Well, without going into too much detail, an abbreviated (only half or so, I don't feel like instructing people how to do this) list of materials needed to make an XBox rip includes:

a modded XBox (ie: opening your XBox and melting chips and such in there), ISO image mounting software, XBox replacement dashboards, DVD burner, FTP programs and knowledge of using them, XBox specific programs, etc, etc....

It a *lot* more complicated than pirating PC games, and something that a lot less people do. Yes, it obviously can be done, but you're still going to lose less profit on XBox game development than PC because of the difficulty in both ripping the copy and making your own media.

This is a bit more complicated than "stick the CD in and hit 'copy' and there you go" like it is with PC games.
