Microsoft cracks down on XCN sites selling Halo 3 codes

XCNHalo is big. That’s one of life’s realities. It’s so big in fact that one of Microsoft‘s Xbox Community Network (XCN) sites has decided to cash in on Microsoft and Bungie‘s good faith and has been found to be selling the chance to own a Halo3 Multiplayer Beta code.

This is what BritXbox reported earlier today. The news was revealed in an email sent to BXB in which the XCN higher-ups warned all member sites of the XCN that “If your site is found to be one of the offenders you will not receive any beta codes and will be removed from the XCN with immediate effect. We will also ensure that Microsoft will no longer have any involvement with your site.”

According to Michael Rossell, Editor and Events Manager for BXB, “This is a rather disappointing turn of events but I don’t find it that surprising. There are a lot of “blaggers” in the XCN that are more than happy to take advantage of Microsoft’s good nature to forward their own ambitions.

“Perhaps the most disappointing aspect is that these people show a selfish lack of consideration for how this travesty might impact on future opportunities provided by the XCN. I’d hate to see our community missing out because someone wanted to make a quick buck.”
