It has been rumored for a long time that the Xbox360 will feature customizable faceplates similar to those found in recent cell phones. These rumors were backed up with some convincing evidence when, speaking to MCV, Allard made an allusion that the next-generation Xbox would come in various forms:

"We have ways. We have ideas. Look at cell phones. You can have snap-on faceplates, you can change the skin and the batteries, and you can change the ringtones. I think we need to have a global foundation, and then personalize within region." Buy Xbox 360 Faceplate

Still, there's been talk for a while of customisable faceplates for the 360 and an image gleaned from OurColony.net seems to offer the first glimpse of that. The 360's power button is shown surrounded by different designs - will this be limited to the area around the button, or will it apply to the whole unit?

But there's more! We've also got hold of an image of a USB-to-Xbox 360 controller cable - if you line up the jack to the socket on the bottom of the controller you'll see they match. This could mean a couple of things: the Xbox 360 controller will be compatible with PCs; and the Xbox 360 controller will indeed be wireless, with the power source receiving its charge from a USB connection to the console itself.

Now, a new image released by the Gamem8ker at OurColony.net offers another hint about the possibility of Xbox 360’s ability to incorporate custom faceplates.

The picture shows five Xbox360 power buttons surrounded by different themes. Interestingly, five rings are usually used to symbolize the continents, like the five rings of the Olympic Games. (Although there is no standard definition for the number of continents).

The first time I saw this new image, I immediately thought about my cell phone, the Sony Ericsson Z600, which has removable covers for you to change the look of the phone. All this definitely backs up the rumor of customizable faceplates for the Xbox360.
