I am thinking of getting an X-Box just wanted a bit of advice really. What is the best to buy just a standard UK PAL one or are there any advantages buying an NTSC one? And what are the advantages of it being chipped, do people just do this to play back-ups or is there some other reason? I mainly want one to play on-line with the live thingy, really like the sound of PGR2, I don't want one to surf the net or anything as I can do this on my PC, I just haven't a clue really just want some advice. Another stupid question these are obviously ok for 16:9 tv's surely? Or are they designed for 4:3 ratio. Sorry for the daft questions but I have never played on one although I have heard they are quite good.
