REMINDER! If you own an original Xbox, you should check the hardware revision version ASAP! Any Xbox pre-v1.6 uses a cheap capacitor which after a decade will corrode and destroy the motherboard permanently.

I’m busting mine out rn (and softmodding it while I’m at it). I suggest you do as well, since it’s essentially a self destruct on vintage hardware.

uuuh????

@kaikatsu reminder! I have an original xbox you can have for free

@kaikatsu I bought it originally to get freelance work writing stuff for xbox magazines, it kind of paid for itself. I played a few demo games and installed Mandrake Linux on it and then it sat untouched for 20+ years?

@kaikatsu oh shit that's not right, more like uh 15 years?

@kaikatsu I have a 1.6.

@kaikatsu omg thx for the info
