    That's cool. I wonder if the format is ISO or a folder. Almost every site that hosts Xbox anymore just hosts zipped folder format for use with people who have modded their Xboxes to play from hard drives. I typically am not a fan of the FTP method of transferring games. I wish there was an easier plug and play copying solution.

    If the emulator for PC is finally becoming usable for retail games, then that is a great and necessary step. That Xbox hardware is almost like a PC on its own and won't run forever.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    The original Xbox is one of my least favorite consoles to go back to. It takes up way too much real estate by my TV, it's heavy, it's loud, and I have to imagine it uses up a lot more power than the cartridge-based consoles. There aren't a ton of 6th gen games I wanna revisit anyways, but when I do, it's usually a GameCube or PS2 game.

    It's xiso.iso file format.

    Xemu is a decent Xbox emulator, but I'm having problems mapping the controls for Otogi: Myth of Demons.
