    I am mainly interested in playing Burnout 3 and SSX 3. However, I am not sure whether to get an original xbox or an xbox 360 to play these games. For the same price I can either softmod an original xbox with two controllers and install a new HDD or buy a used 250GB 360 slim with one controller. I know these games are supported on the 360; can anyone tell me how well they run on 360? Whichever console I get, I also plan on using it to play games with local multiplayer. I should also mention that I have a ps3 and a 7 year old PC.

    Go with the original Xbox.
    Far better choice of console.

    360 is going to prove a lot more versatile, but a regular Xbox would be much cheaper.

    Buy an original xbox and softmod it. Its infinity cheaper and you get to visit titles like Panzer Dragoon Orta and and JSRF.
