Pardon my ignorance, but I haven't modded anything since my playstation about 8 years ago..... so I am a little behind in the times. If there is a thread that explains what I am asking, then please direct me to it. What are the advantages and disadvantages of hardmodding vs. softmodding? I understand some of the basics about being banned from xbox live and such, I am more concerned with the ease of copying games to the hard drive and general functionality. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. My AOL screen name is KtBjR if anyone is interested in chatting on this topic. Thanks!!
