Modified Xbox 360 consoles banned from Xbox Live
After almost a year of Xbox 360 owners being able to play bootleg games with a simple firmware update, it appears Microsoft has found a way to determine those using bootleg games. Any users using bootleg copies will be banned from Xbox Live.
Currently no solution has been found by hackers.
Word came from the Xbox 360 hacking community that the Spring Update may have the ability to detect those who were playing copied games. More specifically, the system software would be able to determine the legitimacy of the disc in the DVD drive, not necessarily targeting any specific method of modification.
