“So, Microsoft bans modified XBoxes from …”
So, Microsoft bans modified XBoxes from XBox Live. I may be alone, but I honestly think that's a reasonable move in the favor of -- plain and simple -- gameplay. The whole online "play with random folks on the Internet" is only fun as long noone is cheating. Mod your box as you wish, but don't ruin my game-night with using an "invulnerability hack". I think that putting mod-chips into the XBox certainly isn't an evil act as such (if I wish I can just as much gut the box and turn it into a cat toilet), but the consequence of being able to mess around with the games and spoil other's fun by being unfair in the online-game certainly is.
