I am getting a 160gb hard drive for my Xbox tomorrow and now I need you guys to tell me what games to rip bearing in mind that I live in the UK. Already Got Ninja Gaiden on DVD R, I also heard that when I rip the games I have to convert a file to a .xbe or summat along the lines of that. Can anyone explain that?

Cheers :D

Uhh, yeah, I'm pretty sure you're breaking a rule by asking that... :ermm:

Unless you own the games, and if you do, I see no point ripping them to the hard drive :huh:

I dont download them or copy them so I cannot answer, but lemme say this theres no way I am ever paying ?40 for a game that I will play for a few weeks ever again. The game industry needs to look at its pricing because even GBA games are selling at ?35 which is just plain wrong. /end rant

The reason why they're selling at such high prices in the first place is because of piracy... ;)

Oh sure thats why the N64 prices were so high? Even back in the days when gaming was just taking off the prices were redicilous (dodgy spelling). Modders dont mod xbox's just to get cheap games, its to get extra functions out of the system ie XBMP.

Exactly! And some games required that expansion pack thingy that if you didnt have you had to buy which cost more money!

use a program like dvd2xbox, this will rip the game to the hard drive. This program also automatically patches the .xbe, so there is no hex editing involved. Very easy. Have with your new 160 hd, i've had one for a while, i need to upgrade (full), im thinking 300gig is next for me. BTW, what kind did you get?

downloading is as simple as a certain newsgroup with xbox in it's name...as far as copying them complex tools is your friend...both presuming you have a modded xbox of course

They are priced so high because consumers are willing to pay it. If you really are outraged find tons of people to boycott a game and watch the price drop. It also costs alot of develop games so that is what you pay for.

make sure it's lockable, if you want to ever play live.

i have a 250gb wd....yeah, it's full...

even if you own the games, it's better to rip. loads faster, and you don't have to mess with the discs.

well from now on, we should keep the discussion limited to backing up originals you own, just to keep it on the safe side.
