Re: BBC article revelations... XBox is not about games!
"That's a kind of "you use our stuff only" kind of assumption. It ignores anything else you're doing and the ability of your equipment to handle all of it. Not to mention the space."
Sorry, can you run that past me again?
If you really really need to play old games then keeping the original console is not a hardship. Plus it will be far better than any kludged software "PowerPC to x86 conversion process for selected titles only" solution anyway.
