With the recession restricting spending power, committed gamers are turning to unorthodox methods of obtaining free Xbox 360 games. Although some of the actions referred to in this article are dubious or even illegal, one can understand why gaming fans go to such extraordinary lengths to pursue their chosen hobby.
Perhaps the number one thing considered by Xbox owners looking to slash the cost of their gaming is to perform a hardware “mod” to the console. This is something explained in various places on the internet but it is not recommended. Although it will cause the Xbox to change its behaviour, allowing play of illegal copied discs, the modification is very much frowned upon by Microsoft and your warranty will be invalidated.
Anyone who does go through with an Xbox “mod” has the option of downloading free Xbox 360 games from websites easily found using Google. But, aside from the fact that such downloads are illegal, these websites are often used to infect users’ computers with malware and viruses of all kinds. Therefore any gamer should be very wary of using these websites.
A much better bet is to sign up with legitimate websites that offer free Xbox 360 games as rewards for your loyalty. You will have to try out some subscriptions and trial offers in order to generate the necessary rewards, but at the end of the day you can rest easy that the free games you will receive are one hundred percent genuine, not counterfeit, and you will not fall foul of the law.
