Raspberry Pi console case

There has been a few comparisons to some of the gaming consoles, even some talk of using the Raspi as one. So, I got to thinking, "would would be a nice way to do that?"

So, here are my thoughts:


Plastic top
Raspi, SD card facing "front,"

short HDMI extension to route HDMI to the "back" 
short Ethernet extension to back
R-angle micro USB going back and down. (power)
1 USB going down

routed out Plastic sides and bottom
7-port powered USB hub

1 USB port removed and other end of micro-USB soldered on
"computer side" port removed and other end of full-sized USB soldered on

routed out Plastic sides and bottom

In each corner there would be a screw-hole to keep the entire stack together, and it would all be made to fit snugly. 6 ports should be plenty for attaching controllers and USB sticks (for saved games). The SD card would effectively be a cartridge.

Thoughts?
