Microsoft Officially Ends Xbox Support >
2009/03/02 12:07:29: Posted by DM
Well, this is likely the last time we will have to use our Xbox category. Microsoft has officially discontinued support of the original Xbox, and thus ends the official lifespan of the home console that both launched Microsoft's video game console business, and brought online gaming to the console-playing masses with Xbox Live. For those of you who still have an Xbox under warranty and requires repair, you may luck out and be able to obtain an Xbox360 in return. All you have to do is fill out a form and hope for the best. Anyway, it is the end of an era, and for all the homebrew things that the original Xbox could do, and for all the legit things the Xbox could do, we salute you, MS.

I salute you MS. I have a Homebrew Xbox and it works wonders still. SNES N64 Gen and Nintendo emulators loaded on it. I did alot of the programing and installing my self using FTP. Did alot of video streaming as well

Too bad It can't stream HD content on the fly. Now I just use my PS3 to fill those needs. The Cell processor is somthing special and I recommend a TREY for anyone who is a Audio/Videophile.

And the option to Install Linux on your PS3 brings those Emulators back HOME

"Too bad It can't stream HD content on the fly. Now I just use my PS3 to fill those needs."

Hey Partner I love my Modded Xbox. the best bang for my buck ever when buying a console(actually my girl bought it for me) but still I was just pointing out some pros and cons of the system itself. I own one annnd It's my opinion sooooo STFU and move along?

ok what the hell is a trey...ive been seeing that a lot lately, what does it have to do with ps3 lol

its the 2nd part of the comment that was the problem, fair enough you enjoyed your xbox but there was no need to mention the other bit when talking about older tech.

PS3 = TREY

If I was home I would direct you to the funny youtube videos. I will Send you a PM when I get home so you can check um out.. pretty comical

@ Nemesis IX

I'm just speaking how I feel.. I used that thing alot for movies. It was my bread and butter. I have some very good apps on it too.

How you feel Sky has nothing to do with this topic, it's all bullshit anyways.

Teh Cell must not be that special when I can stream HD content on the fly to my 360 as well.
Written by MASTERJ0J0 on 2009/03/02

can the 360 stream 1080p mkvs? cuz ive been having trouble doing it on the ps3 (so far only the 720ps will play without skipping,buffering)
Written by Sky on 2009/03/02

@ Xenos your exactly right your sure can. Try streaming it wirelessly out of the box and let me know how that works out
Written by Xenos on 2009/03/02

My buddy streams wirelessly just fine, quit trying to twist this around as if there is some significant disadvantage on the 360's part.

You're agenda has no place here in this topic. Take your fanboy ass elsewhere.

@ Masterjojo,

Everything I've streamed from my computer streams just fine, including 1080p videos.
Written by Sky on 2009/03/02

Agenda what? Serious question Xenos and an Honest answer would be nice. Would you consider yourself a Xbox fanboy?
Written by Xenos on 2009/03/02

Serious question Sky and an Honest answer would be nice. What does that question have to do with the topic?

I'm not going to give you the acknowledgement of even answering such a baited question. It doesn't matter what I say, you'll think what you want. It's not my fault if you or anyone else is too retarded to understand/see the difference between a preference and a fanboy.

The moment you see me popping in every PS3-related topic to advertise all things 360, ONLY then you have the right to call me a fanboy of anything.
Written by Sky on 2009/03/02

What? your previous post was not on topic.. What are you a mod now or something? flipping back and forth when you choose to. I asked a honest question. ok so I guess you have a Xbox "preference" got cha
Written by Xenos on 2009/03/02

You idiot, nothing that you've posted in this topic has been on topic.

So again, piss off and let others who actually care about a real discussion talk.
Written by Sky on 2009/03/02

You must be an Idiot and a hypocrite. What have you posted in this thread that was on topic?
Written by Xenos on 2009/03/02

Yes, you're right Sky, I'm an idiot and a hypocrite.

Hope you sleep better now knowing this.
Written by Sky on 2009/03/02

Well Xenos It's truth alone that will set you free. Practice what you preach.
Written by Xenos on 2009/03/02

Can we get on with the topic please?

Fuckin kids and their small penises....
Written by cowl on 2009/03/03
