Xbox 360 is just around the corner but there is still life in this current model. Many people concider game consoles as devices that can, well, be used to play games. They actually offer a lot more functionality than you could imagine. In this review we'll be showing you how to make your Xbox console bit more versatile with SmartXX modchip and XBMC media software. Like in so many previous articles this is going to be both review and modding article but perhaps that is what makes us so special, right?! :)
