Quoted from http://the-magicbox.com- Microsoft has begin to ban modded Xbox 360 systems from connecting to Xbox Live, starting this week Xbox Live server rejects Xbox 360 consoles equipped with modchips from connecting to any Xbox Live services. Microsoft explained that this step is to ensure the integrity of their service, protection of their partners and benefits of Xbox Live users. Those who were banned can still keep their profile and achievements when they reconnect with an unmodded Xbox 360 console.[
I found this quite interesting. Now I myself don't own an xbox 360 but I was planning on getting on sometime in the near future and of course I was going to mod it like I did with my ps2 but now it seems I won't be able too until someone comes up with a way to bypass this. Now I'm wondering how they know if your system is modified does it send some sort of specs to the microsoft xbox live DB that shows you have a mod chip installed or what? I know eventually mod chip makers will eventually learn how to ghost their hardware so its not detected in a systems check if thats how their doing it but until that time comes just another temporary way of stopping people of playing games on a backup dvd.
So what do you guys think about this?
