The Falcon040 Microbox case is widely considered to be the inspiration for the PS2 case.

Similarly, the whole process of development for the Falcon and Jaguar seems slightly bizzare. Using the ST case and the MultiTOS debacle both looked bad, as did hobbling the system with slow RAM and a 14mb maximum.
