Not gonna show my face, but my partner suggested I get Geralt's ponytail undercut hair from The Witcher 3, and 3 more people said I would look fantastic with it. Guess I'll take that risk.

its amazing how when you buy a new tech. gadget you pamper it and treat it with love, and after years of use its thrown away somewhere dusty.

When I got my Xbox 360 it felt like a device from the future that plays 3D worlds online emitting alien green lights. Now I wouldn't care if I use it as a doorstop.

If there's one thing the Xbox brand has maintained, it is the ability of each clunky beast to make a fine decorative doorstop. And if the concepts floating around of the next version are even relatively close to the actual design, then the next one shall follow in their footsteps.

Yeah...I use four OG Xboxes to hold down tarps, as anchors for boats, to keep cars from rolling downhill, etc. They’re just good weights. Like rocks, but with a pretty solid game library.

When the weather's nice the local game shop uses a NES Advantage as a doorstop.

I use my One X for most things currently - streaming player, disc player, shifted to buying XB1 versions of things since it's a bit of a jump over the PS4 Pro spec-wise...

Gave my original model to a friend though. I tend to try and do that sort of thing while devices are still useful.

I like how in Michi's picture, the Year 1 Xbox is already being used as a doorstop.

Only one case of the virus in my city and it's already chaos. Everyone is working remotely now. On one hand I don't care about it because the cure rate under 50 is 99.7%. The problem is that I work in a retirement home.

Edit: make that 2 cases
