Can you take screenshots of XBox 360 games?
The question’s probably enough — but can you take (in-software/hardware) screen shots of arbitrary XBox 360 games, and if so, how? Also, if you can, how would you get the image off the 360 and onto, say, your computer?
(Currently, I resorted to snapping an actual — bad — photograph of my TV screen.)

I use a slingbox and FRAPS to record game play and take screen shots. It isn’t a great solution for everyone (a bit pricey) but it does what I need. I’ve heard of other people using a HAVA in conjunction with FRAPS.
I have used a program/hardware called Pinnacle Dazzle. It records video and can take screen shots but it costs a good amount of money.
It is a little extreme for just taking pictures because it has video editing software included, but is an option. Its a very nice piece of hardware.
If your TV has a signal output, you could just record it to a DVR or something and come back later for the screenshots. I use an rewritable so that I don’t waste dvds. Simplest solution to implement since I have a DVR
I know you are looking for arbitrary games, but some games such as Halo or Skate allow users to take screenshots at certain times or for certain features of the game.
