    Xbox 360 Hacked

    A Hacker under the nickname SeventhSon has discovered a method to alter both the DVD key and game region code on Microsoft's Xbox 360, at least for the Hypervisor exploitable 4532 and 4548 kernels. A great part of this hack also involves desoldering your Xbox flash chip something that only the technologically handy will try.

    No! The games are region locked, ie a US/NTSC game will not run in a PAL/Europe system. This hack allows you to play any region of game in any console ;) (obviously the 360 has to be flashed with the Xtreme firmware 1st)

    I was gonna ask the same thing. Im a little bit somewhat hesitant to do anything to my 360 or for that matter, PS3, to allow burnt games or other regional games to be played on them. Unless you can read japanese and german and all that stuff, no since in playing PAL games, except perhaps if England gets one we dont
