Microsoft cuts off thousands of Xbox 360 Live users
Online reports suggest that up to 600,000 Xbox 360 users may have been disconnected from Microsoft's online gaming service platform, Xbox Live, for modifying their consoles to play pirated games.
The statement also said, “Our commitment to combating piracy and support safer and more secure gameplay for the more than 20 million members of our Xbox LIVE community remains a top priority.”
Gamers who attempted to login received a message that read, "Your console has been banned from Xbox."
However, reports suggest that the ban does not stop the console from working and only affects a gamer's Xbox Live account.
