Default Microsoft takes action against piracy on Xbox 360

Happy Halloween! You're banned from Xbox Live.

We hope your recent forays into piracy merely involve you donning a hook and eyepatch for a debaucherous costume party, or else you likely received a message from Microsoft like the headline of this post. The company recently dispatched a wave of bans to owners of modded Xbox 360s who've been playing pirated copies of games. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed to IGN that "we have taken action against a small percentage of consoles that have been modified to play pirated game discs."

The spokesperson went on to explain that this batch of console bans wasn't conducted on any particular time frame, and that the company was merely following up on its standing policy against piracy. In other words, Microsoft isn't trying to ruin your Halloween weekend -- it just, you know, worked out that way.

Lol, well that's a good move into their money jar.
It's sucks for the 360 players who've done that.
I'm pro-piracy, but whenever you like the game, then you should buy it to support the developers.
