As some of you might know I’m not a huge fan of gaming original systems but also like to dabble in the dark art of emulation. Yes, I know many purists will soon be hitting the back button at disgust — however I’m of the view that emulation has a place in every retro gamer’s life. Emulation lets you experience games in near pixel-perfection you might not ever be able to manage or find and from a historical perspective it’s an excellent way to archive and catalogue titles which would otherwise disappear.

My choice of emulation instrument is a self-modded first (some call it’classic’ now) Microsoft XBox. I’ve been asked on numerous occasions about the way to mod an XBox and everything a modded XBox is, so in this series of posts I will reveal to you the capacities of my two components and show you the way to go about getting your ownpersonal.Read here https://romshub.com/roms/microsoft-xbox At our site

I opted to use this specific hardware after stumbling across websites run by fans and finding how big the XBox mod landscape is and exactly what a capable machine they are for emulation functions. Virtually every emulator ever created has been ported to XBox and in the majority of instances continues to be enhanced still further by enthusiasts with the inclusion of video sets and artwork trynextstep.com. Of course it’s possible to use an XBox as a terrific networked Media Centre also it does a lot more things aside but as this can be RGC I will focus on the subject of retro computer and console emulation.

A modded Xbox is my own pick over PC/Mac emulation for the next 6 reasons:

1. The XBox is relatively simple to unleash yourself (soft-modding a Conventional 8gb XBox takes minutes once you understand the way to have the tools/software)
2. The device fits under your telly, unlike a PC
3. A classic XBox is affordable, I noticed them being sold with a controller for #14.99 recently at my local GameStation. EBay is another great supply of inexpensive XBoxes. I use Macs, have done since 1988 (Mac Plus, SE-30, IIx) and as Mac users will understand we’re the bad terms of PC users as soon as it comes to emulation. Unlike a Xbox 360, the first Xbox is very reliable — nearly bombproof. The programmer scene is still going strong and new variants of favorite emulators are released weekly

A modded XBox also has the following advantages:

1. Area free games and DVD
2. Ability to run in HD (720p and even 1080p)
3. You can upgrade your HDD to something bigger
4. You can save your DVD films and games to a HDD and play out there (quicker loading times)
5. Skill to use a mouse and keyboard (good for those point and click adventure titles)
6. Enormous development landscape leading to countless flashed emulators and utilities
7. Fully networkable over LAN with any other devices you’ve
8. Good alternative to your PC at a House arcade cabinet setup
9. Once the HDD is updated they make decent Network Media Centres (XBMC)
