I read just about every forum topic that I thought would address this question, and it seems that the general answer is yes. But there was mention of chipless methods that required soldering or bios-flashing or something where I wouldn't have to purchase a chip. Here's my situation: I have a collection of x-boxes with which I intend to use for multiplayer gaming night and must furnish all the hardware and software. I can't skimp on the controllers, but I can make backup copies of my games to play on each one. The problem is that I can't afford a mod-chip for each box. Is there any solution that would work for me other than saving my pennies for chips?
