Xbox Modding Community Leading The Race To Save PSX From Going Under

The PSX, a unique piece of PlayStation history exclusively available in Japan, was originally launched in 2003 as a premium digital video recorder. With a built-in PlayStation 2 console, it quickly gained a following among dedicated Sony fans for over two decades. However, its future is now uncertain due to the internal HDD reaching the end of its lifespan with no replacement options currently available. Fortunately, the gaming community is rallying together to prevent a potential demise of the PSX, with support from prominent figures in the Xbox modding community.



Milenko, who is well-known for his contributions to original Xbox hardware, is now lending his support to a campaign aimed at addressing the issue of failing PSX hard drives. In a social media post, he highlighted the concern surrounding PSX hard drives failing and the lack of affordable replacement options currently available.
