Modding X-Box Original console to play retro games?
« on: April 15, 2019, 05:35:06 AM »
Hey all,

I recently came across some auctions on Ebay where people were selling modified X-Box original consoles with a ton of stuff on them, where you can play retro games... a lot of retro games, has emulators, etc. I would have bought one but I already own a X-Box original. Mine is pretty much in mint condition, still got the box and everything, hardly played it when I got it ages ago.

Any who, I'm looking to modify mine to do the same; checked various sites and YT videos, but most of them say I have to buy/rent a kit online (consisting of Splinter Cell and a USB stick with pre-loaded files).. has anyone ever modded theirs without paying for any kits? Like is their a place where you can download the files? I already have SC: Pandora Tomorrow and loads of USB sticks; all I need is the files. Has anyone done this before?

thank

Yes, I believe Shadowrunner got one like that with TONS of games. It's a cool mod to do for an Xbox.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Yeah I have one but I bought it with everything done. They've gone way up in price though, so if you can do it yourself I would definitely go that route.
