Post XBOX Collecting Guide

As John said on his competition video, this forum is to help each other out and have fun!
Well I've made a simple page on my blog sharing little information on each Limited Edition or scarce XBOX hardware. I'll move later to Microsoft bannered games and so on. If you have any information about systems let me know, I'll add it 🙂

http://hexigon.blogspot.com.au/p/xbox-limited-editions.html

So far I own
- Standard black system (I have 2 of those hah)
- Crystal Pack System
- XBOX Debug Kit

If this isn't allowed John, just let me know 🙂

Hey cool site! I have a Debug Kit myself though it's all tucked away safely.

But nice!! I've always wanted to find a Crystal Xbox but I could never find one that isn't crazy priced.

I own :

- Debug Kit
- 2 Charcoal black systems

I really think serious collectors are going to start taking original Xbox collecting serious, so it's cool to see your dedication to the console. Also, that Hello Kitty/Crystal Xbox looks pretty sweet! Hahaha

Cool website! I like the crystal one. I really got to get myself an Xbox. For some reason, the console wasn't at all appealing to me when I was little but the older I get, the more and more attractive it becomes.

I found this beauty at the local Goodwill this Friday. I don't think it's ever been powered on since it still has the original protective plastic over the power and eject buttons. I'm even betting it was dropped off still in the box, but some employee unboxed it and put it on the shelf with several other much worse looking machines. Unfortunately it got a light scratch on the top but is otherwise in good shape.

Nice find! Do you mind telling me what you paid for it?

I paid $20.00 for it which was a good deal in my opinion.

That's a good deal, all the Craigslist posts in my area for original Xbox are asking for $80-100 lately which is absurd in my opinion. Glad to see some people out there still now how to price consoles.

That's the price I see on CL as well. I doubt anyone actually sells the machines for that price.

That is ridiculous on CL!

A local pawn shop here sells them for $40 and you get two controllers, hook-ups and a free game.
