I.C.E. chip a scam, real modchips on their way

Posted by Xavier Ashe on January 13, 2006

Well … in fact the article from team xecuter is mainly about one of the 'hot' discussions currently in the scene: the Team I.C.E. 'modchip' for the Xbox 360. Xecuter(info) received an email (which we received too) from Divineo giving even more reasons to think this modchip is fake:

The
360 chip is 99% a scam, we had booked tickets to go meet them, we were
ready to make huge prepayment and more after we meet the guys at their
office and see the working X-Box 360 with back-ups they 100% confirmed
they had and it was no problem to show etc. Now at last second they
cancelled, with some lame reason, those guys are scammers I really
believe. They did the same to Xenium(info), backed off and changed completely what they said.

You might have noticed we ignored anything related to this chip so far here on the news (it's of course heavily discussed on our forums).
The reason is very simple, I think most of our visitors trust our news
for this type of information and we don't want to give attention to
fakes/scams (good or bad news it's all publicity). So just like we
don't post about fake bootdiscs, videos and alike (posting such things
will just motivate even more people to do similar 'jokes'), new teams
announcing a new modchip concept will have to provide enough proof (so
no fake pictures, impossible OS features and what-not) or support from
trusted teams/people/shops before we'll post about it.

Anyways (damn, now I still ended up talking about that chip on the news) … what I wanted to post about is that team xecuter re-confirms
that real 1st-gen modchips are coming in a reasonable amount of time to
the Xbox 360, taking the doubt away from some people that they were
referring to the 'thing' above in their previous news post:

We
can assure you there will be more than one type of mod available from
different groups in the coming weeks/months – just be patient.
