From the article: "The timing of the statement coincides with the release this week of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," a highly anticipated Xbox 360 game. The game's release means big sales — but also sales of pirated copies, which are illegal."
People BUY pirated software? Wouldn't buying pirated software kind of defeat the purpose of pirating it?
People who mod their consoles should know there is a risk. Hopefully we will get to the point where developers realize that piracy is not a PC exclusive problem.
What is a modded system exactly anyway?
lol microsoft are not suposed to check into ur hardrive its a break of ur code because they check into ur personal data and they are not suposed to
Actualy that how they does to know if ur XBox is chpped or not. they **analyse/scan** ur xbox and check if its chiped or not.
what's sad is all those people that will sale their banned xbox to someone who doesn't know it is banned...or a store that will buy a banned one and resale it...
yeah the sell pirated games and movies. When I lived in Canada, the Chinatown mall in Toronto was notoriously a place to get anything fake or pirated you want. Was hillarious to see them selling a cammed version of a movie that had just come out 3 days ago. The box art was printed off of IMDB and screen stills were on the back.
If you go to some pawn shops in the hood in Cincinnati it is the same difference there too. Anything from cammed or ripped DVDs to fake NFL Jerseys and Nike shoes.
This ban is a double edged sword.
If this does happen, many of them may not go out an buy another XboX. I don't have an extra $300 hanging around to do this.. Plus all of the Live subscriptions lost.... $50 time 1,000,000. Thats alot of money to lose too..
Plus, it makes me think that these leaks were done on purpose lately.
I would say it doubtful that this is bad for their buisness. I would guess that most of those people will just run out and buy another console.
