Admiral.
Nes WorldPermission to come aboard!
Despite its appearance, the Admiral plays original NES games. You first have to plug a big yellow chestburster-looking extension into the top of the Modern Major Generalstation, then install the game on top of it, so the cartridge is constantly staring down on you in shame. But still, it plays NES games. That's pretty boss.
And finally we bring you to the Super Megason IV (and this isn't a naming flourish -- it is genuinely the fourth product in the Megason series). For a mere $6.63, you too can play Javeling Throw 403 and Excite Bike 35235. But that's not all! Not only does this again come equipped with an extra cartridge(!), it has yet another fucking handgun, and also will apparently transform you into the goddamned Starchild.
EngadgetThat's not how you hold a controller, Starchild.
