Default Rumour: Insider says MS Plans to Ban 1M Console

Quote:
A conversation with a friend who works for a call center that handles an Xbox 360 account has yielded a disturbing truth: Microsoft has started its annual Xbox Live banning spree and it has disabled 600,000 accounts so far in the US and Canada.

The target of the banning spree are mainly people who have modified their consoles to play pirated games. My trusty source says that they have been given instructions to push for a million banned accounts by the time the holidays are over.

A friend of mine said he knows two people who got banned last week for having modded 360s. Serves them right.

Hitler would not approve. Only ones I feel bad for are all the people that will be buying used consoles for Christmas only to find it is banned from Live.

Ban the suckers. Between RROD and piracy, I can only imagine the money MS is losing with their console division. Instead of just banning, it would be nice to have some pyrotechnics, like the 360 exploding and taking out the LCD TV along with it...lol

Pyrotechnics would certainly deter people from modding their 360's lol

When you factor in the royalties from selling millions of $60 games, as well as the revenues from XBL alone, I doubt they are hurting as bad as you think.

Also FWIW, I am glad they are banning these people.
