Quote:and to load XBMC onto the XBOX1 you have to chip the machine. I seriously doubt most people are going to go to those lengths.
This is not true. (And even if it was, difficulty or having to buy used parts does not change the group you are in)
I have 4 XBOXes at my house all running XBMC. only 1 of these has a modchip.
You can softmod an XBOX pretty easily using 1 of 3 hacked save games and an installer disk.
At that point you can play all of your SD and maybe some 720p right off your network or files loaded on dvds.
You can also install a larger hard drive but this does require a modchip or at least access to an XBOX that is already chipped.
