Microsoft bans Xbox Live accounts with modded consoles

And so it begins, yet again. Just like with Windows, Microsoft is slowly taking intrusive measures against it’s customers. If you own a modified Xbox 360, the next time you login to XBox Live you will probably be greeted by this lovely message, thus rendering your console, and account, permanently banned from the service.

Looks like Microsoft hasn’t realized that supporting piracy, even if unofficially, helps sell consoles. If it weren’t for piracy, Sony wouldn’t be renowned as it is in the world of console gaming. And with them (Sony) catching up fast, in terms of sales numbers (at least in Europe), I don’t see how this measure will help Microsoft remain in second place for long.

Shouldn’t both of those companies try to sell more consoles instead of taking measures that will make them sell less? Nintendo doesn’t even have to struggle to remain in first place, they’re doing all the bad PR work for them.
