My "old" xboxes are on about 75% of the time that we are home, and the 360 is on for some COD2 every other day.

Im disappointed with the new system but I think thats just because im spoiled with the best media player on the planet (XBMC duh) .

The games look better on the new one, meh.

That is, what games are out for it.

I have 2 Xbox's, one is going in my car with a modded PC DVD drive. So it gets linux, xbmc, music, videos. That will be hooked into the sound system - no CD player or FM but all xbox. Its not going to get retired, it will live in my car for a long time. Im thinking wifi, ethernet hook up for external hdd...

ah wish i had the required funds now.

I'm not going to get an X360 until its been modded and has xbmc (or equivalent). I don't play games very much now, but I use xbmc almost daily.

So the xbox is here to stay for a while at least.

I know that this has been mentioned a couple of times, but I gotta say that until an XBMC equivelent runs on the 360 my xbox will stay in the living room.

I'll be running my Xbox for years to come. I don't toss a console to the curb cause it gets old. I still play my genesis as well as many other old consoles. I have no plans on getting a Xbox 360 as there are just no games coming out for it at this time that interest me that are Xbox 360 exclusives.

If and when I get the 360 I will probably be using them about 50-50. I LOVE my xbox and when the 360 comes I'll love it just as much.

My xbox will stay in action until the sorry ass crippled media functions (streaming and onboard) are expanded by either MS, or a modchip.

I love my 360 apart from that. As soon as the 360 is as capable of XBMC or similar and emulators (Xbox and Mame etc), it may be bye bye Xbox.

Sigh... Never preordered, so no telling how long I'm keeping my modded box.

And you know what really sucks? It can't go on Live. No explanation-not banned or anything... sad.gif grr.gif

I'll barely if at all touch my old box even if it does have XBMC or Emulators, I rarely open them up anymore anyways, because I sure am lovin my 360 along with the games i got with it, they all look pretty dang good for launch titles and a few of them surprised me biggrin.gif The xbox live features are awesome also, the achievment scoring is kick ass, and the market place shows promise, and so does the media section, the skinning options for the dash are ok, nothing spectacular but with an update hopefully it will get even better wink.gif And playing my own music from a playlist on my ipod during any game...it's just great!

Wheres the option for "I've already stopped using it" laugh.gif

Seriously though I've pretty much stopped gaming on the Xbox 1, it's still a major player in terms of media though. I don't see the 360 completely replacing it until such time as the price comes down, it's got some stable mods and the XBMC and Emulator capabilities are on par with the Xbox 1... though I don't see that happening for quite some time.

The Xbox is Ugly and dated. None of the games interest me any more. Yeah Half Life 2 is good but why the hell play it on an Xbox when its on the PC. What I will be doing is hooking up my PC to my 32inch LCD install the 360 pad and play Half Life 2 in style. I havenít been playing my Xbox for about 4 months now. I have lost complete interest. I have resorted to playing my high powered PC. Waiting for my 360 pre-order, once I get that Iím a happy man. We have been waiting too long for a new console.

And yeah we need an option, Stopped using it.
