    Tmbinc (one of the guys involved in the Free60 exploit) has posted up a video of a SNES emulator running on a 360. The emulator uses libxenon so it was developed without any official Xbox tools.

    Spiff of the Xbox Media Center development team has revealed to Logic-Sunrise that a private team is indeed working on porting XBMC over to the Xbox 360 with the recently announced Free60 exploit!

    At first when I seen the SNES emulator running I thought that it was pretty cool but not really when I think about it. I have a SNES emulator on my PSP and Wii I don't need one on my 360 also. All of the possibilities that the 360 can do is almost limitless and they are working on a SNES emulator for 360?^o)

    In my opinion its just not enough. I guess XBMC would probably be nice but it just seems way too much of a pain in the ass and just not worth the strain to do it. If they could get a PS2 emulator going sometime that works great (not perfect) seeing how full FPS would probably be impossible I think it would be worth it.

    Snes9x already works fine on my oldest 486 laptop at 75Mhz. Porting it to 360 with libxenon is nothing special at all, other than, of course, the fact that it uses this very cool exploit.

    Its example homebrew for other developers to look at as pratically no homebrew what so ever exists for the 360. The good stuff will come in time, you need to start some where ;)

    A good point sir. Though it is only a Snes emulator, just think of the possibilities that could come along in the future. I'm sure this was just somewhere to start.
