A website is touting a mod chip for Microsoft's Xbox that could allow users to play copied and unsigned games on the console as well as region-locked DVDs.
The chip is easy to install and will soon be on sale through Chinese dealers, according to its inventor's home page.
A statement on the site says: "If you think buying a mod is expensive, make your own homebrew.
"If you can't do that, and still bitch about money, you shouldn't have bought the console in the first place if you never planned on paying $60 for your games."
The modders claim that they are now concentrating on PlayStation emulators for the Xbox.
