Maybe it's just a bad picture. Could just be all the glare making it look bad to me.
this one is similar with a chrome finish.
you can fully customize
it's expensive but you can save money by ordering parts and assembling it yourself like I did.
Confirmed: Microsoft introducing XDG3 disc format.
the discs will now be written on the edge where it was not able before, the whole surface of the disk, and in the inside where the bar codes are around the ring, will be implemented the info of the game. that itself can't be reproduced without the necessary equipment from the replication plants. this is possibly the end of piracy.
I doubt it. Some enterprising hacker will figure out how to crack it. They have the hardware needed to read it, it's just a matter of finding keys/encryption codes.
read but not write. no burner can write to those sectors.
pirates are less optimistic lol
Read and run from iso or a folder. Can't burn discs for ps3 either, so they extract the game to a folder.
I don't think the average person who can't even build a PC is going to disassemble their XBOX 360, solder resistors and diodes to the motherboard so they can JTAG it lol
The average person doesn't pirate 360 games.
PS2 piracy was no different in the beginning. It took soldering and such, yet it was successful. Average people did not do it. If the average person decided they wanted to pirate, they either learned to solder, or they paid somebody else to do it for them.
Same with the Wii.
This will be no different. We will now see an influx of mod chips instead of soft hacks.
you can only JTAG certain Arcade models and you can't play online.
That doesn't stop people. And mod chips don't need the factory firmware. Most mod chips emulate the factory drive's security protocols. No need to touch the factory firmware at all. Completely invisible to the factory software.
Trust me, it is not the end. It never is. An exploit will be found.
Cue SONY releasing a DVDRW that burn to that section of the disc
Ikaruga fans rejoice!
I can't view the page at work Is it about a new updated version being developed?
watch the video when you get home. I have to go lay down
im getting 1 xbox 360 soon but i have this problem..
i wanna connect it to my monitor (viewsonic 23" fullhd 1080p DVI/VGA) so no hdmi and knowing that the xbox only have A/V and hdmi i wanna know if I can reproduce it separate both plugs. I mean have video signal hdmi(hdmi-dvi adapter) way and Sound for A/v. please advise???
xbox supports VGA output with stereo audio (and SPDIF optical) if you get the right add on cable. i think that if you use HDMI, it locks the audio to that. not sure.
Nope, I have my 360 Elite connected to my TV via HDMI, but I also use an adapter that gives me an optical connection to my amp and a stereo output to my Turtle Beach X11s. So if I turn the TVs volume down I get the audio through the headset only
Just thought I'd comment on the whole piracy thing. Slims are now cracked.
all they did was flash the ROM..
Yep, but at totally the wrong time
You can use an audio adapter for use with hdmi that goes into the AV port on a 360 but it doesn't let you use the component and hdmi at the same time because its too big to fit while the hdmi is in. So just burst open the case of the component cable and use its optical port, just a ghetto hack.
Haven't used the 360 in ages still have a spare HD-DVD drive to get rid of. Picked 2 up really cheap with tones of movies last year. About 20 in one shoebox with more duplicates spare.
yeah, I gave my only spare optical adapter to a friend, then needed one for my son So I did a ghetto mod to an old component cable
