    x360key costs way too much considering you can flash your drive for free, but half that price for XODE seems reasonable.

    The next on the list is PODE (PLAYSTATION OPTICAL DRIVE EMULATOR).

    The email says 'half the price in production'. That means how much it'll cost them to make it, not how much it'll cost you to buy it. Tricky.

    Something won't work right, they'll say it does in the advertising, hide that's it's not deep in the forums where you'll only look after buying and finding out it doesn't work right, and tell you you where told and it's not their fault they didn't bother making everything you paid for the thing for work.

    I'm definitely not getting the x360key now. If I get a new external HDD I'm getting this.

    At least they say delayed wode features will be out soon that's one advantage of the xode project. I just hope xode doesn't have a missing important feature like streaming audio this time round.

    I've told them time and time again classic system drive emu's are a must

    Because all those with JTAG, banned or simply offline/off live (see system link being viable with the right conditions) boxes are having such a terrible time?

    I might also echo some of the classic/older system stuff- I quite often get asked to fix such things and replacements are getting harder and harder to source (not to mention potential issues with degradation). Other than the GC and original xbox (ish) I am not aware of anything.
    I am not sure how profitable such a venture would be though- emulators have long been viable for all but the last gen stuff (even then the PS2 and GC are making serious inroads and ignoring that many games appeared on the PC I hear rumblings of xbox related stuff). Granted I might be able to stretch to a DODE as there is a fairly active fanbase there.
    On the flipside such a thing might make for some nice portable consoles.
