NME-360 Chip Released to the Public

Team Underdog has been really busy lately updating their site with FAQs and installation diagrams. It figures, the team is now ready to unleash their much-talked about NME-360 chip to the public.

The first batch of this "first real modchip for the Xbox 360", which will let users patch the Microsoft console's DVD firmware on the fly (meaning no flashing required) only when needed (that means it turns off when you're on XBL), has just been shipped to resellers.

I can't wait to void my warranty!

It lets you run a "back up" copy of a game disc.

i hate modders, especially online modders. Sad little dorks that ruin the game for everybody.

JPomper6348d ago

Well, Paul.. I can understand hating modders that ruin online games, but it seems that this chip "turns off"(whatever that means) when you connect to XBL. A nice feature that hopefully let's you play unmodded 360 games online.

All I know is I'm not f#cking with the inside of my 360.

I hope Microsoft waits a few months till these people sell lots of chips. Then install something that detects the presence of a mod chip when online or offline; then brick any 360 that has being mod. It would be very funny; to hear people go crazy about this. Plus since all these people voided their warranty they have no option than to buy another 360 (which is good for Microsoft).

Valve Made Left 4 Dead 2 Because The First Game Was A Broken Mess

Left 4 Dead lead Chet Faliszek describes the original Left 4 Dead game as "such a broken thing that nobody wanted to touch it."

And then couldn't be arsed to make a third game.

If they can add a lot more stuff to a 2nd game in just 1 year why didn't they make a third game a few years later with tons of stuff extra? Because that shows they could've.

I know Source 2 was kind of broken and was a reason they cancelled L4D3 but it seems wasteful to just toss it away.

Don't know what Valve were thinking.. it's like nobody wanted to fix the issues to get going. They certainly aren't the Valve of 2004 that released fun games with pretty cutting edge graphics.

Valve is allergic to number 3 it seems. It would be easier for them to release a Left 4 Dead 2.5 enhanced version instead of releasing a game with "3" slapped on its title.

They stopped making games a long time ago. Steam brings in so much money that it's really not worth the effort. Nowadays, people only look for faults in games, and spend more time whining on Twitter/X than playing the game anyway. Valve says a big fat no-no.

Value is the Blockbuster of video games. They have no need to invest in deving a game, when they can make handfuls of cash renting them.

What are they talking about? Seemed pretty alright to me at launch it just wasn't supported the way Valve promised us

They should have just worked on a revamp / massive update to the game but they didn't they jumped straight to a sequel with brand new characters despite having some sort, if small, story about where the original survivors were heading.

I didn't care for the direction they took the sequel, the original games tone and atmosphere was missing in the second game and is still unmatched. Daytime levels, more whackiness, melee weapons where you could attack a Tank with a frying pan...just wasn't the same to be honest and the new survivors just didn't hold up the originals.

Here's my speculation. I think they did a sequel because they didn't want to update a game co-developed by Turtle Rock, they wanted the franchise to be known as a Valve game only and knew if they updated the first one Turtle Rocks name would still linger on it.

I want broken games like L4D all day long...

Well the first game was by far the best
