I would lean towards yes, that is probably a DMCA violation because all of that hacking and modding is intentionally circumventing the copy protection mechanisms built into the X360. But without specifics, it's hard to say with certainty.

No. Even if it was possible, it would be illegal. Nobody wants an angry bill gates rolling up on you fbi style.

LMAO!! The post on this thread saying it was near impossible to get a pc to perform like a 360 were from like 4 years ago. Now, obviously a 360 is nothing compared to what we have.

The only legitimate reason beyond the hardware security mesures would be that the 360's IBM CPU is Power PC and not X86. There are emulators for X86 on PowerPC but not PowerPC on x86. I guess the overhead would be huge. Unless the would be some way to precompile the game data into x86 instead of on the fly but then you might as well just play the games natively on PC.

You can always take the cd drive out of the xbox and hook it up in your pc. Good luck doing it though.

Can you now? I see a few people saying this, but have NEVER seen it. Personally I don't see that as very believable, considering the other hardware at work here. It would take a helluva lot more than just what you said.
