Flash the 360s drive for one. You have to take it out, which I'm pretty sure voids the warranty, hook it up to a sata port on your PC ( if you don't have one I'm pretty sure you can't ) run like Slax or some **** and go through this whole process of reflashing your drive's firmware. Then you have to get DL dvd disks and burn them correctly. I read that anything less than high quality DL disks tend to not work. I've only done it once but from what I recall that's pretty much it. The chance for bricking your drive is somewhat high if you don't know what you're doing.

usually to run any kind of copied/burned video games you have to mod the console...

Just some basic info since it sounds like you are not going to bother with it:

Making copies of your games is actually harder than downloading a 2nd copy of any games that you have on the XBox360. It requires a special drive to read the disc and a special drive to burn the disc. You need to flash the burning DVD drive with special firmware as well as flash your 360s DVD's firmware. I didn't have SATA ports but I bought an PCI SATA card and it let me do it.

I have never copied a game on the Wii so I cannot help you with that but burning a game is fairly easy. You do need to put a chip in your Wii so that it can read the burnt game. If you have the right version Wii you have to solder 5 wires. If you have the wrong version Wii there are like 30 wires you have to solder. I searched high and low to get the correct version. The wires you have to solder are pretty small. I pulled the traces off a couple of them and almost screwed the pooch. My Wii likes to lock up from time to time and I think it is due to the screwed up soldering:

Yeah, it'll void it, and if you play live the odds of you getting caught/banned are pretty decent since the latest patch from what I've been told.

And I do know you can fry your drive pretty easily trying to update the firmware.
