Hi Guys, I've been torn between an xbox 360 and ps3 for a while, and have a few different questions. Sorry for posting stuff which is on here already, but some of the info might be outdated - I need the latest info ... 1. Is it ESSENTIAL to open an xbox to flash the drive firmware. How easy is it? How long does it take. I'm wondering because I don't know whether to buy a second hand unit, or a new and invalidate the warranty... 2. Is the 3 red light problem still an issue with new units? Is ebay a bad choice for getting an xbox because of the possibility of the error arising? 3. Is online play banned now? I've heard a rumor that microsoft have now stopped backups being played ... 4. How essential is the premium package? I'm not after a headset - and the hard drive is only for demo's/save games? Cheers for any info guys ... 3.
