For PS2 and XBox, I was thinking about using the Boot Disc/Slide Card method (is there one for XBox?). However, I don't know if I wan a boot disc or mod chip, and before I choose, I need to know the answers to the following questions as they apply to each method.
1. Will this void my PS2/XBox's warranty? Will Sony/Microsoft be able to tell I've used a Boot Disc or Mod Chip?
2. Can I play burned games online?
3. If not, can I use my original games to play online after I've used the Boot Disc or Mod Chip? Or does using a either of these methods leave a permanent mark somewhere in the system that would allow Sony/Microsoft to see I've used a Boot Disc or Mod Chip when I try to connect to an online game? (That DNAS stuff for PS2 and the whole XBox Live for XBox).
I seriouly want to use this for legit reasons, I already lost one copy of Halo to my brother scratching it, I don't want it to happen again. So basically just tell me how each method applies to the question (i.e. Mod Chips will leave a mark on your system, boot discs will not [I think that's how it goes])
Edit: My PS2 says SCPH-39001 on the back and my burner only burns DVD+R(W).
