Since the Xbox 360 is eventually going to be discontinued, I was thinking of getting a Xbox 360 DVD drive and buying some exclusives to back up with it to play on a future Xbox 360 emulator. (I know that the current PC's probably won't be able to run a Xbox 360 emu but I am worried that if I wait to long, the games I want will be gone [and I don't like buying used games]) So my question is: Do I need a Xbox 360 in any way when backing up games (Do I need an Xbox 360 to decrypt any games and access the files inside the disk?) Does it matter what drive I choose? (From what I read from the reviews, It seem that each drive has their own requirement in order to make it work with the Xbox 360, but does it matter on the PC?) I rather not buy a Xbox 360, even if it means that I have to wait years for a semi-functional Xbox 360 emu or the hardware to handle it. Forgive me if this asked before; I am just a little confused because most of the guides assume that you are doing this for the Xbox 360.
