    ElGato's eyeTV Wonder. $150. This plays video virtually-live, so you can actually play console games on your Mac. Check it out here.

    <-- going to buy this.

    You need an Analog to Digital converter (or bridge).

    The bridge will have RCA inputs (from Xbox) to FireWire.

    Then you can import video.

    They tend to be fairly expensive..... however... some digital video cameras can do this function, too, in real time while others can't. Depends.

    I would be surprised if you could find a video capture device fast enought to run your xbox...Let us all know if it happens.
