If you wanted a "retail to non-retail hard drive" race... a softmod would win hands down.

Hard mods were cool... in the old days but on the X-box platform they are obsolete and strictly for old timers
You're forgetting the solder less modes so no need for a soldering iron. Just a steady hand.

Soft Moding is a nice idea. But you do need to buy an original game, have a pc, etc. to do it so it's probably more cost effective for people who don't have all of this kit before hand to use a hard mod.
