The Xbox Music Mixer is currently no longer sold at retail stores. It is now considered rare and can only be bought online from auction websites such as eBay. Even when sold online, it is still very difficult to find one that still comes with the microphone and even more rare to find one still in its original packaging. While Microsoft no longer produces Xbox Music Mixer, they still host screen shots, trailers, and downloads regarding Xbox Music Mixer. Microsoft still allows you to download the Xbox Music Mixer PC Tool for your computer which allows you transfer music and photo contents to the Xbox (note: each transfer to the Xbox requires an Ethernet bridge between the Xbox and your computer).
