I would like to add to your comment, what I have been saying through this entire thread, but some people just don't seem to be able to grasp
On consoles, it is impossible to use any "burnt" disc for games, so this limits the ability of people to write their own games, or games written by
other people freely available for download on the internet, this is called homebrew, it was "brewed (wrote/coded)" at someones home.
I myself wrote a Mortal Kombat II style clone featuring my friends, which got a barrage of giggles at drinks night.
A lot of people who have the ability to make these games, or who want to play these LEGAL games do not know how to mod their console (I do thankfully)
to do so, so they take it to someone who does.
YES, a lot of people have them modded for pirate games, but not everybody, and those who do do it for illegal purposes will never play on Xbox
The people who should be punished are the people who sell pirated games for a living, not the person who mods the console. The console has been
bought, Microsoft have made their money on that front, wheres the problem?
