Modified PS2 and Xbox Consoles

Being one who loves to cheat the system, I've been doing some research on pre-modified game consoles that allow you to play backup games on DVD-Rs.

About a year ago, I ordered one that didn't have the mod chip installed and it ended up where I had to threaten legal action to get my money back.

Anyone have any good experiences?

Hey Malcolm

Check out this site:
http://www.xbox-scene.com/

You can find info on all types of different mod chips.

People with the older solder chips seem to be doing fine with their boxes (but you best know someone that knows how to solder, or you could fry your board). OTOH, people have been having trouble with the solderless chips b/c they don't stay on the motherboard (you have to use the rivets to keep them in).

If you get it done right, make sure you swap hard drives for something bigger (like 120 gig)... you can copy the games onto the hard drive (instead of using the DVD-Rs) and they run much faster (shorter load times, etc). You can store anywhere from 30-40 games on a hard drive at once. You can either copy the games from the hard disc (like a rental) or you can dl them onto your computer and use a crossover cable and an ftp program (like flashfxp) to your xbox.

only thing with modded boxes is that you can't go live...

Re: Modified PS2 and Xbox Consoles

I have no problem with not going Live. I was thinking about buying another premodded Xbox. I know all about networking and all that. I just don't know about Xbox modification. I should only have to put in the IP of my computer into the Xbox dashboard and then I'm golden right?

Re: Modified PS2 and Xbox Consoles

it depends on how your network is setup (if you're grabbing the games from a server), but if it's a basic connection, you just need the first two series of the IPs to match on the box and the computer when you do the transfers.

Cool. And the Xbox I buy SHOULD come preloaded with software that allows me to change the IP. I would just run a basic router or a crossover cable.

Re: Modified PS2 and Xbox Consoles

My friend moded mine execpt he did it with software. I have no idea how he did it but he did but i can only put a game or 2 on there at a time. I have it connected to my computer as well and I transfer movies onto it all the time because my friend is also one of those people who gets movies before they come out.
