    If you want all three of them on a single box, then your only option is dual nand.

    Xk3y on the legit side for playing from hdd and playing online, then RGH on the other nand for emulators.

    Very expensive option. Xk3y will run you £70 ish, dual nand £50 or so, glitch chip for the RGH side £20-30, nand reader £20ish. This is assuming you are below 15574. If it's above that, then you'll also need to add a DGX to your costs to retrieve your cpukey, to allow you to RGH. The one for the phat xbox is not out yet either.

    Emulators aren't great on the 360, unless you want the other stuff RGH offers, probably better just to get an xk3y and forget about emulators.

    If you want to play emulators, buy this thing called a "Personal Computer".

    But seriously, emulation on the 360 is basically emulation on a PC with a capped GPU and a controller (which you can get one for PC anyway).

    RGH would most likely be the best option.

    As for your other question of connecting to Live, I'm not 100% sure. I used to have an RGH'd Xbox 360 but I sold it, so I haven't hacked one since.

    No you can't.
    You can however play on a kind of XBLive with FSD's LiNK.
    It's a build in syslinker for multiplayer over the entire world.
