Xbox is a true legend of a console!!
One of my favourite consoles still to game on. Xbox and the Dreamcast are two machines that really feel like arcade quality gaming!

@Walter Sobchak it's all good no problems... I just barely knew about this couple months ago lol....

@hacatan24 first of all let me apologize for asking a question like a jackass I was half-asleep evidently. Thank you very much for answering the question. I am not a complete and total imbecile like the way the question was asked, would leave you to believe. Just a little bit overwhelmed, confused and frustrated made evident by my half intelligible question and poor choice of grammar. . I'm just learning all this stuff and there is so much to everything I'm like 20 years behind on everything. I didn't even know there was such a thing as an emulator existed, until 6 months ago. The last console I owned was a 2600 Atari. It was purchase shortly after they premiered/debut , so that it should give you an idea. The reason I was so curious is I because I had seen that name multiple times in multiple threads. Also finding a reply to my questions has been scarce to say the least. I want to thank you even though it may not seem like a big deal, but any light being shed on the subject is greatly appreciated.

@Walter Sobchak nvidia shield is a small device like the size of a Nintendo mini and it's pretty much a Android device with the 4k resolution and comes with controller or if not you can use a Bluetooth controller

@Matrix how the fuk you do that?? what is Nvidia Shield ??? A phone is it a TV or mean what is it. I'm lost in this shit it's making me dizzy it's confusing as fuk. I got about freaking eight different emulators on this tablet and I just want to...... it would be great to put them on one of these machines I got laying around ( X 360 original Xbox PS2). If somebody would tell me if it is possible. I don't want to know how to do it I just want to know if it's possible. If it is possible I can get it done I just need to know if it's possible.

🤔 can do this with a 360?
Retro Gamer and Backups
I cannot get the carousel to show any emulators. I check the patch and the emulators are there. I can even download them from the downloader and still will not show up. I can start the emulator from the file manager tho. I did upgrade my system to a 1 tb. Not sure what I missed but it was something.
Retro Gamer and Backups
Ok here is what I found. I had to load roms to the file path before it would notice them. It would not update the emulators with no roms. Not sure why, I am sure I did something lol.

Hi! First I would like to thank you. I just get my Xbox classic crystal console, (because this video) a cousing give it to me, since he just use it 4 times (literaly) the fact is I think the disc reader does not work, if I play just music CDs start skiping from one song to another, if i put games crash often and said the disc is wrong. I just need your adivice, I just call Xbox in order to see if they can repair it to me but they no longer reapir this console. so i dont know what to do since my skills in repairing in near zero. I prefer to reapir this one than buy another, even if its more expensive. Can you do a tutorial on how to open the xbox and see evident problems... Thank you so much in advance, I realy like your videos

If you buy a used xbox you want to find one with a Samsung drive. The other drives it came with will probably be dead. You can tell the Samsung because it has 2 round holes to either side of the central slot.

I still have my chipped xbox with a bunch of emulators and roms on the 80gb hard drive. Don't get it out too often though.

No shit I don't even know how to hook a fucking PS2 controller up to a damn Android tablet I'm lost but I got a Xbox, Xbox 360 and PS2 . I'm want to put some emulators on them bitches but I'm completely idiotic when it comes to anything Tech. On one tablet I have a Gameboy Advanced emulator a Super Nintendo emulator is Sega Master and a Sega Genesis emulator Nintendo DS emulator for PSP emulator and a PS1. The Playstation 2 emulator don't work worth a shit. It would be great to be able to play it with a freaking controller it'd be even better to be able to play on the TV screen. And if you ask people on here they get scary as fuk they act like you're trying to ask them how to make a LSD. I guess I understand their standoffishness. when I say here I don't mean this video I mean in the internet in general

Great video. I just wish Microsoft's hardware lasted as long as Nintendo's. I bought a N64, GameCube, and Wii, when they were released, and they still work. I've gone through 2 Xboxes and 3 360s in less time. A working Xbox is rare.

@Quintin Fertig Cool I guess I'm going to quit even worrying about it sell the damn things. Collecting dust I heard something called modding it I thought that I could put all the emulators on it and playing on the TV. Got to 360 and regular Xbox PS2 zero games though. Also I hate to ask you all these freaking questions but what is the piece called the adapter that enables you to use a PS2 controller on Android tablet??? I have about eight different emulators on here but it's hard using these on-screen controllers. Hey man thanks for replying even if it's just one word reply it's more than most people have done!!

Decided to use XBMC4Gamers as i love the cover flow. Reminds me of a modern software loader/GUI.
Already have a raspberry pie with retropie installed & many mini consoles (SNES Mini, Mega Drive Mini & PS Classic).

This is a very good console and emulation rocks on it. My main usage for it was xbmc although.
But it's nowhere near to be seen for $10 here in Belgium. Prices vary from $30 to $50. Sometimes more.

Loved that machine! In 2005 I couldn't afford to build a HTPC, but the XBOX was just $150. I have owned many over the years. Eventually the slow ethernet speeds made me say goodbye, but it warms my heart to know that folks are still getting what they can out of this machine.

Hey MVG, thanks for the awesome video, I absolutely love your content regarding the history and modding of consoles, you have made me love my 15year old at this point Xbox even more than ever. I have an inquiry. Could you point me towards a good IDE/SATA converter? I've been trying to get a bigger harddrive for my Xbox for the longest time, but hunting down a big IDE drive has been increasingly difficult over the years. I've found a converter before and the UDMA 80 wire cable that's supposedly required to run such a configuration but it never worked successfully for me, always getting a 07 or 08 error code. I'd be very grateful if you could help me with this, but even if you can't, I still wish you the best for the future and hope you get more content out for the next generations of gamers

I remember doing this year back, I put in a 500gb hdd and installed coin ops which took ages to install because of the size. It was quality as I made my own USB cable for the initial softmod. I felt like I was on top of the world lol
After it all installed I just was so amazed that everything ran flawless

RiesbyfeRoastbeef - Month ago
I can emulate just fine on my PC, the OG Xbox still has a fair amount of exclusive titles worth playing, so turning it into 'homebrew' is just really pointless. It's also the one of the few consoles that really has no good emulator. Unless this doesn't compromise its ability to play OG Xbox discs and games, I'd say it's just really wasteful.

After watching your video I dug out my old modded XBox. Haven't touched it in 2-3 years I believe.
Do you know offhand if you can convert from a softmodded CoinOps 5 to Rocky 5? I like this much better.
