Please note that the xk3y will not have Key extraction technology. So please only order if you have a way of dumping your original firmware. This is important! Firmware.bin  for fat, and dummy.bin for Slims

Requirements: A dump of the original Xbox 360 DVD drive firmware to configure xKey, you can use TX USB PRO V2  to retrieve it. Check this chart to see if your DVD drive is compatible with xKey. Also, if you are installing xKey yourself we recommend adding the V2 remote display to your order for easy install and usage.



Free shipping over $150 promotion does not apply to install / extraction services. As well, if you order the install service from this page, an additional $7.00 will be added to shipping due to the weight of the console.

i have preordered one its been a wile but im sure it worth the wait, soon ill get it ill review it

Author: alxtz

I pre-ordered my Xkey a while back and got mine last week so im very happy as for all things shipping when dealing with ModChipCentral i am VERY VERY PLEASED. I recieved my xkey one day after delivery which was not ModChips Fault but a delay for UPS. Getting the thing put together was a bit of a hassle as when i just got Revision R7-2 (Newest Hardware Revision) it was a pain in the ass to put together and there were no video's explaining it that day since it had just come out. So i ended up breaking my SD card trying to get it OUT of my xkey's SD card reader. I bought 2, 2gig's though for 3.99 so they are not that hard to recover. Firmware is a very easy installation on the xkey which they now have plenty of videos for the old and new revisions. I started the xkey and the only thing i could find wrong is that the menu ISO does not work as decently as it should because even if you have .iso on the end of your games in lowercase letters (which mind you are the only way to be able to play your iso's) It would recognize the folder but not the iso in the folder, it would merely say it's empty. But honestly using the zkey's remote is much better because it always recognizes all the games with a .iso extension type. Once i got past this Ordeal the games ran flawlessly Batman Arkham City, COD Black Op's BF 3, Hell the boot times are twice as fast! And so because this is from ModChip Central i will be giving them an Un-biased 5 star rating for their support/speed/response time and great product.

The product is amazing! FIrst off, no matter what anyone tells you this x360key is completely playable online. It protects you just as good as flashing your drive, if not better. It is definitely worth the $100 because you know how much new games are these days. Once you get everything setup correctly it runs beautifully! I have been playing MW3 campaign the past 7 hours and the loading times are outstanding. Twice as fast as with the CD. The xkey is beneficial in so many ways, some that you wouldn't even think of. Like now my xbox is very quite because of no spinning cd, it doesn't even heat up that much any more, with the ISOMENU feature I can sit on my lazy ass and switch to what ever game with the push of a button, and with the developers truly caring about their customers, their are weekly updates for things that may protect you from future xbox dashboard updates, improve selecting games, and so much more. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to play all the backups with out any CDs.

Ordered this, set it up and everything went great. I highly recommend ModChipCentral. They are great doing business with.

Author: Roy Cornog

Install went very smooth. One tip, use ext3 instead of ntfs, load times are phenomenal with 2.5 usb powered hard drive. Everything works great. I would highly recommend ModChipCentral. Sent out my package as soon as item was in stock. Answered emails quickly and with a personal tone, not automated. Thumbs up!

Author: Michael G.

I ordered and received in one business day. This is the best investment i've ever made. Very easy to install if you do a little research. 5 stars for modchipcentral and x360key!!!

Author: Brandon

One of the easiest mods on the planet for the 360. Works flawlessly on most external HDD and I have no sluggish load times or anything. The slowest thing on is installing to the XBOX HDD from the external, but the games run PERFECT! Great product and make sure you upgrade the firmware when you get it. FW 1.20 works perfect, 1.21 had glitches for my external HDD but its all good now!

Author: Brandon Whitson

Got mine in the mail yesterday. As every other review states, the shipping time is incredible! Great packaging too! Only a small problem with the order, but the communication was quick and everything was resolved within an hour. I'm already looking at my next purchase from MCC.

Author: Steve

These guys did a great flawless install with no wait time except for snail mail....Once I received my box they answered any questions I had with in the hour and the Xkey also works great. Don't think twice if you want them to install it Saves time and there's no stress .

Ordered on 11/09/2013 it is now 11/14/2013 and the order still has not been shipped i got a tracking number but it still is ready for ups to accept it ... 5 days to ship an item? rediculous im in the US

Author: Joshua Day

Ordered my xk3y on 11/08/13 It shipped out the next Friday expected delivery is Thursday 11/21/13 Apparently they ship them as the xk3y reloaded but still allow you to buy them as xk3y rev 7-2 v1.1 which is a huge disappointment cause I hear there is a ton of problems with the reloaded xk3y. You do not get the xk3y rev7-2 you get the faulty XKR.

Author: Allen Lord

I have just recently bought 5 xk3y reloaded chips...and I have a very good feeling something is wrong with them. 1 of them has now fried both a phat and a slim unit, and now another has just did the same to another slim. Both slims were brand new :-(. I am using the v2 remotes with wifi dongles as well. They chips are fully insulated inside so NOT "shorting" 100%. It was working fine at first, then when quitting a game to the main menu it froze the 360. Won't boot at all now. Anybody else having issues with xk3y reloaded please email me I want to know: rcas.onlne@gmail.com

Author: Ryan Sheen

I bought this two weeks sago doing research, i had two problems one was me being an idiot with dvd key extraction and i realized i needed a probe anyone getting this remember you need this probe, my other problem is i used the long flat data cord and it caught on fire and i have no clue why, but i put the short one on witch is so hard to do on an phat xbox but it works again this is mostly my stupidity but afer i got it to work let me tell you it works like nothing else it plays every iso i have thrown at it, my only complaint is that i feel that the xk3y should offer a bundle to get a usb power splitter but mine works it has slow read so i just install my games i give this product 5 out of 5 stars it will save me so much money now no need to buy new games when i can just go on the pirate bay

Author: brandon conklin

got mines and not very happy it don't work took 3 weeks to get to me without tracking

I had to get a new usb micro sd card reader. The one i was given didn't work what so ever. After buying a new card reader, works great. I would give it 5 stars, but the reader didn't read the micro sd card. Overall great product, can play any game now on 360.

Tried a few different sites - They were overpriced, and told me it would be 2 weeks+ for shipping. Then I stumbled upon modchipcentral - Thank goodness!

They were able to ship right away, cheaper, and the product arrived way earlier than the estimate. Definitely buying from again and recommending to everyone I meet!

Thank you modchipcentral
