LucasArts Hacks XBoxen

Just a heads up for anyone silly enough to view DVDs on their modded Xbox; don't watch your new Star Wars DVDs on it:

The new Star Wars bonus DVD erases elements of your Xbox's firmware without informing you or giving you a chance to decline. This is apparently deliberate, as part of an "anti-piracy" effort aimed at punishing people who play the Star Wars DVD bonus disk in a modded Xbox.

...This information can be important for some people with older bioses (booting xboxdash.xbe), people using exploits or simply those who don't want their dash upgraded.

Of course, I suppose anyone who has enough money to have a modded Xbox probably has enough to own a separate DVD player, but that doesn't mean they're that smart.
