I'm debating whether or not to mod my 360. I got my PS2 chipped and played backuped games on that, put in a hard drive, downloaded HD Loader, etc. But all in all, that was fairly simple stuff. I briefly read through the step by step guide to flashing the 360, and it seems to be a bit harder, though that just might be me. So this is what I was wondering. 1. For someone that isn't 'very' tech-savy (but not exactly unsavy either), how complicated is flashing the 360? 2. There's something about a modchip that I just like better, but the problem is soldering them and all that. However, soldering aside, which would you recommend, Flashing, or a Chip? (If a chip, what chip is the best?) 3. What risk is involved with flashing? I like to play on Live a lot, so I don't want to get kicked off or anything. Also, if I'm gonna be playing a game online, will probably actually use an original. 4. The current DVD Burner in my computer is a Dual-Layer Burner, and I was able to make a backup of God of War 2 that worked fine (though the PS2 scratched the disc up to the point of ruining it) So DVD drive aside, about how much will flashing the 360 cost? Thanks for any answers.
