Reply To: Considering OSSC for Xbox


Component cables (including the monster ones) were never officially sold in Europe and PAL XBox firmware does not support anything higher than 576i. PS2 component cables were not officially sold in Europe either and PAL versions of games like Gran Turismo 4 have 480p/1080i modes removed. The PAL hardware is perfectly capable of higher video modes and all you need is either a different BIOS (xbox) or NTSC games + soft / hard region mod (PS2). As a rule of thumb, just don’t buy PAL consoles & games or be prepared to mod them to (hopefully) bring them up to spec 😉
