    My friend once showed my his new xbox, as he showed me how it plays emulators, games, movies, mp3, online gaming, linux, home brew games, and does his taxes I look ed him puzzled.. He says "what"? I said exactly, what.. what is the point, its a frigged computer now? You just took a game console that for the most part is a computer hidden of one or more OS like utilities and unlocked them all... So why go thru all this trouble when your computer (2 inches to the right) does the same friggen thing??? He then replays why do you have a computer in you car acting as a mp3 player? As this point I stud corrected, and sad then I guess its because you can.. He reply Exactly.

    Honest to me I don't get it? I spend my time making my computer more like game consoles and he spends his time make a game console act like a computer. LOL.

    Lol egsactly my thoughts on the subject too. I figured as the xbox is moded though, i can just throw some of the emulators on to it instead of powering up my pc every time but like you im more interested in making my pc a gamestation. I took a look into it, it seems to be more hastle than its worth truth be told.

    People will always be obsessed with having one machine that does everything they need. As for people who put PC's in their car, that is a very rare thing to do these days and always has been.

    A standard CD/MP3 player is nowhere near the kind of computer an Bxox is, much less a desktop PC; there is no real comparison. It just has a couple chips in the deck that let it read different data formats in addition to standard CD audio.

    Needless to say his argument is severely flawed.

    - Well I cant tell if your pro xbox-hacking or not, but his point was to show people just do what they like. Some of us rip out the guts of our cars to put a computer in them, and others mod the heck out of our xbox. The mods are apples to oranges , but the fact we altured something for our own specific needs or likes are the same. In other words to each their own.

    I think that's the point?


    2097, i feel if I respond I will only sound redundant. So let me explain another way.


    For the most part go to google.com and type in xbox snes emulator. this will get you a few snes emu's to download.

    then do xbox snes "walk through" or snes tutorial.

    then if you want to change the console just switch out the snes with "nes" or "sega" etc...
