    Microsoft bans "small percentage" of Live accounts // News

    I wouldn't call 3% of the total users to be small, but that's just me.

    In response to this:

    Banned 360 users call and threaten to kill Xbox Live policy director - ConsoleTECH Forum

    Some people take video games way too seriously.

    ... and now you see why I hate the new master of Microsucks so much ... they don't like people who know about technology even so much as owning their products, much less using them. ;)

    I just thought of something mean to do ... I can use an emulator from Linux and mask it as a legitimate X-Box ... but I don't want to waste the bandwidth ... meh ... maybe when I get really bored again sometime.

    You're not saying this is Microsoft's fault are you?

    Partially ... yes, often who is at fault is not as simple as pointing fingers. But meh, they should have embraced open source like everyone else, then this would never have been an issue ... and more people would likely buy their crap X-Box to. ;)

    They banned people from live for clearly breaking of the rules in their TOS. It's not right when people modify their game systems to illegally play video games. They had the right to do this.

    You do realize, that according to the "rules", anything you purchase second hand is considered "pirated" by them, right?
