Microsoft Dropping The Ban Hammer

This is just a little Public Service Announcement from your friends.  If you are planning on using a modded Xbox 360 to play pirates games stay away.  Microsoft is on the look out for people not complying with the modded console requirements, this will not only lead to a ban, but the said console will banned for life.  So if you buy a modded console don’t plan on getting online with that console ever!  I know most of us would never think of doing such a thing but beware of the consequences if you do, also make sure if you buy a used console from someone that that console has not been struck by the Ban Hammer.  Here is what Major Nelson had to say:

As you may have read online, we’ve been actively banning consoles from Xbox LIVE that have been modified to play pirated games. Our commitment to combat piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox LIVE community remains a top priority. 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. The health of the video game business depends on customers paying for the genuine products and services they receive from manufacturers, retailers, and the third parties that support them.  This would also be a good time to remind you that the warranty on an Xbox 360 console is not transferrable and if you purchase a used console that has been previously banned, you will not be able to connect to Xbox LIVE.
