Anyone want to buy a modded Xbox?


I picked up an Xbox back in my Osoyoos days, because despite what you might think, there isn’t a whole lot to do in Canada’s only desert town. I promptly had it modded when I got out to Vancouver, so now it can play movies and other digital files, can be used as a digital jukebox, plays (ahem) backed up games, and is one hell of an emulation rig. I’ve also got the dvd remote and the wireless adapter.

So why sell it? Well, turns out I don’t use it all that much. I finished Doom 3, and since then it sort of sat around. And though it has a 200 gig hard drive that’s great for storing movies and tv shows on, I found I actually prefer to watch movies on a window on my laptop as I’m plugging away at the blog, or writing, or on iChat. So I’m going to ditch the beast, but I thought I’d give all of you first crack at it before it hits the wilds of eBay. Any takers?
