I recently got an Xbox 360 Slim, and I want to use some emulators on it since my Wii got bricked.
The only way I've heard is through disassembling the Xbox and do things with it.
I'm actually terrified of doing things like that, I can't even trust a professional with those things. lol
Well... Is there a way through USB?

No and if you want emulators you are better off with the original xbox. Outside of replacement dashboard, there's pretty much no decent homebrew for the 360.

What Armadillo said.
360 homebrew is terrible, and that's an understatement at best.

Original Xbox is quite easy to hack.
It's even free if you feel like hotswapping it.

I got a spare hacked old Xbox if you want to.
Trade is possible.

Yeah, I still have my hacked Xbox.
But something happened that caused it to be unable to read the roms I have on it.
I don't know what happened, but I do remember my Marvel vs Capcom 2 freezing, and I pressed the Power button.. The light was off, but the game unfroze and kept running for another hour. After that, all my roms were hidden. They're still on the hard drive though.
I'm only able to play backups of games like Bloody Roar Extreme, Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas, and etc.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

  • Shape @ Shape:
    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer

  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear

    Yes, the usual typical response for such a disgusting company.
  • BlusterBong @ BlusterBong:
    eh, could be far worse than it is now, especially if you know anything about Disney in recent times
