@stevo1978 I find it both logically and impossibly difficult to accept this as fact. If true it would mean that TX is a collection of bumbling, bungling fools. Imagine the conversation around the conference table:From what I was told the some/all their stuff on making the chips was lost. So not only is components that are needed to make the chips no longer available but needed info is gone.
"There's additional market interest in some of our legacy products. Bring me the necessary materials for review"
"Sorry sir, our backup files were accidentally deleted and we mistakenly shredded any remaining documents relating to their manufacture."
Don't buy it. Sheer unadulterated lunacy to accept this at face value. "Here, drink this cup of Kool Aid son."
TX is not a garage band. They are a professional technology company.
I will drop it when they step out and say it themselves: Either that they don't want to go to the trouble of producing any product for the Original Xbox or that they completely disposed of everything associated with that generation and they don't want anyone else to do it.
