If you’re one of those nogoodnik pirates, playing illicitly gained Xbox 360 games and have taken your console online, be prepared for a mighty banning.
According to a unconfirmed reports on few forums, Microsoft has started instituting bans on consoles and gamertags that are in violation of the code of conduct.
If these rumours of a new banwave are true, modifying your console to play â€œbackupsâ€ will get your entire console banned from Xbox Live. Other transgressions, like editing your gamercard to falsely boost your gamerscore, cheating and glitching will net a ban on just your gamertag. Hosting those awful infected Call of Duty lobbies could get you axed from the service as well. I don’t really understand why some feel the need to cheat online, or artificially inflate their gamerscores; it all just smacks of an inferiority complex. I suck at games, and I’m just fine with that.
I’d take this all with a grain of salt, but if you’re rocking Xbox Live with a modded console, you should probably unplug the ethernet cable. Actually, do those of us who pay for our games a favour and unplug it anyway, banwave or not.
