I want to buy a new xbox 360. I found an offer from a shop who sells complete packages of preflashed or premodded konsoles. It is a little bit more expensive then doing it myself but the upside is that they give me a complete warranty for the xbox which is a good thing because of the known hardware issues. They also have bundles including a flashed kreon samsung drive and a pioneer dl dvd burner. I read all the tutorials here and i think i understood how to create backups and stuff like that but i still have one big concern. I really want to use XBL. I have no problem using my original dvds for online play but i want to have backups for the offline play. In my shop they told me not to use XBL with a flashed firmware even if i use the original disc. They told me to buy a modded version like with the Xeno360 or the NME360 modchip. Those modded versions are a little bit more expensive (about 30€). Most of the talking in this forum is about flashing. But personally i don`t care for those 30 extra € because i just want to have a working system without beeing afraid of a ban by MS. So what do you experts advise me to buy. Sorry for my bad english.
