      Modding is more trouble than its worth in my opinion.

      Thats too bad, but at the same time, not fair for those who bought the games and pay to play. But im pretty sure someone out there will be able to trick the Live banning program....Lots of people have too much free time

      Eh?

      So you think it's a bad thing that modded 360s have been banned from Xbox Live, to stop cheaters using illegal copies online?

      Agree with you, for the old Xbox.

      I had my original Xbox modded so I could play US games & R1 DVDs, plus use the excellent "Xbox Media Centre" to play divx/xvid etc. Still use it, too.


      No point modding the 360, though. All it allows is the playing of "backups" (i.e. pirate games). No homebrew, unfortunately, unlike the old Xbox.
