hi, so of course there'll be xbox360 mods shortly after, but how will xbox live go along with a xbox360 mod? will you be able to play xbox360 games online with modded games?
My opinion is that it will be even harder this time around to get online with modded boxes, even with the mod disabled.
I am not sure how long it will take for mod chips to be created, there is an interesting dynamic this time around. Here is a reasonable set of assumptions about modding the x360:
1. The mod companies have a larger amount of money and technical expertise to devote to modding as compared to the xbox.
2. There will be fewer reasons for modding this time around because many features are already present in the x360.
3. The x360 will be harder to mod than the xbox.
4. Live is a more important component in the x360 than it was in the xbox, making it less desirable to not have this feature.
