Expensive Xbox Series S Carrying Case Costs More Than the Actual Console

The Nanuk 938 Waterproof Hard Case clocks in at $377 and offers a variety of impressive features that may catch the eye of dedicated console fans. For example, the entire case is rated IP67, meaning that it's waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof. This isn't the first time a unique case has been designed for console fans, but it may be one of the most heavy-duty out there. It even looks a bit like the kind of case used to transport explosives, though its contents should be much less volatile.

It also features an "automatic purge valve" that will equalize pressure when traveling by plane, which could reduce the chances of an Xbox Series S|X being affected by turbulence. However, it's already unlikely that the console will shift during transit, as everything inside the case in held in place with a custom foam insert. A custom or themed Xbox console would sit snugly in a cutout fit for an Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X console. The case also features cutouts for two controllers, four additional battery packs, a headset, and all required power cables.

There is also a slot in the Nanuk 938 Waterproof Hard Case for a few games to sit during a journey and enjoy the same level of protection.

First of all this is yet another clickbait Gamerant article, like all of their articles. You don't really think Nanuk made this case specifically to carry a series s do you?

That case is just another one of Nanuk's waterproof hardcover cases that they sell with the interior foam peeled out to hold the system and controllers. I have a slightly smaller Nanuk case I use for my telescope gear. I will say that they're fantastic cases if you want to protect fragile items, so don't hate on Nanuk for this nonsense article!

I paid good money for this Dynex!
I mean, I guess I could see that being kind of cool for a console that's actually worth something, like a Net Yaroze or something.

Not only is the concept of an extremely expensive carrying case for a home console strange to me, but to also market it for the less expensive model just makes it even stranger..

That's a perfected excuse to carry out a chopped human body inside or a pack of cocaine. Who the fuck buys a carrying case that's like 20x the size of the actual console?
