Ok, I have around $250 that I am gonna be spending on one of these options, but my question is which one should I do, and which one will I get my money's worth out of?

Option #1
  • Xbox ($100 Used)
  • Two games (probably used)
  • One Extra Controller
Option #2
  • Xbox ($100)
  • Have a guy put LinuXbox in it ($99)
  • 1 Game (preferably Used)
  • 1 cheapo controller
  • USB Keyboard and mouse, and Xbox Breakaway Cable to modify into a USB Hub
Option #3
  • Xbox($100)
  • PS2 (also $100)
  • One Used Game for each
Option #4
  • A digital video camera?
The thing about LinuXbox is that it gives you emulators, a media player, a web browser, and a bunch of other cool shit. He doesn't even have to open the Xbox, because that voids the warranty. What he does is that he modified an Xbox breakaway cable to a USB Hub, and he used those little "mini-drives" on the hub. The Xbox then reads those as memory cards.. Or something around the lines of that. It's been awhile since I was in there, and can't really remember what he did. The way I'm looking at it is that I've got an okay computer that can do all that for me already.

I've needed a digtal video camera for awhile, also... I may wait for that.

Id suggest against a used X-box. Better off getting one with fresh memory and the factory garentie. Try and get a used S-type controller ( smaller more comfy controllers ). As for games thats up to you, but I suggest NinjaGaiden and the all powerfull halo for starters.

Definetly the xbox, but i would suggest a new one. Ypu can get those pack things from like costco and it gives u 2 controllers, mechassault, and the xbox I think.
I meant i think it gives u 2 controllers not the xbox

I would also suggest that you get a new xbox. You can get an xbox, mechassualt, a controller, and an xbox live trial for $170-$180. Then you can get halo 2 when it comes out.

okay, thanks for the input! I may do the whole "Xbox Kit" thing with mechassault and all that shit, but here's what I'm gonna do:
  • NEW Xbox
  • Amped 2 ($20)
  • SSX3($20)
  • another controller
  • and maybe a few other games

If you do get a few other games, I'd recommend Ninja Gaiden is you have the cash. Otherwise Halo is good (okay 1 player, but great multiplayer if you can get more controllers).

How about this. Halo Xbox, Extra controler, DVD burner, 128 Jump drive, one of These ,and a 50 pack of DVD-rs. Look for insturcts and mod your xbox and burn games for yourself. Or not...

I like how gamefreak thinks :D . I would suggest something better. May be harder but its still good. First mod your with the xbit mod chip (I believe thats the one) then you can do what gamefreak said to do by burning games on disks. Or you can put a harddrive in your xbox like say 120 gig and you get media player the weather if your hooked up online, you can put more apps on it (emulators) and you can save games and dvds on it, instead of burning them.

Edit: This is basically if you want a computer type deal, if you want to play on live and stuff like that I suggest just getting a new xbox. This is about the same as the linux deal except you have a hard drive in it.

Well, mine has a chip but it didn't seem like he wanted to open it. A large hard drive is also a good idea.

If you ever feel like another option, there's always a GameCube.

Now that is a fun console.
