    No idea, but from the looks of it xbox scene has better/more cooperative hackers.

    For instance you can go online with a hacked xbox, though it may get banned, but I think they know how to unban them.
    PS3 no psn at all.

    Dont know how often M$ update the firmware, but $ony seem to update it for the sake of updating; even more so with the new US TOS in which you sign away your rights!
    Sign new TOS, send opt out, 1 month later install new firmware update, sign TOS again renewing all of it, have to send opt out letter, 1 month later new firmware update........

    This would be better posted in the xbox section really.

    Xb does update like ps3 but the updates are not as as frequent as they are on ps3. Some games do require that the new dashboard be installed on your xbox and the new 2.0 custom FW in order to play the new releases like gears of war3 and dead island etc,

    You cannot unban a banned console, once banned you stay offline. Microsoft doesn't ban your account, it bans your console ID.
    For newer games you do need newer drive firmware indeed, but that firmware gets released pretty fast. Microsoft just recently started using a new encryption system, but that has already been hacked.
    Normally two or three times a year Microsoft releases new dashboard updates. The last one flashed the drive firmware back to stock, meaning that most users had to reflash (which is about 15 minutes of work, so not much).

    Seriously? I wouldn't even mention that one, as soon as the new hack gets a custom dashboard working for all consoles the Xkey is old iron. It is quite cool, but too expensive and too limited.
