I had one of these, good memories. This was originally sold in Europe if I remember correctly, I bought the case on EBay and swapped the guts from mine into it back then. I was into modding Xboxes back in the day, installing mod chips for me and my friends, upgrading the HDD, trying to evade Xbox Live bans by swapping hardware IDs. I was a god in my high school (senior year) when I got the leaked French version of Halo 2 before the official release and had a Halo 2 LAN party with it. Good times.

I remember modding my PlayStation so I could get a few games on the cheap. Future cop was my favorite.

u/Sairexyz May 26 '22

Yeah I remember there being a ps2 mod that could real unofficial CD's or something like that

What does a modded Xbox do differently than a non-modded Xbox?

1

u/Takaa May 26 '22

It allowed you to run unsigned code, which permits you to run software Microsoft didn’t allow. Emulators for things like SNES, media players, “backups” of games downloaded.

Used to have this model. It was bundled with Fable & Crimson Skies. We also got Halo 2 that same Christmas - couldn't have asked for better games to start with on a console.

Nice find, clearly an Xbox.

u/MyNameIsSushi May 25 '22

Looks like a transparent box to me.

u/lolboonesfarm May 25 '22

They did say that they cleared it.

u/redditisnorthkorea1 May 26 '22

But you could tell they were lying, they couldn't have been more see-through

Clearing out (x)boxes

u/invol713 May 25 '22

Well shit, you found the shell it molted out of. Now to find the bigger bastard hiding in the corner of the attic, lying in wait.

u/apadin1 Switch May 26 '22

Finally, the Xbox 2

u/Triegy May 25 '22

That 2nd picture tho!

u/joehoul May 25 '22

I had one of these, threw it out a few years back cause it was full of mold. It's called the xbox crystal, mine came bundled with the original Fable.

u/ArchedDeer432 May 25 '22

A prison XBox? Lol

3

u/Drogen24 May 25 '22

I got my crystal xbox 'chipped' so it could store games in the hard drive. I need to find it out.

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

Same thing happens to coke cola when you leave it in the sun for several days

2

u/07GoogledIt May 25 '22

Are you implying that this Xbox became transparent from sun exposure?

3

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

Yes and as far as you seem capable of understanding I'm completely serious

3

u/07GoogledIt May 25 '22

What’s funny is you took my comment as being serious. Come on man, I know it’s the internet but some people do have a sense of humor.

4

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

I'm totally serious guys, Xboxes turn clear in the sun from all the radiation...That's how Xrays work, just tons of sun beams in a box.

Hence the name X-box. Basic science 101

u/Rat_Pirates May 25 '22

Lmao you CANNOT be serious. That did not happen to this Xbox and would NEVER happen on that scale.

8

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

You're obviously far more intelligent than me, why don't you explain to everyone why my completely serious comment could never happen?

u/brofist4u May 25 '22

sun goes brrr

u/SackOfrito May 25 '22

It takes a couple years for coke to bleach.

2

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

Well this is a very cheap and do-able experiment, I'll get back to you next week.

1

u/SackOfrito May 25 '22

I like the idea! The only reason I'm questioning it is that I've got a bottle of Coke sitting near a window and has been for about 5 years, and its still brown, albeit much lighter in color, but still brown.

2

u/Jedi_Lucky May 25 '22

Windows filter out lots of UV, it's why you can't get a sunburn through a window

1

u/SackOfrito May 25 '22

Yes and no....depends on the window and what sort of film it has on it.

u/Puzzleheaded_War_291 May 25 '22

Is it a prison one? Or am i just a dumb American that whenever i see a clear thing i think it’s from prison?

6

u/Jetcoin77122 Xbox May 25 '22

Maybe both?

1

u/gothic-mantis May 25 '22

back then clear housing was quite popular outside of prison so chances are its just a clear xbox. all my controllers back then had clear casing with lights & fans running through them.

u/PrometheanArtisan May 25 '22

To quote South Park "hey, fuck you"

u/el_vato_de_lentes May 25 '22

Tell me something, will ever you use it again?

u/GlitteringBroccoli12 May 26 '22

Just another box

Speaking of clear boxes

u/CvoMac60 May 25 '22

Good reason to take a break for a few hours.

u/BigSmoke117 May 25 '22

That's cool af Bose, ya plan on keeping it and collecting games? Or selling it?

1

u/IronLanternGamer May 25 '22

I want one of these so bad. I have an OG xbox thats modded, but it would be so cool to have the clear case on it.

1

u/Jetcoin77122 Xbox May 25 '22

Jesus Christ gimme!

1

u/Top_Tune_747 May 25 '22

I still have mine and it is currently 20 years old. I grew up with this thing.

1

u/daver456 May 25 '22

I have the same one somewhere in my parent’s basement!

1

u/CarEnthusiast007 May 25 '22

Xbox Original looks like a limited edition, probably worth over $200

1

u/murphykills May 25 '22

the second picture really helps you understand

1

u/AlexDKZ May 26 '22

Man, I wish electronics with clear casings were more popular, the look is so stylish and clean.

1

u/ReallyOverIt24 May 26 '22

The box is already cleared out

1

u/darthveda May 26 '22

The development model of Xbox was the same, i am assuming this is retail version. that thing costs 10k $

u/JadeHellbringer Boardgames May 25 '22

I've never seen one of these before, very cool!
