I'm assuming it will be lying down like the attached pic. If it is then make a template from a real xbox on posterboard bake freeze and stack your cakes. The template will give you the basic shape and you can carve the curves freehand from there. Then cover and voila!!! Just remember less is more when carving and if you do take too much off you can usually "paste" it back on with buttercream. Good luck!!
