>> It looks like Microsoft started a new wave of bans against modified DVD firmwares or DVD+/-R DL discs.
Several users on our forums and on IRC report their Xbox 360 has been banned from LIVE today. We get reports of Toshiba-Samsung and Hitachi-LG drives banned with both Xtreme and even the newer iXtreme firmwares. However we also see many reports of people who are currently on LIVE and have no been banned (yet). No reports of banned BenQ drives yet (but few of these drives have been flashed yet).
I just want to make sure I'm folliwing along. This thread is about stealing, right?
But a majority of the people that have the mod, as well as modded original Xboxes, are scumbags and steal games via burned discs and/or hard drives.
That was the great thing about the PS2. I was able to just load a disc and copy the game disc onto a hard drive. Still waiting for one for the PS3.
