Then again, everyone wants to play coped (MS- non profitable) games downloaded from 'net - Remember- Piracy funds TERRORISM! HAHAHAHA!
As far as i know mod chips arent illegal like dvd writers arent illegal or video recorders etc !!!
Legally your allowed to back up your games and software ( irrelivent of protection ) ....BUT!!!!! what you do with them is what can be illegal !!!
The Ironic thing is MS leave the places available for the chips to be fitted...This could EASILY be done away with if they wanted to ????
