I came across this earlier and I wanted everyone to see it, clearly Microsoft's process of appointing Moderators isn't quite up to scratch.
i say they need more of these esp on mw2 besides this vid proves nothing for all we know the poster was glitching like mad prior ta posting this.
That seems so obviously faked. His "capture card" just had to malfunction at that exact time. He could have easily edited the video to make it seem like he banned him.
Well he can't prove that he didn't do things that he really needed to get banned for..
Wow lol. Although the mod was probably in the right and had a legitimate reason to ban the dude - he was a total ass though. Like some punk who is maybe 4ft tall who hides behind their xbox with too much power in their hand. Forward to Jesus? Wtf was that?
Yeah I agree I don't necessarily get what the Mod did wrong I mean sure he shouldn't have threatened to ban all his consoles. But this guy doesn't provide the whole story and the Mod does mention that he did something wrong while broadcasting in justin tv and most people who broadcast there use cheats and glitches. So this is pretty stupid since he heavily edited this why not provide the full story seems he is hiding something.
Look at his channel. He's got a modded xbox so his fault.
Being an Xbox Live moderator doesn't mean your a powerful person. Somebody was bullied is school when they were a kid. But I don't get where he was in the wrong. He was just being a douche.
"Somebody was bullied is school when they were a kid." No, I think this guy was the bully in school. He just couldn't get a job that required the slightest amount of intellect, but still wanted the power to push people around, so he became an xbox live moderator.
this is why gay ass mods should be nowhere on the net.
Only on xbox live. Joking, but i didn't see what the mod did wrong...They sorta provoked the mod if you ask me. He's a jerk though. =p
This is one reason why I prefer PS3. Non of this crap ever happens on there. They don't ban.
fake and gay
No.1 , This video was a set-up. No.2 , You can only find these type of A-holes who make fake shi*s on..... No.3 , Only on XBOX LIVE.
Is it just me or does anyone else think that MW2 vs mode seems to bring out the worst in people? And non gaming friends wonder why I don't use a mic when playing that game. In fact I have gotten to the point that I found MW2 just No fun to play any more! MS needs to review there moderators and make sure there doing what they should be there for.
does it seem like people that are extreme to the 360 defend Microsoft as a company more than they defend Gamers? So many of you just immediately side with the mod and assume the guy did something wrong to get banned are you guys gamers or shareholders?? I talk alot of trash in multiplayer games and if i ever got banned just for trash talking, i wouldnt support the company or its products. As many racist people as it is on XBLA and talking trash is a bannable offense? I dont know the entire story bu talking trash is your right as everyone in this country has freedom of speech. You would think an american console maker would defend this right more than its overseas competition. BTW the Pro was being a di<khead i wouldve got on his case too.
wrong they DO ban
if people want a response, they should be forwarding this to Major Nelson on twitter, email etc. he cant be silent about it if enough people mention it
corrupt lol well that guy must have done something to piss the moderator, if he got baned for trash talking or what ever he did before of well he deserved, and for what it seems the mod gave him a couple of warnings.
You shouldnt get banned for pissing someone off. I dont know M$ terms of service, but just because someone get pissed, that doesnt mean they should be able to ban whomever they want. Mods shouldnt talk like that either. They should be kind. M$ does not want people like that representing their company. Now I do not know what this dude did, but Mods shouldnt always be threatening everyone with the ban hammer just because he can.
lol, this made me giggle I can't picture anything Microsoft as 'kind'
The guy was an arrogant prick, you seriously cannot side with this guy.
Why not? People let MS get away with everything ELSE!
Yeah, but how convienet that we didn't see what the player did prior to the mod. sending him a message. I bet this guy was glitching or using a modded xbox. The mod. seemed to have given him many opportunities to stop whatever he was doing but he didn't. Severs him right.
When did this become a Microsoft debate. This is about a guy getting banned by a moderator. You're telling me that if a cop steals from a bank you will crucify his precinct because of the actions of that individual? I used the cop as a reference because he is an authoritative figure. We don't know the whole story. We saw edited video and have no evidence to what was posted on JustinTV prior to this. I am sure it was a glitch and he was warned beforehand. The mod even told him where he could send his complaints to while mentioning that he was probably being recorded.
And people pay for that.
Did you see how smooth that interface and all that stuff was easy to navigate through and how accessible it is? I wish the PS3 was on point like that.
yes XBL got more content and smooth but PSN is easy to navigate and accessible , its just slow EDIT @Disagree all you want thats the truth
let it go bro, people aren't going to stop paying for it because yo say so. Doesn't Sony make money on HOME selling virtual houses,cloths, trees... If they could get people to pay for PSN they'd do it.
How smooth the interface was? What does that matter when you get banned? Grasping at straws just leaves your hands cut. Also iFLOWLIKEWATER, if you think the XMB is difficult to navigate, add "Palin" to your handle. EDIT: No Trig, I'm not mad :)
You mad son?
"Did you see how smooth that interface" Believe it or not, the PSN interface is smoother and easier to navigate. One of the things the PSN does better despite not charging for it.
Didn't you know. Sony is a not for profit company. They make games and give away free psn because they care about people and don't want to make any money. They are pure as the driven snow. They have never done anything wrong in the history of the company. I think Ghandi and Mother Theresa actually started them. I know that all the executives live in a monastery. There is a huge energy source of light in the ceo office that tells them to give everything away for free, and its only the evil dealings of Microsoft that makes Sony charge for its games and console. Oh wait. Sorry, I have been reading too many posts on N4G lately.
Best believe there isn't nor won't be any type of mod support on the PS3 for free...anytime soon. Why do you think Sony is going to start charging people for certain enhancements for PSN? What you do get for free on PSN is great. But if you think its up to par with what Live offers then you're delusional. I mean, with your statement, condescending in its tone, ask "people pay for this?". Can I easily go to a report system on the PS3 for people that f*ck up my gaming experience? NO.
I especially like the way everything you've played and downloaded are stacked on top of each other in the PS3 interface. With no categorization at all. It quickly creates a very smooth mess. I also love how you can't join the games your friends are playing with one button click like on Xbox Live. It's just so unsmooth.
@Soda 1) Go to Xmb 2) Hit Square 3) ???? 4) Profit!
cpt obvi....I disgreed cause PSN is NOT slow....we have a 5M/10M cable connection and Live, PSN and PC are run fine... I just downloaded the Yak demo and it took < 8 mins... and that was on Sat mid morning..during prime time its on your end.....
I especially like the way that soda has no ps3 so he has no clue that you can just hit square and categorize everything in folders in one second. However he just spreads FUD trying to make it seem like he has one when its obvious the Target kiosk is the closest he's come to playing one. 299.99 isn't that much, buddy. At least buy one so you can bash it correctly without sounding like a jealous fool.
made a fool out of you for making sh!t up?
Soda, that was made of fail. You obviously don't have a PS3 nor used the XMB.
the trolls are out in force today.
Soda isn't going to rear his ugly face in here again. Not after that above me!
I have a question, how does Soda have that many bubbles? He has 5 and I have 1 more than him, kinda makes me sad. :( <-------- (see?) anyway yeah like everyone else said Soda when you go to your friends house and look at him navigate through his PS3 actually look pick up the controller and explore it for yourself. Because when you just glance at it and say it's unorganized or its unsmoothe(not a real word btw)you sound like an idiot.
and he's right. The XMB is damn mess. No it's not as easy to navigate as the 360 interface. You PS3 loyalist think it is because you're used to a clusterf*ck of nonsense. The screen loads every buddy on your list. It has to load in trophies and you can't just click a buddy and have it pop up. Secondly, to get your messages you have to go to RECEIVED instead of clicking the name of the person. You can't join a game by highlighting your buddy and getting sent to their session. Why is their a voice mask? Why are people still throwing around the fact that the PS3 is free. There's a reason it's free...no one would pay for it. I'm glad it it's free, but if they charged more than $20 a year for it...it would stay offline. I like the fact that my Netflix is integrated with my 360, Facebook is accessible w/o having my laptop in front of me, last.fm is like XM radio, and Zune shows new movies, tv shows, movie trailers, and music videos. I also get to try out every game before I purchase it(unlike PSN). I still cant download PS3 games on my PS3. Now they are relasing GAME ROOM on XBL, so you can create your own gaming zone w/ downloaded arcade games(vitual world for your avatar). That's where my $50 is going. Lets see Sony do all that for free
You can send this to Jesus? Ok, firstly. Jesus>Microsoft secondly do you really want to be messing with the the son of god... what next send this to Chuck Norris. The thing is we all know we'd be like him. I know I would, I get corrupt on the smallest amount of power. I once found a Microwave and considered turning it into a weapon of mass destruction, didn't work, just made my beans :(
He prolly deserved to be banned. I'm glad these mods are going to be online, maybe they can start banning the racist. Xbox live is a fking joke, with hacks, racists etc.
This is what happens when you give a position of power to a social outcast who was probably bullied at school.
Speaking from experience?
I feel sad inside. *tear*
Did you know that XMB won a Grammy? Well deserved. Best interface to ever grace a console. NXE is terrible.
Yeah I agree, NXE is really terrible. I wish they'd make their interface more Sony's XMB or Win7.
The best? GTFOH.
i agree with them its easier since its only icons queued up horizontally and vertically everything is easy to find
This video here should put an end to this argument. These console wars videos are awesome, completely unbiased and in depth description of each console. Each round is about a different aspect of the console and they are all worth watching but this one is about NXE vs XMB http://www.technobuffalo.co...
Seriously? How can a topic about a corrupt Xbox Live Mod evolve into a discussion of NXE vs XMB? No wait seriously? You gotta love News4Fanboys P.S. Just wanna contribute and say that both are very cool... EDIT: @cobpswii3600 It was an Emmy not a Grammy... Aren't grammy given to songs?
What the f*ck are you talking about? How does an interface win a MUSIC AWARD? Did you know that the NXE was regarded as a CES Innovations Honoree? You are an idiot.
There's probably a lot more to this story. Everything the moderator said was uncensored but we never get to see what the player in question did or said. Very very subjective stuff and I will not support this at all.
Not only did we only hear part of the story, but the moderator in my opinion gave ample warning and was fairly decisive and polite. Although the comment about forwarding to Jesus was uncalled for. However, we never heard the potential cheater speak so we really don't know how elevated the whole situation was. Since we never heard the potential cheater, I have a feeling he is hiding something. I don't see how Xbox Live moderators are corrupt from this video though?
oh well, its not like he was playing anything good....only multiplats lol, hopefully hes got a PS3, Heavy Rain is about to drop
We need to get him on the squeakers ASAP
its good that there's someone moderating online but the guy was a joke, muting that kid for wanting to know what happend?? but we dont know the full of it.
you all should visit him, i did, I sent him a message asking if I could be friends with friends with him, and he told me if I send him another message I will get suspended for a week. http://live.xbox.com/en-US/...
What's a mod talking, having a conversation, on XBL anyway? not really sure how it works, but the only time a mod should be talking to you is when someone else reports you and they hand out a warning or at least a notice. By the sound of things that guy was on a common channel just handing out bans as things went on.
They could of all just easily left that room and it would of all be avoided. End of story all mw2 ever brings is trouble and no fun. Bring on the BC 2!!!!!!
That moderator thinks he's pretty awesome doesn't he? Moderators like that are douches and need to be dealt with.
But what did this guy do to start off with? I think it's awfully convenient that this video is so one-sided.
Without knowing what the other players said its hard to criticize him from a well edited video made by someone with a grudge posted onto the net.
That moderator seems pretty tame when compared to what I would have done and said to the countless cheaters I have met on MW2.
....with some douchey punk who claims to make "4 times as much as me and half of what he deserves" Get over yourself, and hopefully this video grabs the attention of the REAL power people behind XBL and perma-ban this asshole.
Double negative. There both fools. Except one gets paycheck from MS.
