Want to post something important in here for anyone else who already owns or plans on getting a Kasumi Blue Xbox.

Previously, it was assumed that it was a v1.6 revision Xbox due to its November 2004 release (the v1.6 Xbox revision was introduced in March 2004 and by the end April 2004, all previous revisions had been discontinued), but recently I came upon some info that caused some concern about this Xbox's well being. After this concern came to light, I spoke with some other Xbox enthusiasts about it and we ended up confirming that the Kasumi Blue Xbox is actually a v1.0 console, which makes no sense, as the v1.0 revision had already been discontinued two years prior to the release of the Kasumi Blue. It's possible that Microsoft had a ton of extra v1.0 motherboards leftover and decided to use them for this limited edition.

What does this mean? Well for those who are unaware, the original Xbox suffers from an issue where its clock capacitor (a small capacitor that allows the Xbox to keep its date and time settings for awhile while unplugged) ends up leaking acid onto the motherboard, which causes serious corrosion and eats away at everything until the Xbox eventually dies as a result. Any Xbox that is v1.0-v1.5 is 100% guaranteed to have this issue, though when it occurs is not entirely consistent, so there do exist some Xboxes that have not yet begun leaking, but they will eventually do so over time. This wasn't previously a concern for the Kasumi Blue Xbox, due to it being assumed that it was a v1.6 because the v1.6 is the only revision that does not suffer from this issue.

So with the Kasumi Blue Xbox now being confirmed as a v1.0 revision (as incredibly strange and unbelievable as that is), this means that it suffers from the faulty clock capacitor issue and the capacitor must be removed or else the Xbox will be destroyed. So I had to open mine up and remove the capacitor. Thankfully, mine had not yet begun leaking and the motherboard was extremely clean.

Here are some pics of mine, showing the faulty clock capacitor: Kasumi Blue 1.JPG Kasumi Blue 2.JPG
And here is a pic from one of the other guys I spoke with about this, also showing the bad cap: kasumi blue 3.jpg

So yeah, in closing, if you own one of these or plan to own one, open it up and remove the clock capacitor ASAP. Don't let this beautiful piece of DOA and Xbox history be destroyed. And also, if you own any original Xbox at all, find out which revision it is and remove its clock capacitor ASAP if it's not a v1.6.

Thank you for the information. Unfortunately I can not recognize which capacitor is exactly meant (Number) ?

thanks
If you're asking about a Kasumi Blue Xbox, check the pic below. If you're asking about a normal Xbox, send me a PM or comment on my profile with a picture of your motherboard and I'll point out the capacitor for you.

Ok, i don't own a xbox, but i have to be curious, wouldn't removing this capacitor affect the console in some way?
If the Xbox is a v1.0-v1.5, then it won't have any harmful affect, no. On those revisions, the only affect it will have is that the Xbox will no longer be able to maintain its date and time settings for more than just a few minutes after being unplugged. Meaning that the next time you plug it in and turn it on, the clock will reset to its default state.

On a v1.6-v1.6b, removal of the capacitor is not necessary, as these revisions used a better capacitor that doesn't leak. And for these revisions, removing the capacitor actually would be bad because these revisions actually had a change in the BIOS which requires the clock capacitor, though hardmodding the v1.6 eliminates the need for this capacitor.

Removal of the clock capacitor on any v1.0-v1.5 Xbox is a common practice for any Xbox enthusiasts who know about this fatal issue. If you leave the clock cap in any of these Xboxes, it will die. Guaranteed.

EDIT - Also want to mention that removing the clock cap does not alone solve the issue. If your cap has already leaked, you will also need to neutralize any acid on the board with white vinegar. Check all the surrounding areas, as it's possible that the cap has 1) not leaked at all, 2) leaked only a little bit in the immediate vicinity, or 3) has leaked quite a substantial amount and has spread quite a bit through the board. You can notice brown discolorations on the board, which are signs of corrosion from the acid. You may also see what looks like a white powdery substance on the board too.

Even if it doesn't look like any acid has leaked, clean the surrounding area anyway, as it's possible that there may have still been leakage that's just too small for you to notice. After you have neutralized the acid with white vinegar, clean up the vinegar with isopropyl alcohol.

Here we go... I got into DOA and Ninja Gaiden, at the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, and this series (i know it is kinda weird, but i see both series as just one big series that goes into two different genres), so i started to get some stuff.

Keep in mind that this is not as much as a doa collection, as it is my.. Team ninja-verse collection let's put that way.

Ok, i'm no collector, but i had in mind to had at least one version of each main entry in the series.

Under spoiler tags you can see the pictures, i'll tell you what i got... And after that, what i want to get, and the difficulties of getting these things.


What i have:

Ninja Gaiden Black. - A friend from Canada sent me.
Ninja Gaiden 2 - Same thing. (i actually bought a copy of ng2 as well, but i sold that one when i realized that keeping 2 copies of the same game was useless).
Dead or Alive Ultimate (DOA 1 and DOA2) - Bought on MercadoLivre (south america equivalent of ebay...)
Dead or Alive 3 - Same as DOA U and DOA2U.
Dead or Alive 4 - Same.
Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate - Same (my first doa game, bought it in the beginning of 2016)
DOA 5 LR - Same.
DOAD - Same.
NG3RE - Same.

What i want:
Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword - Is the only game missing for me to complete what i consider the modern team ninja verse timeline i would say. And i'm interested in how it plays. No difficulty here, i think i'll get next month, since i'll be unable to buy the metroid 2 remake right now.
A ps3, coupled with NG Sigma and NG Sigma 2: I just really want to feel by myself the difference between those versions to the ones i have myself, and also master those games as well. - I'll probably get those after i finish paying my motorcycle next year.
Dead or Alive 5 collector's edition: I just want the artbook. having doa concept arts as reference would be great to me as an artist. heheh.
A classic xbox, together with DOA 3.1 - Everyone says DOA 3.1 is the best thing ever made, i want to see for myself, problem is, i would need a japanese classic xbox, which i already checked and is not easy to find (don't want to mess up with soft modding), and now, there is the added problem of having to worry about what version of the console i'll be getting and to open up, pour vinagre over it and clean it... I also wanted to have a classic box. I also wanted doa 3.1 because of the superior cover art. So i don't see myself getting this, since i can't find a source to buuy the classic xbox that tells me what version it is.
Action figures. Just to have something cool in my room. But sadly, there isn't many of doa or ninja gaiden around, and the few that are out there are too expensive for my brazilian budget.

About the xtreme series and material related to it, and fanservice-y stuff, i can't bring myself to buy those things, i wouldn't feel proud, and honestly, doa x3 was quite boring for what i've played it, so... no interest at all, i would say that i'm not a fan of the xtreme side of the ninja-verse.

I think it is that, i'm no collector as i said, i just want to play a lot of different games in the series. heheh.

Hey guys, did you miss me? Because I've got my Dead or Alive Collection that I want to show you all!! I've been a fan of DOA since 2014 when they made Kokoro free for Core Fighters on PS3, that's when I started playing the game. And then years later, I just happen to collect EVERY Dead or Alive related game that I find for my own treasure! Here's the photo.

I recently went around to see if I could find some old DOA games at an out of way mall at the recommendation of a friend and while I didnt find any of the games I hoped to find (mostly DOA5+), I still got some old DOA games I didnt expect to find.

Here is all my stuff so far:
