    I'm slightly surprised they don't have anything setup to transfer your data from one HDD to another, especially when still covered by their own warranty.

    Assuming Sony doesn't screw things up with unnecessary DRM, that's one plus the PS3 easily has over the 360. Since the main memory card slots are their own Memory Stick Duos, it would be a piece of cake to transfer your data onto a card, and download it onto your PC. There are ways for doing it on the 360, but it requires a couple extra steps or parts.

    The downside is, they could also make it so you are notable to transfer certain file types (game saves, game downloads, etc.) from the system to a PC.

    You can, but only about a third of the games are "compatible" at this time.

    When you modd regular xbox you have to solder (even when you buy the modd usually it does say solderless modd but you have to put the wires on the motherboard anyway) 2 wires into motherboard nowdays, or flash firmware.If you do flash firmware there is no way of going back, you cant go to XBOX LIVE.

    360 works different, you are not soldering anything, you are flashing your dvd drive.You take everything out (you need quick connection kit around 30 bucks) connect it to the kit and then connect it to your sata on pc.Before that you have to make bootable MD-DOS floppy, and copy few files over there so your computer in DOS can detect the xbox dvd rom.When its detected you flash the firmware and you can add few addons like stealth protection.You are burning the game (also every game is stealth protection patched just to make sure) with clonecd DVD+R DL at 2x speed.Thats about it.If MS starts detecting it on XBOX LIVE ( so far they didnt) in a few days there is new firmware available and once again it takes them 6-9 months to repond back heh.

    I remeber 6 years ago or even longer when i bought my JVC standalone dvd player and it would play only DVD's region 1 and everyone kept telling me i cant do anything about it.I had tons of dvd's from Japan and Europe so i started looking around and found one company and they were selling modds to get rid off that Region 1.I soldered it in and w000t it was working.You can bend everything if you like as long as you own it, its yours, you payed for it and if i decide to put my 360 into microwave then i will do it.Is it illegal? Hell NO.
