Submission + - Microsoft Disconnects Modded X-Box Users (bbc.co.uk)

S-4'N3 writes: The BBC reports that Microsoft has disconnected approximately 600,000 X-Box users from X-Box Live because the devices they are using have been modified, either with software or with new chips, to play pirated games.

"Microsoft confirmed that it had banned a 'small percentage' of the 20 million Xbox Live users worldwide. Microsoft said that modifying an Xbox 360 console 'violates' the service's 'terms of use' and would result in a player being disconnected."
