1 Million Xbox Live accounts banned this week

Throughout this week, Microsoft managed to bring the rain down on 1 million Xbox Live players who they believed were using modded consoles to play pirated games online.

"The health of the video game business depends on customers paying for the genuine products and services they receive from manufacturers, retailers, and the third parties that support them," Microsoft said.

It is still not known how Microsoft managed to identify the modded accounts, but we feel sorry for the poor 360 owners who managed to get a pirated copy of Modern Warfare 2 only to have their accounts banned. Not really.

The accounts affected by this large-scale ban does not spread to the console however. Players are still able to play single player games, they just cannot use the service.
