Sure there's no need
to hack it, but wouldn't it be nice to be able to have a couple of 100gb removable drives with your games sorted by genre on each drive to swap in and out and play off of. Also call me what you will, but as a happily softmodded and HDD upgraded XBOX owner I have a very strong feeling that with all the features they're piling into the system in addition to playing games, a software exploit is not only a possibility but an inevitability. I mean, c'mon this is M$ we're talking about. All I know is those firs-gen people are going to have it the easiest, 'cuz for every update or version with an updated BIOS/Firmware etc. . .it's just gonna be a long drawn out game of cat and mouse.
I'd have to say the convenience and flexibility of storing and running all my games on a hard drive without having to insert a disc is more of a reason for modding than anything. Not to mention all the other benefits.
Oh and the 360 will have a remote on-off feature from the wireless controllers. . .*drool* so that means once you sit down to game it'll be like football, get your snacks, drinks and extra controller battery packs and you don't have to get up for nothing but nature. . .damn nature.This post has been edited by hairypottah: May 31 2005, 03:23 AM
