I think I'm cheating on my 360...comments powered by Disqus

No, I don't mean the 'input crazy code' kind of cheating (which, personally doesn't happen enough in games nowadays), nor do I mean the 'modding the console to improve my gameplay' cheating (which happens too often).
No, my 'cheating' is a little more subtle, but is a bit more... unsettling.
I'm more talking about the 'use one console to enjoy the benefits of another console' thing. This is stemming mostly from the 360's hard drive and capability to play MP3 files in-game.
You see, I've been using it to play music from games that were never released on the Xbox console. In fact, the first song I put on there was the theme song of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which I had on CD due to a drama performance I had to do for school 2 years ago. We got to choose a famous person to do a monologue (or duologue) for, and I chose to do one on Mr. Kojima. I got a passing mark for it, too.
Anyway, sometimes playing this music makes me feel a little uneasy. After all, I am perverting this feature to enjoy great tunes from its nearest competitor (Don't kid yourself Nintendo, you know it to be true).
Am I strange for feeling like this? Or is this another case of me over-thinking the situation?
