anyone up for a sweapstake on how long till the new xbox 360 is hacked - i.e full media centre and 100's of GB harddrives? Linux maybe?

I give it a week.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

it is already a media center whether you use MCE or not. and with the harddisk. it is very likely that >20GB options will be available.

And as for the Linux, that may take a while for the kernel to be converted to operate in the custom 3 cores PPC instructions.

I heard that you cant play video files unless you have MCE. It also looks like you are not able to store all of your media content on the x-box, you have to stream it from a PC.

Morbid1: I heard that you cant play video files unless you have MCE.
The Xbox 360 works as a MCE Media Extender, so it needs a Windows XP Media Center Edition.

More important - How long will it take for MS to make the product stable? Users are already reporting extensive crashing. I guess that is MS for you.
