Sure the Nintendo Revolution looks to be a solid contender for those of us that want to have a no-nonsense, to buy and play classic games. But for those of you that don’t want to wait and/or want more flexibility in your emulation options, a modded XBox may be your solution.
For the last few years, the Dreamcast has been my machine of choice to emulation a number of classic games on. However, I would love to have a machine that can run Super Nintendo, Genesis, Sega CD, Neo-Geo, N64 and PSX games. I am also looking for a smaller/cheaper device to play my recorded TV content instead of having my desktop PC in my living room. Add in the posibility for wireless controls (just like my Gamecube) and a great lineup of retail 2D fighters, and a modded XBox keeps sounding better and better.
You can read our discussion on setting up a modded XBox in this forum thread. It is still ongoing and I would love to hear other people’s experiences if you have any.
