Microsoft Actually Bans 1 million users

Reports are continuing to come out about Microsoft banning users from Xbox Live for having modified consoles.While no official figures have been released and Microsoft is staying tight lipped, the speculated and/or leaked figures initially read as high as 600,000, now it's looking that over a million users, one in twenty, could have been banned. All Microsoft has said in regards to the matter, is that people should know not to cheat, or play pirated games.

360 consoles come as standard with DRM protection that detects the use of pirated games. However, users have found a way round this with a simple modificiation; it's this mod thats got them banned from xbox live though.
