Backing up console games: Modchip needed?

hi, this is slighty off topic, but i noticed people talking about backing up console games on DL media, do you need a mod chip in your system to play the backups?

Split from this thread in the Blank Media Forum


You would normally need a modchip or an alternative boot method for playing backups of console games - even if the game was burned onto DL media.

But at the moment it’s all relative. You need to be a bit more specific as to which consoles games you’re looking at backing up if you want more infomred replies.
