You'll need a specific drive in order to RIP your retail games and now with the newer games, you'll need an ihas 124b, 224b or 524b DVD burner in order to burn them.
Well, that's because you're not "modding" your PS3 you're simply flashing it with a new firmware. All those steps you mentioned are cake, pie, you just need the right guide(s) and yes, you have to spend money to mod your 360 (yes, for all you cheap people who want stuff for free). The 360 scene has far less "drama" due to the fact you have to spend money and learn stuff and it's not handed to you for free. So in the end the people who aren't cheap and want everything for free or are too ignorant to figure out the stuff are left out of the 360 scene. You know, I would like it better if you needed a solder only E3 flasher to "mod" your PS3 - would cut out all of the whiners.
Lastly, good to be back. I was banned for a couple of weeks and this is my first time back on the page since then. I'll try to keep my cool : )
