Console games are usually $10 more. $50 for PC, $60 for 360.

I know a bunch of people with modded 360's too.

Console games cost 70e for Europe (Cyprus at least)... Which is $105... PC games cost around 40e, which is around $60...

yeah, i guess it really depends the people you hang out with. personally i love having things do what they weren't intened. xbmc, rockbox (for ipod), mac os on windows machines, etc, etc. when you constantly tweak and play with the things you have, mod chips are only natural. i won't get into specifics, but quite a few chips have a ton of features (much more than just playing burned/backed up games)

The people I know with mod chips don't touch downloads. They would rather rent the game and rip it themselves, so looking simply at downloaded PC games vs downloaded Console games is not that accurate.

Why waste time and energy with slow, corrupt or bad rips when they can do it themselves.

Please, CliffyB is like JP from Grandma's Boy but probably still lives in his parents house and sleeps in a car bed. When you're that ugly you dont have much choice

Mod chips? lol. Pop open the 360, connect the SATA DVD drive to a PC and flash it. Mod chips are a thing of the past with the 360 LOL.

Thats probably because Dreamcasts ran pirated software without any hardware modification.

To date, one site mind you. But yea I'm sure Cliffy is well aware that the 360 can be pirated, and I'm sure he's aware there are greater risks doing so on the 360 then PC, which is partly what he basis his decisions on I'm sure.

I love my PC and all, but if I were a dev, console first, no brainer.
i said once, and i will say it again. YOU DON'T NEED TORRENTS TO COPY CONSOLE GAMES

thats what blockbuster/game fly etc.. is for. go read xbox specific forums like xbox-scene

My son and his crew pirate like madmen, (average age 20 somethings) when I go over to his pad, it's rather disturbing, the collection that is, which includes movies, music etc. It does look nice tho, all the cases and covers, so at least he is spending SOME money.... When I asked them why, the answer was simple "free", not because of bad ports, or not being on steam, or because of a piss poor game, or any of the arguments found on here, they find the arguments laughable at best. And to waste a dime on renting a game to copy, is pure blasphemy to them. I see your point tho, people with poor bandwidth, or maybe they feel like they are giving something back by at least renting.

My 360 goes under lock and key when he comes around.

Why would people with modded 360's go to EB? They would be home downloading games. So of course you wouldnt meet many people with modded 360s.
