Xcm Vbox2 Advanced Adapter Lets You Play Console Games on Your Pc Screen

Let’s say you’ve got an video game console sitting in your room, and already have a computer with its own monitor. Unless you’re fortunate enough to have a computer display with auxiliary video inputs, you’d need a second display for your console. If you happen to have a laptop or netbook, you’d be SOL… until now, that is.

The ever-industrious console hacking gods at XCM have come up with this new gadget which lets you take any console with a component video output and connect it to your PC via the computer’s USB port. The Vbox2 Advanced can handle signals from the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox, GameCube or even the PSP 2000/3000 series. As an added bonus, the box lets you actually capture video or screenshots from your games.

Since the device supports USB 2.0 “plug-and-play”, you don’t even need to do any configuration to get it up and running. While the Vbox2 does support Windows 7, Vista and XP, it doesn’t work with Mac OS or Linux. Oh well, there’s always something.

At this point, XCM hasn’t announced pricing or a release date, but you can probably pre-order one over at Extreme Mods or TotalConsole or ConsoleSource.
