    LOL I kNEW IT WAS A SHAM LOL  FIRST YOU LOOK UP THE PROGRAM LEGITIMENTLY THEN OH WAIT LOL UMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Anyways i knew it was a fake and its not just at warz sites its at a few  game emuliatar sites.

    emuliating a game to play on your pc is not illigal because you still have to buy the game.

    good example is bleem and a few other legitiment emuliators for pc.

    some have made non profit emuliators so to see a xbox emuliator  for dowen load wouldnt be not imposiable

    there was a saturn emuliator befor the company went belly up.

    but any one knows thers a high risk in that stuff
