Buying games for your xbox 360 can be a costly task and when you do buy them you run the risk of scratching or damaging your games meaning you either have to buy another one or borrow it from your friend next door!! but there is one other option thats has become very popular amongst the gaming community (thats if you don’t have a moral conscience).
Gamers or Hackers as they are more commonly known have been able to develop software to download xbox 360 games!! What this means is that people can now for a small fee download games for their xbox 360 using a program like napster. However these games need special third party software to run them. This software is called firmware or customized firmware that can play Xbox 360 games that are burned to a disc or downloaded from the internet into hard drive. They can come in .iso or .zip format depending on what you prefer. The Xbox 360 is usually flashed (reprogrammed) so it can play these backup xbox 360 games on the fly as they describe it.
There are many sources the internet today that provide services like this for other consoles like the PSP or PS2 where you can download games and burn them onto disc. The providers allow unlimited access and fast downloading too for exclusive memberships. But what sets them apart from the rest is that the service requires a one time fee and access is granted for a life time to their servers! There are some many resources and options available to people these days for backing up their games and the best thing about it is you save lots of time and money!
