If you are talking about people in this forum, then it should be higher, but if you are talking about people over all, then I am pretty sure it's less then 5%

This is only a guess as only 3 of my friends have modded xBox's outta all the people I know with one.


P.S. Trust me I know a lot of gamers, I sell my body on K Street in L.A. word has it on the street that Disco might come back!

I was talking with some people on efnet about this, they figured around 1-2%, which seems like nothing, but once u think about it thats still a good 100 thousand (i think?)

MS thinks it's less than one percent from what I've heard. This was before the no-chip mod.

lol Josh way to edit out the 40% bad guesstimate tongue.gif

I honestly dont know how to put the figure into an accurate number. If there was a poll on this site, the numbers for %modded would be greatly inflated, because we are specifically xbox mod oriented.

Overall, definatley less than 10%, but i really really dont know.

with a game to console ratio of 5.4:1 they are doing way better than ps2 or GC so it is almost negligable/erelivant(spelling??) if i had to guess i would say .08 percent.

.sith.

world wide i would say , 0.01% in north america i might say 0.1%

im betting its not allot of people in any place. some people know what the mod dose and are afraid of the warranty issue of opening the case.

its ok these people drive the market.

i just thought of something? mod like mod chip, or case mod?

im sure there are a lot of case modders who dont have a modchip (myself included)

that raises the percent a wee bit, i would think

Okay here is an guess-timate from China . . . 80%!!! Since consumers thier are socially used to piracy and not paying for US software.

Although the MS does not market the xBox in China, I am sure all the imported boxes they get from Japan are modded promptly.

Overall I still am sure its WAY under the 5% I posted above.


P.S. Hehehe way to edit your post Josh 40% woulda made anyone look like a total newb.

less than 1%.

the no chip solution is too complex and is way above the average user.

noone i know knows anything about xbox modding, unless i give them a demo of what its capable of.
