Quote: Microsoft bans up to 1 million Xbox Live users

Post by dungbeetle on Wed Nov 11, 2009 8:39 pm

"Gamers who have altered consoles not permitted to use gaming service"

Read more here:

MSNBC Article

Extract:
"the biggest problem in banning modded consoles — and this gets missed by most people — is that it is the console itself that gets banned. So many of these consoles get sold secondhand, even sometimes unwittingly by stores (that) accept them as trade-ins, to people who assume they have just bought a functioning console. And while it might technically boot up, the console is blacklisted and therefore pretty much useless to them."

Hmm. Call me cynical, but that's a good way to kill the second hand console market, from which MS earns absolutely nothing.

I am sure everyone on here realizes this but pass the info along to the unsuspecting folks out there looking to get one cheap. People are selling these consoles as if there is nothign wrong with them and getting good money for them.

The people that end up with them have a console they can't get on-line with.

This is pretty surprising. Considering the fact there's about 12 million or more people who use Xbox LIVE, 1,000,000 is a fairly big number. I always assumed there was only a few people with the modded consoles. I guess not.
