  1. MS cut their price and the mod chip release is almost the same time, do you think there's something wrong?

    Sure, why not. Of course I also read that they are about to redesign the XBox, actually just going to make it more compact
    (kinda like Playstation did with the PSone) and make it so that the modchips will have to be redesinged in order to work.

    But in all honesty, why wouldn't they do that, it has been speculated that other companies have done similar things to boost sales.

    Of course MS is all mighty and would never do something so underhanded especially since they are the driving force against piracy. <---Sarcasm

    I don't think they would do that unless they are desperate to get a good user base. These companies gain more from Game sales then machine sales so releasing a mod chip would really take a bite in that profit.

    Now we have to understand that we're talking about MS here. They are willing to go really low in order to get what thay want.
