So i recently bought an Xbox 360 Devkit.

This one: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/european-xbox-360-devkit-sidecar-xdk-psu-cables.1062902/

KILLERHEDAKE explained to me how to use it, so i can test it out until it is sold.

He saw the pictures i posted and asked me if i could check what "Prototype.xex" was.

So now that i am home, that is exactly what i did and i honestly have no idea how to say this without sounding insane. It actually looks like a very unfinished version of an xbox 360 game.

PICTURES:




I googled the name of that lake and i found a lot of links to World of Warcraft.

Any Info/Opinions on this?

Who had the console before you?
The person who last had it could have just made that .xex himself.
It is interesting, though.

The fact it was renamed from default.xex makes me believe it could be a homebrew creation, but from the graphics it appears as a legit beta version of something. The previous owner regardless if it was there from a dev may have just renamed it to keep order on the console (It's what I do anyway).

If you look at the graphics you can see that the inventory, lifebar and minimap are obviously straight out of World of Warcraft.

The Minimap even has a title, showing the location "Lake Al'Ameth", which is a location in World of Warcraft.

I know that i have no clue what this is and that i can only guess, but it does kinda look like WoW.

The XDK displays the XeX-file as having been created sometime 2010.

Is interesting as I've not seen anything like it. The huds ALL match WoW. I'm guessing some sort of unfinished homebrew

That would be crazy. Forgive me if I am wrong, but I remember Blizzard saying they were never going release it on console. Shall be interesting to see if this is true.

Should upload and PM certain people like me the download link... blizzard never said they were working on one publicly but after befriending a GM and watched him get promoted he told me his bosses had someone with "xboxs" working on stuff..

I know this sounds awfully selfish, but i gotta admit, that i am still interested in selling the Devkit and giving away part of the things that make it valuable in the first place makes me worry that i might not be able to sell it.

Not to be insulting but I don't think this unfinished bit of nothing would make it worth anything more (not more than the devkit is already worth. Devkits are worth a good value regardless). I would say to share it with the community to see if someone could potentially build upon and make it something worthwhile. It may not be possible, but you never know until then. Just my opinion as I don't even have a devkit or anything that could run this. If you'd rather hold out that's up to you and if you can find someone willing to pay more for this then by all means

Honestly, I believe that he was talking about diablo 3

Well most collectors, myself included, will pay a bit more for rare goodies left behind from dev teams. Mind you not a fortune more, but it certainly is more attractive than a wiped empty sidecar/hdd.
