I've read that the Messiah-X has been complete will it be better than the Xtender and the Enigmah-X. Also will it be cheaper than the others?

They say they're gonna get it in under 20 wires. If this is true and it retains all the features of the other chips, it will be better. With less wires, comes less money out of your pocket.

I´m going with the messiah... the ability to play any region with any remote is what I want in a chip (and playing backups of course)

"Our Messiah resellers have been informed......
We have held off the supply of MX chips for a few days due to optimization work, we can now announce MX for X-Box is finalized with 12 wires only, and is self-configuring for old and new bios versions, no need to set jumpers or wire anything, MX detects and configures itself.
You may be aware that we were late taking on the MX project due to commitments to the USA and Japanese Messiah development, however MX took priority for a few days so we went hard-at the design. USA Messiah WILL be launched in approx. two weeks, we apologize for those that are eagerly waiting.
Test samples of the MX chip are being shipped to resellers this week for feedback purposes, we have yet to encounter any adverse performance, but we are honest in stating that our time of working on the X-Box is less than 4 days, therefore any bugs reported will be ironed as fast as possible so that chips are available by the end of the week to Joe public.
Our schedule is to release the 12-wire version of MX by the end of the week, the device being available from your usual Messiah supply routes worldwide. We will however, be doing a little more work on this project to allow any dongle to play any region DVD film, this will be within the next couple of weeks should we find that its electronically viable without adding too much cost to the mx design, this then will be the final release.
On an additional note, we will be adding the MX functionality to the existing Messiah versions of chip, therefore Messiah will shortly support both PS2 and X-box in one chip, simply configurable using the on-board jumpers.
We look forward to continuing to develop for the X-box versions, and set the precedent that other chip designers have to follow as we did with the Messiah for PS2
MX.... no imitation, pure innovation !"
we also found the retail prices (very low) :
1 @ £25/36.5USD
5+ @ £23/33.5USD
10 @ £22/32.0USD
20 @ £20/29.1USD
50 @ £19/27.6USD
100 @ £18/26.2USD
500 @ £17/24.7USD

Well heres the deal with the Messiah-X it will be more like $30, but there will be no flash upgradeability at least in the first few designs.

It says $36.50 right there where the hell is $30 coming from?Go flash your babysitter.
Doesnt Xtender sound like a penis enlargement pill?
May 29 2002, 04:44 PM
it will be if you cant solder! half the wires
May 29 2002, 07:44 PM
i think the messiah mx will rock!!
May 29 2002, 08:33 PM
messiah X is going to be awesome. it does everything the other chips can, plus it might have region free dvd capability. I have never soldered anything so the fact its only 12 wires is also pretty awesome.
May 29 2002, 08:39 PM
its gonna own (once the details are gonna be released and pics and proof!)
May 30 2002, 10:42 AM
£25 is quality considering enigmah and xtender are £45
May 30 2002, 03:09 PM
But we did not see any proof that it works.. it could take months until they will be shipped.. a lot can change in the meantime, slo the prices of the competitors..
May 30 2002, 04:24 PM
I think I´ll wait until there´s a chip that makes the xbox an all region DVD player.
May 30 2002, 05:11 PM
The price really sounds great but i've also heard about the downgraded quality of the chips used to create the lower price.
How would this chip do in the long term? Will it keep on working after the next year or so or would something little give it a problem and stop it from working or even worse. Is there any possibility of it overheating and messing up something about your xbox?
May 30 2002, 05:55 PM
From what I have been reading personally, im going for the Enigmah no matter how many wires it has. It seems its the only chip that spends the time to work on quality not quantity (Xtender). And its the only chip that lets the future users know every step of the development (Messiah-X). So ill let u all know how happy i am with my Enigmah when it comes.

Mx will be the best chip in the long run, but dont expect to see it until july / august. If they tell you any date just add 30-60days.
