I've just been in Blockbuster Telford where they had a pile of second hand Xbox's and PS2's for sale. Looked to be a bit of a clearance but there was at least a dozen of each. There was;

XBOX 1 for £9.99 (XBMC candidate for a tenner?)
PS2 fat for £24.99 (if you'd prefer to play your PS2 games on an original PS2)
PS2 thin for £29.99 (As for fat PS2, but a bit more awkward to put in your media cabinet due to the flip top lid)

I couldn't tell whether they were with games, controllers, boxes or anything, the units were just piled up on the floor. Still seemed like a decent deal though (had I not already got two XBOX's I would have had one!). I'm afraid there's no way of me knowing whether it's nationwide, I don't even have a Blockbuster near to home.

Sorry, don't have a pic and wouldn't want to favour either MS or Sony by using one of their logos.

Can download it for PSP or PS3 for £2.29 - thought it was a pile of junk myself after doing just that. Speed Freaks was my kart racer of choice, back in the day........

£10 for an old eggbox? Bargain. Problem is I already have 4, now I just need 100 metres of ethernet cable and the wife to go away for a fortnight :thumbsup: (Will homeplugs work or xbox1? Don't see why it wouldn't)

got it on my psp already but cant play 2 player which was one of the best things about it, my girl friend loves Mario Kart Wii but i prefer CTR but we have never been able to play 2 player

trying to get it running on my Wii atm if not might get it working on PC but its not the same lol

Xbox 1 so that I can run XBMC for a tenner! There's no better deal out there!!!

ps3's last longer than the xbox360.......ive had 4 this year - and i use mine light - moderate use...luckily only paid for 1 as other are repairs or replacements.....tho my latest failed after 4 months and the repaired last ONE WEEK, so ive demanded a new one....my xbox lasted 4 years without prob after moderate use plus 2 years or so light/no use - still works fine

Excellent deal for an Xbox 1 - as many have said, its worth getting just to install XBMC on alone - far cheaper than paying over the odds for a little media centre PC!

Heated and repped!

dont see any reason why the home plug wont work for the xbox - i use them (hetgear hx101 hd 200mb ones) for my xbox360 and get a very stable connection - speeds approx 30-70mb/s - much better than wireless N - given up on wireless (networking, even keyboards, though strangely mice seem ok)

avctaully i might get the old xbox back from my mum and run xbmc on it - they can have the gamecube

Bargain. Although XBox is no longer being supported in XBMC builds, I have three of them. Excellent little machines.

Not so, there are still almost nightly builds of the SVN available if you know where to look for them. I can't post a link to the site, but trust me, its there. Do a Google search. :thumbsup:

I've lost touch with the XBMC scene, do you think it's worth updating it? I reckon I'm about twelve months out of date?

Homeplugs work fine, I have a pair of 85Mb ones and they can handle standard divx feeds. I daresay I would struggle with hi def, but then again so does the Xbox!

Definitely, if you've been out of it for a year, there'll be a lot of new updates, enhancements, features & bug fixes that you're missing out on. Just recently when I updated mine I gained a "viewed" icon for TV shows / films I have watched, which I find very useful.

Bargain.
1. XBMC for Xbox still has nightly builds... t3ch.yi.se/

2. If you want to cable up and put patch boxes in every room, Screwfix do a nice kit.

3. XBMC has some nice plugins for justin.tv, youtube, LastFM etc...easily installed through the SVN Repo Installer unser Programs from the main menu.

Ive got 6 altogether, one for each room + a spare and I think XBMC is the Dogs Doodars

I too have have xbox 1's for every TV/room. However, I am thinking of moving on to newer kit becasue they cannot handle HD and the fan is a bit noisy. Or have you over come these drawbacks?

10 quid xbmc = bargain of the year

Mine is really very quiet. 2 tips:

1) XBMC has an auto fan speed option. Turn this on, set the target temperature to 50-55 degC and it'll automatically slow down the fan if the xbox is running cooler than it needs to be.

2) Install a good quality quiet 80mm fan in place of the standard 70mm one.

sorry to sound dimm but what is xbmc? Sounds interesting!!

It is XBox Media Centre, it is a fantastic app that lets you stream near all formats of video (inc 720p hd) and audio as well as online media such as iplayer, youtube, justintv, shoutcast etc

It also lets you run 3rd party emulators so you can play snes, genesis, n64 etc games on it.

For a tenner this is a fab price, however I would advise against getting the crystal coloured xbox as in my experience these are a pain to mod! Unsure if I can link to how to mod them but to soft mod them you need splinter cell and a memory unit, im sure google will have a full guide though!

I don't think i saw any crystal coloured ones in the pile, they were all standard black.

I have noticed occasionally a certain auction site has sellers that have the necessary game and memory card as a single item, for example item 260527620556. And you can either resell it for the same money, or keep it for future upgrades.

excellent, does anyone know what they come with such as controller, memory unit, av lead etc?

home plugs will worth with anything with an Ethernet port perfect for my linux box which wont work with wireless lol

That's what I couldn't really tell. I would hope at the very least there would be a power cable, an AV lead and a controller. There won't be a memory unit as they aren't 'standard' for the xbox 1. The built in hard drive took care of save games etc.

nice one cheers for the info, for some reason i assumed the memory units were standard with the controllers...!

Picked up an XBOX and ps2 from Lincoln today, great deal! And if I break the XBOX whilst modding it then whats a tenner?
