The Xbox 360 console only plays properly encrypted games and cannot play burnt games or DVDs. However, you can install a mod chip, such as the Globe 360 mod chip, to allow your Xbox to play burnt games or use other "homebrew" content. The version 2 Globe 360 mod chip is a "plug and play" chip and requires no soldering. Even though the Globe 360 mod chip is easier to use than many chips, it still requires careful precision.
