Hi, I am looking at a games console and after reading loads of posts will opt for x-box,but cant afford the new 360 one. I gather from reading these posts, The x-box can be modded in several ways... softmodded or hard modded what is benefit in either as i gather both will give ntsc output at different resolutions.Is either legal? Will either allow Back-up copies to be played(am not a pirate). What is the benefit in changing harddrive and how can it become a media centre? Does either way restrict you ,eg gaming online etc? What price would u expect to pay for these options already done secondhand? Is the crystal one different spec or just fancy case?
