XBOX users get the 411 on what they need to know about pirating and buying a used XBOX. Microsoft is no longer playing games.
microsoft should just cut their losses and quit. no point milking their fan base and making losses while they are at it.
Would they quit when they are doing so well? That's just senseless.
when they are already deep into the game? that's ridiculous because it's still an open game for all 3 console makers IMO! I would love for M$ to stay for competition sake!
That's 600,000 people who are now gonna jump to the ps3 way to go microsoft...haha
Thats 600,000 people who are now gonna jump to the ps3,not very smart microsoft great for sony though
It's not like loosing those gamers will hurt MS. Those are the ones who STEAL and sale STOLEN games anyway. If anything they'll make more money...or just loose less. Who wants pirates playing online and cheating anyway? I say Fck em.
Unless the PS3 is easy to mod, which I don't think it is. So what would be the point? Also, who's to say that the people with modded 360s don't already have PS3s anyway?
They not going to jumb ship. They're going to buy an arcade model and try newer mods to avoid detection. What people don't understand is that a person trying to circumvent the rules will only be looking for other ways to circumvent those said rules.
Besides, if Sony is selling their console at a loss (and it was possible to pirate PS3 games)then this isn't the kind of customers Sony want. Basically, pirates aren't contributors, but more like parasites!
How many time stupid pirates can do that, isn't like a lot of money they're loosing with all crap-mod they do, asking cuz don't have any idea of this This GEN is the beginning of the end for B*atches pirates!!!! Muahahahaha!!!!!
that would interest me on the 360. Glad i have the superior ps3 though :)
"One does not simply walk into Microsoft. It's black doors are guarded by more than just fanboys. There is evil there that does not sleep. Bill Gates is ever watchful. It is a barren building, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly." ROTFLMAO!!! That was priceless and being I am a LOTR fan I have to say that was genius!!!!
You have to be a blind @$$ fanboy to slap foul on MS for the massive ban wave. The fanboys of the sony system will love to point out all the faults of the 360 and how the security was able to be hacked. But lets not forget that the PS3 has been hacked to an extent to run linux, bigger hard drives, I've heard of roms being ran on the system....the only thing that the PS3 has covered is that fact that the PS3 games can't be pirated...and who would want to download 35gb of data and pay 10 dollars for the blank disc? No one. MS was being taken advantage of for years by the pirates...billions of dollars gone from their pockets and developers pockets...the pirates laughed and enjoyed many months of free gaming...early releases and online play without scrutiny. Now that MS has responded in turn everyone's calling foul....well I would like to call bull$h!+ because that's exactly the reasoning people are using to attack MS for reclaiming control over their service. Pirates are lucky getting their consoles banned was the only reprieve from MS. And that whole thing about loosing the ability to install games on the hard drive etc. Well you got that update from xbox live when you were breaking the TOS. MS has the right to take back their software and leave your console as it was when you purchased it from the stores. If your banned count your blessings the feds arent at your house confiscating all the crucial evidence to lock your @$$ up for 2-5 years and a hefty 6 figure fine....L.I.G. LET IT GO!! Modders got off light IMHO
Gamedibs would like to do a follow up interview with Microsoft with community questions... so if you all have any questions you would like to put forward please reply and let us know or email [email protected]
lol a guy came to my house to trade me his 360 and I plugged in the ethernet cord...and BANNED, it was. I felt like breaking out a violin and playing a sad song for the guy, lol. He went home with his banned console. What an idiot lol.
so what people have to do is not mod the xbox so it wont get banned and they wouldnt have to buy new consoles
This is not the Real Deal on the Bans' this is just a site looking for hits.. It does not offer any more info that has already been hashed over and over..
I've owned 2 modded consoles in the past, but I've never had a pirated game for any of my consoles. I modded my first console so I could play xenogears (hadn't been released in UK). Second console was modded when I moved from US to Aus, and need to get a new one after the shipping company dropped my US model and I had to buy and Aus one, which wouldn't play any of my US games or dvd's. Current console is unmodded because I've no need to do so, all my games will play on it due to no stupid zones :)
