Microsoft Banned 600,000 from Xbox Live, Aims at 1,000,000

148c17dd40ca8d666b52f5808bc19d94Looks like Microsoft is going to go hard on pirates and modded Xbox 360s. They announced that 600,000 Xbox Live accounts have been banned from North America alone, with more to follow…
The “disturbing truth” runs thus:


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.

    Including ME! Goddam it, I knew modding the console wouldn’t be a good idea.

    Hell the games companies (EA, etc) get far to much money as it is. Pirated games give me much more satisfaction =)
