    Looks to be a Xbox Beta Live Kit, not a standard debug kit, as I havent seen another debug kit with the BETA sticker :
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181076618026

    Not the Seller. Getting to be out of my price range.

    Hope you guys realize what you are bidding on, since it isn't a normal debug kit, and it won't play your games. Ill be disappointed if I hear one of you buy it and open it, modify it, or do something stupid with this rare kit.

    Its a shame that he doesnt know what he has, going to go to waste like a few other beta kits have.

    It's pretty expensive though, how could he have this and NOT know what it is? It always confuses me.

    Because its not that obvious what it is. The beta sticker is the only identifier really. I just know someone will buy it, and then ask why its not booting the XDK shell, or ask why it wont play their games, or whatever. It has happened before :\

    What I meant was, why does a non-gamer have a beta kit? I know what you mean though, I've actually had many people message me on here and YouTube asking how to do all this stupid stuff on their XDKs. :/

    Nice things show up in stupid places sometimes. Especially when former employees start getting rid of stuff.

    Had a decent bid on that Beta Debug Kit... but in the end was glad I got outbid. I'll keep trying to get a dvt3 or 4 with that money instead.

    I was kind of shocked that Xbox Debug sold for that much. It kind of makes me want to sell mine, if I'm going to get that much.

    Read what I wrote. It is not a debug kit in any way shape or form. It is a Beta Live kit. It will not play so-called Unsigned code. It won't develop anything. It does not run the XDK Shell. It wont play retail games. It plays specific beta live games from a specific region, in this case likely the USA region. It is useless without the software for it. And I can only hope that some collector here or elsewhere know what they bought, so that another one of these units isn't wasted to some guy who modifies it because it wont play what he wants it to play.

    Oh sure, I just meant the idea of it all. I was more shocked it went for that price with the guy basically saying that he had never powered it on, or touched it. It's not like Xbox power cords are rare, he could have easily found one and turned it on.

    Yeah there was no winning with it. I would have put 300 or so into it just in case, but that was my limit.

    Whenever I see that in an eBay auction my brain hears "It's broke and not easily repairable so I'm hoping to sell it to some dumb idiot as untested."
