MS has announced that in their Fall 2008 update games will be allowed to be installed on the 360's hard drive. The only cinch is that the actual game will be requested for verification of ownership.

nope, reread the post. You can copy the games but you will need the original disk in order to play them.

It also reduces wear on the optical drive while reducing noise levels. Since I tend to play the same game for a while I don't mind having to have the disc in the console for verification.
