Huh?!? You don't have to make your own games, but you'd be able to play ones other people make. This can only be a GOOD thing, wether you want to make games yourself or not.

Are you serious? LOL how does some "guy" magically have the ability to sell 360s for $200 and make a profit? No it sounds completely bogus, or he stole them. Where did you find this "guy"?
