This mass banning by Microsoft is a master-stroke.

These million or so people will run out and buy the basic 360 to replace it. They already have the peripherals etc.

This then further boosts sales figures and makes the impact of ps3 slim appear less over the xmas period

People with modded consoles have been banned since the 360 was released so it isn't that surprising that alot of those who pirate MW2 will be banned (especially since it's a hugely popular game. .

Was talking to someone who got banned few days ago and thats exactly what he's going to do, go out and bu a new one, he reckons how long it took them to ban him against how much he saved its worth it, personaly I think he's a muppet :)

I say it's great that people who mod their consoles get banned online. They deserve it for paying nothing on owning games that makes huge loss on game developers. I also remembered that Sony did the same with PS2 as well. The mod chip on the PS2 can be detected online if you playing copy games, resulting in banned from the network.

I don't know why this Xbox related thread is created on Playstation forums.

lol just exactly what a lot of people seem to believe is the case, and to be honest I do think its a part of it to, so they can artificially boost christmas sales.

Makes me laugh.

Those who feel this is like a conspiracy to boost sales.

 

If you made a product, and people started messing with said product to rip YOU OFF... losing you money.

Would you be like... aww that's super duper. let em off.

 

Erm.....

NO?

Except not everyone who was banned modded the console to rip them off, some modded with better fans, self repaired RROD etc and others modded so they could use a bigger hard drive then the rip off ones microsoft make you buy, which to me is unfair, I am all for banning pirates. But the others, I'm not so sure.

Yes but... 

It does say in the TOC, that ANY modding of the console is not allowed - if you can't read then don't complain when something goes wrong.

This is because Microsoft don't want to be help liable for damages caused by a modded console - it's for safety. If a non modded console goes wrong - they can put their hands up and be like.. fair play - out fault... Say if it set on fire and burned your face off.

 

But if you mod it and it causes something to go badly wrong, and you try to blame them?

I'd do the same thing - they are covering their arses. It's stricktly business and health and safety is very important, I doubt they want to take any risk.

 

Worst case scenario yeah, but still... a possible scenario.

What if you were modding and you didn't wire it back properly and it caused a fire - you could turn around and say yeh their console done this...

Microsoft has software installed on Xbox Live to detect any mods done to the console. Sony done the same thing with PS2's with mod chips. I have no doubts Sony will do the same with PS3s.
