Re: Best Games of all-TIME
I don't see the point in wasting money on cosmetics, or at this point, for even a modchip.
I used a hacked game save for Mech assault to soft mod my xbox, then upgraded to a 200 gig hard drive.
It cost me $3 for mechassault, $5 for the memory card, $80 for the hard drive (this was a while ago)
The only real advantage to a mod chip is not having to lock the hard drive, but if you are competent enough, that wont be a problem.
Technically, until I replaced the hard drive, I never voided my warranty. You don't even have to open the xbox to hack it, that's how pathetic the security was.
And yeah the old xbox was pretty reliable. Some of the DVD Drive models were crap though, and the PSU to some degree wasn't all that great either. But it was pretty rare for it to become useless like so many 360s have.
