Same here for giving up all other browsers, but technically it's "rolled in" rather than built-in, and it has to be updated but the updates usually run with chrome updates. Check all by pointing chrome to the following address chrome://plugins

Almost agree, but for me it was "convinced me to build my own HTPC" since I would not have lived with a mundane pc but simply bought a Tivo and ATV or something much less customizable while more expensive.
Assassin, I finally looked at the "basics of game emulation" parts of your guide last night. Setup was pretty quick (still can't believe how fast installs are on an ssd) but it might be worth noting that the gamebrowser plugin has been replaced with gamebrowser II (premium) unless running an old version of MB. I upgraded MB to atlas for the locally stored media scrapes, but I didn't realize I would lose gamebrowser in the process. The gamebrowser II plugin ($10) now automatically scraps console art, descriptions, box art, etc all on it's own without having to add gamebrowser [meta]. The MB forums have a thread where somebody seems to have posted the old gamebrowser dll, but if you download it to your plugins folder and go to configure then you are greeted with a message that your trial period to gamebrowser II ends in 13 days. After using the trial and seeing everything work with what I would consider minimal configuration on my part, I will definitely pay $10 to play all my nostalgic NES, SNES, N64, and PS games. I typically payed more than $10 for almost all the games I ever played there in the first place, so this is kind of a bargain. Working to get multiplayer controller support going (I'd probably sell about 4 HTPCs in one day if my friends came over to play split-screen Goldeneye and skip back to live college football when we're done
The guide really can't be followed anymore unless running pre-2.6 releases of MB, but the configuration page has only changed slightly. Just one more thing to add whenever you get to it.
Planning to repurpose old ps3 and x360 controllers for multiplayer, but none of the bluetooth stacks for ps3 controllers seem to support multiple devices. Has anyone ever ventured into this and found a solid working solution?
