Hi, OK I'm a n00b. Les of a n00b than I was 24 hours ago since I successfully dismantled my XBox and flashed with the Samsung Xtreme 52C Firmware. In any case, the first question I want to ask, is this whole backup thing seems so much effort. Even downloading the games illegally is a load of effort - I mean they are huge and take forever to get. So is it really worthwhile to do? TBH from a personal standpoint I am not so interested in playing games. The challenge for me was in hacking the XBox - just as I have hacked (the many) previous consoles I have owned in the past. The fun part is the hacking and making them do things that they are not supposed to do. So all in all I am not likely to be a huge XBox 360 pirate. However given that I rarely play games and that really the person I did this for is my nephew who does play games, can anyone tell me what the easiest methodology for obtaining XBox 360 games is? I guess the simple answer is to buy them - but really secretly, there is an element of doubt to anyone who says they would go through this process simply in order to back up their legally owned games. I'm sure there are a few - and there are always exceptions to the rule, but probably the majority do it in order to play pirated games. That said, my only interest is in finding the best source of prepatched games that simply require burning with a suitable software application. So this begs another question of how common are these games? And also again what is the best source? I have downloaded a few ISO's from bittorrent (again not something I would want to personally repeat too often given the commitment in time that this involves) but each time I have tried (even though I chose region specific/PAL disks) burning and trying to play the games has proved a miserable failure. So basically my question is, given that I really just want to view (even if only briefly) the fruits of my efforts (and that really, odd as it might sound I bought an XBox specifically only so that I could hack it) what is the least stressful and trouble free way to obtain properly formatted game disks - and how can one know for certain whether a game that is being downloaded is prepatched or not? Many thanks for any answers anyone can give.
