I'm interested in getting an original XBOX. it goes for cheap on Amazon and i really like the sounds of the homebrew available for it, even if there's not many real games i want MAME would be enough to satisfy me. i just want to know a few things before i plan to go ahead with it. 1) how hard is it to mod or chip an XBOX? i've only modded my WII (twilight hack + homebrew channel) and PS2 (tape and tissue mod + installing memory card loader tool with swap magic), so i've never actually done soldering or anything like that. i've heard of various ways to mod an XBOX, but does the likes of the game exploit offer less convenience/options than a more advanced method? 2) How hard is it to get a larger hard drive for the XBOX? 8gb sounds good, but i'm just curious. does the XBOX support external hard drives? 3) related to the previous question: is it worth using the XBOX as a media center? i've got a lot of videos but i'm running out of space on my computer and burning them to DVD is a bitch, so would it be worth storing them on the XBOX? what formats are supported, and does it support stuff like subtitles? thanks for the help!
