Cracking XBox

Today, my friend told me that he had somebody crack his XBox for 150 RMB.

There is already some venders in Shanghai to crack XBox for people. It takes about 2 days and cost 150 RMB (about 20 USD).

After that, all kinds of piracy disks are open for your selection. The original disk costs 49-59 USD, but the pirated disks cost only 25 RMB.

Update Buying an XBox in Shanghai December 26, 2003

To answer your question to get an XBox in Shanghai, I have discovered a small shop with XBox in stock.

Room 339, Pacific Computer Shopping Mall, 1117 Zhao Jia Bang Rd. Shanghai

3rd Floor of Exit 10, Xujiahui Metro Station

Mobile:13601833873

Tel:63908171

Information source: Their Advertisement in Metro Station

I visited the store. They are selling the model on the Hong-Kong’s market. It is sold at 1750 RMB

  1. This is so sad. How’s it different from stealing?

    If you’re a broke student like me and want to save some money, you can buy used games from auction sites etc.

    Piracy is just not right.

  2. It’s stealing if you were going to buy the game, but decided to get the pirated version because it was cheaper. If you never intended to buy the game in the first place, getting it on the street doesn’t deprive the game maker of any revenue. And in China, few people intend to buy games at 50 USD.

    Besids, how’s buying a used game from an auction site any different than buying a pirated version? If you buy used from a third party online, the game maker does not get a penny of revenue, just as if you were to buy it from a street vendor selling a pirated version. The only difference is that some third party gets to make a tidy sum.

    I’m not saying theft is good, but it’s ridculous to suggest that digital piracy is equivalent to traditional theft. If the game maker doesn’t lose money, there’s no harm. And if there’s no harm, there’s no foul.

  3. It is bad. I have my own XBox machine and my genuine XBox disks – 7 of them. I believe I am among the very few persons in China with both geninue games and machines. Hehe.

  4. Can anyone tell me where I can buy an XBox machine and games for it in Shanghai please. Thanks. Oh, and the pirated ones are fine by me!

  5. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. Can you give me a ballpark figure of how much I should pay for it, and how much I should pay for the games? If you know. Thanks again, I’ll head there this weekend.

  6. I wanted to let all xboxers know that the store in the Underground Metro Shopping Mall of Xujiahui Metro Station refused to sell me an xbox because i am american. obviously i think that is sick. his price was high, as i learned when i bought my xbox. there used to be a whole street of game console vendors near Dongfang station, but they have relocated. i will post their new location as soon as i can find them.

    let’s not support anti americanism, there is enough of it already.

  7. I have no idea. You have to keep it in mind that XBox does not sell on the China market. All the XBox you buy here are sold illegally. They often get it in Japan and ship it to China to gain higher margin.

  13. i see nothing bad to ship a playstation2 console to nigeria i mean it is rediculous not to ship to nigeria

  14. I have been searching for online sites to buy and ship to Nigeria. My greatest surprise is the reluctance or refusal of most shops or businesses to ship to Nigeria. There are still some honest , genuine people from Nigeria.

    Companies and online shops should device their own methods to beat the fraudsters and provide an option for people with money who want to do business.

    I would rather have the deduction made from my account or credit card before shipping, I think on the part of businesses that have suffered in the hands of “419 ers” and Nigerians willing to shop online this is a fair suggestion.

  20. Y’all had best beware of this “buy and ship to Nigeria” people. Its a hoax. The moment you pay, your money is so gone and the person disappears into thin air. They could even set an initial proposition where they actually deliver to make u all comfortable with making payments and the moment y’all make the payments, bam! They disappear, No Xbox, No money!!!

  21. I would like to make an order for playstation 1 and 2 1 each to be delivered to a friend of mine in Nigeria.

    I would want you to calculate the shipping cost , I would like to pay with credit card
