Kuma’s Thought: Is Modding Really Worth the Headache?

Kuma Wrote:Hi everyone, my name is Kuma and I used to own modded systems. I know, I am giving off that impression of being in an AA meeting confessing my sin. I will not lie to you; I did partake in owning illegally modified systems since PlayStation One. It started when PSone and Sega Saturn emerged introducing me to import titles, but I needed a special chip/disc to play such titles from Japan. We in the gaming community know that most imports are better and uncensored at times. I have to state for the record that I USED to have modded systems, but after the Modern Warfare 3 dropped and Microsoft sent out a firmware bomb to catch those with “Special” systems. The problem I had was the many that were caught was trying to rally for a class action lawsuit. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Culture, PS Vita, PSP, Xbox 360)

Very good read and shows a gamers internal struggles along with their true love of gaming and letting that win out over any diversions.

I will not tell anyone to stop doing mods, but at this point it is not worth the struggle in my opinion.

The only negative I see, is putting in Months of work only to have some hacker come in day one and ruin it for everybody.

Yea now reading some of this article it's about modding consoles not making mods for games.lol

i have used mods since the PS1 era too, my PS2 and Psp are mooded too but since this gen has all this internet things then modding is very limited but the PS3 and 360 are already modded so im maybe get into it too.

That is up to you I just got tired of it all. Unless its an emu for older titles that is the only way I will use it.

Well here where i live games are quite expensive (a 60$ game cost 120 here) so there is no choice really, if i had unlimites kidneys i wouldnt had any problem being legal.

Kratos as I said before it is an expensive hobby to get into but there are many ways to turn a profit from it either tournaments or get into the biz some how. Just an idea.

100% agree with this A+ opinion article! BTW thank you for calling it "modding" not "hacking". Just because you chip mod or slap a modified battery in a handheld and run some software doesn't make you a hacker.
