About 3 or so weeks ago, i was at the Capital Flea market in San Jose, as I always am. I saw a peculiar object, a clear cased original xbox. I never really got into collection xboxes, but hey, maybe it's some neat promo or something right? I kneel down and see DEVELOPMENT KIT blazed on the front in green text, and then i knew it might be special. Asking price? 20 dollars. Ouch, a little steep for a gamble, after all, it could just be a case mod. I paid the 20 and ran though. I never paid much attention to it, just sitting in my game room. but with spring break upon me, i decided to do a bit of research.
Seems they go for a tad more than 20 dollars, according to some niche xbox forum i came upon:
that's one example i found of a sales thread with an actual price in it. I also found a thread of a guy who found one at a thrift shop for $195, and everyone was commenting how it was a steal.
So, DP, what do you think it is worth? judging form the few threads i've seen, the price is all over the place, but defiantly in the 3 digit range.
Here is my unit:
There is some sort of plastic damage on the bottom right corner, looks like it melted a bit. I also included a picture of the back and it's custom ports.
Assuming the unit comes with nothing but it self, what would you price it at? Any help is appreciated.
some more info i came across, maybe it can be of assistance? http://www.llamma.com/xbox/xbox_developer_kit.htm
