Sounds like he wants to rip off the developers of the games instead of 
paying for them for their hard work.  Thats what 'mod'ding a console does, 
also XBox, don't know about the 360,  though MS will ban the box if they 
catch you.

I also have a friend who doesn't play online,  he only uses the free Silver 
service for the 360.
