Xbox 360 video calling

6
Posted 8th Dec 2019
Evening all,

Trying to give someone the gift of video calling through a TV, however I'm wanting to do it on the cheap and I do not want to pay 100 quid for a portal. I was of the impression that you could video call through xbox 360s back in the day? Although thay now doesnt seem to be the case. Is there any way around this? Only other cheap way I can think of is the oldest xbox one console and kinect, although that wouldnt end up too far off the cost of the portal. Any other ways round this with apps and webcams etc? Any help appreciated!

This one is decent. I ordered last Monday and it arrived Friday which is insane when it came from China, not a one off either as a friend ordered one as well and it came today. I got the 4gb/32gb. Can potentially use a coupon as well to get it for less.
