    Really, are there any survivors like me that didn't get sucked into buying a 360 and totally dissing their old Xbox? [​IMG]

    Mine is still used as a media centre if that counts. Played most of the games I wanted to play when they came out.

    My friend still loves his Xbox. In fact, he just picked up X-Men Legends the other day.

    Me? I have a PS2, and that's the only console I need right now. [​IMG]

    I played Half Life 2 on it a while back, the last "xbox" game. Very often play SNES games on mine though, not so much as a media player now that I have a A605.

    media center and emulation means that my xbox will be used often far into the future.

    i am honestly, seriously frightened at the prospect of it dying and me being unable to replace it. [​IMG]

    I have a stock one with a wide assortment of games, if I play a console the chances are it is that.

    I still use mine, as I haven't upgraded to an Xbox 360 yet.

    I have 3 xboxs. All of them are used for XBMC. Never bothered with games on them for ages. I sometimes give the emulators a go as well. But MAME, C64 and the Amiga don't feel the same unless you can use a proper joystick.

    The original had more problems that the 360. Half of them had bad lasers/DVD drives. I had 3, 2 had a crappy laser and the third wouldn't recognize the drive at all.

    You can softmod it easily with a hotswap. The reqs are: Knowing what an IDE cable is, and being able to see the color red.

    yeah, i use mine daily and am still finding games i haven't played. I must admit it is used mainly for watching tv eps, trailers and youtube videos.

    Got a bunch of emulators on there too which get used every once in a while. I am becoming more and more tempted by the 360 though

    Yeah I got those right but the fucking CD won't boot at times. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong now.
