Huh :?



What part did you not understand? :whistling:

Wrong

Modded consoles are allowed, "Backup games" Are not.

suprisingly it's not against the rules to sell them on here.

What u on about ?

Why the interest?

All I ask is, if you see one, report it to a mod.

even if they werent allowed which they are, why would you make a thread asking people to report them?!?

News to me

Just hugely ticked off at people selling banned consoles just cos they got stung for messing about with their consoles, they are the reason games are so expensive.

Its a form of fraud.

Op we should report your posts on the the fs board thread spoiling and trolling.

Banned

But owning a modded or banned xbox doesnt mean there downloading and copying games to play in it (which that is defrauding)

how many people in the uk currently own a modded console? and how does that number compare with thenumber of people using non-modded machines? and what effect has that had on the sale of new games over the last, say, 12 months? just interested in finding out more and you seem to know a lot about it?

they are the reason games are so expensive.



Im against game piracy but this statement is false.

Games are currently not expensive, If you look further back at the N64 and sega megadrive, games cost were are around £49.99 for every release.

They are not more expensive just because of the modded games if you look at the ps3 which cant be modded the game prices are still the same.

While were on the subject anyone got any banned xboxs fs?? im very interested.

Mainly so i can test games before i buy them on my ps3. SO I DONT GET RIPPED OFF shedding £40 on a rubbish game.

If anything the game prices are perhaps cheaper, To try and discourage people from piracy.

Cost to produce a DVD vs a Console cartridge? I suppose if you adjust for inflation etc they are cheaper but there is a higher profit margin.

psp can be modded though. And piracy has been around back to the days of the BBC Micro.

To be honest it was a bad example, these people are in it for the money, why would they not be?

At the end of the day i know i can pick up a copy for around £40 quid, i used to have to spend £50 on a mega drive game. forgetting profit margins and amount of games coming out thats what keeps me happy.

Im just trying to get the point across that if they could stop all modding happening we wont see game prices fall to £30 like what the OP is suggesting. Its the same as fare dodgers. Could you imagine London transport saying this year as there were no fare dodgers instead of hiking the prices we will be discounting. The world doesnt work like that. best thing to do is just ignore it.

Why not just download a demo?

With you on that:thumbsup:

If you mod your console there is a good chance you want to pirate games but I can see lots of ppl buying up these unwanted banned consoles and playing originals - maybe they just want a cheap offline xbox.
