    The Xbox One X just isn't powerful enough for us, so we decided to take matters into our own hands, creating a sleeper PC in an original Xbox chassis.

                              Lol. Look at that thing! The original Xbox came out in 2001, But can easily be mistaken for a mid 80s modular stereo component.

                                            No, the xbox destroyed itself. No, really. It loved doing this.
                                            optical drive failures, HDD bricks, and even the junk PSU's turning into Baked Alaska.

                                            Both of mine did... all of these.

                                            1st xbox: As soon as M$ decided that they all needed to have their cords recalled. I got my bulky ass power cord, plugged it in- *CLICK*

                                            The built in breaker tripped, and the xbox tried to become a small BBQ.

                                            2nd xbox: Bought it used, it worked, and then the HDD died or something. Turns on, but the Dashboard doesn't load, or rather, takes forever to boot up. Can't load games if there's no storage for the console OS to exist on.

                                            I'd love to fix either or both, but that seems like a pain in the ass, as you need specific crap in order to not only repair, but to flash, since the HDDs are locked(rude much, M$?)
