I think it's a great idea, sneaky tactics are needed when thieving gits are involved.

That doesn't make sense.

If English isn't your first language I apologize.

It is good news to know that MS is not backing down in the fight. It is not like they could do much last gen, so why hold back this gen?

So glad that they don't make a fuss about these security updates that don't have much else. Also glad that even with these featureless security updates, they still treat us to awesome feature packed updates like the upcoming Metro UI update.
My favourite update so far has to be the update that brought us full disc installs.

YOU BEEN BANNED :D LOL right before the holidays. Will pirates and modders ever learn? Now they have to spend another $200 for a modded console only to be banned again in 6 months.
