doesn't necessarily have to be all about piracy tho - i've had my xbox chipped for about 1 1/2 years now, so far I've pirated two games: TMNT and Out Run 2 and bought about 50-odd.
TMNT I just deleted after playing for about five minutes because it was rubbish. Outrun 2 I recently bought.

I think the main reason is that I have only got the standard 8GB HD, so there's nowhere to store them. I think that's the trick really, make buying the games a lot simpler that just downloading them and stashing them somewhere. As long as PSP games eventually come down to budget at about 10, I think they should be alright

if there's an old Xbox game I want, I just pop down to HMV and get it for 10, rather than go through the hassle of bittorenting it. It's a lot easier, and it's legal.

Just common sense really, to prevent piracy, just make sure your publishing method is more desirable than piracy...


Foir me the only thing I do on my modded Xbox other then legal gaming is to take screenshots of games, develop emulation code, and play around with DirectX 8. No pirating going on here! So just opening up a system isn't necessarily opening yourself up to piracy.
