A friendly message from the Major: modding your 360 gets you banned, duh
If you choose to mod your Xbox 360 to play *cough* backups *cough*, you void your warranty and your right to access Xbox Live. It’s that simple. Some people just don’t seem to get it though, and flamed certain forums in protest of their banning. Go to the full article to read a neat explanation of banning from Major Nelson himself.

If this idea fails to penetrate, here’s a neat explanation from Major Nelson himself. Apparently, some people still protest their banning in certain forums:
IÂ’ve gotten a few messages and seen some forum threads pop up on console bannings so I thought IÂ’d post and let folks know whatÂ’s up.
In our our continued effort to keep gameplay safe and secure for our community of more than 14 million members, Microsoft has taken action against a small percentage of Xbox 360 consoles that have been illegally modified in order to play pirated games.
We will continue to employ and bolster anti-piracy security measures to counter piracy in the gaming industry and improve security in the Xbox LIVE community.
Have a nice day.
