Hardcore Gamer: Dead Space 2 Review

2011 starts off with a monumental bang, as one of the most anticipated games is finally released. Of course I am talking about the sequel to Visceral Games’ critically acclaimed Dead Space that was released over two years ago. Isaac Clarke is back for more necromorph slaughter, but this time with more personality and a lot more face time – literally.

Backing up games is pretty easy but reading the backup copy can be a bit tedious.
Turn on the Xbox 360 console. The game disc you want to make a free backup copy of should be inserted.
Scroll up to the "My Xbox" section of the Xbox Dashboard. The first icon should say "Play Game Name" and have a picture of the game. Do not select it.
Press the "Y" button on the controller with the "Play Game Name" icon highlighted. This will open a new menu.
Select "Install Game" from the menu. This is the option to make an Xbox 360 backup. A prompt will appear to select a storage device.
Select the Xbox 360 hard drive. The console will automatically back up the entire game disc to the hard drive. This will take about 10 minutes, depending on the size of the game.

A backup of a legally owned Xbox 360 video game disc protects the original from being harmed during use. You can make your Xbox 360 able to read backup game discs, even though the operating system has been crippled to keep this from happening. You will have to partially disassemble the Xbox 360, voiding the Microsoft warranty, to remove the DVD drive and connect it to a Windows-based computer. You will then use software created by Xbox enthusiasts and a solderless mod chip assembly. The procedure is straightforward but is involved and requires two to three hours to complete.
The complete procedure is explained here in this manual.
