Bad news, Xbox pirates. (Which, in turn, is good news for the industry as a whole.) Microsoft has dropped the “ban hammer” on several modded Xbox 360 consoles.
There’s some confusion as to whether Microsoft is merely banning the console or the account on the console. Either way, you’re in for a hassle.
This is what Major Nelson had to say about all of this…
As always, the forums are filled with self-righteous “how dare they ban us!” posts. Whatever. If you’re keen to pirate games and dumb enough to have your 360 connected to Live you deserve to be banned.
