I was just wondering how Xbox-scene has managed to stay around for so long. I remember a website about the Dreamcast scene(dc-scene.com), but they got shut down. Does anyone remember that website from like 3-4 years ago? Why can't MS do the same thing to xbox-scene?

It's not like this site really offers anything illegal. Piracy talk is forbiddena dn modded so MS can't shut it down for that. I'm not sure really maybe MS likes this site as I'm sure they're aware that it exsists maybe the information here helps them in some way.

yeah, the purpose of xbox-scene is not really about chipping xboxes to play illegal copies. if you do it that's your thing. it's just a community like any others, a place to talk, get help, and help other people.

i think xbox-scene does got very good moderators which try to keep xbox-scene clean from ppl posting about illegal stuff.

peace out and yah, just enjoy the scene

MS knowns that fi they work hard enough, they will still make plenty of money. For example, I don't own a game, yet even rent a game unless it has a live feature... I love online play... which is exactly what MS is pushing... smile.gif

I think that x-s has kept it legit by stopping the blatant piracy talk.
there are always those idiots who make that hard to do but in general their is alot of talk about legal issues here. The case modding etc is really cool and i have given M$ more than my share of money for the box and most here would probably say the same.

You guys really must be kidding about Piracy talk on this site. This board is full of it,just look in the backup forum and an dashboard forum as you need a modchip to use a non ms dashboard or even read some post in the gamers forums as you need a modchip to play games from the hard drive. Please stop pissing up a tree and face the truth laugh.gif

Oh dont start! dry.gif

Piracy and copyright are two separate things, and links to xdk compiled binaries are not allowed here anyway!

So, x-s is pretty safe!

Just had a thought,I really think that MS are reading all posts on this board so that they can see how there protection on the xbox is bypassed so that they will not make the same mistakes with xbox 2, i should know as i have had piracy dealing with MS about 6 years about and i now know how they work. meaning that MS do there homework

We crack down on piracy as hard as we possibly can. We do help people make backups of copies they own. Don't bother arguing that what I'm saying isn't true, because you obviously don't scrutinize over the hundreds of thousands of posts here that may or may not stand a chance of getting this site shitcanned like some of the mods do. I've already got you pinned as the person that shouts, "Pirate kiddie!!!one!" when a user says they've hit a roadblock making a backup. So keep on contributing solid material like that.

i have one thing to add....

Ok, you back up your game which is talked about here smile.gif

However if someone asks for a link for a site that has manuals they get a roasting.
Correnct me if i am wrong, but the manual gets pretty worn after time...torn page..food...etc
