I'm sure you could get a C compiler for Xbox, you can get them even for Lynx IIRC...

Oh how I would wish for M$ to just bring out an Xbox handheld already...... and watch the hackers turn it inside out for mass homebrew glory.
I'm sure M$ would do their best to brick it at every opportunity. Xbox sux. There are already open handheld platforms, eg. GP32, so why pay M$ more money for their proprietary bug-ridden crap?
