JUST IN: Microsoft Bans Up To 1 Million Xbox Live Users

Anywhere between an estimated 600,000 and 1 million players who use Microsoft’s Xbox Live gaming service will be cut off from the service because they have modified their game consoles or played games that were illegally downloaded from file-sharing sites, according to the company.

“All consumers should know that piracy is illegal and that modifying their Xbox 360 console to play pirated discs violates the Xbox Live terms of use, will void their warranty and result in a ban from Xbox Live,” Microsoft said in a statement Wednesday.

Microsoft representative /spokesperson was reported to have said,

In line with our commitment to combat and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our LIVE community, we are suspending these modded consoles from Xbox LIVE.

The guilty gamers found, upon revving up their consoles, that  that their accounts have been totally revoked from Xbox LIVE. The Spokesperson from went on to discuss the fact that these actions would not only result in banning of accounts, due to Xbox LIVE terms of use violations, but that it also violates the users warranty.

Argh!Lesson be learned that big companies such as Microsoft do give a darn about violations of their  agreements and piracy and they are coming to hunt ye’ down!

  1. This is quite interesting. Too bad for the gamers with mods. I wonder how Microsoft found out, quite a bit of skill.I probably wouldn't get these mods for 2 reasons, one because i don't want to mess up my xbox and two, i dont even know how to install them
