Imagine, you could emulate the processor of a system on one core, and on another the GPU, and another the sound processer, and so on, it would be so much faster. (Correct me if I am wrong) And now it has 512MB of RAM instead of 64MB, and an extremely fast CPU and GPU. Since it is based off of IBM's PPC technology, I wonder if Mac OS X could run on it?

because it needs to be cracked for homebrew to run!!
and while we're on this, just imagine linux on this beast! or networking your box for extra rendering/processing tasks
SO cool!

Mac OSX Tiger would be awesome, and ironic. Can't wait to see the first 360 with Tiger (or any other version of OSX) on it.

Could you get XP hypothetically to run on 360?

hmm, this all seems interesting to see the capabalities of what xbox 360 can do when cracked, but if it messes with xbox live then i'm staying out of the mod-scene this time around. I would like to have Xbox Live, it's going to be freaking sweet! beerchug.gif

Jus imagine that. A super gaming system/multimedia system/OS X combo! For about $300 (?) Finally free of XP and endless PC upgrades. It would be more than ironic..... biggrin.gif

Linux... That will be possible

Mac OS... NO, would be very very very difficult, since you don't have any source code.

Windows XP... NO, just forget about this crazy idea!

Has anyone else noticed how M$, Apple, and Sony have been sort of combining in small ways lately? The SDK for XBOX 360 run on Mac G5s and you can connect, specifically, the iPod and PSP. Even J Allard was talking about how the PSP can connect to the XBOX 360.

It will be more difficult to make/port homebrew apps to the Xbox 360 because it has a completely different architect. The Xbox 1 was actually just a PC.

WE are all intrigued by your current number of posts and your racist attitude. Don't expect us to take you seriously. We are here because we like videogames. You like ps3, so that's cool. THERE IS NO PS3 BASHING GOING ON HERE.
