In what is going around as a MW2 inspired event, Microsoft has banned over a million Xbox Live users who have been using modded consoles online. Word has it that MW2 appeared as a torrent before the official launch and that IW and Activision had been pressuring MS to do something about it.
And they did. Having never really wanted a modded Xbox 360 I can’t imagine how all these people feel not being able to get there game on online. What I did hear at the GameCrazy midnight launch was that only the actual modded Xbox 360′s are banned and not the the user’s account, therein meaning you could get a new Xbox 360 and be ok getting back online using your current account.
