I wondered if it would be possible and worthwhile to try and mine using xbox or any other console? Probably a stupid question and something someone else would have thought about before but you never know..

no.
its hardly usable even for gaming.
majority of my friends use PS3 and 360 as strictly as communicating device and media players.

It was sort of looked into theoretically, only marginally better than a good CPU miner. It's not made for sheer calculations like OpenCL/CUDA cards are.
