    Xbox is a true legend of a console!!
    One of my favourite consoles still to game on. Xbox and the Dreamcast are two machines that really feel like arcade quality gaming!

      @Prince Groove A.K.A. Your Favorite Pony Boy well unrivaled performance of that generation is a wrong way if looking at it. The GameCube was right on the Xbox heels in terms of power. The only thing that hindered the GameCube is it's use of mini DVDs

    I recently picked up one from a older lady around 73.. Her son bought her the xbox to play a casino game. She played it aroumd 5 times and then put it in a plastic zip up bag and put it in her closet.. I was so happy to pick this up.. Thus thing looks like it was just purchaed new. And they condition of the controller bring a tear to my eye...😁

    I'm at a crossroads. My Xbox was modded but was modded to work at 720p/1080p with coin-ops.l, which it obviously didn't output. It was just stretched and looks awful on a hdtv, on a crt it doesn't work. And now the disc drive is fucked I think.

    XMC4XBOX until it became Kodi. That was actually my first foray into what would be called a bootleg HTPC I guess. I remember installing the first version released on XboxHQ. Streaming smb from my desktop tower and playing shoutcast radio all on my OG Xbox. I have about six of these bitches still all hacked up today. The last two I never fully went with XBMC4XBOX(Kodi) and stuck with that Revolution or Unity dash or whatever it was called that would be installed first. I changed my setup though once the Ouya came out and let that handle my XBMC4XBOX (by this time it was Kodi) and once I got my Shield that pretty much became it. I kinda have this urge to load up Filezilla and see if theres any new updates actually for the OG Xbox Kodi/XBMC4XBOX. I know there was a way you could update/upgrade within XBMC4XBOX but I always just ftp'd everything over to rewrite the old stuff and it seemed good to go. So much memories with this bad boy. 👍🏽

    Hello. I followed mr Mario's tutorial the the letter. After going to xplorer 360 and copying all files over to my flashdrive, I plugged it into the Xbox. On the memory menu, the flash drive shows up but my files aren't on it. I've reached out to him, but no luck. Someone please help.

    Is there a combo of buttons we can press to trigger the menu?

    You and Mario inspired me to get an OG Xbox when I moved to the states from the UK (left my old one back in England). I'm reliving my childhood and it is amazing how well so many of the games have aged and how smoothly many of the emulators work! Keep spreading the word mate :)

      Looks like some variant of Megaman to me and a quick Google indicates that he does indeed look like that. I don't know where that came from as I haven't played a console for about twenty years now, but it must be lodged in my brain somewhere!
