The design of the XBox must be protected by so many parents and so on that I don't think that you will succeed.

I doubt very much that the Xbox has any "parents", I would imagine MS would be very vociferous about any challenge to their patents though.

Microsoft are apparently flogging the Xbox 360 at a loss of approx $100 a unit, the profits coming from the games. Make one if you want, but it'll almost certainly cost a lot more than buying one.
