loady said:it seems to me that getting a chip = putting xbmc on you box and streaming vids, if all this can be done with a soft mod for free why bother with chips ???
bris said:dude you dont stream anything you chip your xbox and you also put in a bigger hdd (mine has 120gb) then you download xvid's etc and ftp them to your xbox in your sitting room, allowing you to watch films/tv programs from your sitting room instead of from your computer.
Can also download any xbox game and ftp it to your xbox.
thats why so many people chip there xbox.
