Hey, I'm kinda an intermediate/noob when it comes to modding but I was wondering what an experienced person thinks about which console is the hardest to mod.

Hands down it is the PS3. The Cell chip has one core dedicated to making sure the other cores aren't being fed hacked code. It hasn't been hacked yet and it probably won't be for years to come...

I think he is asking which console is the hardest to get backups running (out of the ones that CAN be hacked)

IMO, its the 360 if thats what you're asking.

The Wii is easy.
I'd say PSP or 360 (though ive never hacked a 360)

You just said PS3 a minute ago...

Yeah, that was the un-hackable stuff. Now i said the hackable ones

360 difficult? Get real:
dump drive key (usually with nothing more than a compatible sata card, aside from the stuff earlier today simple enough otherwise provided you are willing to pay for hardware)
make hacked firmware (3 clicks or a single command line entry)
flash hacked firmware.

That is all there is- anything in depth is just different models or older hacks. Homebrew is another thing but that is not bad assuming you have a compatible box.

Ignoring the "hard to solder" aspect from some of the older consoles (soldering is just a skill). Personally I am going with the wii; sure any fool can follow a guide and do a hackjob mod that "works for the most part" but to make a truly good mod and do it from any version takes a fair bit of knowledge (this stuff about revirginising your wii reminds me of those who fix PCs mainly by reinstalling the OS, it works but it is crude and only serves to highlight how little they know or how lazy they are).

If not then the original xbox if only because there are hundreds of little things you can do to make it that much better (although out of the box hacks work brilliantly for most people) and several equally viable methods.

Sure, you can emulate it
BUT can you hack it? XD

I assume you mean the Genesis/Mega Drive.

Though it's not really a 'hack' since there wasn't any protection there were a few different backup units for them back in the day (and even small batches of them made by/for hobbyists still today).

But with people that never hacked a 360, it would be hard.
Like me, i would want to know everything about it

the new psp go is almost impossible to hack

not impossible, its just the hackers we have now.
If we had team twiizers, the PSP Go would be fully hacked by now

No, because they hack Wii's.
There's already user-mode exploit for the GO, nothing will come from it though.

Eventually there will probably be a kernel mode exploit that will unlock the PSP Go. I don't think Sony went as thorough on it as they did with the PS3...

PS2 required tons of Wires and the points were really small. I would say PS2 was very difficult to mod...then the WII.
