    Sound like you are talking about GameFly. They are just an online rental service.

    Yeah, gametap it is, but i thought it would have been different.  I thought someone finally made some sort of emmulator to play console games on PC ... but this is just old school games.  Ahh well, thanks riki.

      Wow that Gametap looks pretty cool. I'm all about nostalgia and it'd be great to play some of those old arcade games. Thanks for the link Riki!

       Does anyone know if there's a way to hook up your Xbox to a PC monitor? I have this 24" monitor that wants to get to know my Xbox really bad.

      I was watching G4 about a year ago and they mentioned there was a hook up you could buy so that you could play the Xbox on a PC monitor but I cant remember the name of the hook up. I've looked all over and no one sells a a hook up that'll work.

    you just need to look for something like a A/V ; Composite ; or S-Video converter that hooks up to a VGA display (or DVI depending on what kind of monitor you have).

    You could try http://www.lik-sang.com but I wouldn't expect great quality output. I bought an Xbox - PC lead a couple of years back (not a lik-sang one) but the picture quality was so bad that I returned it immediately. It wasn't anywhere near the picture quality that Dreamcast-PC cables offered.

    Thanks guys for the info. Yeah I was really wanting to see how awesome Xbox would look on a PC monitor. Especially since my GF is always over watching girlie flicks.
