Someone recently gave me an original XBOX. I figured I could use it as a repurposed media center of some kind, as it plays DVDs and music. In addition to that, I am wondering...I've heard of the process of modding out older hardware like this, in order to play emulated games. I have young children, and it would be cool to set them up with some old Mario games and such. I am also curious if it is possible to swap out the internal dvd playback drive with a blu-ray player, since we've got a lot of those types of movies.
Any gamer techies have some knowledge or insight into this?
