If you really want to get into that business, then look up "emulators". These are environments that run on a machine to enable you to play games as you would on the console. I know there was plenty for PS when I messed around with them, but I am not sure about XBOX360 games. You should look around that arena though, you might get an answer there.

Why what's wrong with buying the consoles? They are relatively cheap to buy - and you can get them all used now since they have been out forever.

Yes thats call emulators. with the help of emulators you can mount your console cd to your pc. but it not support the new console cd like x box and ps3 because it need high graphics and so now a day you cant play the new game but you can play old ones.
