Hacking for the XBOX is far more than just for piracy. I have my XBOX and PS2 chipped and I always buy the actual game and then just play backups and keep the original sealed so I don't have to risk scratching them, especially with expensive import games. And for the XBOX there is so much good homebrew software. These people aren't just doing it to piss off Microsoft and make money, most of these people don't really make much money. My modded XBOX is almost better than my PC. I use it to watch video files, store my music on, run emulators. The hacking is very much for the better.
