I'm sure an Xbox emulator will eventually come along, assuming there
aren't a few already in the works; they, however, under Linux at least,
would have to implement DirectX calls; it would be interesting to
frequently contact those developers as they would face many of the same
issues of implementing DirectX as the newly formed Wine DX group will. I
don't know of any emulators that support Xbox architecture, but I don't
think wine should be the project to do so, not unless an Xbox game runs
under (normal) Windows.
