When this gets hacked (and it will) 360 piracy will be sooo much easier.
All the more reason to get a 360. Great news!
OMG! Can't wait! I was tired of my 360 doing that much noise from just reading a disc
And 16:10 too! Hell yeah!
Any release date for the update?
Indeed.. this can become an opening for softmod
NOt overly excited about any of it really.
1680x1050? EPIC WIN! And about damn time...
Been waiting for proper VGA support for ages
Proper support for my 22" monitor! YES!
I wonder if the HDD install will work with pirated disks...
Nice to hear finally 16:10 resolutions will be supported!
That conference + this news really make me want a 360. As soon as it's softmodded via the Hard Drive I'm straight onto it.
But if the drive doesn't read in the first place. It doesnt do anyone any good.
You can over-ride that, and place the image files from your PC onto the hard drive. Or at least, we gotta hope we can over-ride the check.
It's our best hope of an awesome softmod anyway.
I think I may buy a xbox 360 when they softmod it
So, it's basically a PS3 now
Hopefully they add support for storing your own video files from a usb flash drive on to the hard drive.
or atleast fix the rrod :/
It's funny how x360 fanboys mocked PS3 users for having to install their games and enjoy quicker load times and now when MS finally adds the feature everyone gets excited about it.
So, somebody installs a game, rips out the HDD and checks it out on the PC, replaces the files with something similar to the PSP and Wii mods, makes a custom disk that the system thinks is installed, and installs an alternate firmware?
But it's optional!
And before the ps3 came out , console users mocked pc users for having to install , but once their console of choice has it , then it's fine. Fanboys of all the consoles are just idiots , when their console has feature X , it's great , when it doesn't it's a useless feature.
Don't think I'll be using it though , I pay good money for my dvd+r dl , so I'm damn well gonna use em .
Also not sure I see the point on the 360 , MS being money grabbing force you to use either a hacked western digital or pay stupid prices for their hdd , and even then only up to 120GB , unlike ps3 where you can use any.
Nice, no more spending money on DVD DL, and having a bunch of discs lying around! I'll sell all my games and buy a 120GB HDD when the softmod it
You can only fit 15 games on a 120GB HDD.
Hopefully this will work with any USB storage device, not just the official overpriced, non-user-replaceable HDD.
Exactly. Well put. Yeah at least sony was smart enough to allow people to use any sata HDD of their liking instead of some crazy over-expensive specialized HDD. I also wouldn't be suprised if microsoft still doesn't allow us to store videos not downloaded from the live store on the HDD even now that it's 60gb.
That was aggrivating the first time I went to put a HD WMV on my 360 and found out I couldn't.
I highly doubt it. That would mean to have an uber-high risk of cracking it in several days from the launch.
They'll probably use an uber-encoded filesystem on their proprietary HDD.
Also, there's little hope in cracking this. The best we can hope is that we can at least copy our backups to the HDD.
Remember that the 360 is still widely unhacked, and a softmod would mean running some sort of arbitrary code on it.
