Still couldn't find my copy of "Black", but got sucked into a session of Forza which I've always preferred to Gran Turismo

Prices are still pretty cheap at the moment. a handful of games are starting to rise in price though.

Off the top of my head there's:

Painkiller: Hell Wars
Outrun 2006 (for LAN compatibility)
Star Wars Battlefront II (again, for the LAN)
Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GOTY Edition

Xbox version of San Andreas always seems to sell for a considerable amount compared to the PS2 version as well.

Jurassic Park Operation Genesis is around £30
I'd imagine Yeti games is a lot.
Stubbs the zombie is around £15
Shenmue 2 is £25
Steel Battalion is at least £100

Ah yes, Jaws Unleashed. Sold mine on ebay and it went for over £40. Another case of the PS2 version being worth bugger all but the Xbox version being uncommon enough to command a bit of money.

Soft modded mine yesterday, loaded C64, megadrive and Snes emulators.

As others have stated above, picture quality is questionable, may be due to the fact I have my outputs going thru a multi-scart box (got my ps2 and a dvd player going into the same LCD TV).

Will have to try it plugged directly into the LCD to see if that makes any difference.

Downloaded coinops 6, will give that a whirl tonight.

Can't believe that modding it has opened up the console, it's like a new machine!

Recently considered buying an Xbox for emulation - but i know nothing about things like this. Id like to run emu's for C64/Spec/Amstrad , Amiga if possible and MAME , PC engine and anything else possible- not bothered about the Snes/MD/MS.

Firstly , how easy to use are the Emu's and is there a keyboard available to connect for the computer titles?

These are the emulators on my Xbox.
You do get adaptors that allow you to connect a ps2 mouse and keyboard but never used one so don't know how compatible they are with any emulators.

Thats really the reason Id like to use an Xbox myself - i mean , im hardly likely to get hold of a Colecovision or an MSX , im just concerned that keyboard control for some things is lost. I think my choice is already made as far as MAMe and stuff is concerned.

Other question is how easy to do? Im not a genius , im still struggling to get a PSP modded to play SNES.

It's fairly straightforward (but then I've done quite a few).
The main thing is getting the right equipment, primarily a cable to connect a USB drive to the xbox.
